Raise Your Glass…

By Lisa; The Wedding Celebration of Suzanne Victoria Hsieh and Matthew Thomas Schmitz took place on June 6, 2015, in the traditional cathedral setting of Redemptorist Catholic Church, Kansas City, Missouri.  The ceremony was officiated by Father Brian Johnson.  Millie's Event Designs was honored to be chosen as the bride’s wedding coordinator.

On a beautiful and warm Saturday afternoon in June, family and friends celebrated the wedding nuptials of Suzie Hsieh and Matt Schmitz.  The bow of the cello and the ivory keys of the piano played together the music of Bach, Pachelbel, and Morricone as the wedding party and bride walked down the aisle to the altar.  For the guests, the music sounded as if it was falling softly from the Heavens above.

The reception was held at The Terrace on Grand; beginning with a cocktail hour on the rooftop deck.  Guests were then belled down to the dinning room where the ceiling was lit with strings of little white lights and a star struck chandelier accented with white draping over the dance floor. Each guest found their seat and awaited the wedding party to begin the buffet style dinner. The menu was a Taste Signature salad with balsamic vinaigrette and ranch dressing. The main course was Marsala chicken and smoked brisket with garlic parmesan mashed potatoes garnished with roasted Italian herb vegetables.

After dinner the bride and groom were asked to come to the center of the dance floor by DJ Jon Bartlett with Remix DJ's; where they cut their three tier white icing cake decorated with green foliage around each tier. The cake table was surrounded with white, ivory and pale pink rose petals. The cake was custom made by cake artist Renea Feagin owner of Baked Expressions;

It was now time for the toasts, beginning with the bride’s father Dr. Wing Hsieh.  Dr. Hsieh took his place on the dance floor addressing family and friends with a heartfelt speech of life long memories of his daughter Suzie and a welcoming of his new son-n-law Matt. The toasts continued with the best man and then the maid of honor, the bride’s sister. After each speech the glasses were raised to toast the newly married couple Mr. and Mrs. Matt Schmitz.

Everyone's eyes were still on the dance floor as the newlyweds danced their first dance.  The bride’s parents strolled their way to the dance floor followed by the father/daughter and mother/son traditional dances.  Dr. Hsieh's parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary by showing everyone that they could still dance the polka.

No reception can be complete at The Terrace on Grand; without having your picture taken at sunset on the rooftop deck with the skyline of downtown Kansas City as your backdrop. Carson Swisher; was the photographer on site capturing that very moment for the bride and groom.

Every bride deserves a picturesque venue and celebration to create her lasting memories, contact Millie's Event Designs; today to begin your wedding journey.

Check Yes or No….

By Lisa; The wedding ceremony of Amber Lea Tierney and Nathan George Vaughan was held on Saturday, May 30, 2015, at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. Father Richard Story officiated the ceremony. A reception followed at David and Anita Nigro's beautiful barn setting.  Millie's Event Designs was chosen as the wedding planer for this blessed affair;

Today's the day that Amber and Nathan celebrated their "peach" nuptials with family and friends.  The  first note Nathan passed to Amber he wrote; "Nothing would make me more happy than to tell the world we are together!" Relationship? Check yes or no. We are here today, because Amber checked YES!

The barn reception was turned into an elegant setting with crystal chandeliers hung from the celling along with strings of little white lights thanks to Landers Visions. The walls were draped in white curtains with accent lighting giving the venue a more romantic scene.

Once the guests entered the barn they were treated to cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.  The menu was artisan mac and cheese bar. Local and imported wedges and cheeses cubes. Seasonal fruits and berries, caesar salad, sliced baguettes and cracker breads. Grilled tenderloin with baby greens on egg washed rolls, dressed with herbed cream cheese.  Organic baby greens with feta, toasted nuts and berries dressed with raspberry vinaigrette. Sliced smoked salmon with capers, red onions and dill sour cream.  Sliced baguettes, lump crab Rangoon dip accompanied by triangles of crispy wontons.

Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Vaughan made their grand entrance in front of family friends.  As they walked into the reception they made their way over to cut their cake and toast one another.  The night continued with a welcome toast from the bride's father, followed by a toast from the groom.

After the toasts it was then time for the first dances; bride and groom, father and daughter followed by the groom and his mother. The dance floor was open for all the guests to dance to the mix of DJ Nick Ridell.

As the guests departed they were provided one last "peach" treat to remember the day by. A cart full of peach preserves made by Grandma Black from the recipe from Great Grandma Bray.  All were asked to "spread the love" forward.

When your "tasty peach" comes along and you check YES, contact Millie's Event Designs; to plan your "fresh nuptials". We are here to help you celebrate and "Spread your Love"!
