Effortlessly weaving classic details with a traditional ceremony and the laid-back, cocktail style reception these two cuties always dreamt of, this fabulous St. Louis affair was most definitely FUN. Think pretty paper goods from Minted meets a stunning blush BHLDN gown meets a crazy cool locale like City Cottage On Chouteau. Head to THE VAULT for every beautiful moment captured by Jordan Brittley and then press play on the sweet film from Pounds Media below.
From Jordan Brittley… This wedding is going to steal your heart away! With a BHLDN blush wedding gown, buffet-cocktail style reception, and the classic red St Louis trolley, you are going to have your cake and eat it, too! Oh! Did I mention the ruffled cake?!
Since Matt and Becca love food so much, they decided to serve food all night long: pizza, gelato, smores, and more.
From the Bride… We had been engaged for two years, so naturally, we were SO excited to see all of the fun, creative details come together! We were so excited to spend the day celebrating with our closest friends and family. Our guest list reflected the most important, special people in our lives, and we felt very lucky to spend the day with them! We wanted the entire day to feel like a big bash!
We wanted the day to feel like the most fun they have ever had! The reception was super fun to plan because we made it exactly how we would want it as guests at a wedding – a fun, laid-back, party-like atmosphere, with food and drinks all night! That’s why we chose to do a less formal buffet-cocktail style – so that guests can mingle and hang out, listen/dance to the awesome live “country funk” band, or sit by the cozy bonfire pit and roast marshmallows! We wanted everyone to be able to eat, drink & play all night.
