What was your favorite detail from your wedding day?
My veil. I worked with an incredible designer, Carole Kenney Designs, who took lace from my mother’s veil and sewed it onto a new piece of tulle that matched my dress. It was so fun to incorporate my mother’s veil into my day.

Any memorable moments from the reception?
We had a late night snack of quesadillas about an hour before the event ended. I remember turning around on the dance floor and seeing a couple of our good friends dancing with quesadillas in hand and offering Drew and I bites! Highly recommend a late night snack especially if you think there will be heavy drinking at the event!
What was the best part of your day?
Katie: Having all of our loved ones in one place and seeing them connect with each other and having a great time was incredible. I remember looking at the crowd throughout the night and just feeling SO grateful for the amazing people in our lives.
Drew: Opening the doors to welcome us into the reception to see all of our family and friends.
Any vendor(s) you'd like to rave about?
Farm to Table Catering were incredible to work with. They are a full service caterer and we didn’t have to lift a finger! The food was amazing and every guest had their dinner within 10 minutes! Something that was very important to use was that everyone would be able to eat together. It can be a bummer sometimes if some tables are done eating when others are just getting their food. Farm to Table heard our concerns here and delivered above and beyond service to make sure every guest had food and drinks quickly.
Reagan of Anything’s Possible Events was a day-of coordinator but she was so helpful for months before the wedding. She made absolutely sure the day went perfectly, and she coordinated very well with all the other vendors.
