Even though we were living in New York, we wanted to have our wedding in St. Louis.  Since we both grew up in the Midwest, it was important to us to have our wedding there so our families could easily get to the wedding.  We also love music!  Especially since I work in music, we wanted to have some musical elements in our decorations without it being cheesy.  When I found the invitations that we ended up using from ElloThere, I knew they were perfect and exactly the look I was going for.  From those, we designed the table numbers and place cards to have that same look.  We also took a lot of time figuring out the songs we wanted to play during our cocktail hour and reception.

The day of the wedding was super relaxing for all of us, and I attribute that mostly to Ashley our wedding planner.  She was amazing and super organized, which made everyone's lives so much easier.  The whole morning we were worried that it was going to keep raining and ruin the photo spot we had planned.  But about 10 minutes before we were supposed to do our first look the sun came out and the pictures turned out beautiful (probably because we had such a ridiculously amazing photographer)!  The whole day was exactly what we wanted it to be, a super fun party and a day to celebrate with all of our family and friends.
