Soft and Romantic Kansas City Wedding | The Venue in Leawood

NSE Wedding, Real Weddings

Lesley and Ryan’s wedding was filled with personal touches from taking photos at Ryan’s Fire Station to their stunning garden inspired blush and gold reception at The Venue in Leawood in Kansas City.

We had the opportunity to help Lesley and Ryan celebrate their wedding day this weekend and it was nothing short of amazing.  I have known this NSE Bride, Lesley, since our grade school days, so this weekend was even more special!

Doesn’t she look AMAZING in her custom Emily Hart gown?  Lesley and Ryan shared their “I Do’s” at Church of the Ascension in Overland Park, KS and it was truly one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have witnessed.  The music was absolutely spectacular, which included a gorgeous solo of one of my favorite songs, “The Prayer.”

Guests arrived for cocktail hour at The Venue in Leawood prior to getting the party started!

When beginning the planning process with our couple, the Bride shared how much she loved quotes.  We loved how many quotes she incorporated throughout the wedding day.  One of our favorites, which her father, Michael, mentioned in his toast was “We are all just walking each other home”.
