March 5, 2016 kicked off the wedding season and my beginning with Perfect Day Weddings and Events and it could not have gone better. Kelsey Evans and Justin Arnold were getting ready to stand in front of their friends and family and declare their love and commitment to one another. I had already witnessed their affection for each other at the rehearsal and could not wait to see their smiling faces as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife. And smiling they were.
The ceremony was held at The Jewel Box in Forest Park and the bright and sunny day made it feel just like a spring wedding. Kelsey was stunning in her form-fitting lace dress and Justin could not keep his eyes off her from the moment she stepped onto the crisp white aisle runner. When they began to read their personal vows to each other, every guest and vendor was in tears. Their selfless declarations and desire to have the best life together was genuinely moving. Every person in the room felt such happiness as they walked out as Mr. and Mrs. Arnold.
The rest of the day went by flawlessly under the careful watch of Tami and Valerie of Perfect Day Weddings and Events. The reception space at Neo on Locust and design was gorgeous with smooth gray tones and deep burgundy and blues. The popcorn bar was a hit with specialty flavors like Toasted Ravioli and Oreo from POPtions!
Table designs were simple and fresh with lush florals and clean lines.
The four cakes were displayed on elegant antique cake stands with lace doilies and votives for an extra touch. The naked cake was both in style and a hit with the photographer.
All in all, the night was filled with laughter and fun, tears, dancing, and one very happily married couple. Congratulations Kelsey and Justin Arnold! I wish you so much joy in this next chapter of your life.
