Let’s admit it, we have all been oohing and aahing over recent engagements: the dreamy proposals, the stunning rings, and of course the romantic pictures with the caption, “She Said Yes!” Now that the initial shock has set in, wedding planning begins, and it’s the perfect time to consider having a wedding planner on your team.
First things first – congratulations on your engagement! What a very special time in life. There’s nothing like that moment of popping the question or responding with an overjoyed, possibly emotional “Yes!” Cheers to you and your fiancé!
To soak up this exciting occasion, take the time to celebrate with every chance you get. You can call loved ones, have an engagement party, and embrace calling your significant other your fiancé or fiancée for the first time.
One creative way to get the word out is to share your proposal on HowHeAsked.com. This website overflows with sweet love stories and proposals! (It’s also great for ring advice and proposal ideas). If your story gets posted, you can share your dedicated page on social media while of course also changing your Facebook status to “Engaged!”

This January, we had the opportunity to collaborate with Butler’s Pantry and pulled together a fabulous photo shoot at Oak Knoll Park in St. Louis.
Inspired by the winter holidays, the room was full of warm reds and mixed-metal details. It was a sight to see! And taste! Lucky for us, that Hot Chocolate Bar wasn’t just for show! This was our first opportunity to work with BBJ Linen’s new MODA line, and we loved it! What a great way to showcase the beautiful St. Louis Community Foundation #2 at Oak Knoll Park. Check out the gorgeous results!
We had so much fun helping this couple make their dream wedding come true. We loved working with all of the amazing vendors to pull off this ivory, champagne, and gold evening. Cheers to you, Natalie+Derek!
