A Springtime Wedding in Forest Park

August 5th, 2016

Posted by Kimberly Wallner

Spring in St. Louis is a tricky time of year when it comes to weddings. The weather can be rainy, freezing, or blazing hot, you just never know. May is by far the most popular spring wedding month, but as Aubrey and Matt’s stunning couple’s portraits by the wonderful Julia Noack show, the risk of selecting a date earlier in the spring can be well worth it! Their late March day might have been a bit overcast, but the trees in Forest Park were in full flowering bloom and made for a stunning backdrop.

Aubrey selected the perfect spring palette (and 2016 Pantone Color of the Year duo) of pale blue and blush pink; white and shades of green were also used in the floral, adding to the soft spring look. For the tall arrangements we incorporated blue paper cranes folded by Aubrey, which were a nod to her new husband’s last name and a tradition in his family. The cranes were a fun, personal detail incorporated in small ways throughout the day.

Both ceremony and reception took place in the Missouri History Museum’s Grand Hall, so our sister company Table Ten Event Design provided draping that was closed during cocktail hour to hide the room flip from the guests. Table Ten also provided café lighting, a striking navy linen for the head table, and silver chargers. The flipped room glowed under the café lights and provided the perfect setting for Aubrey and Matt to dance the spring night away with their guests!

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!

Corals and Pinks for a Spring Wedding

June 1st, 2015

Posted by Laura Katherine Smith

What a gorgeous day for this stunning couple… Felise + Doug! The couple wed on April 25 of this year and Spring showers definitely did not scare them away from taking the opportunity for some beautiful outdoor shots in Forest Park after their first look at The Chase Park Plaza. How can you resist the park for your wedding portraits?! Mike Cassimatis of MNC Photography had the pleasure of shooting the bride + groom along with family and their wedding party…

After their outdoor shoot, the couple and the wedding party headed over to  The Coronado for their ceremony. The Coronado is complimented by lovely details since the space is timeless and beautiful to begin with, we always enjoy working with the awesome staff there and they do a phenomenal job every step of the way.
