Kendra & Billy celebrated their new life together at Californos Westport by hosting an intimate wedding ceremony outdoors, followed by a reception in the ballroom of our gracious antique trolley barn building in the heart of Kansas City's historic district of Westport. Thanks to Lark Photography and for the Bride & Groom for sharing these lovely images from their big day in Kansas City! Keep reading and below you'll find a quote from the bride, taken directly from her recent 5-star review of our wedding venue on a national bridal website.
"We had an amazing wedding at Californos! Couldn't have asked for a more accommodating and professional crew to help us plan (from Seattle) and move us through the evening events. The venue is gorgeous and really fit our style. We did an outdoor ceremony in August and dinner/reception/dance inside. We requested a full plated dinner rather than the buffet and they staffed up and served an amazing dinner, including a last minute kids meal option. Mig is a pro. Everything was so seamless. We also liked that the pricing was straightforward and inclusive. Highly recommend!"
Kendra & Billy planned a gorgeous reception from the West Coast, by keeping it simple and choosing Californos, a turn-key venue with all-inclusive pricing! They enjoyed the outdoor wedding ceremony on our spacious and shaded back patio in August, followed by an outdoor cocktail hour and a plated dinner in our lofty ballrooms to follow! Californos specializes in weddings and we offer a turn-key solution to your wedding planning adventure that appeal to busy brides like Kendra, planning her wedding while running her own pharmacy business in Washington State and planning from another timezone!

Hiring the right DJ or live band for your event can be a tricky venture! A live music element is absolutely amazing, and the chance to throw one of life's best parties certainly warrants the consideration to hire live musicians for some aspect of your wedding day. Perhaps a guitarist or harpist for the wedding ceremony, an Irish duo or a mariachi band during the cocktail hour would be the perfect accent to your most special day!
When it comes to the dance party itself, brides and grooms either hire a party band or a DJ to get the dance party started early and to keep the party hopping to the very end of the evening! Bands go on break, so make sure to interview your perspective entertainers about their capability and willingness to play from a selected song listing during dinner and any other break or down-time that they may expect. A live band can be quite expensive and so many couples opt to hire a professional wedding DJ or club DJ. If your DJ specializes in weddings, you know that you will have a pro weighing in on some of your timeline details and an MC to help you keep the reception time organized. Your wedding reception will fly by quickly and your DJ or MC will play a critical role in communication and timing of your event. From the wedding ceremony to the first dance and beyond, a capable DJ on hand is easy to recommend to any bride!
Call on Californos for some suggestions. We can guide you towards various DJs and Entertainment companies or live bands, based on past experience and client feedback.
