Tom and Aly were married on the most beautiful (and warm!) June day at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Their wedding was chic, heart-felt, and had no shortage of smiles, happy tears, and excited dance moves. These two met through work- each a vital part of Kansas City’s Sports Media – Aly, a sports broadcaster, and Tom, a storytelling director for Let It Fly sports media agency. It only seemed fitting that their wedding take place in the heart of Kansas City, where they met, and a city with a deep sense of hometown pride.
Some of my favorite moments from the day included candid moments of Aly and her sweet momma helping her get ready, a portrait of Tom in front of the cameras he’s normally opposite, their beautiful ceremony, and the jaw dropping surprise Tom’s late father, Earle, sent straight from heaven. Scroll on to soak in their beautiful Kauffman Center Wedding!
Paolini did an incredible job on Tom’s custom suit- featuring special touches as a nod to his late father, Earle’s plane and tail number on the jacket.

Normally, a storm on your wedding day wouldn’t be a highlight, but this one was extra special! Just after Tom & Aly cut their cake, the sky began to shift into the most vibrant orange color and a rainbow appeared and lasted through the couple’s first dance. Considering Tom’s father was a pilot, the signal of his presence wasn’t missed by a soul – we were awe-struck at his bold, beautiful, perfectly timed gift.
