Rachel and Toby had their wedding at The Warren Place. While the venue location isn’t central to the Kansas City area, it is an amazing venue. There are three buildings. The first on the block is the chapel where the ceremony is held. The second is a full house that is yours to use while you get ready. The upstairs is set up with hair and makeup stations and individual cabinets for your wedding party to put their things. Downstairs has games and lockers set up for the other half of the wedding party to get ready. The third building is the reception space. It also has outdoor seating, and a cocktail hour area.
The best part of this venue, to me as a photographer, is that they allow you to set everything up the day before. Which means that you get to focus on getting ready and enjoying your day. For me it means I can capture all of your set up details with no issues of having to rush before your guests get there.
The venue owners have thought of almost everything that could be needed from a wedding venue. From my perspective, it seems that having a wedding at The Warren Place is a stress free experience. The only thing it’s lacking is more shade.
Rachel and Toby got married in May. This year, the heat has been intense. So it was sweltering on their wedding day. We were desperately crowding into shaded areas during photos, so they wouldn’t sweat everything off. Luckily, their ceremony was inside the chapel, so we weren’t outside for anything other than photos.
Toby’s gift to Rachel was probably the cutest wedding day gift I’ve ever seen. He wrote her letters from each of their pets, and included their pets’ photos with the letters. This is an adorable way to include your fur babies in your wedding when they can’t be physically present.
Their wedding at The Warren Place was swelteringly hot, but luckily the venue had a fan for Rachel to cool off in front of.
One of Rachel’s bridesmaids ended up getting sick and was unable to attend the wedding in person. So she got all dressed up and sat on FaceTime for the whole day. You’ll notice an iPad and a phone being carried around with her face on it. I loved that they found a way to still include her in the day.
It’s also clear that the ring bearer was not excited to have to walk down the aisle in front of all these people. He recovered quickly, don’t worry.
