Claire and Nick's wedding featured family heirlooms and meaningful details galore.
Vibrant Vows at The Village
Alecs Rumery’s favorite band, Amity Affliction, was making a stop in Kansas City on the Vans Warped Tour, and their lead singer, Joel Birch, was offering photo shoots, so Alecs booked a photo shoot for him and his girlfriend of two years, Steph Weides. Little did Steph know, this was more than a date at a concert — it was their engagement photo shoot with Birch behind the camera! During their three-year engagement they added a family member — their daughter, Presley, who was appointed the role of flower girl on their big day. She wore a custom gown that matched her mother’s and did a wonderful job lining the aisle with flowers before her parents tied the knot. Steph and her ladies in green got ready in the on-site bridal suite as they prepped for the day. The bride’s bright botanicals were a spirited mix of roses, mums, cornflowers and ranunculus, among others. Steph’s favorite moment was when they posed for photos as newlyweds, because “it was the only time we were actually alone as a couple to slow down a bit,” she said. Inspired by vintage décor, the couple opted for brass and silver candlesticks for the tables, while the cake rested on an antique Singer sewing machine base table from Alecs’ grandfather. Steph and Alec were thrilled to officially get married surrounded by loved ones. “We loved all of our friends and family being able to come together and help us celebrate,” Steph said.
