Picture Perfect: Hanna & Victoria’s Three Barn Farm Wedding

October 19th, 2017

Posted by Kimberly Wallner

I love fall… flannel, Blues hockey is back, and we can finally stop melting during wedding setups! But best of all it’s the time of year where summer wedding photos start rolling in from photographers, and just as things finally start to cool off, I get to relive all the sunny summer weddings we helped to create. I was especially excited to get this set of images of Hanna and Victoria’s wedding from their photographer, Bradford Martens. I had stalked his website and fell in love with his dramatic style, and I have to say these stunning photos did not disappoint!

Hanna and Vickie were married this past June at Three Barn Farm, and I think the photos speak for themselves when it comes to how much love surrounded this day. You can just tell how excited everyone was… it’s radiating from every picture! From the ceremony inside the barn where family and friends surrounded the couple while they said their vows, to the reception and dance party to follow, it was a wonderful day.

For Hanna and Vickie’s bouquets we wanted them to be unique, yet also compliment each other. Hanna’s bouquet incorporated lots of deep purple and sage green tones, including succulents, which she loves. Vickie’s bouquet was a bit lighter, with white peonies and pale yellow stock, but tied back to Hannah’s with purple hues and the same types of greenery. They were both beautiful individually, but also looked wonderful next to each other! For the other floral elements, we created pieces that were textural and a bit rustic to fit in with the farm setting. We used lots of succulents, lavender, and even kale, which worked perfectly with the purple and green palette. In the barn, a large greenery wreath that hung over Hanna and Vickie during the ceremony, and then later over the dance floor as they shared their first dance. It was an understated yet perfect statement piece.

This was such a beautiful wedding, and we are so honored to have been a part of Hanna and Victoria’s day! Thank you again to Bradford for sharing these amazing photos, and to Natalie of Simcha’s Events for planning an amazing day for these two!

Purple has traditionally been known as the color of royalty, and what better way to celebrate a gem of a wedding in a regal venue in St. Louis like the Renaissance Crystal Ballroom. We had the pleasure of working with Kathryn and her family on creating the perfect day for her and Roko’s nuptials this summer. We started out focusing on champagnes and purple tones, quickly realizing we needed to identify the perfect summer hue and accents while keeping it classic and refined for their reception.

A few lovely meetings later we were all welcoming the idea of soft lilacs and iris tones, knowing these would help soften up the purple palette and make for an elegant evening. Table 10 Event Design provided the backdrop of purple washed walls throughout the ballroom to enhance its dramatic original white columns. St. Louis Wedding Consultants brought that extra touch of making the evening flow seamlessly and end perfectly!

And with the masterful doing of Kelly Park Photography, it all was captured beautifully!

A Hindu / Christian Wedding Celebration

July 5th, 2014

Posted by Lisa Molitor

This beautiful day of combined ceremonies and receptions were a mix of Hindu and Christian ideas and it was a day that was quite a whirlwind.  The morning began with the Hindu Wedding Ceremony and then a cultural luncheon on the stage of the Peabody.  It was very dramatic with the rich tones of red and gold. The afternoon shifted into a new color palette and a new ceremony / reception.  The design went from warm and rich, to cool and extravagant with shades of purple, lavenders and whites complemented by silver and crystal to add some shine. This was a truly exhausting day for the team at Belli Fiori but so much fun and some amazing designs!

Here is a list of the fabulous vendors that made the day run so smooth:

Event Style and Coordination:  Lacy Branch Events  |  Photography / Videography:  Switzerfilm  |  Venue:  Peabody Opera House  |  Reception Caterer:  Levy Restaurants  |  Cake:  Sarah’s Cake Shop  |  Lighting / Décor:  Parties & Props  |  Rentals (Ghost Chairs):  Millennium Productions  |  Transportation:  JED Transportation  |  Horse for Barat:  St Louis Carriage Company  |  Rentals (Silver Chameleon Chairs/Tables):  Weinhardt Party Rentals  |  Candy / Dessert Station:  Creative Stations
