“Lauren & Joe married in December with classic, elegant design as their inspiration. They filled the Marriott St. Louis Grand’s marble ballroom with black linens, silver candleholders and evergreen garlands. There was just one nod to the holiday: Carolers and a tree hung with glass ornaments that doubled as favors and escort cards.” – The Knot

An aisle dotted with potted greenery led to a birchwood chuppah, where Margot and Drew said “I do”. Post ceremony, guests indulged in Jewish fare in the form of open-faced Reuben sandwiches and Westwood’s famous cheese bagels. For cocktails “Nothing makes Drew happier than a frozen pina colada,” Margot says of treating guests to tropical and watermelon-basil drinks. In a move that caught her groom completely off guard, Margot invited one extra guest to the alfresco cocktail hour: a Clydesdale horse. “My favorite memory of the day was when Drew caught sight of the surprise,” Margot says.

‘The newlyweds danced to Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” sung by one of the groomsmen. “When Rob and I first met, he played it on the jukebox,” says Louisa of the choice. “We always laugh about that moment and felt that because we also met in New York, that it was our song!”‘
