Traditional weddings that take cues from vintage style have a certain charm and elegance unlike any other. Emily and Matt’s gorgeous St. Louis wedding was held at Cedar Lake Cellars, the ideal spot for a wedding with ivory and champagne details and saying I Do. With the help of Kristin Ashley Events, the winery wedding took on an elevated version of a rustic motif that resulted in sweet and romantic wedding style. These images from Kelly Pratt Photography are equally sweet and romantic, and we can’t help but smile looking at the newlyweds grinning at one another on their special day.
Emily and Matt
Cedar Lake Cellars, St. Louis, Missouri
Vintage with personal touches, while keeping an overall traditional feel. My engagement ring was my husband’s grandmother’s. I felt so special that I was able to wear this ring on my finger, and it really was the center of so much of our wedding inspiration. My dress was traditional but so perfect for me in my opinion, I couldn’t have gone another way. We gave the bridesmaids and groomsmen some ideas and color palettes to get started and then they all picked their own, even the jewelry. It turned out so perfect. People were able to show their true personalities while staying formal for our big day.

I don’t think I can pick just one, but my favorite hour was the ceremony. We only had a small group of our attendees join us at the actual ceremony, the ceremony was conducted by my groom’s Uncle, Father Tom and every piece of it was so very special and meaningful. It felt like it was just the two of us again, but surrounded by so much love, it was absolutely perfect and it literally was the happiest hour I have ever experienced.
The Couple Recommends:
Photography (Kelly Pratt), videography (Jason Gibson) and our florist (Tina Barrera). They were INCREDIBLE! Our photography and videography teams headed out to our venue months prior to our event to find the best location to get shots which made the entire day completely smooth, seamless and perfect. I love flowers, but I don’t know the first thing about them, and I showed Tina a few Pinterest pictures, and she was able to exceed every expectation I could have imagined!
