What a Night!

Hallbrook Country Club is one of my favorite clubs in Kanas City. (I love it so much it was the chosen venue for my own daughter’s wedding!)


It was such a pleasure to coordinate the first wedding of a family of only daughters as well.


The “pleasure” turned to high-anxiety as it rained every day the week of the wedding, it was predicted to rain on wedding day. The ceremony was on the patio….and there was no tent! Yikes!


To use the expression, “Phones blowing up,” would understate the 48 hours prior to 6:30 p.m. May 22!


However, the bonus of HBCC is that they had the perfect Plan B space inside if we needed it. Thanks to the patience of Tina Patel and her unending flexibility…the chairs we delayed being placed until just two hours before the ceremony. The skies lightened just as I started the the bridesmaids down the aisle and as the vows started…the sun was shining. Albeit, briefly…but shining!




We gave the black dresses a lot of “Wow” with fabulous arm bouquets of apple green, hot pink and tangerine flowers. Each maids’ bouquet was tied with ribbon of each of those colors and their earrings matched the ribbon. Likewise, the boutonnières of each groomsman matched the lady they escorted.




Fiddly Fig, once again, hit the ball out of the park with massive arrangements in gold urns that featured a cascading swag down the pedestal.



We did the tables in black sequins, gold flatware, place settings and stemware. It was glorious!





Landers’ Visions had a tech there to keep their up lighting perfectly in synch with the mood we wanted in the room for all phases of the evening. It was perfect! (What’s new?)


Mike Shortino, Entertainment to Go, kept the dance floor full all night long. (No surprise!)


We capped the night with one of the most organized sparkler exits I have ever coordinated. Again…thanks to Tina!


Nothing worth doing every comes easily…and this one certainly wasn’t but it was SO worth it! MJN
