This is a wedding that will warm your heart and wow you in one fell swoop. Stephanie and Mitch were married this past June and celebrated the day at the historic St. Louis Art Museum. This stunning venue has it all: tall ceilings, white walls, beautiful art, and views that will take your breath away. The couple’s wedding day vision was soft, feminine and sweet, yet classic and elegant. Kristin Ashley Events and Poppies Design Studio helped achieve the dream and  Mike Cassimatis was there to take it all in. We're delighted to share the beauty, today!
To set the tone for Stephanie and Mitch's classic wedding, a custom monogram was crafted by award-winning stationery designer, Cheree Berry, and it was carried throughout the entire wedding day.
A little rain the morning of the wedding day couldn’t dampen this couple’s spirits. The skies cleared right before the ceremony, leaving behind rainbows and sunny skies, which made for perfect photos.
Following the ceremony, guests were greeted to an outdoor patio cocktail hour accompanied by a signature drink “The Stitch” (margarita mixed with beer). With guests coming in from across the country, they wanted to ensure one heck of a party with lots of ‘Ooh!’ and ‘Ahh!’ moments.
From the very first design meeting with planner Kristin Ashley Events, a Southern-Living flair arose with linen fabrics, assorted styles of chairs, silver flatware, and mixed-metal accents.
Spectacular florals from Poppies Design Studio set the tone before guests even entered the venue. And romance dripped from every last detail with a gorgeous soft pink, ivory, and mixed-metal color palette along with touches of natural greenery. The wedding reception was unforgettable with florals dangling above an X-shaped head table.
Hundreds of peonies, tapered candles, silk ribbon and the tablescape was filled with touches of gold lining the glassware, paper goods, and the wedding cake. But the real star of the day was the couple, whose love for one another could only be matched by the love from their 230 friends and family joining them for this special day. 
Stephanie and Mitch wanted to be sure that everyone left happy and full! Each guest got a little taste of St. Louis with local, late night treats. As they nibbled on sweet and savory snacks, guests danced the night away. It was truly an unforgettable day and couple.
