An Elegant Vineyard Wedding at Bourgmont Winery with Shane and Megan

Congratulations to Shane and Megan on their stunning vineyard wedding at Bourgmont Winery in Bucyrus, KS! I was so honored to be part of their special day and to capture these beautiful memories for them from start to finish. From the romantic outdoor ceremony set against rolling hills of grape vines to their "dog of honor", and hype reception, every moment was absolutely perfect.

My favorite detail of this wedding day was the couple's decision to forego a First Look. Instead, they exchanged handwritten letters prior to the ceremony and waited to see each other until Megan walked down the aisle. This decision created an emotional reaction in Shane that you MUST SEE when he saw his bride enter the ceremony courtyard.

Megan and Shanes elegant vineyard wedding will not only inspire you with beautiful details but will also show you a full wedding day, with plenty of beautiful portrait moments, is possible without a first look! Scroll to check out this stunning day from getting ready to the sparkler exit.

If you're planning your dream wedding day and wondering if it's possible to not have a first look on your wedding day, you've come to the right place! I photograph wedding days ALL THE TIME without first looks. Let's discuss your best day ever and what that could look like with me as your photographer in detail during our consultation!
