From Heather of Hawes Photography… As an event planner for the Sporting Kansas City, Kansas City’s Major League Soccer team, Ashley spent her days picking out just the right details for each event. 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!).

A wedding at home. That is exactly what this beautiful bride and groom wanted – and just what they got. Coordinately Yours helped the couple transform the groom’s parents house – which the groom designed and built for them – into a romantic and elegant wedding. How great is it that every time they visit his parents house, they’re also visiting the place where they said “I do?” Love it. RPM Photography was on hand to capture every loving look and they’ve filled our gallery full with beautiful images from the day!
From Coordinately Yours … Bryce Gahagan, contestant on The Apprentice Season 5, wed Katie in June at the picturesque home he designed and built for his parents. Pre-ceremony refreshments, including the bride’s favorite, Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade, were served as guests entered the ceremony. The bride and groom exchanged “I do’s” at the lower level of the property lined with freshly planted impatiens and candlelit trees. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the groom’s daughter, and flower girl, ran and jumped on the groom in excitement.
During the first dance, the groom surprised his bride (and all of the guests) by adorning the bride’s finger with yet another ring. As the marriage certificate was being signed, the quartet along with the band played “The Devil Went Down in Georgia.” Candlelit vases and glass bulbs hung in trees lined the paths and the reception space. The pool was filled with hand blown glass bubbles, creating a beautiful reflection. A large chandelier hung over the dance floor providing romantic lighting that is now displayed in the dining room of the bride and groom’s home. A truly memorable piece!
A direction card to accompany the invitations was printed on bookcloth and adhered to card stock for texture and a hint of luxury. The bride and groom offered their custom blend of local Roasterie Coffee along with personalized donut pouches as favors.
