In the glorious presence of God at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Leawood, Nikki C. Boggess and Ross T. Miller were married in a magnificent wedding ceremony blessed by three priests and the Archbishop. Nikki is the daughter of Bob and Brenda Boggess of Olathe. She is a graduate of Kearney High School and received a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Kansas. Ross is the son of Terry and Terri Miller of Leawood. He is a graduate of Rockhurst High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Kansas. The couple met while attending KU and are both medical students pursuing a career as physicians at the University of Kansas School of Medicine.
The bride was escorted by her father and wore a captivating CB Couture gown, a very unique creation with the alterations and vision of the bride. The dress was embellished with lace and crystals over a v-neck and v-back trumpet fit that flowed into a sheath layered train elegantly trimmed in lace and crystals. The cathedral length veil was trimmed in matching lace and crystals. The bride carried a cascade of white and ivory flowers including hydrangeas and the couple’s favorite alstroemerias, wrapped up in a special family rosary along with a touch of lily of the valley from her mother’s bouquet. The bride’s attendants included her sister, Bridget Thoenen, as her matron of honor, Alexis Miller, Jill Wenderott and Emily Laskowski as her bridesmaids. They wore wine colored floor length evening gowns designed by Jim Hjelm, enhanced with Swarovski earrings and Kate Spade bracelets. The groom’s attendants included his best men Sean O’Connor and Richard Roberts along with groomsmen Micah Levine and Jordan Marks. Bode Thoenen was a fine-looking ring bearer and Sydney Luzader was the lovely flower girl.
The ceremony was followed by an elegant and festive reception at Mission Hills Country Club. The venue was decorated with a river of white hydrangeas, roses and alstroemerias by Final Touch Studios. The guests were seated for a delicious meal while entertained with speeches and the first dances. The delectable multi-flavored four tier cake, by Nancy Stark, was beautifully personalized with the couple’s distinct N&R logo. The night was capped off with a rocking dance floor thanks to the energetic and very entertaining Pat Lentz Band.
The couple was sent off with love and sparklers to end the evening. The honeymoon included a return visit to enchanting Napa where the couple was engaged. From Napa they flew to Bora Bora before returning back home to continue their studies to become physicians.
