Thank You For Your Service: A Memorial Day Tribute

This Memorial Day we want to send a heart felt thank you to all the service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and our country. Here at The Vow Exchange, we have been fortunate enough to have several military couples celebrate their big day with us and it's a privilege we don't take lightly! As a way of saying "thank you for your service" we extend a 5% discount to all active service members who choose to get married at a Vow Exchange Events Venue. Whether you need to make it official before you deploy, or you want to have an all out celebration with your military family, we treasure the opportunity to make your wedding the best day ever.

In honor of this Memorial Day, join us in taking a look back at some of our favorite men in uniform!

There is nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer.

Melanie & David - Summer Lovin'

Everything about Melanie & David's wedding was bright, bold, and BEAUTIFUL! These two love birds had a summer time wedding at The Vow Exchange with a Bottles & Bites Reception. They tied the knot, kissed under the sun, sipped champagne, cut the cake, and danced the night away! They celebrated their love with their closest friends and family and we were so honored to be a part of it all! Take a peek at their celebration and join us in saying cheers to the happy couple and their adorable family!

Celebrating Moms: Our Mentors, Our Best Friends, and Our #1 Fans!

Moms run the world. Or at least our world! Moms give us guidance, love, and support from Day 1. They teach us, nurture us, and eventually when it is time, they help us fly on our own. No day is that more true than on wedding day! Moms pin the boutonnieres, adjust the veils, and wipe away the tears of joy. Mom mode can't be turned off! That is especially the case for all the brides out there who are moms themselves! There's something so special about having your little one & bff be a part of your big day!

So this is a tribute to all the great moms out there. Whether you're Mom, Step-Mom, Mother-in-law, Grandma, or Mom-to-be, we want to thank you for all the love you pour out into this world!

The Best Day of The Year: Modern Twists on Traditional Anniversary Gifts

Happy Anniversary...to us! It's hard to believe but the Vow Exchange is officially 5 years old! One of the best things about being around for 5 years has been seeing all of our wonderful couples celebrate their own anniversaries. Whether it's your first anniversary and you're busting that wedding cake out of the freezer or it's your fifth anniversary and you want to celebrate conquering half a decade together - we've got the perfect gift ideas for you!

According to the one and only Martha Stewart, no one knows for sure who came up with the accepted list of themed gifts for each wedding anniversary, but it's a tradition that's been around for over a century! Although some of the themes may seem a little out-dated, we found modern gift ideas that celebrate the grand tradition but in a way that makes sense for the 21st century! 

YEAR 1: PAPER

12273778_10153308656145983_2581864240650200193_o.jpg

Lovebook

There's a lot of pressure to get the 1st anniversary gift just right. Absolutely "wow" your spouse with a personalized book expressing all the reasons you two were meant to be!


YEAR 2: Cotton

Swell Forever Blanket

Snuggle up with your sweetheart in a cozy cotton blanket with a personalized tag memorializing your love forever.


YEAR 3: LEATHER

il_570xN.1035268702_5xhg.jpg

Real Leather Wedding Date Key Chains

This set comes with one for your honey and one to keep for yourself! These real leather keychains are a constant reminder of the vows your took 3 years ago and of the life you've built together since.


YEAR 4: FLOWERS/LINEN

il_fullxfull.1394240446_ppbo.jpg

Bridal Bouquet Embroidery

There is some debate on whether the 4th anniversary gift is supposed to be flowers or linen. So why not get a gift that covers both?! Just send a picture of the bridal bouquet from your big day and Miss Konvalia will hand embroider a replica that makes the most sentimental keepsake ever!


YEAR 5: WOOD

81A9Ft5LSAL._SL1500_.jpg

Wood Chip Smoking Grill Gift Set

Couples who cook together stay together! There are a lot of extravagant things you can buy for a 5th year anniversary gift. But here in Kansas City, grabbing a couple of beers and gathering around some BBQ is just about the best way you can celebrate!

Old School Cool: Our 7 Favorite Vintage Accessories!

Blast from the past! We've spent the past 6 months designing and decorating our new venue, The Chapel at Heritage Hall. Inspired by the building's 1920's roots, we filled the space with vintage finds and art deco decor. With the 20's on our mind, we went back through and revisited some of of our favorite vintage accessories worn by our own Vow Exchange brides. We are obsessing over these and have a feeling you will too!

Are you prepping for your own big day? We took the liberty of finding similar but equally special items that you can buy straight on etsy! 

Heritage Hall: The Making of a Wedding Chapel

Back in October 2017, the team at The Vow Exchange Events broke ground on a new wedding chapel! The beautiful corner spot in the Historic Heritage Hall building was once a Mexican Restaurant in it’s former life. At the time it was perhaps the furthest thing from a wedding chapel, but we could immediately see the potential with its wall to wall 12 foot arched windows and it's 1920's vintage roots.

