Lauren Verhoff (29 and a marketing director) and Kyle Veroff (32 and an engineer) met at a comedy club in St. Louis where they were seeing a mutual friend perform. Kyle proposed on Main Street in Breckenridge, Colorado, during a walk after dinner. “He popped the question surrounded by string-lit pine trees and snowy mountains,” Lauren says. “It was perfect.” The couple exchanged vows in Lauren’s hometown church, St. Paul, which is an old German-Catholic church with beautiful stained glass windows and a domed ceiling. Loving the natural beauty of the venue, they kept the decorations to a minimum with Petals & Bells lining the aisle with baby’s breath framing the alter with hydrangeas. Afterwards, they headed to the Missouri History Museum for a unique ceremony under a giant model airplane. They used pewter gray, black and white for their neutral color palette and added pops of gray for a little glamour. They enjoyed apple, strawberry rhubarb and chocolate fudge pies from Sugaree Baking Co, and had late night grilled cheese from Butler's Pantry before the end of the reception. The next morning, each guest received a goodie bag with hangover remedies as a thank you for a great time.

The bridesmaids wore pewter chiffon cocktail dresses and nude heels. The groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos with bow ties.
“Our ceremony was at my hometown church,” Lauren says. “It's an old German-Catholic church so it was pretty formal.”
A Religious Ceremony at St. Paul in St. Louis
Lauren wore an ivory Intuzuri mermaid dress. “I fell in love with it online, which I know is a huge no-no,” she says. “I couldn’t help it. After trying on more than 30 dresses, I still couldn't get the Intuzuri dress out of my head. Luckily, a high school friend owns a bridal shop and was able to source one for me to try on. I knew it was the one from the first second I had it on.”
“Our reception was at the Missouri History Museum,” Lauren says. “It’s a beautifully grand building built in 1913 with soaring ceilings and walls of glass.”
The centerpieces were filled with hydrangeas and bells of Ireland.
Lauren and Kyle decorated their reception tables with gray linens and sparkly silver table runners for a little glamour.
Lauren and Kyle numbered their tables with numbers that were important to them. For example, table 19 was because the couple started dating on Feb. 19. Or table 301 was their apartment number.
Instead of having cake at their wedding, Lauren and Kyle served chocolate fudge pie, strawberry rhubarb pie and apple pie.
“Our band (Hollywood 5) was awesome,” Lauren says. “They were super up-tempo and played everything from Journey to Ray LaMontagne.”
