Seriously. Today’s real bride makes “ugly crying” beautiful – she is just that stunning. You know the one – the girl that makes everything work, when we ourselves feel the term “hot mess” was coined. Lucy is the 2018 “it” bride in her fashionable Vera Wang gown with her chic black + white tie wedding in Kansas City, MO. And when we say chic black + white, we mean the theme was nailed down through not just the décor, but to an uber fabulous stripped dance floor and Oreos served with chilled milk. Even the icing on the cake is reminiscent of white tie ruffles while guests toasted with puffs of white cotton candy garnishing their champagne flutes. Clearly, a shout out needs to be made to Events by Elle who made every detail come together with undeniable panache. While Good Earth Floral Design Studio made this wedding in Kansas City, MO literally bloom from the three-panel floral wall to the tabletops. But, its Melissa & Beth who bring all the feels to the forefront capturing not just the beauty, but the raw emotions that poured through this glamorously chic black + white tie wedding in Kansas City, MO.
