Wedding Wednesday: Kansas City

This past weekend M and I had to go out to Kansas City for wedding duties. We had a dessert tasting with our caterer, a mock set-up with our decorator, and we finally got the see the [almost] finished wedding venue in all it's glory!

We left Saturday morning and made our way to the tasting. We tried cheesecake, cake/truffle bites, chocolate mouse cups, carrot cake cupcakes, and apple crisp! So tasty! We are doing a small wedding cake, but since we aren't big cake eaters, we wanted to have plenty of options as well! We are SO happy with the choices we made.

After our tasting we made our way down to the Kansas City Market. We got to check out tons of tasty produce, spices, and fresh flowers.

After the market, we wandered around the FOUR STORY antique shop nearby, which took a few hours. It was our dream come true.

We needed a break after this, so we stopped for some drinks and listened to some live music.

Once we were finished downtown, we headed out to Kansas City's best BBQ at Oklahoma Joe's. We waited just about an hour before ordering (it's in a gas station) but it was SO WORTH IT. M said he has had better brisket, but I disagreed.

After this we were so full and exhausted we just went back to our hotel room to rest, and ended up spending the rest of the night in. I took a bath and then we relaxed some more, it was fabulous.

We had a slow start Sunday, but then met with our AMAZING decorator from Vintage Rentals Kansas City to do some mock centerpiece trials. It was so much fun browsing all of her great stuff! This husband and wife team has been such a blessing to us! Here's a little peak:

After we were finished with this, we headed down to the art district for a snack and it started POURING on us. Tornadoes were in the forecast and I was really hoping this wouldn't put a damper on the venue reveal. Thankfully it didn't and once we made it to the venue it was incredibly clear outside! The venue was so much more then I ever imagined. Everything about it is PERFECT. I am so happy with our decision to have our wedding here.

It was such a fun, event-filled weekend. I can't wait to get married in LESS THAN 2 MONTHS!
