Katharine’s gorgeous dress is the “Blakely” by Amsale, purchased on an epic trip to Kleinfeld. She paired Miss Blakely with the “Elke” shoes from Nina and a clutch from Davie & Chiyo. The ‘maids wore floor-length black gowns with gold and pearl jewelry from Erin McDermott, a gift from Katharine at the rehearsal dinner. They carried white bouquets arranged by SW’s Editor in Chief, Lara Casey (the lovely blooms came courtesy of wholesaler Fifty Flowers)! It’s safe to say that the inimitable Scoobie West surpassed everyone’s expectations, not only creating flawless updo’s and faces for everyone who asked, but keeping the getting-ready room light and nerve-free. Gorgeous images courtesy of Bryan Johnson of A Bryan Photo, who perfectly delivered on Katharine’s request for black and white images.
Our happy pair were married at The Memorial Church of Harvard University. The Boston String Quartet provided gorgeous music throughout the service. Wiregrass Weddings printed the simple, classic programs, emblazoned with Harvard’s seal. Katharine added a custom lace cathedral-length veil made by Chaviano Couture to her Amsale ensemble for the ceremony. The baby’s breath centerpieces Lara artfully arranged (with blooms from Fifty Flowers), and the candelabra and linens from Festive Occasions were all that were needed to set the Harvard Club of Boston off to its best advantage. Programs, escort cards, and table numbers were put together (for a great rate!) by 2bSquared on Etsy. I’m sure guests are still talking about the funfetti-esque cake, too, a special request from the groom that was masterfully executed by Montilio’s Bakery.
Reaction to the delicious Southern food at the reception: Taste so good it’ll make you wanna slap your momma!
