Middle school sweethearts, Julie and James, tied the knot on a showery summer evening at the St. Louis Artist's Guild. Despite the rain these lovebirds had a wedding that was simply dreamy. Filled with shades of pink and mint along with pops of gold, this wedding just oozes Kate Spade-style goodness.

From the Bride:James and I started "dating" in the sixth grade after a cotton-candy-laced kiss on the check at our school carnival. We wanted our wedding to be a fun reflection of that same youthfulness that inspired our romance in the first place. The design scheme was, in my opinion, a more chic than shabby Kate Spade-esque inspired theme, with a soft color palette of mint, blush and gold.
The ceremony and reception were both held at the St. Louis Artist's Guild, in the pouring rain - although, with such a wonderful photographer (Clary Pfeiffer) you'd never even know it. Our ceremony was at 6:00, immediately followed by a cocktail hour and the reception. Looking back, I think it would have been better to postpone the cocktail hour, so that James and I could have a few minutes to breathe it all in. We blinked once and the whole day was over!
Even though James and I imagined a warm, sunny outdoor wedding, the intermittent rain drops mixed with the notes of the quartet made for an intimate, magical ceremony. The soft rain ended just in time for the late-night ice cream cones and the dreamy sparkler send-off.
Celebrate your celebration in style, by adding fun tid bits to pretty up drinks. Julie and James opted for mint and green straws and mini yellow poufs to add a little fun to their guest's cocktails.
