What's it like to be a #WildHillBride?

Planning a wedding is, like, a pretty big deal. You search on The Knot, attend Bridal Fairs or ask your bffs for recommended vendors. You get on Pintrest and WHOA wedding choices galore. Maybe you've been in a wedding before, but planning one yourself? Yep, it can be daunting with all of the "unexpected".

 So....what can you expect after you inquire with Wild Hill? 

 

Step one: You meet with Jenni!

Jenni loves horses, dogs, cats- basically anything furred and four legged. She is the Wild Hill flower pro! Find a photo on Pintrest but have no idea what type of flower it is? Bring the photo to the free initial consultation!

Step two: You meet with Elizabeth!

Elizabeth is a Kansas City transplant who loves crafting & traveling. She is currently on Season 7 of Friends and would sincerely like to know if Ross and Rachel end up together (I MEAN COME ON!).

Step three: It's time to book!

Helpful info to have when booking will be:

  • Your wedding date
  • Your venue
  • Which coordination package are you interested in? (Check out our three options!)
  • Are you interested in rehearsal attendance?

 

Step four: Final Consultation

You are officially 30 days out from your wedding and we are meeting for the last time.** (Disclaimer: Not all coordination packages include one in-person meeting. Inquire with questions here!) Although we are one company, you will have two separate final consultations- one with Jenni for floral and one with Elizabeth for coordination. This will help you to get all your questions answered. 

 

Step five: Have the BEST DAY EVER!

And just like that, your wedding day has arrived! You have worked so hard to hand pick the perfect vendor team, linen color, specialty drink, etc. It's time to kick back and be pampered. Enjoy the day with your gal pals, family and new husband....you hold the bouquet, we'll hold the clipboard!

Sounds easy, right? Well it should! Our job is to lift any weight off your shoulders so all you have to do is focus on being engaged & enjoy this milestone.

 

**Each wedding planning process looks different. Please inquire to find one that fits your needs best!

 

STAY WILD.

Rylee & Brandon: The Guild

Meet Rylee & Brandon.

Brandon was delivering a UPS package to Rylee's office and it was love at first sight! Well...it took a bit of time for Brandon to work up the courage to ask for Rylee's number, but THEN the rest is history! They have the neatest love story and had the most incredible vision for their big day.

Rylee started her day relaxing with her gal pals at an Airbnb downtown. (PS- What a genius idea to rent an Airbnb for your bridesmaids the night before the wedding!)

Her gown was stunning with it's sweetheart neckline and cascade of buttons.

The fellas hung out at the Ambassador Hotel and decked out in the most epic suits.

My favorite part of a wedding day is the first look. I love the blissful look when a groom sees his bride for the first time and Brandon's reaction sure didn't disappoint.

Another reason I love first looks? It allows time for bonus photos such as this dreamy woodland session!

Rylee added a veil before walking down the aisle and it was the perfect way to complete her ceremony look. Rather than a traditional floral arch, they opted for a wreath they were able to re-purpose at the head table backdrop.

Their fun-filled reception had a pop of copper and a vision that enhanced the art deco feel to The Guild. 

Rylee & Brandon decided on an epic commencement to an epic night....and did someone say dress change?!

Well wishes to the happy couple- Rylee & Brandon, you are absolutely perfect for each other!

STAY WILD.

Green & White Styled Shoot

As wedding professionals, we often get asked if it's hard working a weekend job. Many things come to mind when trying to answer that question:

We adore our clients.

We get to work in the most beautiful spaces.

We get to eat CAKE.

But mostly, it doesn't feel like a job because each weekend we get to work with the most bomb wedding professionals! Working with your friends doesn't make it feel much like work. It is especially fun when we are able to collaborate outside of scheduled weddings to get our creative juices flowing for a styled shoot.

For this green & white inspired shoot, we had the pleasure of checking out 8th & Main in Grandview, MO. We had so much fun getting to see the venue and learn about their history. FUN FACT: this gorg wedding venue used to be a bank; you can get ready with your gals in the old vault!

My favorite addition to this space is the courtyard. Equipped with Edison Bulb string lights, a cozy fire pit & an incredible arbor-it truly is a turn key space!

Adding greenery to the modern horizontal fence created a pop of color and personal touch. Not to mention the bouquet bursting with texture! 

Whenever planning an outdoor event it's always stressful having to think about a "plan b", right? Not here! 8th & Main provides three incredible spaces for events- their vault room (pictured above), the courtyard and an indoor reception space...fabric backdrop and all!

We stuck to a green & white theme for the most part, but when brainstorming what sweet we wanted there was no competition against this fluffy pink treat!

So....is working a weekend job hard? Sometimes. But, is it worth it? Abso-freaking-lutely.
