Whitney & Randy {Loose Park and River Market Event Place Wedding Photography}

To me nothing says romance in Kansas City like a wedding ceremony at the Loose Park Rose Garden.  Whitney and Randy’s beautiful (and crazy hot) Kansas City wedding day was a perfect fit for the romance of the blooms and the modern feel of the River Market Event Space.  These two kept everyone laughing all day long and everyone dancing through the night.  Enjoy!

From our bride, Whitney:

Favorite Moment of the Day: I honestly loved the entire day – from getting ready with my closest friends and family, to the first look, taking pictures, and the reception… It really was great!

Inspiration for the wedding: I can’t say we really had any specific inspiration but I think we tried to make our ceremony and reception very ‘us’. From the decor to the music and the food, I think it was a pretty accurate reflection of our personalities and taste. 

Advice to brides planning in the future: I’m definitely no expert but one thing that I think it important is staying true to your own taste and style… We’re not fancy or elaborate in any way and sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in going a route that doesn’t necessarily match you or your spouse’s personality. We nearly made a couple of missteps but fortunately we were able to take a step back and recognize that all the frills just wasn’t us. Also, we worked largely with independent business owners like yourself (for flowers, cake, makeup, hair, photography, coordination, etc.) which I think resulted in much better customer service and end results. 

One contact I’d like to share is Kay Erickson (bloomstoshare@gmail.com) – she picks up flowers after receptions and takes them to hospice patients. She volunteers her services which is amazing. It’s so wonderful that our flowers went on to brighten their day. {How amazing is this!!}

A huge thank you to my second photographer Kyle Lackey.
