For Jade and Brandon it was a match made eharmony style. They clicked instantly and Brandon popped the question on a beach at sunset only four months later. After a year of planning, bonding, and growing together their Kansas City wedding day could not have been more perfect. The rooftop at Terrace on Grand was the perfect spot for their wedding ceremony overlooking a sea of blue steel and skyline at the most perfect moment of sunshine. Enjoy!
From our bride, Jade:
Favorite Moment of the Day: Oh my gosh it is so hard to pick just one!! i would have to say that my favorite moment of the day was in the elevator going down from the ceremony after we had just gotten married. We escaped everyone and got to have our own moment. It was a good time to process what had just taken place and was a time for Brandon and I to just focus on each other before the madness of everyone flooding us with congratulations and hugs began.
Inspiration for the wedding: Pinterest haha. Actually I got a lot off Pinterest but my inspiration came from the colors of the ocean and the romantic beauty of the central coast where Brandon and I got engaged.
Advice to brides planning in the future: My greatest advice would be to get a coordinator at least for the day of the event. Our wedding was stress free because we were lucky enough to have it at the Terrace on Grand and Emad and Maggie took care of everything! They coordinated with vendors and ran everything so smoothly on the day that I was able to relax and just enjoy the day. Also, figure out a couple big ticket items you really want to look amazing and are important to your fiancé and you and spend more money on those couple things. Then for everything else be more budget conscious and either DIY or find friends who have a hidden talent at flowers or can make a cake, it helps with the budget a lot.
I would encourage people to do whatever they need to do to make sure they have a relaxing and stress free day! I didn’t worry about a single thing and it made it truly the best day ever!
