Rustic Elegance: Libby and David’s Romantic Wedding

May 31st, 2017

Posted by Kimberly Wallner

Libby and David are just the sweetest couple. They met during a middle school production of “Snoopy!” and finally began dating at the end of college. We’re not sure why it took them so long, because it’s pretty clear these two are perfect for each other! Their wedding day at St. Louis Country Club was a beautiful blend of rustic and elegant, and we were so thrilled to be able to design the day and bring Libby’s vision to life.

Upon arriving guests were greeted by a violinist on the path to the ceremony, which set the tone for the evening. The ceremony took place on the lawn behind the club and despite rain the day before and worries that we would have to move inside, the sky cleared and we were able to proceed with the original plan. The aisle was lined with lanterns, pillar candles and seeded eucalyptus, which lead to a lush, floral-covered chuppah, complete with a crystal chandelier for an elegant twist on the rustic structure. It was the perfect setting for the personal, love-filled ceremony!

Immediately following the ceremony guests moved to the patio for cocktail hour. We enhanced the space with café lights, chandeliers, a half-moon bar and lounge seating to bring the indoors outside. Guests mingled on the patio and lawn while the artist Libby’s dad hired as a surprise finished his oil painting of the ceremony (such a fun idea!)

Most of Libby’s reception inspiration stemmed from weddings on the west coast where mixing chair and table styles is a common trend, so we spent a lot of time curating a combination to complement the esthetic Libby was striving for. For the floral elements inside the dining room, we chose greenery garlands for the wood parsons tables and soft floral arrangements on the round tables. Gold taper candles and rustic lanterns were used throughout the space to tie the tables together. The look came together beautifully and really added a rustic element to the formal dining room of the club, while still complimenting the wall murals and formal feel of the space.

The entire day was beautiful, but our favorite thing looking back on the amazing photos by Carretto Studio is the love between Libby and David. It radiates from the photos! These two had so much fun on their wedding day, and we couldn’t be more honored to have been a part of it!

Blair and her mom came to see me with their wedding designer, Lacy Branch of Lacy Branch Events. Lacy and I had already had a meeting prior to them coming in and we were super excited about what we were going to show them. Lacy had these beautiful Navy Sequin Linens made that we paired with shades of pink flowers and grey containers. Blair and her mom, Lynda, were so excited when we showed them what we had in mind for the reception. They just loved everything when they saw it at the studio.  Little did that prepare them for what it was going to look like in the Grand Hall of the Peabody Opera House!

I am so happy that I was able to be a part of their day.  It was a gorgeous day filled with happiness and love… What more do you need for a wedding?

Featured Wedding – Mindy & Troy

March 21st, 2013

Working with Lacy Branch for the design concept for this wedding was a new experience.  Never before had we done all long tables in a space.  We have mixed long tables and round tables a few other times, but this wedding was on a smaller scale so Lacy wanted something very dramatic.  With the wedding in September, Lacy and the bride opted for a color palette of Red and Gold with White Floral to help lighten things up a bit.

With a beautiful ceremony at Graham Chapel on the campus of Washington University, then the exquisite reception at Coronado Ballroom, it was indeed a day to remember. The event was styled/coordinated by Lacy Branch Events and photographed by Callaway Gable.  Check it out…
