“Let’s take a look at #SavvyBride Kaitlyn’s big day! This Savvy Bride married her husband, Mitchell, at Summit Hill Gardens Event Center in Chanute, KS on December 19, 2020! The event space has numerous flower beds, sculptures, a stone schoolhouse built in 1874, a greenhouse, a honeymoon cottage, and a retail soap shop in a reclaimed and renovated barn with a loft! A perfect choice for any Kansas Bride looking for an outdoor rustic wedding venue

Initially, this bride and groom were set to be married in the Fall, so they went with burgundy and slate blue wedding colors – which worked perfectly with their rustic theme after a few date changes.

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

The Proposal

Mitchell and I had been together for two years, though we had went to school together growing up. We didn’t date until after college and I moved back home…

Christmas Eve morning of 2019 we were getting up and around. I remember I was making the bed and little did I know that as I turned around he was on one knee. I said yes to my best friend.” – #SavvyBride Kaitlyn

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

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

My bridal style was I’d say…rustic and off the shoulder. I knew I wanted something with an A-line, lace, and off the shoulder. At Savvy I was able to find exactly that! I only tried on 4 dresses and the last one I tried on WAS the one! Savvy made it super easy to find a dress as well.” – #SavvyBride Kaitlyn

The Special Day

The most special memory from the day was dancing with our 2-month-old daughter. We were supposed to get married in October of 2020, but I had found I was pregnant in February. We had to postpone our wedding to December. Which meant our daughter would be at our wedding!”

“Mitchell asked me if he could dance with her at the wedding. He chose the song “Lady” by Brett Young. It was the most precious thing, to see the two most important people in my life cherish this moment.” – #SavvyBride Kaitlyn
