OUR VENDORS MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Our events come to life because of the talents, hard work, and good hearts of the vendors we work with.
We have put together a team of the best, most respected, skilled, diligent, and friendly vendors Kansas City has to offer.
See the individual profiles of our amazing team below!
Krista Wilson is one of our expert wedding coordinators.
Caring and organized, Krista makes everyone feel welcome and cared for. Krista also manages most of our social media and heads up the Altar & Aisle mobile decor service!
Megan is also one of our incredible coordinators. She is a former elementary school teacher so she has the skills to wrangle a group and make sure everyone is having a great time! She works on our First Friday events and special events at our spaces.
In addition to being co-owner of Cakewalk Events, Kristen is a wedding coordinating guru. She has run hundreds of weddings and receptions and is the best Emcee is KC!
Oh, how we love Joe! Such a breath of fresh air to be around and always gives us a great feeling when he walks in the door to officiate! Joe has just the right combination of good natured dad humor and diligent get-down-to business-ness. (Is that a word?) We actually met Joe when his lovely wife used to coordinate weddings with us and we wrangled Joe into our web as well!!
Kim is a super mama and the sweetest, most mild-mannered person all around. She is so easy going and so warm and friendly, she makes our couples feel completely at ease. She brings such a serene vibe to our weddings. We love you, Kim!!
Meet Sergio, one of the kind-hearted people we are privileged to know and work with. Sergio has such warmth and a deep love for family which shines through all they do. Couples love Sergio’s sincerity and soft spoken manner. Sergio is a person of faith and intellect who (fun fact) grew up in Mexico and speaks both English and Spanish. Amazing human and friend!
Meet Karen Angeles! She has hands down married more couples under our roof than any others and does it with such sincere emotion that we call her the "tearjerker". Karen has a true passion for joining couples together in the name of love. She is a doting mother and grandmother who has the most calming, supportive nature that she carries with her into all she does. We absolutely would not be where we are today without her incredible skills and soft touch.
Thank you for being you, Karen!!

JACK STACK BARBECUE
Another Kansas City classic original that caters our reception buffets.
Jack Stack was started by Russ Fiorella in Kansas City back in 1957, Jack Stack began as a traditional storefront barbecue stand with a modest selection of five to six items. To stand out in the competitive Kansas City barbecue scene of the mid 1970s, Jack Fiorella and his wife, Delores, began cooking gourmet meats over hickory wood and created the most extensive barbecue menu in the country. Today, Jack Stack Barbecue is in its fourth generation of Fiorella family ownership and has evolved into the largest wood-fired cookery in the United States. We are so pleased to work with Jack Stack and offer their incredible food at our events!
Bridget is a photographer and graphic designer who knows the importance of capturing moments in time. She has been a portrait photographer for over a decade, and has worked with Cakewalk since 2018. She always chooses to document her life through photos, and her ultimate goal is to extend this same heartfelt service to everyone she has the privilege of working with! Her family has called her "Bee" for many years, so Honeycomb Photo + Design is just an extension of her - collecting all the memories that are sweet like honey.
