Ely Comerio Anderson was living in Baton Rouge, La., and visiting her parents in St. Louis when she met Edward Patrick 'Ted' Thurmond on a blind date. The two hit it off right away and ended up closing the restaurant down at 1:00 a.m. The two were engaged at the Saint Louis Club after what Ely jokingly describes as “a series of deceptions.”

The wedding ceremony was held at Ladue Chapel, where the bride wore a bracelet that held charms both her mother and future mother-in-law had collected from special places throughout their marriages. The groom's mother also gave Ely his birth charm for the bracelet.

The reception, held at the Log Cabin Club, had several special touches--such as pie instead of cake served with Ted Drewes frozen custard. The entire weekend was filled with excitement and energy as the couples’ sets of friends from Baton Rouge and St. Louis were united.

The newlyweds honeymooned in British Columbia, Canada, where their itinerary was packed with adventure – hiking, zip-trekking through a rainforest, deep-sea fishing, fly-fishing, whale-watching and sea-kayaking. Ely is the director of client services at Taylor Porter Law Firm in Baton Rouge, La., and Ted is VP of operations at Archway Sales, Inc. in St. Louis.
