An Intimate, Romantic Wedding at City Cottage on Chouteau in St. Louis, Missouri

Stephanie Smith and Philip Schumacher wanted a natural and romantic feel for their wedding. The bouquets and boutonnieres were made of blush pink and burgundy garden roses, complementing the gray bridesmaid dresses, the classic black tuxedos and Stephanie's sheath wedding dress with a scalloped neckline. The ceremony was held outdoors in a garden with minimal decoration to highlight the natural beauty of the space. The indoor reception was simple and intimate with minimal centerpieces and candlelight lighting. Burlap tablecloths, lanterns and farm tables and chairs added some rustic charm to the reception space. After dinner, in lieu of a traditional wedding cake, a variety of small cakes from Whole Foods were served to guests.
