Jessica and Jared met online. For the third date, Jared invited Jess to attend a military ball with him. While she felt the move was a bit forward she said yes because she just so happened to have a dress that she had been dying to wear somewhere. When the duo got the ball they spent most of the evening chatting with friends and before they knew it the ball was over. Jess loves to dance and her one regret for this third date was that they haven’t had enough dancing time. Jared won all of the hearts over when he drove Jess to the top of the Liberty Memorial and they spend the next while dancing to music from his phone overlooking a twinkling Kansas City skyline. (I mean right! How could she not marry him after a move like that?!?)
When they started planning their Loose Mansion wedding they decided that there must be lots of dancing and brunch. The staff at Loose Mansion pulled off an impeccable and delicious brunch and Funk Syndicate kept everyone on the dance floor despite the early time. It was such a joy to be a part of this incredibly fun day. Enjoy!
From our bride Jessica:
Favorite Moment of the Day: Saying our vows and exchanging rings
Inspiration for the wedding: Love of breakfast and historical places. Appreciation of how far everyone came to be with us on our special day.
Advice to brides planning in the future: Delegate so you can enjoy the process. Remember the wedding only lasts a day but the marriage is forever. (cheesy I know)
A huge thanks to Kate Ellison for being my second photographer.
