What adjectives best describe your wedding?
Warm, Rustic, Elegant
Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
The Chicory had the perfect combination of rustic elegance we were looking for. It was also important for us to have everything in one place for ease of planning with so many out of town guests (including the bride and groom). The Chicory did an amazing job and the food was great!
What was your favorite wedding purchase?
Probably our rings 🙂
What was your best wedding day memory?
Too many to pick a favorite! The send off at the end was pretty amazing and we loved getting to ride in pedicabs on the way to and from the ceremony. If we had to pick a favorite, I think it would be the ceremony itself. John Cromwell was the best officiant we could have imagined!
How did you incorporate your personalities into the wedding?
I pinned a charm of my deceased grandmothers into my dress. That was very meaningful. I feel like our personalities were incorporated by having John perform the ceremony. He really captured our relationship. Also, having Pink Fries Paperie make custom menus, programs and place cards allowed us to be part of the creative process.
What is your wedding song?
