The day after I became engaged, I called my sister in California and told her and asked her to be my maid of honor. She informed me that she just got a job transfer to Japan and would be leaving within 3 weeks so if I wanted her in the wedding we were going to have to throw it together fast. We were not planning on having an extravagant affair but 3 weeks? I found kcweddings2go on google and this angel named Nancy said not to worry, it could be done. It was one stop shopping. She was our officiant and she just automatically connected and fit in with our families and friends. She was our florist. She provided the most beautiful bouquet and matching boutonniere. And yes, she was also our photographer. She told us to pick the place and she would take care of the rest. We had our ceremony at my grandparents farm on a beautiful fall day and the best part was that my sister was there standing right beside me.
Married in the Rose Gardens at Loose Park
My Girl And I Got Married On April Fools Day This Year. It Was A Complete Surprise To My Fiance. I Planned The Whole Thing With The Help Of Her Mom, Sister And Best Friend. We Had Exactly 3 Weeks To Put This Together. I Came Across KC Weddings 2 Go During A Google Search. I Met With The Owner And Found That She Could Scratch Multiple Things Off My List. Rev. Nancy Agreed To Do The Officiating. She Also Could Provide The Photography And The Flowers. What? I Know Right? She Also Facilitated Getting Our Marriage License In A Timely Manner. I Had My Fiance Convinced This Was All An Elaborate April Fools Joke With The Help Of Her Mom And Sister. We Got Married In The Rose Gardens At Loose Park And It Was Perfect. She Was The Most Surprised Woman In All Of Missouri That Day.
Pastor Meg was a Life Saver
Many of my fears came true on my wedding day. 3 hours before the ceremony was to begin we got a call saying that our officiant was in the emergency room getting ready to go into surgery for a ruptured appendix. We were freaking out. Everything was ready and paid for and the guests were due to arrive in a couple of hours and we had no one to marry us. We started googling like crazy and finally found KCWeddings2go. We crossed our fingers and called and got a hold of Meg and explained our predicament. She told us to relax, give her the address and she would be there in an hour. True to her word she was and we had time to talk with her and explained what we wanted and she performed our ceremony and it was perfect. She was a life saver that day.
Found Nancy on Weddingwire.com
My partner and I decided that now that it was legal in Missouri for us to actually get married that we would do just that. Since neither of our families are supportive of our same sex relationship, we knew we just wanted a small, informal, intimate and FUN ceremony. We knew it would be important to find just the right person to officiate for us. Turns out that was not as easy as we anticipated. We talked to and met with many officiants. A few gave off a vibe of they would rather not do our ceremony. A few were so old and rigid that it would not be a good fit and a couple even flat out refused to marry us regardless that it was now legal. I found KCWeddings2go on the weddingwire website and I gave Nancy a call. She met with us the next day and we knew from minute one that she was our gal. We were struggling with where to hold the ceremony and on a Friday night we decided we wanted to get married in St. Louis and we wanted to do it the next day. We called Nancy and told her of our wild hair and she didn't even hesitate. Double checked her schedule, said she was good to go and met us the next morning at Bob Evans along with 5 of our closest friends and we began our roadtrip. Nancy rode with us and by the time we hit St. Louis we were all friends. Nancy had helped us get our marriage license the week before so we were good to go. She was fabulous and made it just perfect. She also is a photographer and she brought her camera and took some amazing photos of our special day. She gave us our images on a CD and we were able to go crazy with them. Anything you can put a picture on we have done it. Thank you Nancy for the amazing memories and for the friendship we started that day.
Leap of Faith
My partner of 11 years and I finally decided to take a leap of faith and get married. We didn’t want to settle for a civil union or a commitment ceremony. We wanted to wait until every person in this country was able to marry their loved one legally. We wanted to make it a spontaneous adventure. We love to ride our motorcycles so we wanted to take a ride down to southern Missouri and get married at the bed and breakfast we went to on our very first motorcycle roadtrip 11 years ago. Someone in our motorcycle group recommended that we contact KCWeddings2go. She thought it would be a perfect fit for us. Boy was she right. When we met with Nancy, we could tell right away that she was up for the adventure and would be the perfect one to officiate our ceremony. She also rode and was eager to give us our perfect wedding. By the day of the ceremony, she was already family to us. She married us that day as well as did the photography. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Thanks KCWeddings2go for everything you brought to our special day.
Thank You for Being You!
Thank god for Nancy at kcweddings2go. My partner of 7 years and I on the spur of the moment decided we wanted to get married on Halloween. We never thought it would even be possible to get married legally in the state of Missouri so we never really gave getting married much thought. Two weeks before Halloween we decided to take the plunge and once that decision was made, we didn't want to wait. We both grew up on farms in southern Missouri, so we agreed to a wedding on a hayrack ride with just a few of our family and friends. We contacted a couple of people to see if they would be willing to perform our ceremony. We could tell within 2 minutes that they were not really too excited about officiating the wedding of two gay guys on a hayrack ride. Then we found Nancy at kcweddings2go. After filling her in on our story and our wishes, she was on board instantly. She was enthusiastic, friendly, accepting, funny and had some great ideas and the knowledge we lacked to make this come together so quickly. She was fabulous and it was perfect. Not only did we find our officiant that day, but we found a new friend for life. Thank you Nancy for being you!!!
I did a search for wedding photographers in Blue Springs and the answer to my prayers appeared before me. I clicked on the Heartland Weddings website and saw the most amazing photographs I have ever seen. I knew I must have YOU as my photographer. I made an appointment to meet with YOU the next week and was even more blown away when I saw YOUR work in person. You have been so much fun to work with already that I cannot wait until my wedding next year. If you are getting married in the Kansas City area, do yourself a favor and check out the website!

