Taryn and Sam got engaged in mid-2020, and planned their wedding for early 2022 in hopes to dodge the worst of the pandemic. After 18 months, we were so excited to finally get to celebrate this awesome couple!
March 12th was COLD this year. Really… really cold. But you wouldn’t know from these photos (other than the bits of snow on the ground) because this group had their game faces on, ready for celebration.
Throughout the planning process, Taryn had such a clear vision for their wedding flowers. She dreamed up muted pastel flowers as a nod to the transition from winter to spring, against elegant light taupe bridesmaid dresses. She envisioned mostly warm hues with pops of cool blue. (We’re suckers for a pop of blue!) We were immediately on board.
We selected beautiful toffee roses, paired next to lush ivory roses with the softest yellow center, dusty rose carnations, white anemone, white ranunculus, blush tulips, and the happiest flower on earth, chamomile. The chamomile really gave the bouquets a playful pop of yellow, and added some organic texture throughout. It was the perfect element to add a touch of whimsy to these romantic bouquets.
Taryn and Sam tied the knot at the Madrid Theatre in Kansas City. The facade is this really unique Spanish-style building in the middle of mid-town, which really stands out as you drive by. A stunning double staircase greets you as you walk in, and behind the staircases sits the spacious event space.
The couple got married on the stage of the theater, and the reception took place in the same location. The light dresses and florals really popped against the dark stage background, and the height differentiation was a unique layout for the celebration.
Afterward, guests moved upstairs to the balcony for a cocktail hour while the event space was transformed for the reception. Three types of centerpieces adorned the tables: A cluster of bud vases, a low garden-style centerpiece, and tall larger arrangements. This variation gave the tables some visual interest as you looked around the room.
We had such a blast planning with Taryn, and loved her muted pastel color palette vision for their big day.
