Hey there! We’ve got another #SavvyBride story for you! Savvy Bride Grace and her fiancé, Seth, tied the knot at Union Horse Distilling Co. in Lenexa, KS on January 18, 2020!

This unique wedding venue is the perfect event venue for anyone who loves a craft beverage and wants that industrial feel! The venue has 3 different rooms to host events in and can accommodate guest counts from 50 to 350. The in-house distillery makes for a hip atmosphere with a variety of spirits to choose from for reception needs.

Here’s this #SavvyBride’s love story, in her own words!

The Proposal

Easily one of THE BEST days of my life!! We took a long weekend trip to one of our favorite places in Colorado, Colorado Springs! It was a sunny, beautiful day and we decided to do some hiking at Garden of the God’s! We found a pretty spot with Pike’s Peak in the background and Seth said he would take a timed picture of us. Low and behold, he was actually recording us and got the whole proposal on video!” – #SavvyBride Grace

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

Many brides-to-be are unsure of what types of dress styles are available before they go dress shopping, which can make it difficult to tell your bridal consultant what style you like when it’s time to try on!

Here’s what #SavvyBride Grace had to say about her wedding dress shopping experience at Savvy Bridal,

I knew I wanted something elegant! I wanted long sleeves since we were planning a winter wedding but something that also had an open back! The first dress Lauren Dean pulled for me was “the one”! I didn’t want to try on any others!” – #SavvyBride Grace

The Special Day

We wanted something warm, romantic, and cozy feeling since it was the middle of winter! We went with deep reds, light pinks, white, and deep green colors. Both Seth and I grew up going to Minnesota. We love the north and nature and wanted to involve birch trees in our wedding somehow.

“We ended up making our own altar out of birch and it turned out so beautiful! It was our last big gathering before Covid-19 and it was truly the best night of our lives! We couldn’t have picked the date more perfectly!”

Honestly, just seeing the love of my life down on one knee, asking me to spend forever with him!” – #SavvyBride Grace
