The best part of our job, hands down, is bringing our clients’ visions to life. Couples come to us with all sorts of ideas, and it’s our job to take those ideas and inspiration photos and turn them into reality. In the case of Sarah and Dennis’ wedding, it started with an acrylic chuppah Sarah saw as a wedding guest, and lead to her vision of a romantic, modern affair.
The difficult part was that no one in St. Louis owned an acrylic chuppah, which meant having one custom built. We have had acrylic pieces made for events in the past, but never anything as large or involved as this. We presented the idea to our “acrylic guy” along with sketches and examples we had seen from companies in other cities, and luckily his team was ready for the challenge! After consulting a structural engineer and adjusting the initial idea, they were able to bring the design to life.
On wedding day Lisa and I were a ball of stress, as we generally are when we do something new, but seeing everything come together was better than any of us could have imagined. For a see-through structure, the chuppah had a commanding presence in the ballroom, and it was so fun to see how excited Sarah was to see her vision come to life! The ceremony and reception were a beautiful combination of modern and classic elements, with soft pink tones, classic floral and modern acrylic elements. It was a beautiful day for a wonderful couple and we were so thrilled to be a part of it!

The Caramel Room has been open a little over a year now, and has quickly become one of our favorite venues to work in. Not only is the space itself amazing (they have quite literally thought of every detail) but so is the staff! It also doesn’t hurt that site visits usually result in snagging some chocolate samples ; ) Allie and Bill’s wedding kicked off a season full of Caramel Room events for us, and we loved being a part of so many weddings in this beautiful space.
When Allie came to us about her August wedding we were immediately excited about her color pallet. She had a very specific vision and we had a lot of fun playing with the blue and orange tones. It’s a combination we don’t use often, but worked so well in the space and for the time of year.
The wedding day itself was a bit of a whirlwind since a room flip was required, so it’s fun to be able to look back at these stunning photos from Sarah Corbett Photography and really take in the space! We loved this chuppah and the way the flowers pop on the royal blue linens, but the best part might be seeing just how much fun Allie and Bill have together. They were so clearly in love and excited to be married; it radiates out of the photos! Thank you guys for letting us be a part of your day.
