I genuinely tried to make this post NOT over 100 photos. I even made some of them collages because there were some that just had to be included. Spoiler alert, it didn’t happen. The truth is, there really wouldn’t be a way to show you all just how much time, preparation, love, and care went into Katherine and Marc-André’s special day without sharing every single one of these photos. For the year I was planning alongside Katherine, we developed an incredible bond, she trusted my design direction, and put all faith in me and my team to pull it off. We teamed up with an amazing group of vendors and service providers to create the “gothic garden” wedding we had envisioned from the start.
If I even started to talk about how much I adore these two, this post would get even longer. But, I will say this. The love that these two share is amazing. You can feel it when you are around and I promise you will feel it as you scroll through their love story. Enjoy all the gorgeous pictures captured by Brooke Images Photography.

From the beginning, it was so important for us to plan a private dining table for our Bride and Groom. Right after the welcome toast, we whisked them away to this sweet setup with a gorgeous view of the rising moon. It was the perfect getaway for just a few minutes so they were sure to eat and have some downtime before they went back in to say hello to their guests.
I have never felt so close to a family, than I did the Fox family. When the sweet Father of the Bride, Al, walked up to give his toast, I took his seat next to his lovely wife. Little did I know what he had planned to start his speech off with. As soon as he took the mic, he looked to the crowd for me. He mentioned to his guests that without me, this wedding wouldn’t be what it was, and he was forever grateful for me not only for the smile that never left Katherine’s face, but for keeping his wife calm throughout the process. I genuinely teared up and started to cry when Katherine herself turned around and blew me a kiss.
