Missouri Athletic Club
Laura and Patrick were married at St. Clement’s Church in DesPeres, Missouri, the church that Laura grew up going to. The church’s modern wooden architecture and stained glass provided a beautiful setting for the ceremony. Emily designed the custom invitations and ceremony programs, tailored to meet Laura’s requests. The bridesmaid bouquets included bright pink roses that provided a nice contrast with the navy blue dresses. Following the ceremony, Laura and Patrick hopped on a shuttle with the wedding party and drove through Chik-Fil-A to grab lunch before heading downtown for photos at St. Louis University and The Forest Park Muny Opera House.
Chandeliers, heavy maroon, velvet curtains decorated the ballroom at the Missouri Athletic Club, along with fresh flower arrangements that Laura’s mom had helped design. A close family friend gifted the couple an amazing array of hand-made chocolates that were so good they disappeared before the dancing started!
