What a wedding to kick off this year with–sorry I’m so delayed in posting these. I adored the vendors AND the couple (Michelle & Colt)… the reception venue was phenom (Shawnee Mission Theatre in Shawnee, KS) and the planner was top-notch (Christine Darden? of @Celebrations of Love). FYI::::: Christine is a planner who is hands on and there for you. She helps with things that truly separate her from other planners. And she’s FUN! YOU NEED HER! lol
Now on to the couple. The stunning, fun, silly and sweet couple. This is the couple whom I poached, lol. I met Michelle & her mom at the bridal fair, and we talked for awhile. I fell in love with them…and I knew they were meant to be mine (MuAHHAHAHA) lol And sure enough! DING!
Anyway, so on to love:::::
Michelle said she knew Colt was THE one because: “I can’t imagine living my life without him. He makes me laugh everyday and I love who he is; his values, virtues and principles is something rare and amazing that I value. He’s my person and I want to support his dreams and goals.”
Colt professes about Michelle’s beauty when asked why he is head over heels in love with her. He also loves that “She wants very simple but meaningful things, such as a hug, a kiss or just being in the same room can make the difference in her day. She just wants to see the people she cares about. I can remember several rough days she has had and all she needed to feel better was some time with me and maybe her dog. She thinks my ridiculousness is funny at times also.”
Bottom line: they are keepers for one another. HANDS DOWN.
And their wedding…lovely to the core. From the lighting to the colors to the venue to the florals (by Shelley Rundberg Couture Wedding Flowers). SCRUMPTIOUS!
