“Elegant, intimate, fun, joyous and perfect!”
That’s how Julie described her winter wedding, and it all began with a charming knock-knock joke (more of that sweet proposal to come).
Julie and Jim created a wintry, holiday feel for their intimate wedding at the Ritz-Carlton St. Louis with candlelight, greenery, and a big ol’ helping of happiness. Because what’s more holiday than love and cheer? Dressed in her Candice gown, Mackenzie bolero, a white fur jacket and a glittering veil from Town and Country Bridal, Julie sparkled like the season.
Our fabulous bride shared the details of their special winter event below:
How did your sweetie propose?
“We were in Gulf Shores, Alabama and he tried numerous times but I kept messing up the plans – he had planned to do it at dinner at an intimate table for two at a nice restaurant – I didn’t know he had this planned so I walked up to the hostess and she sat us at a six top which didn’t make for such an intimate feeling. Then, at dinner there was a dock and he wanted me to walk out there and I said, “No – my heels might get stuck”. Back at the condo, he wanted to go on a walk on the beach and I said – no it was dark and might be dangerous. Finally, we were having wine on our balcony he asked me a knock-knock joke, which was “knock, knock – who’s there – Mary – Mary who? – Marry me?!” It was sweet!”
