I used CaraSue Hall for Makeup and she was wonderful!  I also used All Ears Mobile DJ if you’re looking for a DJ.  He was fantastic!

I live in NYC, haven’t lived in KC for 12 years, and am getting married there in Sept., so I feel your pain!  I chose CaraSue Hall for hair/makeup (trial is in Dec.), Jeff Holmes for DJ, Baber’s catering for catering,Epagafoto fo photographer.  Oh – and we’re getting married at Club 1000 downtown – we wanted a more “urban” feel for our wedding and it’s a penthouse loft space.  We’re checking with Hy-vee for flowers, but i’ve heard good things about Costco and Bella Flora.  The Kansas City knot board has been very helpful for suggestions too!

I’m sorry that EpagaFoto is booked, Jessica Roark is my photographer and she is AMAZING. If you like her style check out Heather Cole, she’s got a similar style and was my #2 choice.

Florist is HANDS DOWN Erin Volante Floral. Not. Even. Kidding. Out of my 5 best friends who are married they have ALL used her and that is who I’m going with. She is very down to earth, unbelievably talented and will work with any budget. My fiance was laid off a few months ago, we had to cut back our floral budget and has never once made me feel bad for cutting the floral budget.

Anything else you’re still curious about? There isn’t much going on in the KC board so it’s kind of exciting to have someone ask about it! 😉

Oh that’s too bad Erin was booked. You might ask her in an email if there is anyone she would reccommend, she knows a ton of vendors. Also I’m not a huge Knot.com person but they have a lot of venues on the website. I’m not getting married in that area so I’m less aware of the venues.

If Heather Cole isn’t available, another option is KaeRae Photography, you might find her on her facebook page, or google her. She’s got a similar style, she’s a little newer but still VERY talented.

What kind of venue are you thinking? More modern? Traditional? Both ceremony/reception location? I’ll ask around some!

Yay, hello KC brides! I wish the KC board was more alive. 🙂 We are using Jessica Peterson for our photography. I LOVE HER work! Here is her website: http://www.jessicapetersonphoto.net She did our engagement shoot (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE) and we are meeting with her tomorrow to talk about wedding coverage pricing! She is very easy going and captures those intimate, unplanned moments!

@dreamrocker13 – A friend of mine is having her reception at Black on Burlington in KC. It is a brand new event space that allows catering. Here is the website: http://blackonburlington.com/default.aspx

Hope that helps!
