In 1904, the World’s Fair came to St Louis and was located in our present day Forest Park.   Aja and Shukree’s wedding, which took place in Forest Park, was a gorgeous and formal affair which nodded to the World’s Fair in a modern way.

This couple was so much fun to work with.  Aja and Shu live in NYC and came to us to handle their wedding planning for about a year.  Aja works for Macy’s corporate in Manhattan, and Shu is a filmmaker.  (By the way, check out his amazing film here).   The two of them are amazing together, and we had so much fun creating this fun yet formal event for them!
