After Jaimie and Marshall bought The Ludwig Building in downtown St. Louis, they knew it was the perfect place to host their wedding! With just three months to plan, the couple had to not only decide on decor but also fix up the venue itself. They chose a simple color palette of white and green that gave the space an elegant energy and looked beautiful against the architectural details of the historic venue. One of the most beautiful and unique elements of this wedding was the staircase lined with candles and greenery, which served as the ceremony backdrop. The only thing more captivating than the details was the bride’s stunning beaded-back Galina Signature wedding gown and romantic up-do. Thankfully for all of us, Photography by Ben and Kadin was there to capture every gorgeous element of this wedding!

We chose this venue because we bought the building a few months prior. We both knew we wanted our wedding to be in this space from the first time we walked into it. The fact that it’s our space and we were the first people to get married there made it so special for us. Everything else just fell into place.
Our photographers, Photography by Ben and Kadin, were amazing! I personally don’t really like getting my picture taken, and they made me feel completely comfortable the whole day. I felt like I actually got to spend some one-on-one time with Marshall while we were getting our pictures taken. It all just felt so natural.
Because the venue space was ours, we basically had to do everything ourselves. We had to figure out all decor and space prep ourselves. We then either hired someone to come and help, or got a couple friends together and had a wedding prep work night. We did everything from painting the walls to stringing lights in the reception area to potting trees in planters out front.

LOVE the back of the Bride’s dress. The cake is perfect! Nothing like a classic cake with flowers to pretty it up. Gorgeous.
