A Classic, Romantic Wedding at University Club of MU in Columbia, Missouri

The inspiration for Tricia LaRocca (30 and a neonatal nurse) and David Morris's (30 and a clinical psychology PhD student) wedding came easily—it was in the date. Tricia wanted to play up the springtime atmosphere of their late-May affair.  She combined a soft, romantic palette of blush pink, champagne and postal blue with peony, rose and hydrangea floral arrangements to help create a classically elegant feel for the day.  After marrying in a traditional Catholic wedding Mass, the couple whisked off in a vintage Rolls-Royce to a light-flooded reception at the University Club at MU, since both had attended the University of Missouri. The evening was dotted with thoughtful personal touches, including a cocktail hour that paid homage to David's Louisville, Kentucky, roots (hors d'oeuvres included mini hot browns and chicken and waffles) and a reception ice cream bar courtesy of Sparky's Ice Cream, where the couple had their first date. Favors of pink raspberry macarons ended the night on a sweet note.
