Wine Country Gardens in St. Charles County, Missouri provided the backdrop to Tracy and Kiff’s exuberant outdoor wedding. Tracy chose the Charlotte wedding gown, an elegant cowl neck silk crepe wedding dress by Trish Lee Bridal. She accessorized her gown with jewelry from the family. In Tracy's own words, “The ring was a custom rose gold setting using the diamond from his mother's ring - she passed away when Kiff was a teenager. His ring was custom made, using the gold from his mother's earrings and rings. Both are very special to us, and I know that he was happy to have a reminder of his mother with him everyday." The couple, who spent their first date looking for bald eagles, also brought the fun. Tracy matched her family jewels with a sparkling crystal bridal belt and hot pink satin heels while Kiff paired his tux with a bowtie made of feathers.
From the designer: Tracy is one of those women that makes a strong impression on you. She has hair the color of steel and a smile that will blind you. As we got to know each other better, I found out that Tracy works with Burmese refugees, which struck a chord with me since my family is from Burma. When Tracy came for her last gown fitting, she gave me a parting gift: a beautifully woven traditional blouse and sarong made by one of her Burmese students. I shared this with my mother and she was amazed and touched by Tracy's kindness. Tracy, I wish you and Kiff, a love everlasting and life full of joy.
