A Picturesque Summer Wedding at Heritage Prarie Farm

Sometimes A Fresh Event spends a weekend out of the city, and the results never disappoint. Kasey and Kevin’s wedding last July was an incredible celebration of their love — and after everything they had been through together, we were so happy to be there to help them enjoy an incredible event! There was so much heart and personal touches put into the planning of their day, from the displays of family photos to a cake made by the bride herself! Summer Leigha was there to capture the day, and we’re so happy to share more of their lovely details below.

We were honored to help this wonderful couple (finally!) get down the aisle.

Kasey reached out early in 2021, hoping to find the perfect coordinator for her wedding. After hearing Kasey and Kevin’s story — high school sweethearts that were separated for years by Kevin’s deployment only to then have COVID force them to wait yet another year to finally say “I do” — Jen knew that she, herself, needed to be their coordinator and couldn’t imagine anyone else being with them on their wedding day. Fingers crossed, she sent out the proposal hoping that Kasey and Kevin had a mutual feeling — turns out they did! It was magical to be with them as they were finally able to celebrate their long-time love for each other surrounded by their friends and family.

Three Things We Loved About This Wedding

  1. The bride made her own cake! We are firmly team “Have Whatever Kind of Dessert You Want To Have At Your Wedding” and it was so exciting to see Kasey take it to the next level and create that for herself!
  2. Kano the ring bearer pup: he took his role very seriously, and we were very seriously overwhlemed with how cute he was.
  3. One of the most epic sparkler exits we’ve ever seen! What an incredible memory this moment will be for years to come.

Congratulations, Kasey and Kevin! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
