Alice McGee Coulter and Jonathan Robert Benner met in middle school, and their young love blossomed through the years. Jon popped the question at a party Alice planned to celebrate his graduation from business school, in front of all their friends and family. “I did it in front of all of them, sobbing like a baby,” Jon recalls. “The best part is she planned her own engagement party and didn’t know it.”

Alice and Jon were joined in marriage on May 25 at Our Lady of the Pillar in St. Louis. The bride wore Mikimoto pearls bequeathed to her by the groom’s grandmother. The couple consciously sought out local vendors and small businesses to plan their wedding. “My husband is very entrepreneurial and we both believe in supporting our community,” Alice explained. A family friend designed a custom logo for all their print materials, which has become the couple’s brand.

The couple’s family and friends danced the night away at a reception held at SqWires in Lafayette Square.

The newlyweds honeymooned in the Dominican Republic, an adventure that Alice described as “never a dull moment.” Alice is a financial representative at Alvery Bartlett Group, and Jon is a financial representative at Northwestern Mutual. The couple resides in Creve Coeur.

The bride is the daughter of Con Curran Coulter and Joan A. Coulter of St. Louis, Mo. She is the granddaughter of Margaret Amendola of St. Louis, Mo. The groom is the son of Robert T. Benner and Leonmarie Stretch Benner of St. Louis, Mo. He is the grandson of Dr. Jack Stretch of St. Louis, Mo. and Marilee Milroy of Northpoint, Mich.
