Today we’re bringing you Morgan and Nick’s beautiful downtown Kansas City wedding. Their wedding last May has lots of gorgeous photographs you’ll really enjoy. Some of the couple’s details include brilliant springtime flowers in purple, pink, and white; modern typography; amazing lighting above their reception tables; peony bouquets; vintage china; and more. Their wedding ceremony programs were both modern and bold. They also had personalized wedding koozies with their date and initials. Very cool! These always make for a great favor because they keep your guests drinks cold (especially helpful during hot summer months). Other fun details include Nick’s Oklahoma State dress socks and pet photo booth props. Now it’s time to see all the amazing photographs captured by Darbi G. Photography

Hi, loves! One of the best bridesmaid gifts you can give is a personalized one, since it is made just for her. One of the easiest (and most functional) gifts you can give are initial necklaces for bridesmaids. There are dozens of beautiful designs out there, but lately we’ve been swooning over the collection at Palomaria because they’re so insanely unique. These necklaces are handmade, customized with each bridesmaid’s initial, and are even created in any color palette you choose. This means you can coordinate the necklaces with the season in which you’re tying the knot, her favorite colors, or your wedding color palette. To show you just how lovely they are, I’ve gathered up a few of my personal favorites from the shop. Which one do you like best? I’m really digging the style above, as well as the purple flower necklaces you’ll see later in this post. Read on to see them all!
