Jessica and Jason were married on May 15, 2010. I was so lucky to have them as a client. They were so cute together. Congratulations to the Perrymans!

Jessica's gorgeous dress and shoes waiting for their debut.

The first meeting and the first kiss!

Definitely a framer. I just love this picture....

The Wedding Party out at the River Market for some pre-nuptial photos.

The cocktail hour was in the gallery at Third Eye Event Space following the ceremony.

Jessica and Jason really wanted to include their dog Riley, and most importantly show their gratitude for the kennel that they adopted from. They chose to make a donation to Wayside Waifs to support the organization.
Delicious cake from Lynne Mueller with Icing on the Cake.

The reception was upstairs and decorated with bold blue and greens to compliment the modern look and feel of the room.

First dance for the bride and groom. So sweet!

Sassy little bride on the dance floor to end the perfect evening with family and friends.

Congratulations again to Jessica and Jason! It was such a pleasure getting to know you.

Bella Bridesmaid on Style Me Pretty!

Recently we did a mock wedding with a group of very talented wedding vendors from Kansas City for an Inspiration to Realty shoot for Style Me Pretty. This was the inspiration board that we worked from:
For JV -

To see what we created - and for a list of all the fabulous vendors - visit all three of the posts at Style Me Pretty. The bride's dress is the Christie dress from LulaKate and the bridesmaid dresses were from Simple Silhouettes. And here is a sneak peek of the behind the scenes of us putting everything together:

Eagen Halter and Jason Kane

Eagen and Jason were such a fun couple! They were married on April 17th, 2010.

Their wedding had small touches of the Wizard of Oz in everything. Her shoes were a twist on the ruby slippers with just a few touches of red and green. The bridesmaids wore these darling emerald colored dresses, and the bride was wearing a dress made just for her by her mom, Maureen. Such a cute family!

I just love the moment when a bride walks down with her dad. It is such a once in a lifetime experience.

Eagen changed into the more elaborate ruby slippers for the reception.

The cocktail hour was in the art gallery at Arts Incubator. They had a wine and cheese tasting, and were encouraged to visit the art galleries in the crossroads district.

Arts Incubator was set with custom quilled reserved cards made by a friend of Eagen and Jason's. The doves on the top of the cake have been passed down through Eagen's family for generations.

Congratulations Eagen and Jason Kane!

Unique Save The Dates

For a very unique and out of the box wedding we have coming up in September, the very talented Kalyn Denno with Lilah Paper created the coolest Save the Dates. The wedding reception will be held at a private house of the bride's family. The groom drew a picture of the gate and drive leading up to the house and then Kalyn included that design on a wood grain postcard. Can't wait to see the invitations!
