A St. Louis Love Story at Haue Valley
Featured Wedding: Amanda and David
May 5th, 2018
David and Amanda met in July 2014 during the Fray concert at Fair St. Louis through a mutual friend. Amanda fell for David's laidback personality. They took dozens of goofy selfies that night and felt an instant connection. The night ended with waffles, exchanging phone numbers through a car window, and an awkward kiss on the cheek. After that night, they talked non-stop and fell quickly in love.
It all started with a winning mail lottery ticket from a dealership and when Amanda and David went to collect their prize, they ended up buying a car together. While signing the paperwork, David looked over at Amanda with tears in his eyes and said "I'm ready."
After a month of anticipation and jokes about how he was going to propose, David asked Amanda to dare him to propose. Thinking he can't be serious, Amanda double dared him, he then got down on one knee and said the only thing that mattered to him was that she would be his wife. Of course, Amanda said yes.
The Wedding Details
There's no doubt that planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort. With that being said, imagine planning a wedding from another state. Amanda and David made planning a wedding from Cincinnati, Ohio look easy! They would tie the knot in the same city that they met, St. Louis. Amanda's dress was from Bridal and Formal in Cincinnati. Her hair and make up were done by STL Glam Co. Dinner was served by Two Mike's Catering with dessert to follow from Sarah's Cake Shop. Guests were entertained with a DJ and photo booth thanks to Applause Productions. The day was captured through shots by blk Photography and through video by Applause Productions.
A Note From the Bride
"I was so worried about planning a wedding from another state, and Haue Valley's team and their wonderful recommended vendors made everything run so smoothly. When I talk about Haue Valley, besides saying how beautiful the venue is (which it is stunning), I talk about all of the help that the Haue Valley team provides in the planning process and how it makes a HUGE difference to have a venue that genuinely cares about their couples and the quality of the services they provide. I love Haue Valley so much that I am debating coming to the reunion the day after our wedding even though we will have just been there. Besides picking my future hubby, choosing Haue Valley was the BEST decision we made for the day!"
