Happy Father’s to the two best dads in my world. I am so grateful for two men who have provided the best life for me and who adore Micheal and Kennedy. Josh, watching you become a father to both Micheal and Kennedy will forever be the greatest days of my life. I love how much Micheal wants to be just like you in all that he does and that Kennedy lights up when you walk in the room. Dad, having you as my dad has been such a gift. Watching you become a proud Papa has been an even bigger gift. We are forever chasing monkey birds because of you.
Straight out of a fairytale, Kristina and Josh became man and wife yesterday. ⠀ I had the honor of planning Kristina’s sisters wedding last year and was invited back into the family to plan Kristina’s wedding. I could tell you all about the family style Italian spread from @garozzosristorante and jaw dropping floral installation from @bellachicfloral, but what stands out to me is this incredible family. ⠀ I often say that Nellie Sparkman Events couples and families are beyond “clients,” but most become like family. This family shared in my joy of welcoming another baby to our family and gave Kennedy snuggles during design appointments with @ultrapom and @bellachicfloral. Kristina, Sarah and their mother have a special relationship with their mother, one that I hope to build with my own daughter. They also have a sweet spot for their dad, and it is evident that these girls have their dad’s heart. ⠀ The kindness and love this family has shown me made it my honor to spend the past few years working alongside them on two of the most special days in their children’s lives.
Cheers to the weekend and celebrating another Nellie Sparkman Event’s couple becoming husband and wife! Kansas City has so many fun things this weekend- Boulevardia, Monster Jam, Wizard of Oz at Starlight... what are your weekend plans?? ⠀ Cocktails @cordialcraftkc Photo @lovetreestudios
