Abbie, now Mrs. Schneider, was a 2015 Caitlin Elizabeth Bride.  I'm fortunate that she is also my sister! (Ok, we are sister-in-laws technically, but I don't like the term "in-laws")  When she got engaged, I was over the moon for her and her husband, Adam.

Beyond being excited that they were going to spend the rest of their lives together, I was was also excited to see Abbie's wedding come to life.  She has exquisite style and I knew her wedding would be out of this world.  

October 17, 2015 was a magical day and celebration for Abbie and Adam.  I was not the only one who thought so.  The St. Louis Wedding Award committee awarded her wedding and wedding vendors with the "2015 Wedding of the Year".  No question, her wedding vendors did an exceptional job to get every detail just right and make sure her vision became her reality. 

 

WHO DECIDES 'St. Louis Wedding of the Year'?

The award winners are chosen by The St. Louis award committee. The St. Louis Wedding Awards acknowledges and celebrates the achievements of the wedding industry professionals in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. 

 

WHERE DID 'St. Louis Wedding of the Year' take place?

The Chase Park Plaza legacy started in 1922 with the elegant Chase building.  The Chase Club hosted such big band acts as Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, and Jerry Lewis.  Through many additions and renovations, this is a main attraction of the Clayton business district in downtown St. Louis.  

 

Abbie and Adam's wedding was help in the infamous Khorassan Ballroom, the largest event space at the Chase.  One of the most fabulous and historic grand reception spaces in St. Louis, The Khorassan Ballroom has hosted presidents and dignitaries from around the world for decades.   It has a classic, elegant design with art deco lighting which organically paired with Abbie's art-deco cake and reception decor.

WHAT DID #CEBride Abbie wear?

Abbie wore an Allure Bridal Exclusive lace wedding dress in Gold/Champange.  The dress had a beautifully scalloped detailed v-neckline in both the front and back of the dress. The dress was the perfect color combination with Abbie's beautiful blonde hair and radiant skin.  Abbie looked absolutely amazing on her wedding day.
