Meet the Simple Pleasures Team

The three principle directors of the Simple Pleasures team are Emolin Holguin and Ken and Elaine Miner. As an experienced designer, Ken designed and constructed the unique Simple Pleasures architectural and landscape features to complement wedding ceremonies and beautiful photo images. Elaine’s talents as both a graphic designer and lifetime gardener are on display throughout the Simple Pleasures’ grounds. In addition, this Kansas City native can cook up some delicious barbecue, something our guests rave about when we provide catering for their reception. Ken and Elaine’s passion for collecting and preserving historic pop culture is used throughout the 21-acre campus, delighting the wedding party and their guests.

Talented Staffing

Directors set the standards, but it takes more than directors to pull off fantastic weddings and receptions; it takes experienced professionals. We work with professional photographers, DJs, chauffeurs and other important team members to pull off organized, fun and stress-free Simple Pleasures weddings and receptions.
