plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Cultural weddings rock my socks off. The meaning, the love, the tradition. All of it. Joann and Mike take a nod to their families, but also incorporate traditional wedding details including programs, guestbook, and of course, a traditional ceremony. Beautiful all around. Not to mention that photographer, Clary, captured them so beautifully (and some of the photos are in film!).

Clary Photo

From the Bride:
Wedding planning was made easy with the vendors we used. We were planning our wedding from NYC and wanted everything to be simple, easy and organized. Our wedding planner took care of budget items, invoicing, rehearsal/rehearsal dinner planning, day off scheduling, etc. She stayed within our budget and made our wedding beautiful. Each our vendors was a pleasure to work with and was accommodating and fun to work with. Clary photo flew out to NYC and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She made us look like we’ve never looked before! Kelly at Crimson Petal took on a proactive role and set the mood of the ceremony and the reception with her unique and creative ideas. With the floods in STL that year, she was quick to resolve issues with availability of flowers. She stayed within our budget without compromising quality and beauty. Rockstar DJ listened to each of our requests and set the ever-evolving mood for the reception. We loved our wedding thanks to everyone who made it so special!
