Melissa and Carson’s Uptown Theater Wedding


Melissa and Carson’s love story culminated in a magical wedding in Kansas City. It wasn’t just about two people getting married; it was about bringing together dreams, hopes, and promises in one unforgettable Uptown Theater wedding. This iconic wedding venue, steeped in history and charm, set the stage for a grand celebration of love.

The Love Story

Their story began with a twist of fate when Carson needed a date for a fraternity formal event and ended up paired with Melissa through mutual friends. Despite a memorable weekend together, life took them separate ways after college. But destiny had other plans, bringing them back together in Kansas City in 2020. Carson’s social media announcement of his move sparked Melissa’s interest, leading to a playful emoji reply and a first date over Margaritas at La Fuente. 

The Attire

Melissa stunned in a lace strapless mermaid dress while her bridesmaids donned various long black dresses, exuding elegance. Carson and his groomsmen complemented the theme in sleek black suits.

The Venue

The Uptown Theater provided a picturesque backdrop with its unique charm, highlighted by the marquee board announcing “Now Showing: The Burkes 8.26.23.” Its versatile interior seamlessly hosted both the ceremony and reception.

The Celebration

Black and white décor adorned the venue, accented with delicate white florals and baby’s breath, creating an atmosphere of timeless sophistication. Guests left their mark through an innovative audio guestbook, while a memoir table honored cherished loved ones. Melissa and Carson’s Uptown Theater wedding was expertly captured by Complete Weddings + Events photographer Kimberly, while DJ Angelina from the same team set the perfect mood with her tunes.
