Custom Just Married signs with starfish for tropical theme wedding

Trae is from Nassau, Bahamas, born/bred/raised.  But the wedding was in St Louis:

Enter the “island chic” theme.  Pretty different and unique when taking place in the Midwest, with no big beautiful bodies of water to speak of.  The theme was incorporated by the use of colors (aqua for the color of the sea, red for coral, and white for the sand) , subtle motifs (coral, starfish), and food (tropical flair).
