Molly & Riley Kelly, July 15, 2023

By  0 Comments

Molly Kelly, 26, holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and currently works as a day service coordinator at GoodLife Innovations, a local nonprofit serving multiple counties in Kansas. “Our organization provides housing and day services for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. I take pride in my job and find fulfillment in helping others live better. My husband and I currently live in Overland Park,” Molly shares.

Riley Kelly, 23, has worked in the construction and remodeling industry for the past five years. “I enjoy being a part of the entire process of creating something out of nothing. It is fulfilling to see how an idea can materialize into reality. As a kid, I used to dream about having a certain kind of life, and now I am creating it every day,” notes Riley.

“Riley and I were introduced through a mutual friend,” Molly smiles. “Although we had known this family for years, it took some time for us to meet each other.”

Molly and Riley had a unique proposal and wedding experience. “He proposed to me at Love Lock Bridge in Kansas City, Missouri, with a necklace he had made,” she describes. “The necklace had a key charm that unlocked a customized heart charm that had our proposal date on it. We then added the heart charm to the bridge as a symbol of our love. After the proposal, we had a gathering with all our loved ones, which was a memorable moment for me.”

The blissful couple tied the knot on July 15, 2023, at Boulevard Brewery, which Molly and Riley chose because of its breathtaking view of the entire Kansas City skyline. Speaking during the ceremony were Molly’s best friends Madison Self and Annie Hermsen and Riley’s best friend Justin Schoenfeld. The gathering of more than 100 family and friends was a special celebration full of love.

Following the wedding, Molly and Riley vacationed in Colorado with their dog. In April, they will enjoy an 11-day cruise as an official honeymoon.
