Meet #SavvyBride, Shelby! She and her husband Michael celebrated a year of marriage in June of this year! The lovely couple were married at The Guild KC – a stunning 6,500 sq. ft. event space in the heart of downtown Kansas City, MO. The Guild is a breath of fresh air in the middle of the city with a distinct vintage interior, polished concrete floors, exposed brick walls, and a gorgeous salvaged 12-foot chandelier.

Let’s take a look at this #SavvyBride’s love story!


The Proposal

Each and every proposal is unique and truly special. Every couple has a unique engagement experience and proposals can happen in a variety of ways – in small intimate settings, or while surrounded by friends and family, or even in a new city or vacation spot.

Shelby and Michael were dog sledding in Banff, a resort town in the province of Alberta, Canada, when Michael popped the question! As the couple stopped on a frozen lake to take pictures, surrounded by the mountains, of course, Michael dropped down on one knee and proposed!


You’ve got the ring. Next stop, Savvy.

#SavvyBride Shelby thought she wanted an all-lace dress. She had found an all-lace dress during a previous shopping experience, but something just didn’t feel right to her about it. When Shelby came to Savvy and our Bridal Consultants fitted her in a Filipinas…she knew she had found her dream dress! This gorgeous wedding gown had the lace detailing that she loved, but with an added sophistication and elegance.

“Wedding dress shopping can be mentally and emotionally exhausting, but the staff at Savvy was very patient and paid attention to the details I was looking for in my dress!” – Savvy Bride Shelby P. 


The Special Day

After every proposal comes figuring out all of the exciting details of the wedding day! Months, even years, of planning the perfect details all come down to one amazingly special day. Shelby and Michael celebrated their wedding day surrounded by friends and family.

“Since all our friends live all over the country, says Shelby, it was so amazing to have all the people we love in one place for a night!”
