Dreamy Downtown kansas City Wedding Day

October 13th, 2023


More about this day :

Athena and Grant had a beautiful October Wedding day at 28 Event Space, a Wedding Venue in Downtown Kansas City! Their day was full of so many beautiful, joyful moments and wonderful vendors! The entire team who made this day happen will be listed at the bottom if you're looking for some incredible Kansas City wedding florists, planners, or venues! 

The day began a a sweet Airbnb in Pendleton Heights, a neighborhood just a few minutes away from downtown where Athena and her girls got ready! After some fun photos of Athena in her wedding day jammies we headed out to 28 Event Space to grab some detail photos and finish getting ready!

Athena and Grant wanted to take time to include their favorite people in some special moments with first looks! Alisha with ThirtyOne: Thirty Event Planning was an essential part in helping keep everyone in their places and organized for the first looks! Reading their personal vow with just their closest friends and family was a really touching and emotional moment for the couple as well. This is a WONDERFUL idea for couples who want to share this moment with just a handful of people! Especially if you may be feeling uncomftanle sharing with your entire guest list!

We headed to Liberty Memorial nearby for some fun wedding party portraits! The couple spent a few moments alone as well for their own portraits! For their ceremony Athena had her younger brother officiate and marry them! This is a great personal touch for couples looking to add sweet personal aspect to their day! It's relatively simple for a close friend or family member to get ordained online!

Athena and Grant started their party with playing Flip Cup following their entrance! (The ladies did win)  Twice on Sunday, and Incredible local band was the entertainment for the evening! The crowd loved them as you can tell by all the photos from the reception! Little did Grant know, Athena had arranged something really special for him. Context for this is that he is that they are huge Kansas City Chief fans!
