Katie and Dylan were married in a dusk ceremony at Audubon Park, with a reception following at the Audubon Tea Room. Katie is probably the most relaxed and calm bride I have worked with. She was so sweet, and I knew the first time I met her that she would be able to truly enjoy her wedding day. I didn’t end up meeting Dylan until their wedding rehearsal. He showed up wearing a white tux with hearts all over it, calling himself the King of Hearts. I was wondering how Katie would react. When she showed up and saw him dressed like that, she just smiled and laughed! These two really are the perfect complement to each other, and seem to have so much fun together.
The ceremony was officiated by Katie’s childhood pastor, and I love when a couple is able to use an officiant that knows them and makes the ceremony personal. The couple was announced into the reception by two of Dylan’s cousins, which was another personal touch.
Everyone had a great time dancing all night in the courtyard behind the Tea Room. Towards the end of the night, Pizza Delicious delivered some pizzas, and that was a big hit. For their exit, Dylan had reserved an Uber Black. When the car didn’t show, despite me calling numerous times that night, I ordered them another Uber. Their second Uber arrived, and although I can’t remember the exact model, it was ridiculously tiny and not at all a wedding exit car. Katie and Dylan thought it was hilarious, and piled into the back of the car with a leftover box of Pizza Delicious. Katie’s mom told me it was perfectly unperfect, just the way they liked things! And their original Uber did show up, just as they were driving away!
Congratulations to Dylan and Katie!
