4 New additions to The Vow Exchange this fall!

Eeeeeee! We can hardly stand the excitement! It's that time of year when our most beloved brands are unveiling their newest products in time for the big Holiday rush, and The Vow Exchange is no exception! We have been working hard to bring you some of the most exciting changes to our offerings since we first opened. Our customers spoke, and we listened. Behold the top 4 new changes at The Vow Exchange!

#1 WALK-IN-WEDDINGS

Starting this September we will be offering WALK-IN-WEDDINGS! We get it. You are the couple who has been planning on making it official all along, but have no real desire to do the whole wedding thing. Or perhaps you are the military couple who needs your marriage to be official before the next big assignment. We hear you LOUD & CLEAR. Introducing WALK-IN-WEDDINGS! Offered every Friday from noon to 3pm, couples can grab a 15 minute spot and show up with their Missouri State marriage license for a short & sweet ceremony. Reserve your spot online or simply just show up to put your name on the list. Like Apple's Genius Bar, the simplicity of this wedding event offered at only $200 is just that...PURE GENIUS.

The Vow Exchange Turns 3!

Earlier in May The Vow Exchange celebrated its 3rd year of spreading the love!! We had an awesome turn out on a busy 1st Friday down in The Kansas City Crossroads. We shared cake, champagne, swag bags and played PB&J themed tailgate toss as well as took silly pics with our new photo booth props! It was a perfect night to greet the dozens of guests who came including past couples who wed with us and new couples planning their big day with us soon. It was a truly unforgettable night. Here's to many more years of sharing love and this wonderful business called The Vow Exchange!

Thank You Vegas! - The Vow Renewal That Inspired The Vow Exchange

"Let's go back to Vegas for our 10th anniversary!" I said. Where we honeymooned 10 years earlier seemed to be the perfect setting to usher in our next 10 years. In addition we also decided to renew our wedding vows in America's capitol of Love. "It'll be fun!" I said as I researched the countless chapels settling on a ceremony under the iconic "Welcome To Las Vegas" sign. Complete with minister, photographer and flowers we had everything we needed for under $1000 to say "I Do" all over again. Little did I know how incredibly special this little fuss-free celebration would feel. A night for just us two, we had a celebration that was about each other and not about all sorts of fussy details. "Oh if only I lived in Vegas I would SO open my own chapel" I told Mel. And there folks is where the metaphoric light bulb above my head came alight. An idea long reserved for the city of luck and lights got a farm fresh face lift and found a new home here in our home town Kansas City. What started off as an evening to honor our 10 years of love and commitment to each other ended up a new tradition for celebrating love right here at home. Happy anniversary Kansas City!   - With Love, The Vow Exchange

Love is Sweet with The Vow Exchange Wedding Cake

INTRODUCING The Vow Exchange's newest and most exciting feature, our signature wedding cake! This 3 tiered buttercream beauty features white wedding cake for the top and bottom tier. Our couples may select between chocolate, red velvet, lemon or white for the middle tier. Created by our premiere "Cakestress" Chef Nancy Stark, this cake is everything you look for in your big day confection. Layers of soft cake with the right amount of sweetness are decorated with smooth buttercream frosting in your choice of white (pictured) or gold and buttercream ruffles a the base. And of course let us not overlook our version of the modern day "cake topper", a glittered heart tipped arrow straight from Cupid's bow (this feature stays with The VX and is optional). 

The Vow Exchange team celebrated with a cake cutting of our own! Chef Stark was on hand to show us how to slice up and serve. Guests of The Vow Exchange will be served cake "food truck style" in kraft colored trays with wooden forks. Currently our wedding cakes are available through our Homestead Package as well as in our Premium Packages

A new season brings a new home for The Vow Exchange!

As many of our fans may already know, The Vow Exchange is moving to a new location this October! The building that hosted our business in its infant months is closing prompting us to find a new and exciting location here in our hometown of Kansas City. We are very excited to announce that our new home will be in the newly renovated Screenland Crossroads Building located at 1701 McGee Street in the Kansas City Crossroads! We are looking forward to joining the dozens of innovative and culture leading businesses in this bustling KC urban neighborhood.

This move which is several months in the making, is coming to a head as we open for our first events starting on Saturday October 4th. Our new space is every bit as charming and intimate as our old location featuring an authentic antique barn wood backdrop, festival lighting across the 14 foot high ceiling, and a bonus area at the back which can be used as a bridal lounge OR a few extra seats for those larger families and groups. Everything else from our furnishings, our packages, our pricing and our team will remain the same.

We will update our website with a new gallery once we have put all the finishing touches on our new space. In the meantime, we have a few to share showing the transformation of this beautiful new space.

As we say goodbye to our old location at 2005 Campbell and The City Ice Arts building, we reflect on 16 months and over 100 couples sharing their heartfelt moments, ear to ear smiles, and happy tears with us. We are sad to see this location go but will always cherish these memories and the seriously good "mojo" swirling around the north end of this iconic and historic building.

Everyone has a first love. The Vow Exchange will never forget 2005 Campbell.
