There’s something incredibly special about witnessing a new marriage come to life, especially when I am literally one of the only few who get to see it. (Until my images are published, that is!) It is truly an honor to be invited to watch two people dedicate their lives to one another, and it was the absolute perfect summer day for it, too. It’s not many times in late July you get a perfectly mild, breezy, white-fluffy-cloud kind of day, but Mark and Jamie did for their intimate elopement ceremony at Chrisman Manor. Their love of country life and close proximity to home brought them to Chrisman, a quaint ceremony and reception hall in Osawatomie, Kansas, right outside of Lawrence. As their immediate family, myself, and a timid herd of cattle watched on from their hideaways in the trees, Mark and Jamie were wed. Enjoy their story and selection of our favorite portraits from their day!
