More Exclusive Photos of Nikki Ferrell + Tyler VanLoo’s Wedding Day

There’s not a doubt in my mind that Nikki and Tyler are the real deal. They’ve got a love that beams through every single photo Alea Lovely snaps, from their stunning engagement session to part one of their wedding day. And while their ballroom reception was designed to a T by Madison Sanders Events, it was moments like these that really stole the show. Cheers to the newlyweds, and the adventure ahead!

 

“The reception was beautiful and we danced the night away…

It truly was magical, yet over way too quickly.”

-Nikki

From Madison of Madison Sanders EventsNikki came to me around 6 months out from her wedding. At this time, she had selected both the ceremony and reception venues and had a general vision for the day. I was able to assist Nikki in pulling together the pieces that would bring that vision to life. We worked with her and her vendors to bring in elements that would give an elegant and romantic feel to the day.

Our main goal was that the day would be a strong representation of both she and Tyler’s tastes. This meant incorporating feminine, fun details while also keeping our design classic and traditional. One of my favorite parts of the design was the pop of “marsala” that she decided to incorporate into her floral in the final month. As we discussed the seasonality of her event, we realized that this beautiful hue would add depth to her design and would tie in some of the rich tones already present in Kansas City’s fall season.

Nikki devotes a lot of her time to her work and to her patients and because of this, did not have a lot of time to spend planning the wedding. It was so exciting for her to be able to arrive on site the day of the wedding without a worry and for her to enjoy each detail we had planned. I am so grateful for her trust in us to bring her dreams to life and wish the VanLoos all the best as they begin their marriage!

Tuscan-Inspired Summer Country Club Wedding

Designed around the idea of an al fresco Tuscan dinner party, these summer nuptials managed to bring that perfect sense of Italian charm to Kansas City. With vendors like Jessica SloaneSimple Elegance and Branches & Twigs behind-the-scenes, the result is casual elegance done right and the proof is in the pudding. More from Brumley & Wells in the gallery right here.

From Brumley and WellsWith the creative talent and vision of Jessica Sloane, Kyle and Joel’s wedding was perfectly executed with the class and style of a Tuscan-inspired wedding. The entire day was gorgeous, and the natural landscape that’s so abundant around Kansas City and the Country Club was a perfect accompaniment to the stylistic elements from the day. The day was most clearly defined, however, by the obvious and abundant love shared between Kyle and Joel and their wedding guests and friends. It was such an honor to be there and to witness their celebration.

Modern DIY Kansas City Wedding

There’s something about a modern wedding that pulls me in EVERY time. The clean lines, the crisp design and the effortless infusion of style everywhere you look. It pretty much sums up all the reasons I adore this Kansas City affair with DIYed details handcrafted by the bride and groom. Meagan (and) Nate + Village Video Productions captured the day and you can click right here for so much more.

From the Bride… When Shane and I met four years ago, we both knew we had found our perfect match in the other person. We were both family-oriented, creative, passionate and out-of-the-box thinkers. So when it came time to plan our wedding, it’s no surprise that all of those attributes poured into design of each aspect of our wedding day.

For our style, we always referenced the words ‘modern romance.’ We wanted to maintain the beautiful, classic elements of a traditional Jewish wedding, but also to keep things clean and simple where we could. Our venue truly spoke to that dichotomy. The ceremony location was a 1920s style cocktail lounge, with black walls, gold trimming and leather tufted couches. When guests stepped out to the cocktail hour and reception area, they entered a fresh, clean white space that let the décor speak for itself. No extras, no fluff. To us, throwing a great party is an essential part of any wedding, so we made sure to find a great band to help everyone dance through the night. Our caterer also did a great job in selecting foods that matched our eclectic taste and picky presentation style. (And – as a bonus – it was all kosher, to meet the needs of some of our guests!).

To cut down on costs without sacrificing quality, Shane and I chose to do a lot right out of our Chicago apartment. We designed all our invitations and stationery together, and the money saved allowed us to splurge a bit more on other aspects of the wedding. The design flexibility also allowed us to be extra picky, and incorporate design elements like a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired pattern, as an homage to Shane’s architecture background and our life together in Chicago (after being long distance for 3 years!). Our escort cards were tied to a pack of four different postcards that I designed, some of which had cute notes about Kansas – where we are both from. We wrote our table names on gold mirrors from IKEA, and each table represented a special place from our lives. Shane also made the guestbook by hand, which was a hardwood book in which guests could insert notes for us to read later. His parents devoted hours to making a gorgeous chuppah that embodied our modern romantic style, and a large black & gold sign for our J|S logo. For the reception, we had the chuppah moved to be above our table – which looked beautiful and saved on extra flowers for the sweetheart table!

In the end, Shane and I had a perfect wedding day that we truly designed from the ground-up.