Professionalism and Relaxed Manner
You have a rare ability to put the wedding party, family and guests at ease as you photograph wedding events. Because of this ability, our wedding albums are full of photographs of the natural expressions of people truly enjoying the day's events. Your ability to enhance the event, rather than detract from it as some photographers do, is evident in your work. Due to your professionalism and relaxed manner, the photographer becomes a natural and welcome part of the event -- you made the photographs fun!

Married at Powell Gardens
"Heartland Weddings photographer Nancy Kerr, has the talent and experience to capture some of the most astonishing images at Powell Gardens. From the moment I viewed her portraits at a bridal show, I sought after her as my photographer. I immediately noted what made Heartland Images different than all the others. Not only is the photography great, her professional advice, charisma and entertaining personality make couples feel at ease in her company and reassures them that they are getting one of the best photography services offered.
Each image recaptured numerous special moments and conveyed what words cannot. Her breathtaking portraits allowed us to relive that special day all over again! We took pleasure in working with Nancy. We highly recommend heartland Images to anyone, especially those considering getting married at Powell Gardens."

We will tell everyone about our great experience with Heartland Weddings! Too bad you only need a wedding photographer once!!!

On Time and Courteous
Nancy Kerr met with us early in the day at the hotel and created an ambiance and occasion that allowed us to be alone and enjoy the moment with and without our guests and family. She was on time, courteous with our guests, on top of everything, and I just got to stand around and let her make us look beautifully in love. Nancy took the stress out of it for us, made us have fun and let us be the 'bride and groom.
We just got our proofs back, and they couldn't be more beautiful. Their photography and videography are extraordinary."

