Michelle and Brian's Wedding

320253

Our wedding was amazing! We found that an afternoon reception was less expensive and actually our guests stayed through the end, whereas with evening receptions the older crowd tends to leave early as well as people with young children. We followed the reception by a reception part deux at Bee Tree County Park, at the Frisbee pavilion where we had a "St. Louis themed" party complete with AB products, Ted Drewes, pork stakes, Dad's cookies, Gus' pretzels, and gooey butter cake, all famous St. Louis things. This allowed us to informally interact with our guests, give the out of town guests a dinner and something to do, and was our compromise for an all indoor wedding up to this point. We also have very musical families and friends, and we could all play music together as the sun set over the Mississippi. It was a blast and the day of a lifetime.

Great musicians and entertainers. The dance floor was full and everyone had a lot of fun. We listened to a half dozen bands and these guys were the best.

Florists

Watler and Robin couldn't have been nicer people or easier to work with. We wanted wild flowers, and they made the most beautiful arrangements and decorations, and even stopped by my mom's house when her schedule didn't allow her to meet at their store. Wonderful people and a wonderful business; a St. Louis family business passed through the generations.

Photographers

Professional and artistic, Tamara does beautiful, personal work. Not part of a large photography group, we knew that Tamara would be the one taking photos, not the employees assigned to our wedding that day as would be with other photographers. She is wonderful to work with and is extremely talented. We will remember our wedding forever through the beautiful and meaningful photos she took for us.

Cannot beat what you get for their price. We also had McArthur's bakery, famous in St. Louis, for our cake of which we got a discount going through Royale Orleans. Great invitation discounts as well.
