Crown Plaza Wedding Reception of Trent and Lauren

Hey everybody!

Let's continue the Trent and Lauren show! Their reception was absolutely to-die-for with really beautiful centerpieces, one of the coolest groom's cakes I've ever seen (hehe... you'll see!), and lots of dancing! I mean, LOTS of dancing! It was so fun!

I've said a number of times on the blog that I absolutely LOVE (and prefer) working with wedding coordinators because 1) they let us NOT be the coordinator 2) it allows the bride to be the bride (not the decision maker, setter-upper, breaker-downer, etc.), and everything always runs way more smoothly. Jenny at Before I Do (link below) was great and making everything run on schedule and look amazing. If you're planning a St. Louis wedding, check her out!

My favorite detail from this wedding was our place card.  Mere and I LOVE when our couples consider us guests.  I mean, we always have to eat, but it's nice to not have to cower in the corner or hide in the back.  Hahaha!  Aren't the flowers GORGEOUS?!?!  Great job by Tina Barrera (link below) on these bridal bouquet and centerpieces!

Okay... step back... admire this groom's cake for a sec... It has our photography on it!  Yay! That's a first for us!  Isn't it super cool and creative???


The Crown Plaza in Clayton has a beautiful ballroom for wedding receptions.  Those chandeliers are ridiculous!

So I had to include them in our very sweet first dance shot.  Agree? :)

I love this action.  The couple was killing it. All.Night.

I thought it would be nicer for me to put this shot rather than the one that followed.  Girls straight up hit the floor! hahaha!

It was a party!
