Erin and her family booked Californos antique Trolley Barn wedding venue with relatively short notice. Although the couple has been together for many years, when they finally decided to tie the knot, they were able to put the whole event together in no time flat! We first spoke on February 4, 2017, and by February 24, the event was confirmed. The entire wedding was planned in a window of eight weeks, and no details were spared! Despite a quick planning period, this wedding went off without a hitch, and our guests enjoyed many beautifully orchestrated and detailed moments over the course of the day.
Erin, Brandon, and the family were able to pull off a fantastic event despite a very short engagement, using a minimal number of vendors who were able to help with multiple services. For example, Californos was not only the venue for the wedding reception, but also for the ceremony, with the Saloon reserved for use as a bridal suite. Californos Catering team provided all of the food & drink at the reception, including all of the staffing, linens, china & expertise that goes along with it. Californos Chef, Marita Swift, even handcrafted some cupcakes for dessert! Californos is the place to go for quick planning and stunning results as our all-inclusive package and turn-key reception services! We've definitely got what it takes to get you hitched in a hurry! Just know that when you call, you'll need some flexibility with the date!
Please enjoy this entertaining video of their wedding day, produced by wedding videographer Surveyor Creative, and catch a glimpse of Californos Saloon space, used as a bridal suite, so that the ladies from the wedding party had a relaxing place to get ready for the big day! Bobby Kyser Events, new to Kansas City, did an excellent job and covered several bases for Erin and Brandon. Bobby did all the florals for the wedding party and centerpieces, decorated the ballroom window, creating a wistful and serene backdrop for the vows ceremony and first kiss! Bobby officiated the ceremony himself and provided the DJ for this wedding reception! They had the guests dancing all night as you can see in the video! AC Hotel Westport, a Euro-style Marriott property, is across the street from Californos and made for a modern, chic and very convenient home base for the wedding party and out of town guests!
