The Grand Event Center Wedding- Matt and Ashley

I got to shoot this wonderful wedding on New Year’s Eve with Nicole Akers Photography! This was my first time shooting at the Grand Event Center in Grandview, and I loved it!

It was pretty frigid that day, but Matt, Ashley, and the whole bridal party were troopers for braving the cold with us to get some amazing shots! Thankfully, there was a lovely indoor spot for some warm indoor photos too!

Congratulations to Matt and Ashley, and a huge Thank You to Nicole for bringing me along!
