This weekend, Vince and I are taking a much-needed vacation out in the wild camping. I've been lucky enough to travel for work three times during this pandemic, but Vince has been home since March. As you can imagine, he's extra excited to get out of the house and stare at something new!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Normally when we travel, our goal is to get to our destination as quickly as possible to maximize our fun. For this trip, we opted to drive to keep things as safe as possible. Plus, like how do you fly to a remote national park in the middle of nowhere? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We seem to only enjoy road trips when camping is involved. Maybe it's because camping in itself is a slow and calming activity, and the drive there is merely an extension of that zen. Regardless, we are enjoying the journey so far and can't wait to share our adventures soon!
This. cake.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That. chandelier.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This. venue!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I could go on and on about how beautifully Macy & Alex's wedding reception came together under the expert coordination and care of her team (special shoutout to @theguildkc and @wildhillflowers!) but I'll let this cake and those flowers and that chandelier speak for themselves :)
Oftentimes wedding gowns are works of art and attention-grabbers all on their own. You don't want to distract from their beauty by surrounding them with statement jewelry! Instead, opt for statement earrings that help pull the attention back to you!
Jack picked out Katie's ring with the help of Katie's sister. I think we can all agree that it's an absolutely stunning, classic choice. For me, yellow gold feels more classic and elegant, especially when paired with a beautiful oval cut center stone!
When I first asked Katie & Jack where they'd like to take their engagement photos, some of Kansas City's most iconic landmarks came to mind. The Nelson was at the top of their list, and it's no surprise why :)
Last night I finally got to meet Katie & Jack in person and celebrate their engagement! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These two lovebirds have deep roots in Kansas City, where they grew up together, but now call Dallas home. Last night, the city pulled out all the stops to welcome them home for their engagement session. I mean, just LOOK at this!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can't wait for Katie & Jack's wedding next summer alongside @nelliesparkman's expert coordination! And shout out to @bronzedandblushed for making our girl look extra gorgeous!
