It's a beautiful Saturday morning, and I've got my fingers wrapped around a steaming cup of aromatic "perfect blend," an exclusive Lakota Coffee created JUST for guests in celebration of lindsay + andrew's wedding. ahhhh and yummmm!
why Lakota Coffee?! Andrew's family opened the "small batch coffee roastery" (yes! that means they roast their own coffee right there on site!) in 1992, back before there were national chain coffee shops on every corner. Lakota has been a 9th Street Columbia mainstay ever since.
so much was so wonderful about lindsay + andrew's wedding, including: a bride who radiated joyful calm; a groom whose face was full of emotion and love for his new bride all day long; a brother who played BEAUTIFUL guitar music during the ceremony; a father of the bride with the wildest cammo suit jacket ever to go along with a toast that had us all laughing so hard we were crying; friends who were as endearing as they were fun; a reception at the crowne plaza st. louis - clayton that included a live rendition of "be our guest" from disney's beauty and the beast by white-gloved waitstaff, and . . . the list goes on!
Ok, now here's your 3-item "to do" list: scroll through this blog post to see our favs, then check out the full day by clicking here to watch this slideshow AND THEN pop on into Lakota, treat yourself to a locally-roasted and brewed cup o' joe, and give andrew a big ole congratulatory howdy! ~ kim & annika
