A Glamorous, Classic Gold Wedding at Hilton President Kansas City in Kansas City, Missouri

Loving the gold and blush ballroom at the Hilton President Kansas City in Kansas City, Missouri, Christine Kim (25 and a pharmacist) and Keith Richardson (26 and an engineer) had a gorgeous, glamorous blush, gold and ivory wedding. The swoon-worthy gold crown molding and ornate chandeliers not only sealed the deal for the couple, but inspired the entire wedding. The couple had a traditional religious ceremony at the Prairie Baptist Church in Prairie Village, Kansas, which didn’t disappoint. “It has the most amazing windows throughout the sanctuary,” Christine says. “Right before the wedding ceremony began, to the sound of ‘Ode to Joy’ on the harp, the windows simultaneously opened to allow a flood of glorious light into the room.” Afterwards, they had an ornate reception full of tall ivory and gold centerpieces decorated with hanging beads by Floral Accents and an ivory and gold cake from Take the Cake. But, with all the ornate gold and fancy chandeliers, they wanted to add something that was still very them. So, they made all the table numbers with photos and memories of places at Kansas University (where they met!). They also added a fun hashtag, #KCTiesTheKnot, because of their initials (Keith and Christine) as well as Kansas City. Instead of traditional wedding favors, Christine and Keith made a donation to the National Breast Cancer foundation in honor of Christine’s mother’s 15th year as a breast cancer survivor. But, one of the best parts was the romantic first dance. “When Keith and I talk about our wedding day we agree that one of our favorite parts of the night was our first dance,” Christine says. “It was to Ellie Goulding's ‘How Long Will I Love You’ and such an amazing time to connect together as husband and wife.”
