by Ashley in Recent Events on November 10, 2010

Alrighty then! I finally got some photos from the infamous Dustin Steller from our October 9, 2010 wedding with Jen and Tim…and well I just had to share ASAP! As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I love Dustin‘s style of shooting and of course he captured some amazing moments! Thanks Dustin for letting me share with the world!

Jenny & Ryan: A Quick Recap

by Ashley in Recent Events | Weddings on November 7, 2010

Well we wrapped up our final Dishy wedding for 2010 last night and what a way to end the wedding season, with a BANG! Mr. and Mrs. Ryan and Jenny Kiernan :-) are such an amazing couple and it shined through in everything about their wedding day. Both Mizzou grads, Jenny a cheerleader and Ryan a basketball player, they couldn’t be more of a match made in heaven! I was honored to be a part of their wedding day and even more impressed with the amount of thought they put into each and every detail. Between the dueling pianos and DJ mixes, the limbo and several dance offs, this was a wedding to remember!

Here are a few quick shots taken by my always amazing Event Coordinator, Amanda. And as usual, even better photos will follow from the true photographer, Steven Seward!

Jen & Tim: A Quick Recap

by Ashley in Recent Events | Weddings on October 11, 2010

So who could have guessed that it would be 88 degrees on October 9th in St. Louis!!? Well it was, and while the weather was somewhat of a shocker, Jen and Tim’s wedding day was fantastic! I met Jen in college and was super excited when she allowed my assistance on her wedding day! Her creativity shined through in everything about the day and I was so happy to be a part of it!

I wanted to share a few of my always fabulous (but not always in focus) snap shots from the wedding day! Of course, these will be blown away once I receive the AH-MAZING photos from Dustin Steller, a well-known Kansas City, MO wedding photographer, that made the drive for Jen and Tim’s wedding. But I’ll take my chances until then! P.S. When Dustin’s not shooting, he is fairly impressive on the dance floor! No joke! :-)

Beth & Stephen: September 5, 2010

by Ashley in Recent Events on September 7, 2010

Two posts within two days?!? This is almost a Dishy first! But I just had to share photos from the AH-MAZING duo Mallory and Brian of Avia Photography from Beth and Stephen’s wedding this weekend! Why haven’t you heard of Avia Photography yet you ask? Well, it’s probably because they’re based in Columbia, Missouri!

Don’t fret though! There is good news for all you St. Louis brides out there…Mallory and Stephen TRAVEL! And trust me, it’s worth the additional mileage and hotel (if departing past 8:00pm) fees. Not only do they take fabulous photos, but they are a complete and utter pleasure to work with! Not to mention great dinner dates! And away we go…

Wedding Guest Hospitality Bags

by Ashley in General on July 21, 2010

Gift Bags Wedding Guest Hospitality BagsYou know what time it is, time to talk wedding guests! Everyone’s favorite subject! The reason I bring up this topic is because at some point during the preparation for your wedding, it’s pretty important to consider how many people on your list are actually coming from out of town! Now think about how many of those guests will be staying in a hotel. It’s probably a decent number right? And even though you’ve been kind enough to secure a discounted room rate at a fabulous hotel, it might also be nice to consider distributing the infamous hospitality bag!

This handy dandy hospitality bag/box is a great way to make your guests feel at right home, no matter how many miles they’ve traveled to be with you! Checking into a hotel room after a long trip and being handed a nicely made goodie bag is a great feeling!

The Rise of the Photobooth

by Ashley in General | Weddings on July 18, 2010

Camera Film The Rise of the PhotoboothUntil a few years ago, if someone had suggested you have a photobooth at your wedding reception, you probably would have laughed right in their face. And yet here we stand just a few years later where a photobooth has actually become quite a staple for all wedding receptions. With the increase in number of companies offering the service, a slew of new ideas on props for the booths and well just a crazy amount of fun, the photobooth has started to take over the wedding reception world! If it hasn’t in your town yet…just wait, it’ll be there soon, which means you have reason to be excited!

Ashley & Robin October 10, 2009

by Ashley in Recent Events on January 10, 2010

Lafayette Park UMC Ashley & Robin October 10, 2009Dishy owner and event planner, Ashley, spent nearly two years planning her perfect wedding to her best friend Robin. Admittedly avid Cardinal fans, Ashley and Robin knew the theme of their wedding had to be baseball and the color red had to play a major role, so they set out to create the most amazing baseball celebration ever! The Westin – St. Louis provided the perfect reception setting, a modern themed ballroom and a location to die for – right next to Cardinals’ Busch Stadium! Lafayette Park United Methodist Church, nestled at the corner of Lafayette Park, provided the traditional touch they were seeking. Check out some of the fantastic pictures from their special day!
