Having previously eloped to the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii – Kimberly & Kara wanted to host a laid back and intimate reception in Omaha for their family & friends. The Elmwood Park Pavilion proved to be just the right spot, and along with the help of some great vendors their reception came together beautifully. It’s a joy to be able to share their images below, captured perfectly by blackbird photographie!
FROM THE BRIDE KARA: Our wedding ceremony was intimate, casual and private with only the two of us. We couldn’t wait for our reception where we could celebrate with our very supportive family and friends. We would best describe the atmosphere of the reception as relaxed – we just wanted everyone to come out and have a good time! We had games, music, a food truck and drinks. My favorite memory from our wedding in Kauai was how absolutely beautiful and private it was. We had the actual ceremony tucked away on the beach under beautiful swaying trees. Everything felt so calm and peaceful. My advice for couples planning their upcoming wedding is to remember that in the midst of everything, don’t forget who this day is actually for.
