Winter weddings bring thoughts of cold weather and snow. Jessie and Kyle's wedding had just that! Candlelight, Christmas trees, festive greenery, flowers and all the love from these two and family and friends warmed their day with joy and love.
Fall weddings typically bring upon thoughts of warm shades of orange, red and gold. However Amie and Alex had a different color palette in mind for their October wedding: white, light pink and bright blue. While this time of year usually brings along chilly weather, this weekend was an exceptionally warm day hitting 80°! This was a wonderful surprise as the ceremony was held outside. The beautiful scenery of Eighteen Ninety Event Space provided the perfect backdrop of the transitioning trees and an open view of rolling hills. Every element, from the crystal chandeliers to the French "Cinderella" pumpkins, gave Amie and Alex's day the look of rustic sophistication.
Lydia's Restaurant in downtown Kansas City was the perfect location for Sarah and Drew's intimate wedding. The outdoor area is lush with greenery creating a great entrance into the dining space. There was an abundance of sunlight on this day that spilled perfectly into the indoor area . Sarah loved the look of twinkling candlelight at night so we made sure to have plenty of our green mosaic votives on all the tables. Along with the different shades of white flowers, light linen elements and soft candlelight Sarah and Drew's wedding had a vintage vibe that was both clean and romantic.
Ceremony & Reception
May is one of the most popular wedding months, so are the light blush and pink colors we see so often. However the light pink mixed with apricot and orange shades in Jen and Mike's florals created a refreshing color pallet for their spring wedding.
Simple Elegance Wedding Coordination Firm has what they call a Mini Shoot Monday, which is just what it sounds like - a small inspiration photoshoot put together by one of their wonderful wedding planners. We really enjoy working with Simple Elegance so we were thrilled when Kindra asked us to help. Kindra wanted something very elegant yet modern. She was inspired by pinks and green but wanted something more interesting. We used a mix of pinks and greens complimented with orange, purple and deep red, as well as many different textures. The elegance of ornate china and candle light softened the more modern elements of the paperie and tall laser cut crystal candle sticks.
Every fall Arrowhead Stadium is packed with fans ready to cheer on the Kansas City Chiefs. However, this June the stadium served as a nod to Aryn and David's favorite team as well as their wedding site. Aryn's bridesmaids wore red dresses of their choice. Their bouquets were a mix of the palest of blush roses, light green and pops of bright red while the bridal bouquet was the same color scheme it was made more lush with extra roses and leucandendron which made it really stand out.
Spring is always a popular wedding season. It has relatively mild temperatures and provides a popular seasonal flower, the peony. This full and soft bloom was perfect for the traditional and elegant look Micaela and Tim wanted. We used a range of light pinks, green and varying shades of cream to enhance the ambiance and "fairytale-look" of their ceremony at Our Lady of Sorrows. Their reception at Indian Hills County Club had a more rich and luxurious feel with a mix of low centerpieces and tall arrangements atop antiqued bronze candelabras. The look of their wedding from beginning to end flowed together seamlessly.
Tess and John had a traditional early June wedding. Sometimes brides let you take creative control, but Tess played a big part in helping us to create her vision, which we LOVED. She really wanted the florals to be soft and romantic. We used a mix of the palest of pinks, apricot and blue along with classic ivory and blush. From the ceremony to the reception the look was lovely and refined.
We had the privilege to work with some Kansas City's amazing wedding vendors on this photoshoot for the Hills Magazine. We created the floral garland to be a lush centerpiece, reminiscent of springtime gardens. We used our tall crystal candle holders to hold boxwood orbs. The height adds some interest while crystal added an element of elegance.
We work with Kathy a lot with weddings so when it came to her daughter's baby shower we were excited to help! They hosted the shower at the Vintage House, a cute home that is open for events (and right across the parking lot from us). We kept the floral arrangements clean using all white and green with accents of wood and berries for a natural look.
Eileen and Ryan's wedding is a great example of how you can make a little go a long way. They both really liked to color blue and Eileen loved the idea of simple arrangements with hydrangea. To make the hydrangea centerpieces fun and really pop we added bright blue flat cane. This really helped to give the design some dimension and a lot more interest.
To keep the bouquets from being too blue and monochromatic, we added a big mixture of whites and soft grey. Once the ceremony was over the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets were placed in vases and used as centerpieces at the reception.
As far as wedding proposals go it is usually the girl who eagerly anticipates "the question". However, in an extraordinary turn of events it was Kyle who received a proposal... from Helzberg Diamonds. Kyle would get the ring of his choice but there was a catch, he had to propose to his girlfriend Madison in the next 48 hours. Luckily for him he had one of Kansas City's premier event planners, Nellie, with Events by Nellie to help him pull this off. She hooked him up with all the vendors he needed to make this a spectacular moment. One of his destinations our flower shop. Thanks to Pinterest we discovered that Madison really likes purple flowers. With only this little bit of information I worked with Kyle to create a bouquet that he thought Madison would love.
Kyle and I came to the conclusion that an arm bouquet would be the perfect first impression for when Madison would meet him on stage of the Kauffman Center. However, the main event would be when Kyle drops to one knee and opens Helzberg's little red box.
The planning didn't stop there... the Bentley waiting outside for them was adorned with a fresh floral garland. It beautifully framed their picture perfect kiss.
