Il Mercato Courtyard Wedding | Katy + Blake

June 16, 2017

If you could sum up your wedding in one word, what would it be?
Elegant, Beautiful, and Happy

What was your favorite wedding detail?
We loved that Eleonore was involved, the flowers, and my bouquet

What was your best wedding day memory?
Dancing with our friends and walking back down the isle after we were married

How did you incorporate your personalities into your wedding?
We love to have fun, so we had a fun, dance filled night. We didn’t follow a lot of the traditional wedding steps (cutting cake, garter toss, bouquet toss) and we also included our dog in the celebration- wouldn’t have had it any other way!

What is your wedding song?
“Lovely Day” by Bill Withers
