A Kate Spade Inspired Classic Wedding at The Chase Park Plaza, in St. Louis, Missouri

Cari Lewis (27 and a 6th grade language arts teacher) and Brett Cowan's (27 and a CPA) classic wedding was inspired by the designer Kate Spade. "Her fun, bright pops of color and touches of gold brought a sense of joy to our wedding day," Cari says. To fulfill this vision, Cari chose an array of pink, yellow, orange and green flowers to decorate the tables, bouquets and boutonnieres, paired with gold Chiavari chairs, gold chargers, and black and white striped napkins to round out and complete the look. The couple exchanged vows in a traditional Catholic ceremony at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, to honor Cari's late father and grandfather. The reception at Chase Park Plaza was an obvious choice for the couple, since they spend almost every weekend there, having drinks, listening to music, or catching a movie. In fact, on the night of their engagement, Brett surprised Cari afterward with the couple's family and friends waiting at the Plaza! "I was prancing around the lobby telling everyone it was where we would have our reception!" Cari recalls.
