While the bridal party bus traveled about Kansas City, the guests made their way over to the Indian Hills Country Club; http://www.ihcckc.com for cocktails and dinner. The guests were treated upon arrival by a lighted ice sculpture of a capital "D" that was surrounded by the newlywed’s signature drinks.
