Wedding: Mark and Joni Opara in Kansas City

My mindset was set on a cool 5 hour journey to Kansas where I had photographed a wedding for the Opara family a few years back. As a precaution, whenever I have such out of state assignments, I cross check my coordinates on Mapquest to be sure. On this occasion, I got the shock of my life when I realized that I was actually destined to Kansas City in Missouri; a 9 hour journey and not Kansas State.

Well, I arrive Kansas City after a pretty interesting and captivating road trip which by wind assist and speed ratio, I was able to cut off 2 hours. The Opara’s in their usual hospitality fashion had organized a rehearsal dinner and guest welcome reception; many of whom had arrived from distant locations including Africa.  (to be continued).