Roughly 6 months later, we opened our doors and wed the sweetest couple! See images of the journey we took by checking out some of our favorite before and after pics below.

You will be blown away by our HGTV style make over!

FLOWER POWER: OUR 10 BEST SPRING BRIDAL BOUQUETS!

One of our favorite parts of our "Everything" ceremonies are the phenomenal floral arrangements that our partner florists create for our couples! 

The Vow Exchange expert florists, Jillian and Jessica, consistently "wow" us with luscious, hand-tied, fresh flower bouquets. Best of all, we have perfected the customization process so making your dream bouquet is easy, affordable, and fun! You can even add on coordinating flowers for your wedding party! 

We went through our 5 years of Vow Exchange bridal bouquets and picked out our 10 favorite Springtime arrangements to share with you! Which one would you want to carry down the aisle?

HELLO BOTTLES & BITES RECEPTION, GOODBYE PLANNING STRESS!!

Ahhh! Megan and Jeff! These two sweeties joined us last April and let us create a wonderful wedding for them so they could just kick back and be in love. Sounds impossible, but it's not! We have heard many stories about couples who have had it with the ordeal of wedding planning. Our Bottles & Bites Receptions include the ceremony, cake, champagne toasts, beer and wine bar, first dances, and cocktail party buffet. We can even add on flowers and photography to complete the party. We will take care of every little thing so you can just relax, focus on your loved ones, and have the best day ever!

See all about the Bottles & Bites package here: 
BOTTLES & BITES PACKAGE

Where to begin! Our wedding in April couldn’t have been more perfect. From day one Amy was helpful, quick to respond and eager to help with any of our needs. The Vow Exchange is the only way to do a wedding in my opinion. From the officiant, ceremony, food, drinks, cake, photography, music and ambiance. This place does it all. We could’t be more happy with our special day and you seriously CAN’T beat the price, especially for the services you receive.

Happy Anniversary to Kansas City's Most Deserving Couple!

It's hard to believe it's been a full year since we celebrated with this amazing couple! ICYMI, The Vow Exchange (along with a fantastic group of local KC wedding vendors) hosted a contest in early 2016 to find Kansas City's Most Deserving Couple. Their magical day, October 8, 2016, was captured and shared in the 2016 December issue of HerLife Magazine. Where as the magazine may no longer be on the shelves, we can all relive their special day here (along with a few extra shots that didn't make the article cut)! Congrats Marlena & Adam. You are truly two of the most deserving folks we've met!

More Space, More Room to #ExchangeLove

After three years of seeing couples into wedded bliss at The Vow Exchange in the Crossroads, it is time for a refresh. Excitedly, The Vow Exchange Crossroads venue will be getting a small design update, mainly minor adjustments to some of our furniture and space configuration, effective December 1, 2017.

Couples might remember seeing a table with miscellaneous decor, as well as the legacy table, sometimes filled with photos and wedding mementos in honor of owner, Kathryn Hogan’s parents and grandparents and other times filled with personal memories for couples.  Now, those pieces have been replaced and what is the result? More seating for wedding guests!  “Through our four years, the one request unanimously made by our couples has been for additional seating. This update will allow our couples to invite up to 50 seated guests, 12 more seats than we can currently accommodate,” Hogan emphasizes.

This change was just one piece of feedback from couples who walked into forever at The Vow Exchange.  Hogan also adds, “We will be creating a super cute photo backdrop wall for even more places in our venue to capture your day. We think couples are going to really love the update.”

These updates will be available at The Vow Exchange as of December 1, 2017.  

 Main seating: The legacy table and buffet are removed for space for almost double the number of seats up front.

 In place of the entry table with miscellaneous decor, couples will enjoy a fun, elegant and welcoming wall perfect for a photo backdrop.

Hot in Love: 10 Famous Couples with Summer Anniversaries

Ahhhhh, summertime!

Sunny days, clear skies and love. The summer season is a popular time to get married, for a few reasons.  Couples who decide to get married during this season don’t have to worry about snowstorms and depending on the wedding destination, the event can double as a vacation for guests.  There are more opportunities for outdoor photos and other fun that just can’t happen in frigid temperatures.  This year, couples could even take advantage of getting married on what some may deem the lucky dates of 7-7-17 and 7-17-17. An easy pattern to remember when recalling your anniversary, right?

Our couples at The Vow Exchange have something in common with some celebrities who also decided to tie the knot in the glare of the summer sun:

Snoop Dogg and Shante Taylor (June 12, 1997)

Mostly known to the world as Snoop, this rapper and his wife have two decades of marriage experience to go along with his numerous hits.  While the talk of divorce threatened their relationship over a decade ago, these two reconciled and Snoop continues to cement his place in hip-hop royalty.

