Maddie and Jack’s wedding has me at a loss for words (which doesn’t happen often...). Two of the kindest families joined together for a day of celebration. Their love for one another outshined the (blowing) torrential rains that fell outside as they became Mr. and Mrs. Hannifan. ⠀ @wedinkc brought visions to life with a floral arch that doubled as a photo booth backdrop and transformed the @hotelpresident1926 ballroom to a magical space for celebration. ⠀ Maddie, Jack, Mark and Pam (x two)- It was an honor to be part of your family’s celebration. Like I told you last night, can we do it again next weekend?!
Pretty things are in the works in the office today! And sometimes, when you have the luxury of working from home, your office becomes your back patio. There is something about the bird chirping and the sounds of lawn mowers that gives me all the creative energy. . Where do you do your best work?
A classic vintage monogram, paired with a crest and foliage is the perfect blend of class and timelessness. All of this, makes me a BIG fan.
I never knew how great a mother’s love was until I was blessed with my own children. ⠀ Mom, words and actions will never convey what you mean to me, but I am so thankful to have you as my mom and our children’s Nana. ⠀ I am so lucky that both my grandmother’s have been present in my life. My Grandma Jo, who lives down the street from me, and my Gram, who although no longer physically present today, made a huge impact in my life. ⠀ Wishing every mother a Happy Mother’s Day! I pray your cup was filled with laughter and love today and every day.
I did an impromptu Insta live earlier this afternoon talking all things wedding day timeline. In the future, I will give better notice of when I am going to pop in with my lives.... ⠀ Here are some cliff notes: 1) hair and makeup should not take more than 3 hours 2) bridesmaids get dressed prior to Bride 3) Bridal party into hiding 30 minutes prior to Ceremony 4) During the reception, if the photographer’s contract ends at 9 and you want exit or sunset photos stage these photos while guest’s are eating. 5) Keep a timely flow during reception to hold guest’s attention- grand entrance, first dance, cut cake, welcome and Blessing, salads are served, dinner is served, toasts and then remaining formal dancing. ⠀ What are some of your biggest timeline questions or hiccups?
We had a blast playing with friends at Lenexa Recreation Center’s splash time. What are some of your favorite kid friendly activities in Kansas City?
