I truly admire people who have the courage to do things according to their heart's vision, especially when that vision doesn't follow the path of tradition or popularity. Kate and Joe are two such people, and I consider it a huge blessing to be a part of their big day. They were quite deliberate in constructing a day that reflected their personalities and values, and their thoughtfulness made a day that was fun, meaningful, and inclusive of everyone in their network of loved ones.
Their wedding was held on a perfect Sunday morning at the end of April, when spring was just emerging with its many promises. The first part of the wedding took place amongst a kaleidoscope of colorful plants and flowers in the incomparable Sunken Garden Room at St. Paul's Como Conservatory. The intimate, colorful ceremony featured unique texts, activities, and a wonderful blend of humor and sweetness. Once the vows were complete, we all ventured over to Theodore Wirth Park, into the cozy chalet which was the perfect setting for the spring-themed reception. Brunch, group trivia, and board games set to a fun soundtrack set the stage for lots of relaxed, happy conversing amongst friends and family.
Kate and Joe are such special people, and their union is proof positive that love has the ability to bring people together who are absolutely meant for one another. These two will have a beautiful life together, full of fun activities, global travel, and a diverse and wonderful mosaic of friends and family. Again, I was so honored to be a part of their lovely day. Thank you so much, Kate and Joe!
