A Rustic, Romantic Summer Wedding at Catering St. Louis in St. Louis, Missouri

Lilly Leyh (26 and works in education) and Sadie Pierce’s (28and a social worker) rustic barn reception was decorated with worn wood details and an organic color palette of sage, persimmon and champagne.

“DIY wedding projects quickly became my relaxation, and sometimes procrastination, activity,” Lilly says of burning their initials into an oak letter box and later sanding and painting windows to create custom signs. “Every project brought on new ideas and heightened my excitement for our day.”

Farm tables were set with lace table runners, mismatched dinnerware and flower-filled jars.

Sadie sported a custom suit and coral bow tie that coordinated with Lilly’s cheery bouquet and ballet flats.
