An Elegant, Classic Wedding at Cellar 222 in Kansas City, Missouri
Kaleigh Thomas (26 and a special education teacher) and Jeff Thomas (31 and a contract analyst) pulled off a classic summer affair with a textured, organic blooms and a color palette of soft white, cream and ivory hues. “Jeff and I are both very simple people and wanted to make sure that we were true to who are,” says Kaleigh. The day began with an intimate ceremony at Pilgrim Chapel in Kansas City, Mo., where the couple exchanged vows surrounded by their closest family members and friends. “We chose not to decorate the space at all,” says Kaleigh. “The chapel was so beautiful on it’s own and we did not want to takeaway from its beauty with added decor.”
The newlyweds and their guests then headed to Cellar 222, an intimate venue in downtown Kansas City, for the reception. Arrangements of Queen Anne’s lace, roses, scabiosas, seeded eucalyptus, maidenhair ferns, smilax and jasmine vine gathered into untamed, romantic bundles topped the tables, while clusters of hanging glass orbs holding brightly lit candles emitted a warm, ambient glow of the room's exposed brick walls. Playful touches like favor bags filled with monogrammed M&Ms, a baseball diamond groom’s cake — a nod to Jeff’s love of the Kansas City Royals — a table brimming with fun activities for the couple’s younger guests added a dash of personality and playfulness to the day.
