Today’s gorgeously romantic white and blue wedding ideas showcase just how amazing a wedding can be when you incorporate a theme. Inspired by Kansas City’s champion baseball team, the Kansas City Royals, the area’s best wedding professionals teamed up to create a wedding design using elements representing the town of Kansas City and the team so many cherish. And with a vision executed by Events by Nellie, stationery by Lauren Heim Studio, and photography by Laura Foote… you really can’t go wrong. Laura explains the design and details perfectly, so we’ll let her take it from here!
“Kansas City is home to sunflower fields that skirt its metropolitan center, the most BBQ restaurants of any city in America, over 200 fountains, rivaling cities like Paris and Rome, and most recently, the 2015 Baseball World Champion. When the Kansas City Royals took home the crown, the city was a sea of blue and white. The entire season, in fact, connected mid-westerners across the country in cheering on the “boys in blue” and celebrating a piece of “home”. As a non-sports enthusiast Kansan who now lives in Florida, I did not expect to care much about my hometown team’s performance during this season. But the images flooding social media from around the country loving Kansas City, it’s people, and it’s team, absolutely won over my heart.
This moment in time inspired “Forever Royal”, a Kansas City Vendor collaboration to create the most gorgeous of wedding days using elements that represent the town we know & love and the baseball team that has created memories for so many. Using the leading vision of Nellie of Events by Nellie, the day was curated with amazingly thoughtful detail. From the the “You are my home” theme hand lettered throughout the signs and stationary by Lauren Heim to represent the home plate of the game as well as the heart of our couple in starting their life together to the “Made in KC” gift bags, filled with “Forever Royal” coasters, a cold Boulevard beer (brewed local in Kansas City), and ever-popular Charlie Hustle “I heart KC” tank, Kansas and The Royals were woven together without any need for “take me out to the ballgame” playing.
Add in a real-life couple and their best friends as our bride, groom, bridesmaid, groomsman,the most gorgeous, rustic country club boat dock on all together cloudy and cool spring day, a perfectly gold foiled cake by Adorn Cakes and you have this stunningly gorgeous yet truly “at home” soiree. Our hope is to inspire industry professionals and couples to think beautifully about how to incorporate hometowns and their recent “noteworthy” celebrations into a wedding day by using texture, color, and local elements to tell the story!”
