We have been looking forward to Leslie and Cassidy’s wedding ever since we spent a day exploring Kansas City, MO with them during their engagement session at the beginning of the year. During their destination engagement session, we visited some meaningful spots such as Rockhurst University, where they both attended. We also found some new favorites and we all connected over a couple rounds of beers. It’s safe to say that we made two new friends on that trip!
Leslie and Cassidy got ready at Ludwig Lofts downtown, just a few floors separating them. Both groups of bridal parties were sporting Arch Apparel, sharing mimosas, and listening to early 2000s pop + hiphop. They had their First Look outside of the lofts, holding hands back to back giggling with excitement and being watched by their group from the party bus parked across the street. It was a seriously beautiful moment when they both turned to see each other in their dresses for the first time, despite being downtown with cars passing.
Leslie and Cassidy were married at Jewel Box, an iconic greenhouse venue located in the heart of Forest Park. Leslie’s sister did a wonderful job as officiant and told meaningful stories of how their relationship blossomed and has grown. After the ceremony, we took wedding party and creative photos and video around the park, including The Muny, before escaping for some fun with their friends at one of their favorite breweries, Four Hands.
After guests filled up on tacos from Mission Taco Joint (seriously one of the best wedding dinners we have had!), they filled the dance floor and the celebration continued well past the last call. We are so thrilled that these two wonderful people are married and wish them so much happiness and love!!!