Victoria and David Beckham (July 4, 1999)

Those of us who grew up in the 90’s may remember Victoria Beckham as Posh Spice.  Victoria and her easy on the eyes husband soccer star David Beckham recently celebrated 18 years of marriage on Independence Day.  Here’s to red, white, blue and love!

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher (July 4, 2015)

Former That 70’s Show co-stars Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher recently celebrated two years of marriage after dating for three years.  The couple, parents to a son and daughter, have managed to keep their relationship out of the spotlight in spite of their celebrity status.

Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter (July 7, 1946)

The 39th President of the United States and his bride have been married for more than seven decades and representing what it means to endure through sickness and in health. With a little bit of luck and much hard work, the Carters look to have the whole “until death do us part” thing down pat.

Walt and Lillian Disney (July 13, 1925)

The name Disney is synonymous with childhood fairy tale movies, but Walt and Lillian Disney were able to create their own as they were married for over 40 years until Walt’s passing in 1966.

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo (July 19, 2014)

The lead singer of Maroon 5 and his model of a bride, Behati, are three years into the journey of forever.  The couple wed in Los Cabos, Mexico and we are left to wonder if the groom serenaded his bride with some vocals of his own during their ceremony and reception...

Stephen and Ayesha Curry (July 30, 2011)

The man who has perfected the half-court shot and helped lead his team to an NBA Finals championship in June, wed his bride, Ayesha, six years ago.  Mrs. Curry, talented in her own right, has gained notoriety as a chef and entrepreneur.  Together, the couple are parents to two of the most adorable daughters and clones of their father, Riley and Ryan.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi (August 16, 2008)

Ellen, one of the most vocal advocates for LGBT rights, and her wife, actress Portia de Rossi have nearly been married for 10 years.  While same-sex marriage did not become legal across the United States until 2015, these ladies were married in California, one of the first states to legalize same-sex marriages.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz (July 31, 2010)

These musicians began their life together on one accord seven years ago.  The singer and music producer were expecting their first child together at the time of their nuptials that took place in a private ceremony on the Mediterranean Sea.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux (August 5, 2015)

Many of us remember Jennifer Aniston’s high profile marriage to Brad Pitt.  The couple split after five years of marriage, but luckily, she didn’t give up on love.  Aniston wed actor Justin Theroux in a secret wedding ceremony just two years ago. Guests attended under the guise of a birthday party for the groom and helped the couple celebrate their love instead!

 

 

Post Season I Do's in Red & Blue

It's baseball post season and our beloved Royals are sitting this one out (it's okay, I mean we did go "all-the-way" 2 years in a row). For Andrea & Ryan, this is the year for their team The Cubs! All Kansas City-Chicago transplants are celebrating this fall by flying their red & blue. Andrea & Ryan however, got a jump on this banner season for The Cubs at their wedding this past spring. Complete with a Cubs garter and blue & red sand for their sand ceremony, Andrea & Ryan were feeling the love for The Cubs as well as each other. Congrats to this spirited couple and to their team for making it to the National League Championship!

Fancy Feet - Couples step into forever with style

Check out the fancy feet on these stylish couples! One of our very favorite things at The Vow Exchange is how each bride and groom brings their own unique sense of style for their big day. The only rule here is that "There are no rules!" Our brides wear dazzling heels, bold color, darling sneakers and laid back cowgirl boots. Our grooms break out their boots too along with fancy socks and fire engine red oxfords! (where did he find those?!) Enjoy this sampling of aisle style right here at The Vow Exchange.

And away we go... 17 of the Biggest "Little" Moments Before the Walk Down the Aisle.

One of the biggest perks from helping our couples celebrate on their stress free wedding day is sharing in all those little moments as well as the big ones. Enjoy these 17 "little" moments (all captured by The Vow Exchange photography team) that perfectly express the nerves, thrill and excitement before the big walk down the aisle! Don't miss #17 (taken by our photographer Meg Kumin) which should honestly be in a National Geographic magazine...seriously! Enjoy!

Kids take over The Vow Exchange!

SO. MUCH. CUTENESS! This week the kids of The Vow Exchange are taking over our social media... well at least their cuteness is! Over the past years and dozens of wedding events our photographers have captured some pretty epic shots of those little darlings who truly were the star of the show (I'm sure our brides and grooms didn't mind too much). We can hardly stand the cuteness and we're pretty sure you won't be able to either! 

I REALLY "MUSTACHE" YOU A QUESTION.

SO DAPPER!

SO ELEGANT!

HE DOESN'T SEEM ALL THAT SURE ABOUT THIS WHOLE BOUTONNIERE THING.
