A Sparkling Winter Wedding at the Peabody

February 12th, 2016

Posted by Kimberly Wallner

It’s hard to believe Catherine and Will’s wedding was almost a year ago! While they didn’t quite have a Valentine’s Day wedding (they tied the knot on February 28th), their day was so romantic that it seemed perfect to showcase this time of year. We had so much fun designing this day with Catherine and her mom Nancy, who also happens to be one of our favorite planners. We were thrilled to not only design all the stunning floral elements, but to also bring in our sister company, Table Ten, for the seating areas around the dance floor, chargers and linens. Catherine chose a palette of ivory and gold with lots of sparkle thrown in, and requested we incorporate soft blush tones with the floral. Such a classic choice for a romantic, black-tie winter wedding!

So much thought was put into every element of this wedding day, which really comes though in the stunning photos by MNC Photography. The day was truly a celebration of Catherine and Will as a couple, and reflected their personalities and love for each other. From the thoughtful and love-filled ceremony at Memorial Presbyterian to the stunning reception at The Peabody Opera House (and snow flurries in between!) everything came together in the most perfect way.

Our favorite element of the day (and there are SO many beautiful details) is hands-down the draping canopy of hydrangea, roses, tulips, stock, carnations, amaranths, seeded eucalyptus and greenery that ran the length of the 32-foot long head table. Our lead designer created much of this massive piece on-site to get the right effect. This piece, coupled with glittering candles and soft flowers on the guest tables, created a dramatic and elegant reception space for Catherine and Will to dance the night away with their guests.

Happy {almost} Anniversary Catherine and Will, and thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding!

Classic Spring Wedding: Blush and Navy

October 27th, 2015

Posted by Kimberly Wallner

Kristen and Derek’s wedding this past May was classically spring, from the blush and navy pallet to the rain the morning of the wedding. But a little rain never stopped an amazing wedding, as you can tell from these GORGEOUS photos from the ever-talented team at Switzerfilm. Every inch of this wedding was perfection; sequin bridesmaids dresses, dapper guys in navy suits, the most adorable bride, and amazing spring flowers, all set to the backdrop of the Old Cathedral and Crystal Ballroom.

The Crystal Ballroom is one of our favorite venues and we work in it often, so we are always looking for new ideas to make each of our weddings unique. For Kristen and Derek’s, we collaborated with Tiffany and Amanda at Events Luxe to design and have custom Lucite stands built for the tall centerpieces. These leant an airy quality to the room that was both modern and classic. The reception flowers mimicked the bouquets with hydrangea and roses, but with the addition of beautiful draping white Orchids for an added wow factor.

Kristen loves sparkle, so Tiffany and Amanda set out to create tablescapes with a mixed-metallic theme using touches of rose gold, silver and lots of draping crystals. Table 10 Event Design provided the amazing silver chargers, and we love the napkin treatment of the Kate Spade inspired bow detail, which can be found throughout the day.

Thanks again to Switzerfilm for capturing the day and sharing with us!

Featured Wedding – Lauren and Bennett

March 21st, 2014

Posted by Lisa Molitor

September has become such a popular month in the “Lou” and it can definitely be attributed to the amazing weather.  It was not a surprise that the wedding day for Lauren and Ben was truly spectacular. I had worked with the bride’s sister on previous projects so I was honored they asked me to work with them on Lauren and Ben’s wedding.  We did a lot of preliminary planning between her mom and her sister because Lauren was living in Australia at the time.  When they moved back to the States, we were finally able to meet in person a few months before the wedding and work out all of the final details. The colors were soft blush with accents of gold except for a little pop of color in the bridal bouquet.  Lauren and Ben’s ceremony and reception were held at the St Louis Zoo and it was a perfect day for a wedding!

Pretty Blush Wedding

September 22nd, 2013

Posted by Lisa Molitor

Jessica and Jason were a super sweet couple to work with. They trusted everything that Lacy Branch Events and I put before them.  All the design elements came together and they were blown away the day of the wedding. The colors focused on blush pink and ivory.  It was truly stunning at the Renaissance Grand on Washington Avenue downtown…  the perfect mix of soft color and soft texture.
