Real Mia Grace Bride: Wedding of Courtney and Drew
We are so in love with the wedding photos we received from Courtney and Drew! Not only did they take pictures with three adorable pups, but they also had an amazing baseball theme! This wedding seemed like an absolute blast and we are so thrilled that we could be featured in their very special day!
“I found Mia Grace after having a terrible consultation at another bridal shop. After trying on quite a few dresses, I had begun to get discouraged. My consultant pulled a dress out of the back that wasn't like anything I had been looking at and urged me to try it on. She really wanted to see me in it and I am so glad I did. That dress ended up being the perfect dress! I had never felt so pretty in my life! Everyone we encountered throughout my appointment was incredibly friendly and helpful. I am not very girly and they went above and beyond to help me match colors and accessories to compliment my beautiful gown. I would gladly purchase another dress from these wonderful ladies.” - Courtney
Their Love Story
Courtney was a bartender at Chili’s in Chesterfield on day shift and Drew came in on his break for a drink. The Cardinals were playing the Reds and they started talking over their mutual hate for Cincinnati. After that first official drink, he proceeded to come in for the next few shifts she worked. He finally asked Courtney out and they immediately hit it off!
Courtney and Drew had gone to one of the last Cardinals games of the season, which just so happened to be a day game. They ended up spending all day downtown and once they were home, they cooked dinner together. They were in the kitchen dancing and being goofy like normal. That is when Drew got down on one knee and popped the question!
A Dream Come True
On October 28th, Courtney and Drew celebrated their union with a wonderful ceremony at the Garden Wedding Chapel. After they exchanged their vows and said their I Do’s, they continued the celebration with a reception at the Lake St. Louis Banquet Center! Courtney looked so stunning in her bridal gown from Morilee by Madeline Gardner, which features crystal beaded Alencon lace appliques cascading down the bodice. The phenomenal dropped waist, the gorgeous sweetheart neckline, and the full organza skirt are absolutely beautiful together! This lovely couple decided on a baseball themed wedding. She is a huge Cardinals fan and Drew is a huge Indians fan. Their colors were red, navy, and champagne. They had peanuts, cracker jacks, and red vines for their guests to enjoy! They entered their reception in their baseball jerseys while everyone raised corresponding team flags. It was truly a one of a kind, World Series win kind of day! Their wonderful wedding was created through the hard work from the following vendors:
Florist: Walter Knoll Florist
Caterer: Lake St Louis Banquet Center
Photographer: Ashlie Jones
Thank you so much Courtney and Drew for allowing all of us at Mia Grace Bridal help make your wedding a dream come true!
