About The Wedding
Emily is the daughter of one of my mom's good friends, so I was super excited to work with them to plan her wedding. Emily and Chris met in Australia while she was there studying (he's Australian), and after much work to get his visa situated, he moved here to the U.S. to be with her. Quite fittingly, they chose a travel theme, and Emily went all out with the cute details! From the maps wrapped around her shoe insoles, to the luggage tag favors, she thought of everything (and bought out Etsy in the process). It was a perfect spring evening (despite our famous pollen), which was a relief since the ceremony and much of the reception was outdoors. Emily's neutral palette of ivories and blush tones blended perfectly with the map and globe accents. After several heartfelt speeches and some delicious cake, guests danced the night away and then sent the happy couple off to their next adventure (a year in Louisville as Emily begins her medical residency).

My Favorite Detail
The groom's cake was made to look like an Australian football field, and we displayed it on a stack of vintage luggage. Next to the cake was an actual Australian football (Chris's sister brought it with her for the wedding), which at first looked like a prop, but was actually used to launch the garter to the waiting single guys.

My Favorite Moment
Emily's dad is sweet and sentimental, and he had contacted me a few months out to arrange a surprise song and speech at the beginning of the dancing. The sweet twist? The song was to be dedicated to his wife! I love those sweet moments and expressions of love.

Comments From The Couple
"I honestly could not be any happier with the way my wedding day turned out! It was a beautiful day, with glorious weather, and everyone seemed to have such a great time. It was everything I have dreamed of and could have hoped for, and the majority of that is thanks to you! Can't thank you enough for making my special day truly magical!" ~ Emily (bride)
