From the very first moment Christina called me from her Idaho area code phone number I was totally hooked on these two. I loved their initial ideas for an old hollywood/Great Gatsby themed wedding day and Christina and Jake (and their amazing team of professionals) completely nailed it! From their costumed engagement session in downtown Kansas City to their perfect day at The Bauer Event Space, these two showed how to have class and style and still party the night away! Enjoy!
From the bride Christina:
Favorite Moment of the Day: Our favorite moment of the day was when we (finally) sat down at our sweetheart table for dinner. After a year and a half of planning, a day of chaos and go-go-going all day, we were finally married. Looking around at how beautiful the space was, everyone who was there just for us, enjoying their food and conversation. It was an amazing feeling that we will never forget.
Inspiration for the wedding: Classic black and white, with a touch of Great Gatsby gold
Advice to brides planning in the future: Elope! 🙂 Just kidding, all we can say is ENJOY. No matter what decoration didn’t end up where planned, who’s crazy Uncle drank too much, or if the DJ booth went crashing to the ground, your wedding is yours and that’s what makes it perfect.
Special thanks to my second photographer Mike Tsai.
Many thanks to the Kansas City Museum for letting us use their gorgeous grounds for the formal pictures.
Between the tears and the laughter there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Christina surprised everyone with a special song accompanied by their amazing musicians.
No one except Christina and Jake knew about their silly twist on the classic garter toss. It was a huge hit!
