The couple
After meeting on orientation weekend for law school at Washington University in St. Louis, Eric brought Elizabeth back to their alma mater to propose in one of their favorite parks.

The details
LOLA Event Productions perfected the details for the couple’s 190 guests. Eric and Elizabeth wrote their own vows to personalize the day.

The party
The couple added more personal touches by asking Entertaining Company to create their favorite desserts: gooey butter cookies, s’mores tacos and churros. Music from the nine-piece Ken Arlen Orchestra completed the celebration.
