If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times. What I wouldn't give for a wedding re-do. Don't get me wrong. My wedding was handsdown the most spectacularly wonderful day of my life. It was total perfection. But it was also 6 years and two babies ago. And the thought of donning a pretty dress and styling a fancy fete is almost too much to resist. As it was for this next gorgeous couple. Who designed a wedding re-do that blew me away and that suited them to utter perfection.

From the bride... Hunter and I are already married, but we wanted to do a wedding all our own this time. We just wanted things to be simple and our own. The wedding "redo" was held in a old building loft with lots of great character in downtown Kansas City. Small, intimate and modern. I'm an art teacher and very creative, but I let the professionals take reins on their ideas, and I love how it came together. The the invitations were great because their reply cards were open for drawings. I wore a dress designed and made by my friend that was inspired by Vera Wang. The floral designer was amazing because they painted a branch black and hung it above the ceremony space with white blooms hanging from the smaller branches. They styled the reception pieces perfectly to give us a classic look with a modern twist. Our stylist made the setting with old furniture and pieces from home to give it an intimate feeling. The cake was amazing because the black flower was the perfect accent to tie in my dress. There was a picture that I had drawn of Hunter and I that hung above the cake table that really brought in a personal touch of us. It was such a fun, intimate wedding.
