Lauren + Reggie wedding {by kate}

Lauren and Reggie and a fun and unique couple who love to travel. In fact, I have seen a few of their honeymoon pics and it involves LEMURS.  That’s right.  How much cooler can anything be?!  But the honeymoon isn’t the point here… the wedding is!  There were so many fun cute things at this wedding there was no way to include them all in the blog, so this is by no means comprehensive of all the cute-ness… but you will get the general idea! LOL  We are going to kick this one off with ‘man details’ at the iconic Cheshire Inn, right here in St. Louis.

how cute are these wine openers that also served as the save the dates?  (the Ferragamos are pretty nice too!) LOL

apparently Reggie loves to fish, so the blue marlin bowties were a must.

We managed to snap a few portraits out in the open before the rain started… forcing us under cover and also changing the ceremony from the Grand Basin to the shelter of the World’s Fair Pavilion.

Every guest got a monogrammed wine glass with a personal note to take home as their favor, and also their place card! (including me, which works out, because I’m a Hayes too… so the H is perfect!)

The wine for the night was a special treat… a red from a small italian maker that Lauren and Reggie loved on their trip to Italy (where they got engaged!)

a bright streak of sun came across the dance floor during the first dance, providing some super dramatic lighting
