Just Married: Katie + Eric, Part 1

When I think of Katie and Eric, this lyric comes to mind: "I've heard it said, that people come into our lives for a reason". These two are so special to me. We've become such great friends since we started planning for their wedding back in 2012, and I honestly can't imagine my life without these two. (Oh man - that sounds so heavy for a blog post.... But, it's the truth.) This beautiful bride and handsome groom have become part of my family and I absolutely adore them. I've been holding on to their stunning wedding photos because I wanted to be able to find the right words to introduce this wedding. You know how you meet a couple you just think, oh yeah - they're perfect for each other! That's Katie and Eric. Two peas in a pod - or to use a food reference that Eric would approve of, "they go together like eggs and bacon". Katie describe her favorite things as clean lines, Kate Spade-inspired, effortless simplicity, & patterns. So with these ideas and a beautiful color palette of navy, green and ivory, we designed one of my favorite weddings to date. I'm truly in love with the unique spin we created on such a classic color palette, and how this wedding can be described as many things - preppy, modern, classic... you name it! Working with Katie to plan for her big day was more than a joy. I'm so lucky to have incredible clients like these two that I now call friends.

Without further adieu, I'm just itching to share this gorgeous wedding with you today! There are just so many wonderful details that we created, I've had to split this wedding into two posts.
