When planning their wedding Tracy says they wanted to think outside the box, and create an event that was whimsical and fun. I'd say they hit the mark spot on. Complete with a beautiful, modern event space, The Berg, in Kansas City, bright colors, and cake pops as far as the eye can see. The detail we love most? A costume change for the reception into some sleek black outfits. So unique! Thanks to Tracy and Aaron for sharing their day, and to Tracy Routh Photography for the lovely images.
From the bride, Tracy...
"Aaron and I first met at a homecoming party for a mutual friend. Two weeks after our first meeting, Aaron deployed overseas for about four months, but we still somehow managed to keep in touch and now we have been together for almost three years. When planning our wedding, we knew we did not want a “cookie cutter” wedding. We wanted the wedding to reflect our relationship and our personalities. Thus, we wanted a whimsical, fun wedding. I did have two family heirlooms with me: my mother’s garter and the earrings my sister wore at her wedding. It really meant a lot to me to have those items that reminded me of two of my favorite people in the world!
The day itself was a blur, but the ceremony really stood out. It was just lovely. My sister’s brother-in-law played a few beautiful songs on his acoustic guitar during the processional. My cousin read a Shakespearian sonnet and my sister and brother-in-law (also my Matron of Honor and Bridesman) sang “Oh darling”. But most importantly, it was the fact I finally married the love of my life! I will never forget how Aaron looked at me when he put the ring on my finger!
