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!

Purple Prose: Amethyst, Violet, Iris, Orchid, and Lilac for K+R!

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!

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…
