Real Mia Grace Bride: Wedding of Caroline and Matt
Another gorgeous wedding for one of our Mia Grace brides! Congratulations to Caroline and Matt on their recent wedding. It took moving to a different city for them to meet, but they came back STL to tie the knot and begin their happily ever after. We are so excited to share their love story and beautiful pictures with you.
“[My Mia Grace Bridal experience] was fantastic! Mia Grace was not my first bridal shop that I went to and I wish it was. It came highly recommended by friends and I recommend you listen to your friends the first time. I felt so welcomed at Mia Grace and they make it very easy with the portal as well to stay on track with your own dress as well as bridesmaids. They picked out dresses of all kinds which I loved and it was easy to narrow down what I did and didn't like about wedding dresses, since I went in with not really knowing what I wanted.” - Caroline
Caroline and Matt met while working at Enterprise in Kansas City. They are both from St. Louis, so after getting to know one another, they realized they had some mutual friends. We hung out outside of work with their mutual friends and got to know each other better. Caroline realized Matt was the one when they drove back to STL together from KC for a holiday break from work. They were able to easily talk with one another for hours.
She Said Yes:
Matt proposed while they were visiting Caroline’s sister in LA. They went for an early morning hike and Caroline hadn't eaten breakfast yet. She complained the entire way to the top and kept asking to turn around. Once they were at the very top on a bridge overlooking the ocean, Matt grabbed Caroline’s hand and got down on one knee. She didn't complain on the way down!
The best part of Matt and Caroline’s wedding day was having all of their closest friends and family there. They made it special and the dance floor was fun. While they didn’t have a set theme, they wanted a minimal, classy, and elegant style. The reception was at the stunning Union Station Grand Hall.