Best Advice I Ever Got
My Boyfriend And I Had Been Together For 23 Years And Have Had 3 Children But Had Never Gotten Around To Getting Married. I Had Given Up On That Dream Years Ago. Then On A Thursday Night In November Out Of The Blue He Says Let’s Get Married. I Nearly Fainted. We Knew We Didn’t Want A Big Church Wedding. We Thought Eloping To Vegas Would Cost Way Too Much Money. Getting Married At The Courthouse By A Judge Seemed Kind Of Boring And Unromantic. Then A Co-Worker Told Me To Check Out KCWeddings2go. Best Advice I Ever Got. We Found Everything We Needed In One Place. Nancy Kerr Was Able To Perform Our Ceremony, Provided The Photography, As Well As The Bouquet And Boutonniere. We Were Married 1 Week Later At My Parents House In Front Of The Fireplace Where We Enjoyed Our First Kiss 23 Years Earlier. It Was Just The Way We Wanted It. Intimate, Personal And Unforgettable. Thank You Nancy For Making It Happen Before He Changed His Mind.
Epitome of Cool Under Pressure
KC Weddings 2 Go provided the officiant and the photography for my brothers wedding. Pastor Meg from KC weddings 2 go was absolutely a breath of fresh air. she is the epitome of cool under pressure. Her personality was an added bonus. The pictures she took were beautiful. They got a CD of images with copyright so we were all able to print off or order as many pictures as we wanted. Great business. Highly recommend.
One Stop Shopping
I’m sure it’s not for everyone, but my fiancé and I decided to get married after we had been together for 7 years. The crazy part is that we challenged ourselves to throw the wedding together in exactly one week. We actually met at a speed dating event so we thought we would continue the theme. The easiest part in finding the services we needed was when we contacted KCWeddings2go. One stop shopping. Officiant-check, Photographer-check, Flowers & Boutonnières-check. 3 birds with one stone. She also helped us expedite getting our marriage license in time. Everything else was cake after that. Everything went smoothly and it was exactly as we had envisioned. Lots of tears, lots of laughs and thanks in part to Nancy from KCWeddings2go, lots of great memories. Quick doesn’t have to mean less than or cheap or not as meaningful. As long as you surround yourself with the right people it can be perfection. Would highly recommend KCWeddings2go.
St. Patty's Day Wedding During the Parade
Do you know how amazing it was to find someone to officiate our ceremony and do the photography for our St. Patty's day wedding during the parade? We found out the hard way that you can no longer be married at the Jackson County courthouse by a judge. Who knew? So 2 days before St. Patty's day we decided we wanted to be married during the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Never in a million years did we think we could find someone to perform that ceremony let alone take some pictures and most of all be the coolest reverend in the world and made St. Patty's day even more fun. KC Weddings 2 Go did all that for us.

Saved Me a 3 Hour Trip to Missouri
I logged on to this site to search for a wedding photographer. I was not happy with anyone I found in Des Moines, so I branched outward. I stumbled across the heartland weddings website and finally found what I was looking for. Mostly, a photographer with a unique eye and a passion for photography. We have been able to arrange everything over the phone and through emails, saving me a 3 hour trip to Missouri. Thank you, Nancy & the Heartland Weddings Team!!!

Happily Married in Branson
I am 46 years old and was embarking on my 3rd marriage. I had already had my big fancy wedding the first time around. The 2nd marriage was at the courthouse with a justice of the peace. However, for my groom, this was going to be his first marriage and first wedding. Although he said he didn’t need a big wedding, I thought maybe his mother and other family members did want that for him or for themselves. He definitely didn’t want to get married at the courthouse. So we started to plan an intimate wedding that would hopefully appease everyone involved. We did a lot of shopping around for various vendors but before we signed any contracts we switched everything up. We decided to take everyone to Branson to get married at our friends time share right by Table Rock Lake. Out of all the vendors we thought we were going to hire, the only one who was willing to jump on board and go with us to Branson was Heartland Weddings. When we met with the owner to sign the contract we found out that she also is a licensed officiant and could perform our ceremony. Oh that’s not all. She also could provide the photography and the flowers. She showed us her other website KCWeddings2go.com that showed all of these services. So we booked her for everything she could provide and were not sorry. She travelled to Branson and she added so much to our special day. Couldn’t have been happier or asked for more.
