Annie and Jacob’s classic Kansas City wedding was full of heartfelt emotional moments, spiritual devotion, and tons of family involvement. Their raw venue, The Wedding Place, allowed this sweet couple to customize their ceremony from beginning to end, featuring their closest family and friends. The bride was walked down the aisle by both her parents, the groom’s sister sang the processional and both of their parents prayed over the young couple. Simple DIY’d décor, including lace embroidery hoops, a stunning chandelier hanging from the tree branches, and a ribbon reception canopy, enhanced the outdoor venue beautifully. Bright and sunny florals designed by Bethany’s Bouquets, featuring pops of yellow ranunculus, tiny daisies, white roses and cool-toned greenery, from bridal bouquet to adorable flower crowns for the bridal party. Surveyor Creative and captured the most tender and pure moments of the overjoyed couple during a relaxed portrait session after the touching ceremony.

The Wedding Place, Kansas City, Missouri
We wanted to bless our guests and family. That was one of our main priorities through the whole process.
I made the lace embroidery hoops we hung. I got lace fabric and placed it in the embroidery hoop andcut the extra off. Very easy, and very beautiful for both outdoor and indoor venue.
Jacob and I personalized our ceremony by having the people we loved be a part of it, including Jesus. Annie‘s dad performed the ceremony. One of our best friends lead worship. Jacob‘s sister sang the processional song. Our parents prayed over us. Annie‘s parents both walked her down because she wanted to honor both of them. We wrote our own vows to one another.
We felt so much love from our closest and dearest friends, and we both felt so blessed and loved from the Lord. We had worship during the ceremony, our parents prayed over us, and we took communion together. This was so powerful for us as we were making such a beautiful, lifelong commitment to each other.
Our photographer was a joy to work with andhonestly made the day run more smooth. We felt so confident and relaxed around our photographers, and never felt that they were running the show. They simply captured the beautiful moments going on. The family photos were stress free and quick which was awesome. Our photographer even prayed over us, which meant a whole lot to us.
