Kenzi and Jeff were married on a beautiful white beach but had their reception here, local in Kansas City at a newer venue called Dark Horse Distillery. Green and whites with gold accents over flowed the tables. The signature head table was created with a floor length garland drape of green and white hydrangeas. While the tall table arrangements were filled with hydrangeas, honeysuckle, spiraea and queen annes lace. Little gold ginger jars of David Austin roses and gold mercury mint juleps with green hydrangeas filled the tables. Photos by Todd Davidson Photo. Congratulations Kenzi and Jeff. Thank you for letting us be apart of your day.

Her bridesmaids bouquets were filled in greens to complement their eggplant dresses.

Recently we were contacted by some of our friends and collages to help be apart of this cause to fight human trafficking. Knowing about the epidemic of human trafficking and the horrible evil happening to women and children across the globe, without hesitation we jumped on board with them.Feeling paralyzed by the weight of such a global crisis and thinking what could we do in the face of something so terrible and so far reaching? The founder Mindy Greaves, of the Fight for Them Campaign, saw the effects of human trafficking first hand while living overseas and was moved to act.
She says, “I can’t do everything, but I must do something.”
Mindy founded Fight for Them which makes beautiful handcrafted jewelry. Every piece of jewelry has one “pearl of hope” as well as the initials of a victim that has been rescued out of trafficking. When jewelry is purchased, 100% of the profits go directly to three organizations working in Southeast Asia to rescue, counsel, and rehabilitate girls from the sex trade: IHH International, She Rescue Home, and Zoe.
Fight for Them even has bracelets and necklaces sized for little girls. These would make great gifts and daily reminders of those who are living lives of hope and freedom after such bondage.

Ashlea’s and Cliffs wedding was held at the beautiful Longview Mansion. Her colors were lavender and blush and every detail was accounted for. She wanted something different and unique. So her bridesmaids carried beautiful pearl strung pomanders filled with lavender roses. Her bouquet was filled to the rim with gorgeous gardens roses in ivories and blush roses. The grooms and groomsmen wore bouts with leaves rolled in cone shape and overflowing with moss wire and berries. The alter was custom built in large urns with willow to create a floating cascade of flowers that draped around them in front of a looking glass pond. In the reception tables were filled with manzanita trees in stone pots with hanging votives and flowers. Photos were by. Lark Photos and Videography by. Alea Lovely.
