Kathy and Brian and were married on November 5, 2016, at the Chicory. Kathy was one of the first full service planning brides I booked back in 2015, so after over a year of working together, it was really special to see these two get married! Kathy is one of the most genuine people I’ve had the chance to work with. She was very conscientious about the details, and always made each decision carefully; I loved helping guide her through the planning stages.
Early on Kathy made the decision to go with a blush and burgundy theme; we were all set to go with the flowers and she had picked out the bridesmaids’ dresses. One morning she called me saying she just didn’t think she could do that color palette and didn’t want to do blush bridesmaids’ dresses anymore. We made the decision to go with black bridesmaids’ dresses, and I’m so glad she made the change. I love how elegant her bridal party looked in their black attire with their bouquets tied up in silk ribbon. It was a refreshing change from all the blush we’d been seeing in wedding trends for that year. And Kathy was the perfect classic bride!
These ceremony pictures are some of my favorites. I love the way the light was shining in the window behind them as they said their vows; the sunset was timed perfectly.
Kathy and Brian decided not to do a first look. I almost always recommend that couples do a first look, because it saves you so much time after your ceremony taking photos. When you do a first look, you can get almost all the photos done ahead of time. However, they were adamant about not seeing each other before the ceremony, and it was the right choice for them!
