My Wedding

I've finally gathered together my favorite moments from our wedding in October! Nicole's fab wedding recap prompted me to finally post mine. Long overdue, I know. I wanted to give you guys a peek at all of our vendors we used as well in case any of you Kansas City brides-to-be are reading. The wedding was October 25th 2014 in Kansas City, Missouri. The ceremony was held at St. John's United Methodist Church and the reception was at Californos. It was everything I had hoped for and thankfully everything went as planned! Thank you to our photographer, LemonLime Photography for capturing the day beautifully! I worked with our wedding planner, Madi, to come up with a design concept. I wanted it to look very natural with rustic elements. She has fabulous taste so I knew I would love anything she came up with - and I did! We had a signature cocktail called the "Strong Brewed Apple Cider" (my married name is Brewer, get it?) haha. We also wanted to tie in a fall theme with Louisburg Cider Mill's individually packaged apple cider donuts on the tables. I have to say that hiring a wedding planner was the best investment ever. The day of, we didn't have to worry about logistics or any little details - she took care of it all! We could truly relax and just enjoy the day.
