Jordin & Spencer’s Enchanting Winter Celebration
While most of us have warm spring days on our minds, this winter wedding is sure to capture your attention. Jordin + Spencer hosted an enchanting winter celebration at Berg Event Space, which exuded nothing but warmth even on an icy Kansas City day. With a lush palette of cranberry, hunter green and taupe, and centerpieces featuring lanterns, wreaths with pinecones and blush roses, the evening was doused with a perfect amount of romantic, seasonal vibes.
When asked about a favorite moment from their big day, this adorable duo states: “...after we had said our vows, made our exit, we just had a moment for the two of us.” Read on for their wedding day recap and more sweet moments just like this captured by the ever-so-talented Paige Sierra Photography!
How did you meet and how did he pop the question? Tell us your story. Spencer and I met in middle school when our parents worked together. Throughout our middle school years, we got to know each other and started dating on January 14th, 2007. We would joke about getting married, but always knew we really would someday. In high school, we went down different paths growing in our individual ways; then, freshmen year of college, we got back together. For the last 5 years, our love has remained constant as we grew together. In July of 2016, Spencer finally got down on one knee and asked me to be his bride.

Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. Spencer and I chose to use non-traditional music during our ceremony. We walked out to “You & Me” by Dave Matthews and left to “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles.
Did you have something borrowed, blue, old, and new? If so, do tell! I borrowed my stepmom's wedding bracelet. I wore a blue ring that my brother and I gave to my mom for Mother's Day. I carried a handkerchief that belonged to my late paternal grandmother. My something new was my pair of wedding shoes that my mother made.
