Happy six months of marriage to these two beautiful lovebirds!
Karoline and I instantly connected when we first met for their consultation. From there we just kept having a great time at their engagement session and an even better time at their wedding. They had a winter wedding in December and we actually lucked out with pretty decent weather for it. They got married at the Thompson Barn in Lenexa, Kansas. It was such a great venue with so many indoor and outdoor options for pictures. After their ceremony, we went to Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park for a few more bridal party pictures and some fun on the party bus. The bridal party that these two had was just a blast. Hear from Karoline about some of her favorite parts of their big day:
What was the most memorable experience from your big day? Literally everything! Having all of our friends and family under one roof to celebrate us was the best part. It's truly very eye opening and heartwarming how many people care about us.
What is your most valuable piece of advice you can share with future couples planning their wedding? Do what you want to do for your wedding. Don't choose something because you think other people want something or are expecting something. Have the type of food you want, play the music you like, have your dog be in the wedding . My wedding was a reflection of my favorite things--my dog, country music, Christmas music, Mexican food, etc.
Share how (or why) you chose your wedding venue(s). I have always wanted a barn venue and we ended up looking at a few throughout the Kansas City area. Since our wedding was in December, we had to make sure there was enough room for everyone inside for the ceremony and reception. My mom actually told me about Thompson Barn since she lives in Lenexa and I fell in love with it when I went to tour it for the first time.
What was your favorite part of the planning process? My favorite part of the planning process was working with my vendors. They truly made planning so easy and fun! If I could do it all over again, I would still pick them. I am so thankful for each and every one! (thanks Karoline!)
