The Reeds: A Romantic and Joyful Urban Wedding at The Everly in Kansas City

A classic and romantic urban wedding story set between the bustling streets of the Crossroads district of downtown Kansas City. Alan and Tara celebrated their love for one another on a warm and overcast Friday in July with their friends, families, and of course their ring-bearing-pup Winston!

As Alan and Tara's wedding photographer, my greatest memories from their downtown wedding day were just the amount of laughter and genuine joy we all shared during the entire day. These two absolutely exude joy and I think their wedding photos 100% represent that! From the couple's sweet and emotional vow reading and first look to fun moments with each of their wedding party members, a romantic and joyous ceremony, to a huge group champagne pop at a nearby Kansas City mural, this wedding day blog showcases smiles and love.

Not only do Alan and Tara make me feel all happy, warm, and fuzzy when looking through their wedding photos, but I'm also reminded of how their minimal and elegant details were styled. With a sophisticated color pallet of navy and white with pops of gold and touches of greenery The Everly Event Space never looked so romantic and elegant. Candlelight and string lights warmed the industrial and urban space transforming it into the perfect wedding downtown venue. If you're ready to be inspired and of course, smile, this elegant and minimal downtown Kansas City wedding day is a must-see!
