the story of
jori + dillan
and wedding photography + videography in Kansas City
They have her cat and her college roommate’s allergies to thank for bringing them together, with her starting her sophomore year at Mizzou in sudden need of a new apartment where her pet wouldn’t be a problem.
As it turned out, what she found was not only a new set of roommates but also the start of what would be a great love story with one of them — ultimately leading to this wedding day! About their vision for the day, Jori shares:
We wanted a Christmas theme with pine green, holly berry and pinecone accents. And we chose Boulevard as our venue because Dillan loves it. Another special detail was our processional song: “Yellow” by Coldplay. I have an inside joke with my sister, who was our officiant, that no matter where we are, we always let each other know when Coldplay is on. So I hoped she’d laugh when she heard it.
Jori and Dillan: As a cat lover myself, your story might be one of my new favorites. And I’m also a huge fan of an outfit switch to a stylish jumpsuit for the dancing portion of the evening — especially after seeing the look pulled off perfectly on your day! That and all your other little details made this a beautiful event to capture, and we hope your photos and video footage help you always hold onto it.
