Damaris and Manny’s wedding was probably the most elaborate wedding Kansas City saw in 2020. Every element of this wedding was taken up a notch – or 10 and leave it up to Events by Elle to bring it all together to inspire us all. Let’s relish in the details of this luxury wedding at The Grand Hall for a moment!
To set the tone, let’s start with the wedding invitations.. because they were boxed for a unique unveiling experience and were metallic gold. As the couple got ready for their wedding day, they left no element of bling or glitz behind – Damaris wore a white suit with accenting gold watch and Manny wore a stunning long-sleeve gown with a fully studded tiara.
The ceremony was hosted in Grand Hall, with a focal point being created by using draping and metal floral stands. The fuschia florals brought the ceremony area to life and created a lush walkway for the bride to walk down.
The reception centerpiece was a custom gold monogrammed dancefloor. The reception seating featured a sweetheart table with a flowing-to-the-floor flower garland, elaborate place settings, and luminary candlelight. The ten-tier cake featured rhinestone and gold embellishments and was a statement piece with floral and candlelight surrounding its base.
As the evening went on the guests of this wedding were continuously in awe. The first dance featured a smoke feature over the gold custom floor. Then Damarius was surprised by a special dance performed by Manny. The band was flown in to keep the party going all night long… and it should go mentioned that Manny surprised everyone with a second dress that was equally as stunning as her first wedding gown!
THE LOVE STORY
WEDDING DATE: September 11, 2020
HOW THEY MET: While cleaning and greeting customers at work, Manny got the impression that I was checking him out and handed me his number. Since I was really just doing my job, I tossed it. The very next day he came in again and asked to hang out. Little did I know what that would lead to!
THE PROPOSAL: Manny didn’t do a traditional proposal; he asked me to be his wife three beautifully romantic times.
