kristen + galen :: 3.12.11

kristen and galen were married on march 12, 2011, a gorgeous and warm spring day! wedding was at christ presbyterian church (where kristen and her family are longtime members), and reception was held at the war memorial downtown (as i'm sure you folks know by now, is one of our favorites!) thanks to the ever fabulous photographer mary rosenbaum for these gorgeous shots...

kristen's bouquet was absolutely stunning. martha really knocked this one out of the park!

the moms carried mussy tussys in silver vases with stands. it's a great keepsake- you can even have it engraved with the wedding date after it's all over!

bridesmaids in taupe silk tafetta with bouquets in shades of ivory and pastel- kristen loved blue hydrangeas and white roses
mary did such a great job with kristen and galen's portraits....of course it didn't hurt that kristen and galen are adorable, and kristen is a ballroom dancer- she had such grace, poise and movement all day

arrangement in the sanctuary with french tulips, hydrangeas, delphinium, stock, and cherry blossom branches:

on to the reception...did we mention kristen is a professional ballroom dancer? i think galen may have received some training too- definitely a "dancing with the stars" worthy first dance!

kristen loves jordan almonds, and also loves bird nests (they were incorporated throughout her stationery)- so we did a tablescape in the lobby that incorporated little "birds' nests" of jordan almonds:

more cherry blossom branches, locally sourced!

the main table arrangements were topiaries of roses and hydrangeas in ivory, blue and pink:

and, we couldn't let this blog post pass without mentioning the food. it. was. incredible. kristen winston did a great job, and boy oh boy, did mary rosenbaum do a great job of shooting the food!?! it is beautiful!

we packed hydrangeas around the base of the cake, and then the cake table itself had a petticoat...that's right people...we basically turned this table into scarlett o''s a great way to add some drama! the lace overlay was a vintage piece from kristen's family.

what a great night! and, to cap it all off, kristen let us know that she and galen are expecting their first child this fall!!!! many congrats to you both, and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.
