CJ + Jerad | A Topeka Great Overland Station wedding

CJ and Jerad live in Florida, but hail from Topeka – so coming “home” for a December wedding was surely a shock to the system! It was a fairly pleasant day for early winter, however, and the sun shone bright which is always a blessing this time of year (I say as I type with dreary gray skies and drizzle outside my window!). This couple’s wedding marked my 3rd of the year not only at the ceremony location (Christ the King Catholic Church) but also the reception site, the Great Overland Station. It was also the last wedding of the year that I worked alongside Lyn Scardina, who did the wedding planning for the couple. After the ceremony we headed to Jerad’s alma mater, Washburn University, for some fun photos in the baseball stadium. See, Jerad’s a baseball player (by profession!) so it was only fitting. We then headed to a local bar so the wedding party could watch the KU basketball game (sports run deep with this group!) before the reception. Here’s the story of their day, as told by myself and second shooter Mike Tsai. Warning: CJ and Jerad’s daughter Avenley provides some serious cute overload.
