Today’s featured couple is Jill & Danny. I met Jill through a board we serve on in St. Louis and she is a complete rock star. She’s one of my mentors, and when she asked me to help out with her big day, I was beyond flattered. Jill plans events for a living, so the bar was set pretty high. I knew she would be her typical organized self and have every detail organized. She just needed me to tie up any loose ends (there were hardly any), and make sure things ran smoothly for her wedding day. I know I sound like a broken record when I say that my clients are the most appreciative & thoughtful people, but it just keeps happening over & over again, and these two were no exception. Jill & Danny both took every opportunity to say thank you and were beaming all day, just as it should be! To get you familiar, let me introduce you to this fabulous couple with a look at their “Love Story” which played for all guests before the reception. Macy & Jeremy of Rue Da La Vie captured the story of how these two matched up and fell in love. This was such a creative idea to engage their guests so no matter if you were a friend of the bride or groom, you got to know them as a couple and what their love is all about. The day started off with hair and make-up before Jill would be ready for her first look with Danny at Union Station in downtown St. Louis. Jonathan Pollack was there to capture all of the gorgeousness. Hello, flawless:
And a sweet moment in the archway right before Danny sees his bride for the first time.

Jill & Danny were married at the Hilton Frontenac and it’s always such a breeze with professional staff like those at the Hilton. Ruth Ellen Hasser officiated the ceremony which took from both Irish traditions, such as “tying the knot”, as well as classic Jewish flare. Mazel Tov, a chuppah, and broken glass, anyone? I’d never seen anyone physically “tie the knot” before!
Plenty of thought went into this wedding which was complete with a memory table and a candy bar. The menu was entirely Gluten Free to accommodate the bride. New Day Gluten Free provided all the sweet treats sans wheat, and they were to die for!
And a few more of my favorite shots from the day! Thanks again to J. Pollack Photography for the pictures.
Jill’s parting advice: Marry someone who makes you laugh every single day! Nailed it!
Cheers to many more years of love & laughter, Jill & Danny! Thanks for allowing Eminence Events to coordinate your wedding day! xoxo-
