A Classic Blush and Ivory Wedding at Elms Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri

Kylie LeWallen (27 and a student) and Travis Bangert (34 and a chiropractor and business owner) met through mutual friends. Travis proposed at sunset on a sail boat cruise on the Gulf of Mexico. For their wedding, the couple chose Elms Hotel for its indoor and outdoor options for both the ceremony and reception, and because no one would have to drive afterwards. They exchanged vows in the giant gazebo for their ceremony and decorated with crystal beading behind the alter and large floral arrangements by Eco Posh Events on either side. Wanting a soft, romantic wedding, the couple used blush, ivory and gray for their color palette and added gold accents throughout for some glamorous flair.

Kylie wore an ivory organza ruffled Lazaro ball gown with a sweetheart neckline and lace bodice.
The bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm floor-length blush chiffon dresses for a soft, classic look.
The bride carried blush and ivory garden roses and peonies and the bridesmaids carried blush roses with white hydrangeas in their bouquets.
The groom and groomsmen wore blush roses with silver brunia balls and lamb’s ear for their boutonnieres.
Kylie and Travis wrote the wedding party’s names onto a rustic chalkboard at the ceremony entrance.
