Hometown Couple Ties The Knot at Haue Valley

Kara & Kyle - October 13, 2017


The beginning of their love story

Kara and Kyle go way back, but love didn't find them until years later. Kara & Kyle both went to Pacific High School, Haue Valley's local school district, where they both were on the track team. Though Kyle had a crush on Kara for some time, he didn't work up the courage to ask her on a date until Kara had been away at college. 

Their first date was to Kirkwood Brewery, and their second was a homemade spaghetti meal made by Kyle.  After that, Kara knew he was a keeper. (She also loves beer, and who doesn't love a man who can cook?!)

The proposal

Kyle worked hard to plan a special weekend for Kara on their anniversary, kept her in suspense for what was coming, and sent her clues all week long. The weekend came and they drove to Hermann, MO. They stopped first at the Tin Mill Brewery, but Kyle wouldn't budge. He would give no more hints about future stops. 

Soon they ventured on, down a gravel road, and came upon an adorable tree house tucked away in the woods. Kyle shared is was theirs for the night. 

They settled in and Kara decided to freshen up for dinner.  Little did she know Kyle had brought along cheese, crackers, chocolates and a bottle of wine that said "Will you marry me?"

With a beautiful rose gold ring on her hand, they spent the night calling to tell their loved ones the great news. 


Their St. Louis Wedding Day

Kara and Kyle knew Haue Valley was the perfect fit when they first toured the venue. Kara always wanted a classy wedding with rustic details. She thought everything was beautiful without much decoration necessary. And in her words, "Not only that, but the staff is amazing and always very helpful and responsive."

Kara and Kyle, and Kyle's son Kaden, came together in marriage in a beautiful October 2017 ceremony at Haue Valley officiated by Cris Hanna of Life's Celebrations. It was captured by Kaitlin of Kaitlin's Photography. Kara's wore the perfect dress from Signature Bridal and Kyle's suit was from Joseph A. Bank

The two danced the night away at a reception catered by Two Mike's Catering.

We are so blessed to have shared this special day with a very special couple. It was also a milestone for Haue Valley; our 150th wedding couldn't have been any more perfect!
