Name: Regina, AT Editor Location: Kansas Tallgrass Prairie Link: Flint Hills Ranch Description: During last year's Escapes Month, we escaped to the Tallgrass Prairie of Kansas. We were there to find the perfect wedding location in the landscape we love most: that of the Tallgrass Prairie. This year, when we got married, we escaped there once again for the ceremony.

We found our dream landscape at Flint Hills Ranch, a getaway for those looking to be ranchers for a day. We didn't do any ranching there - just got married - but the ranchers there were gracious hosts to us and our families.

A reception was then held at our family's home - it was an evening out under the stars, dining with family and friends in the field our family has tended for generations.

The escape for us was twofold: One, to the rolling and almost surreal hills of the Tallgrass Prairie. Two, to a fun party in the field where we grew up, with all of those who are dear to us.
