We headed down to St. Louis to help these lovebirds get hitched on a sunny day in January. They chose the most idyllic location for their ceremony in a stunning art deco greenhouse, aptly called The Jewel Box. Guests were greeted with 3-story palm trees and massive ferns; fur coats were shed and sunglasses were donned as they witnessed a truly touching exchange of vows, drenched in sunlight and love.
From there, everyone headed to historic Lemp Hall, once a brewery, now an open event space with a decidedly German-vibe. The ornate wooden bar, exposed beams, and wide-planked wood floors provided a perfect backdrop for Kristen & Kyle's chosen decor: an assortment of vintage books topped each table, along with pinwheels made by the bridesmaids. But the real standout of this shindig was the dance floor-- We've never seen a crowd dance harder than this! The couple kicked the reception off right by surprising the bride's family with a mariachi band and no one stopped moving for the rest of the night...When it came time to head to the after-party, everyone lined up outside to send the newlyweds off with a spark.
