St. Louis Wedding for a Typical Couple

This is the start of an ongoing series I’m going to call “What the Band Knows.” As you plan your wedding in the St. Louis metro area, you are no doubt thinking back to all the weddings you’ve been to as a guest.  But those of us who “work” weddings, have a different perspective …. […]

Missouri Botanical Garden -- View From Wedding Reception Site
