A Modern Chic Downtown Wedding in St. Louis

Captured at the stunning venue in downtown St. Louis, Willow, this modern chic and romantic wedding will give you all the inspiration for your downtown wedding. It features a modern, moody, and romantic feel it with unique table decor, two bridal looks and dresses, white and pink florals, grey flatware, mini cakes, pears with the dinner menu, tall candles, and a lot more inspiration for your wedding!

With a combination of modern romantic and a chic, minimalist wedding theme, there’s a bit of a classic and timeless feel to this wedding to give you a ton of ideas for your own wedding. From two distinct bridal looks, a neutral color palette, a DIY copper arch created for the ceremony and seating chart — to a modern 2-story venue with floor-to-ceiling windows all over, a cookie wall with stamped cookies of the bride and groom’s initials, a unique photo booth, a violinist, and gorgeous floral arrangements — this modern chic wedding is filled with inspiration for the modern romantic and classic couples!


The bride’s 1st look features a stunning Kenneth Winston lace gown from Signature Bridal in style Hazel paired with a gorgeous cathedral gown the perfect sparkly heels from Steve Madden. I’m obsessed with this bridal look because it’s elegant, romantic, and just gorgeous! The big curls hairstyle and smoky eye makeup were perfect for this look! The groom’s look stayed consistent throughout the wedding, but it was perfect for the modern chic wedding theme!

The bridesmaids dress is by Sorella Vita by Essense of Australia and the bridesmaid looked gorgeous in it! The flower girl had the cutest floral crown created by Poppie’s Design Studio. Take a look!


The neutral colors in the bouquet are just gorgeous! Poppie’s Design Studio creates the most beautiful and unique floral arrangements. If you need a florist for your wedding or event, you won’t be disappointed with their work!


I’m swooning over how the bride and groom pictures turned out. Such a chic and romantic couple!


The second bridal look features a princess-like Kenneth Winston gown that is so dreamy and gorgeous. It is also the perfect dress for a reception!



Hope this modern chic wedding gave you some inspiration for your wedding! I’d love to know which bridal look was your favorite. The first look with the lace dress and cathedral veil or the second look with a more princess-like gown and updo hairstyle?

I’m so excited to have this modern chic wedding featured on Wedding Chicks! Check it out below!
