Kansas City Wedding Film from Creative Video/Creative Films

It’s a Style Me Pretty Saturday, and you know what that means for us LBBers – a viewing of a phenomenal wedding film. This one comes to us from Creative Video/Creative Films straight from Kansas City and we are loving the highlights from both the Chinese Tea Ceremony and the super gorgeous Western wedding as well. We know you will love it!

Growing up I never would have envisioned my wedding to be this beautiful and this meaningful… I pictured just a small Chinese Tea Ceremony with a gathering of my close friends and families. However, that wasn’t so. So many of our friends and families traveled from so far just to share this special moment with us.

Family and tradition was the inspiration for our wedding day. My father-in-law gave me family gold heirloom, we served tea during our tea ceremony out of respect for all our elders in our family, and they shared words of wisdom and encouragement in return. We gave red envelopes with money to the children for luck and the red blanket on our bed symbolized the start of our new family. The colors red and yellow, during our tea ceremony represent happiness and luck.

A lot of our decor for our tea ceremony was brought from Mylasia by my father-in-law. Jeremy and I spent many weeks and months creating our own table numbers, programs, and invitations. My florist made my bouquet very special for me. It had a picture of my dad and I when I was little. Although my father is no longer with us, I knew his spirit was with us at all times. When I saw my flowers I was in tears. They were so beautiful, and had so much meaning to me. A special poem that I found for my father was read at our western ceremony.

I am excited and emotional every time I watch my video. I can’t thank Creative Video/Creative Films enough for giving me this opportunity to share this piece with my future daughter when she grows up. A picture can speak a thousand words but a video…it’s PRICELESS.

She brought the same attention to detail to her wedding day, opting for a classic, understated color palette and details that spoke to her fiance’s love of all things flying (like their save-the-date paper airplanes!).

Kansas City Wedding Redo by Alea Lovely Photo + Video

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.
