Saint Louis Club, Clayton Wedding :: Jason + Lauren

Style, Grace, Timeless.   Three words I would use to describe the hometown celebration for Jason & Lauren.   These two lovebirds tied the knot in Italy earlier in the month.   (HERE is the link to their video from their incredible videographer, Sergio Pancotti.)    Jason & Lauren both love cooking, travel, and wine.   There is no better place in the entire world that is more them than Italy.   They brought a little of the Italian feel back to the States for the Hometown Celebration full of love, celebration, happiness and family.   Simcha’s Events worked with Jason & Lauren to create a day full of details that could not have been any more perfect for these two!

Some of Lauren’s girls were not able to make the long journey to Italy, so this was their first chance seeing Lauren in gown.   Their looks say it all.  :)

I absolutely LOVED the setup that guests saw the moment they stepped off of the elevator.   It was a perfect combination of family history and tied in the Italian vibe of their destination wedding.

The band was INCREDIBLE!!!!  They kept the dance floor FULL throughout the entire night singing everything from Motown Classics to the most recent hit by Katy Perry.

Each guest was also sent home with pasta homemade by Jason & Lauren.   This favor fit the couple and their love for the art of culinary perfectly!

By the time the dancing had begun, the sweet smell of fresh donuts began to fill the entire reception.    Stan the Donut Man was there cooking up some sweet treats.   Unfortunately for me, I was on the Whole 30….which sadly meant no donuts.   I can still close my eyes and smell the sweetness of this late night snack!!!   It took SERIOUS will power to turn these down!!
