The Bardot Wedding: Kimber & Michael spent the morning apart getting ready with their respective wedding parties. The bride got ready at her parent’s home, which is a decision I always find to be so heartwarmingly personal.
After their first look, Kimber & Michael captured portraits with their crew outside of her parents’ house. I love that Kimber and her family will always have such once-in-a-lifetime moments tied with their family home.
The bridesmaids each got to pick their own dresses for the day, and their eclectic ensembles came together beautifully. For their getting ready attire, Kimber even hand embroidered custom hoodies for each of her bridesmaids!
Kimber’s brother Miles also served as a member of her side of the wedding party. He and Michael’s brother were the couple’s best men and stood by their sides at the altar.
The couple opted for an intimate wedding ceremony that included only their closest family and dearest friends. All along the way, Kimber & Michael dreamed up special touches to make their guests feel extra welcome.
A three-piece band greeted guests and guided them to the backyard. There they were met with the most vibrant, custom fans to keep them cool on a warm summer day. And if that didn’t work, their ice cold drinks from the wet bar did!
After the ceremony, the group traveled to the Nelson-Atkins Museum for additional portraits before making their way to their reception at The Bardot. The rest of their wedding guests welcomed them to the party of the summer!
Kimber’s colorful vision for her day transformed The Bardot into its own garden party celebration. After a delicious dinner, Lost Wax band kept the dance floor packed (even though it was a hot night in Kansas City)! And the party didn’t stop there.
After the reception, Kimber & Michael invited their guests downstairs into The Bardot’s speakeasy basement for a disco-themed after party.
