Liberty memorial fall wedding in Kansas City

2016 Main Wedding | Margaret + Adam

It's weird to have two weddings at the same venue in one year let alone one month! After a two week break seeing other venues (it's not's me), I had another beautiful 2016 Main wedding.

Mardi Gras themed wedding

Margaret and Adam wanted to have a Mardi Gras themed wedding and they sure did pull out all the stops. From the appropriately dressed groomsmen to the florals to the smoke bombs and food, everything screamed Mardi Gras.

I feel like the images speak for themselves, so I don't need to go into much detail about the theme or this group. You'll quickly notice how fun these two are along with their entire wedding party. We had a blast spraying champagne, enjoying the perfect Fall colors, frolicking in the street, and playing with smoke bombs. Every detail was so carefully thought out and I couldn't stop photographing all the beauty of the day.

It was so beautiful that we ended up taking 6000 pictures from the day. Yeah... we went a little overboard. A lot of them are duplicates (including about 1000 pictures just of the champagne pop to make sure we didn't miss anything), but still, that speaks to how much there was to document.

Thanks so much for having us at your 2016 Main wedding! I'll see you again in the future 2016 Main. Well, I don't currently have anything else booked, but if something were to pop up, I wouldn't be mad about it.

- Hear from the bride -

Share the inspiration and atmosphere you're creating for your wedding:

We chose a Mardi Gras theme because we both love the atmosphere of New Orleans and we wanted to recreate the festivities with cajun food, music, and decorations. We both picture our wedding day being a huge celebration and a night to remember.

Share how (or why) you chose your wedding venue(s):

We chose 2016 Main because we love the location in the Crossroads. The space is beautiful - with exposed brick, a greenery wall, and (our favorite part) the collage of dog photos. Pat Galvin, the owner, was great to work with right from the start. The space is an art gallery, and we loved that we were able to select which pieces were put on display for our big night!

What is your most valuable piece of advice you can share with future couples planning their wedding?

Try to remember that it's a special day for both of you! Don't get too caught up in the details of what you think others want you to do - focus on what's important to the 2 of you as a couple.

What was your favorite part of the planning process?

Adam loved the food tasting with Scrape the Plate (it was delicious!!). Margaret loved the entire planning process - I had no idea how much fun it would be to plan everything and watch it all come together!
