A Glamorous Four Seasons Wedding

October 17th, 2018

By Kimberly Wallner

While most of the world was busy gushing over every detail of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding on May 19th, our team was busy with our own glamorous wedding at the Four Seasons in downtown St Louis. Shaterra & Jordan’s day began with an elegant white and gold ceremony (and the cutest little flower girl and ringbearer you’ve ever seen). The draped ballroom, dramatic aisle and lush floral arrangements set the stage for the couple to say their vows.

While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, it was all hands on deck as teams from Belli Fiori, the Four Seasons, Décorum and Cosmopolitan Events transformed the ballroom from ceremony to reception. For dinner, round and long feasting tables filled the space. To add interest we incorporated multiple linen styles as well as Décorum’s Mod Table with a decal runner that tied back to the invitation suite. Each table style featured a unique centerpiece design, and touches of black were added to the white and gold color scheme with goblets, chargers and beautiful menu cards from Papered Wonders. The result was a stunning reception space for the couple to dance the night away with their family and friends!

Thank you to Shaterra & Jordan for entrusting us with your wedding vision, to the amazing team of vendors who made this day possible, and to Kelly Pratt Photography for capturing everything so beautifully!

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!

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:

Pretty Blush Wedding

September 22nd, 2013

Jessica and Jason were a super sweet couple to work with. They trusted everything that Lacy Branch Events and I put before them.  All the design elements came together and they were blown away the day of the wedding. The colors focused on blush pink and ivory.  It was truly stunning at the Renaissance Grand on Washington Avenue downtown…  the perfect mix of soft color and soft texture.
