Memories and Wine: A Saluki Wedding Night to Remember



Grab your cup of coffee, get cozy, because I've got the inside scoop on Britt and Riley's wedding journey – and trust me, it's a tale worth sipping on.


So, rewind with me to the good ol' college days at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Picture this: maroon and white, ambassadors of all things cool. Yup, that was us! Fast forward to today, and I get a call from Britt – the one and only – with a vision, a dream, a wedding extravaganza in the making. Guess what? It was a no-brainer – a resounding YES escaped my lips!


Months flew by in a whirlwind of venue hunting, vendor interviews, and design brainstorming. And then, boom! We stumbled upon the hidden gem – The Venue at Wildflower Ridge in Marthasville, MO. Let me tell you, it was like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Now, imagine this: walking into a venue that's still under construction, dust in the air, and a vision forming right before your eyes. Britt's face lit up like a Christmas tree when she saw those high vaulted ceilings. It was love at first sight – venue edition.


And here's where the magic happens. Riley's parents, the wizards of wine, wanted to sprinkle a bit of their personal touch into the wedding reception. Enter the wine bottle collection – a treasure trove of memories. We decided to jazz up the decor with these beauties, keeping it sleek and chic. Picture this: wine bottles turned into the most fabulous votives and bud vases, adorned with the freshest blooms you ever did see.


I could talk about this power couple all day, but why not let their gallery do the talking? Scroll down, soak it all in, and let Britt and Riley's authentic love story inspire your own wedding dreams. Spoiler alert: It's pretty darn magical! Cheers to love, laughter, and finding the one venue that makes your heart do a happy dance. 💃✨
