A Springtime Wedding in Forest Park
By Kimberly Wallner
Spring in St. Louis is a tricky time of year when it comes to weddigns. 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! The late March day might have been a bit overcast, but the trees in Forest Park were in full flowering bloom and made for the perfect spring 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 incorporated into 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 enjoying drinks at the foot of the Thomas Jefferson statue. 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!
