High school sweethearts Katie + Charlie played up their beach wedding with white and green accents and lots of raffia! Even grandpa dressed the part in a fresh green and white seersucker suit! Katie was beautiful and refined in a Candice’s Bridal dress, Kelly & Katie shoes and La Mariee accessories. She chose to wrap her bouquet with a piece of her mother’s veil, opting for a new birdcage veil for her own wedding day , which I think is the perfect way to incorporate tradition into a wedding without sacrificing your own style. Clary Photo did a wonderful job capturing the calm and cool ceremony at Roser Memorial Community Church. Come back for Part II to see more!
How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We were high school sweethearts.
Describe the proposal. It was on a fall Saturday morning in Central Park. It included a surprise photographer who captured the proposal.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: White, green, rustic.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: We had baskets filled with flowers that were used as decorations at the reception site.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I was lucky enough to be able to shop along with my mom and sister for my dress. It was very special because my sister is also engaged, so we tried on dresses together!
Describe your wedding flowers: We had simple white flowers including tulips, ranunculus, lisianthus, and baby’s breath with green berry accents. My bouquet featured a piece of my mother’s veil that we wrapped around the stems. It was my “something old”. The bridesmaids’ bouquets were tied with raffia.
