Royal Wedding KC Style…

Royal Wedding KC Style…

December 13, 2014 or 12-13-14 “A date not easily forgotten!”  On that special Saturday night, at half past five, the Missouri Bank and Trust in downtown Kansas City, MO hosted the marriage ceremony uniting Carolyn Anne Gray and Jeffrey Daniel Huggins.  Millie’s Event Designs was on site as the wedding coordinator for the special occasion.

After an exchange of vows and a giving of the rings, the Honorable Beth Philips presented to family and guests the newly minted husband and wife; Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Huggins.  Immediately following the ceremony the guests were treated to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres prepared by Blue Pot Catering; thebluepot.com.  While the wedding party was taking pictures at Crown Center, the family and guests were transported a short distance to the formal reception held at The Little Theatre inside Kansas City’s Art Deco Municipal Auditorium complex.

The bride and groom along with the wedding party then made their grand entrance into The Little Theatre; www.kcconvention.com where they were introduced by the band “The Karen Davis Project.” Carolyn and Jeff then cut their cake www.sistersbaking.com and toasted to their blessed day.  It was then time for the speeches by Carolyn’s father Tom, Jeff’s brother Justin and Carolyn’s sisters Katy and Lauren.

The couple moved next to the dance floor where they danced to Frankie Valli’s – “Can’t take my Eyes off of You”.  Next, Carolyn brought her father to the floor where they danced to “Have I told you Lately”.  It was then time for the groom to dance with his mother Maggie to Gaelic Storm’s – ” Kiss me I’m Irish”.   The Karen Davis Project; www.karendavisproject.com then opened the floor for all guests playing “We are Family”!

At precisely 9:10pm, the guests were treated to a special surprise gift by the bride to her new husband, a die hard Kansas City Royals fan.  The groom was in awe and shock as the Royals’ mascot “Slugger” came running onto the dance floor as the band played “Take me out to the Ballgame!”  The night then shifted into high celebration as the guests donned glow-in-the-dark glasses and used lightsabers to cut loose.
