Congratulations to the happy couple!!



A hearty Hip Hops congrats goes out to Ken and Steph Newbury of St. Peters, who got married on Sept. 8, surrounded by friends, family — and the groom’s favorite beers.

The day started with Newbury and his groomsmen posing for photos at a St. Charles watering hole. The ceremony appears to have been suds-free, but the beer theme continued at the reception.

Instead of using traditional table numbers, guests were given a beer coaster from one of 14 breweries near to the groom’s heart, directing them to their seats at the Schlafly table, or the O’Fallon table, or the Ferguson table, etc.

The couple stocked the reception bar with as many of those beers as they could get their hands on (despite Mr. Newbury’s fondness for Yuengling Lager, it’s not available in Missouri). “Please stop by the bar and try at least one of the specialty beers that are available for your enjoyment while we all celebrate here tonight,” the couple wrote in a note at the reception.

The guests had a blast, Newbury says, and he enjoyed being able to share with them his love of good beer.

Cheers to the happy couple.

And here’s hoping they don’t forget our invite to their first anniversary party — sounds like the Newburys know how to have a good time.
