YAY!!!! It always makes me do a little happy dance when of my weddings is featured on a blog or in a magazine…and to see Kate & Arlen in BRIDES? WHOOP!!!!
From Brides: “For their August 22, 2015, wedding, they knew it would be in the North Country. Says Kate, “We fell in love when we first saw St. Matthew’s Chapel in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, as well as the Forest Society’s Rocks Estate. Everything was just perfect.”
The couple’s wedding was almost completely DIY, though they did such an amazing job with the details you probably won’t believe it! From arranging their own flowers to hand-crafting their birch candle holders, the wedding was truly a labor of love. “We really wanted to focus on our marriage over the wedding, and this was the perfect way to do it,” says the bride. From amazing consignment finds to skills you’d never imagine possible with Costco flowers, you have to see this gorgeous Northeast wedding, photographed by Rodeo & Co. Photography!”.
“The find of the century might be Kate’s Modern Trousseau wedding dress, a strapless ball skirt that she topped with a bustier and custom lace jacket. “The skirt, top, and jacket are all from The Bridal Garden, a non-profit in New York that sells donated, gently-used gowns and donates the proceeds to education for disadvantaged children,” says the bride.
She carried a lush bouquet of garden roses, seeded eucalyptus, thistles, and dusty miller — sourced from Costco and Fifty Flowers and arranged by the bride herself!
The finishing touch was Kate’s flowing veil, which belonged to her great-grandmother and was first worn at her wedding over 100 years ago in 1915.”
