Our friends are married and the wedding was wonderful!
The ceremony and reception took place at a country club just outside of Kansas City. The bride had always wanted to be married outside, and the weather was just perfect for it. The ceremony took place at 5:30pm, so it had just started to cool off and not a rain cloud in sight.
It really was a beautiful setting for a wedding. Here we are with the ceremony site in the background.
After the ceremony, the bride and groom drove off into the distance in a golf cart with a just married sign off the back. The guests filed inside for cocktail hour. Zac and I sat at table four and as someone who enjoys wine, I loved the table numbering system.
The table runners were a really great idea to involve the families. They were a collage of wedding photos from the parents and grandparents of the bride and groom. There may have been a great grandparent photo in there as well.
We ate a buffet dinner of spinach salad, potato salad, mac and cheese, and beef brisket. The wedding cake was red velvet which is one of my favorites. The cake had both sunflowers and wine grapes as decoration. The bride and groom danced to “Take Me The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson.
We danced the rest of the night away to a great mix of country, oldies but goodies and current hits. The reception wrapped up around 11:30 pm and we headed back to the hotel and crashed. Our flight back to DC was bright and early this morning at 7:35 am.
After attending this wedding, I am glad we chose to have our reception at a country club. More on how we chose in another post!
