Everyone has asked themselves at one time or another, where has time gone? For Makensie Davis and Curt McDonald, their time was on display this past weekend. Makensie and Curt first met when they were sophomores in high school. Fast forward ten years and this past Saturday, on September 19, 2015 the two were joined in Holy Matrimony. The ceremony was performed before God, family and friends at St. John’s Methodist Church in Kansas City, Missouri by Reverend James Hoffman. Millie’s Event Designs as wedding planner and day of coordinator was there every step of the way to ensure that everyone had the time of their lives!
At the conclusion of the short but elegant ceremony, the couple and family posed for pictures before the newlyweds and their groomsmen, maids of honor and ushers boarded a bus to take pictures at other Kansas City landmarks on this beautifully perfect Saturday evening. Meanwhile, the guests travelled over to the historic Hobbs building in Kansas City’s famous West Bottoms area to a reception at the “Feast of Fancy”; www.feastsoffancy.com. Once there, the guests were treated to a sunset courtyard cocktail reception and delicious passed appetizers. As the seven o’clock hour approached, the guests began to find their assigned seats for the main reception. Each of the 25 tables was identified by timely pictures of the bride and groom as they aged from their first birthday, through their first date at age 16, the high school prom, college and their engagement. As the clock chimed seven, the Michael Beers Band; www.michaelbeers.com began to introduce groups of the wedding party who danced their way in to specifically chosen songs for the occasion. The Band then announced Mr. and Mrs. Curt McDonald to a standing ovation. The couple made their way to the center dance floor where they cut their traditional wedding cake and toasted to their new life as husband and wife. The bride’s father, George Davis then gave the blessing and invited the guests to enjoy the evening’s fare of fine food and drinks.
The buffet style dinner consisted of home-style mac and cheese, a three cheese and garganelli pasta topped with herbed bread crumbs. There was also seasonal roasted vegetable platter of green beans, cauliflower and roasted red peppers. Other delicious dishes included imported Italian pasta tossed with basil pesto, tomatoes, and mozzarella as well as whipped garlic potatoes with herbs & rosemary. The main course was chicken roasted whole then cut into portions or beef short ribs in a natural port wine sauce. As the guests to continue to dine, once again the bride’s father George took center stage to give a sentimental toast to his daughter and new son-in-law. After wiping away their timely tears of joy, the new couple danced their first dance to Alan Jackson’s, “Remember When”. Their dance was followed by the traditional father and daughter dance then the mother and son dance. The Michael Beers Band then opened the dance floor to all the guests who enjoyed dancing to a wide variety of tunes.
At the close of the evening, after wedding cake had been served and the traditional toss of the bridal bouquet had occurred, it was time for the guests to bid farewell to the new couple. As the guests line up inside and outside of the Hobbs building with colorful light sticks glowing in the perfect night, Curt and Makensie walked down the red carpet and were whisked away by chauffeur Percy in a timeless 1955 Bentley limousine.
