The Big Reveal {Kansas City’s Premier Bridal Show}

Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the Big Reveal.  For those of you that have never heard of the Big Reveal, it is a bridal show featuring some of Kansas City’s best wedding professionals in a slight unique way.  A bride and her entourage chooses one of the six featured downtown Kansas City wedding venues to start.  Each venue featured one professional from all of the most needed wedding categories; photographers, caterers, wedding planners, gowns and fashion, cakes, florists, music, you name it someone was there.  After pursuing though the first venue, picking up amazing treats and free drinks, the party loads onto a number of Kansas City’s best limousines and party buses for a trip to start it all over again at the next venue.

I was placed at one of my favorite intimate venues in the West Bottoms, The Amigoni Urban Winery.  Not only does this place feature amazing architecture, but their wines are to die for.  They have their very own tasting room and are open to the public as well (wink, wink).  I had the immense pleasure of being featured with Jessica from Hitched Planning and Florals and the super sweet girls from Ultrapom Event Rentals.  Scrape the Plate Catering kept everyone stuffed all day and The Vintage Plate Company made sure that all food was served in style.  Iced Art provided a gorgeous cake and Forte Quartet filled the place with incredible music.   The Knot was even on hand passing out awesome swag bags and this season’s edition of the Kansas/Missouri Knot Magazine (which happens to feature Allie and Jake’s amazing Union Station wedding and if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, you should definitely pick up a copy).

If you missed the Big Reveal this time around, keep your eyes peeled for another round next March.  Enjoy!


Ultrapom provided the gorgeous ball lights. I am pretty sure every wedding needs string lights somewhere. They create the prettiest backdrop for images.

From warm dips and meatballs, to simple crudities and seasoned cashews, these guys kept us all very happy.The-Big-Reveal-Kansas-City-Wedding-Show-Photographer-4 The-Big-Reveal-Kansas-City-Wedding-Show-Photographer-5 The-Big-Reveal-Kansas-City-Wedding-Show-Photographer-6 Jessica brought a stunning bridal bouquet tied with vintage lace as well as small arrangements to keep the space bright and fresh. She is responsible for the stunning statement piece about the banquet table. Tied branches with droplet vases were the perfect fit for Amigoni’s high ceilings and classic architecture.

See the brown macaroons? Yeah, those were mocha flavored. I almost died.
