Christina + Matt wedding {by kate}

Christina and Matt got married on a rainy Saturday this Spring (one of MANY, amiright?!?) but they didn’t let a little rain ruin a beautiful day!  We began the day at the Chase Park Plaza.  I love the delicate pattern of this Lela Rose Dress and the soft color of the BHLDN shoes.

The room was stunning… teal uplighting, orchid balls, hanging glass orbs, original projected light designs, shiny linens….a great group of vendors artfully orchestrated by the talented and oh so organized Jenny Kehm Madras of Before I Do wedding planning.
