Talk about glamorous! With a sparkly gold palette, stunningly lush florals and a CB Couture dress that may have stolen the show, we can't help but love this wedding. Kansas natives Allie Fiss (25 and a real estate agent and Denver Broncos cheerleader) and Liam Kirby (27 and works in operations and project management for Uber) knew they wanted to get married in their home state, and enlisted the help of Celebrations of Love to bring their vision to life. The day started at the modern Cure of Ars Catholic Church in Leawood, Kansas, before the newlyweds headed to Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri, for an upbeat, old Hollywood-style reception. One of our favorite details was Allie's stunning CB Couture ball gown with an illusion neckline, detailed beading on the bodice and a full skirt. In fact, there are so many details we love about this glam fete. See them all, beautifully captured by Jana Marie Photos, below. A tip from Allie about wedding planning: “Make at least one day of every week the day you don't talk about the wedding to anyone—not friends, not family, not strangers, not anyone.”

Flowers were important to Allie on her wedding day because she adores flowers. Botanica KC totally got her vision and created a lush, textured bouquet including pink peonies, peach ranunculus, ivory roses, white veronica, blush astilbes and lots of greenery.
The bridesmaids carried hydrangeas, veronica, roses, lisianthus and peonies in their all-white bouquets. With their super-sparkly gold dresses, Allie and Liam didn’t want  the flowers to compete for attention. Plus, Allie loved how the neutral bouquets matched her look.
Simple White Ranunculus Groom's Boutonniere
Allie and Liam got married in Kansas, where they were born and raised. Cure of Ars Catholic Church in Leawood, Kansas, was perfect for their vows. Allie grew up in the church, which was super-modern with stained glass in the rounded ceiling.
CB Couture Illusion Neckline Wedding Dress
The bridesmaids chose their own dresses for the glam wedding. Allie’s only requests were that the dresses were long, gold and sparkly. “With a very traditional ceremony and old Hollywood-themed reception feel, I knew these colors would work for two very different venues,” she says.
Sparkly Gold Rock Candy-Filled Champagne Drinks
Allie and Liam went to their first concert together to see Deadmau5 at Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. They loved that the venue had a little history in their relationship. Plus the amazing space was perfect for a glam, upbeat wedding reception.
Allie and Liam had a huge popcorn bar with 10 flavors of popcorn. It was a great end-of-the-night snack for everyone. And the gold takeout boxes even matched the palette.
For dessert, Allie and Liam enjoyed a five-tier white buttercream wedding cake. Each layer was decorated with gold detailing at the bottom to match the glam palette. White peonies, white hydrangeas and blush roses added plenty of romance to the confection.
