Lauren Diffey and Steihl Reeves wed in effortless style at the historic Durham Museum in Omaha. Steihl’s love of history, plus the art deco venue’s grand architecture and luxe details, clinched their decision. Their hues of dusty blue and navy popped against the venue’s neutral backdrop. As her “something blue,” cloth from Steihl’s great-grandmother’s dress was tied around Lauren’s bouquet, which also included blue thistle to go with their colors. The anticipation of the first look with the groom was a standout moment for Lauren. “I was so nervous and excited to see him,” she says. Steihl accessorized with his great-grandfather’s pocket watch and handkerchief and his grandfather’s cufflinks. His favorite part of the day? Watching his breathtaking bride walk down the aisle among family and friends. The venue was filled with a timeless mix of hydrangeas, peonies and roses, while orchids, the groom’s pick, were present in the bridal bouquet and boutonniere. Guests could roam through the galleries during cocktail hour or opt for a sundae from the soda fountain and candy shop at the Durham. As a nightcap, newlyweds cut into one of four cakes which was topped with their new honorifics of Mr. & Mrs. Reeves.
