Highlights of the day
Our first gifts to each other … jumping the broom … forgetting to exchange rings and having to do it again (fun) … surprise serenade by me to my husband (Make You Feel My Love) with our band–Search Party … and of course, our sparkler exit into my husband’s uncle’s Cadillac.

Vendor Shout Outs

Thank you Todd for giving us our day just as we remembered it: PERFECT. You were above and beyond our best investment and we look forward to loving your photos for years to come.

Edison Chae and the Madison Floral team were impeccable and gave us the most romantic flower arrangements for our day.

Wedding Coordinator
Willowdale Estate was our castle, but our wedding coordinator Nichole, was our fairy godmother. She had everything under tight control and we had a perfect day because of it.

“Search Party” gave us music and song during our ceremony and reception that moved everyone into tears or onto the dance floor all night. AMAZING music!!!

Our Photo-booth guys & lighting experts:
Snaparazzi, and Boston Uplights {our lighting experts}were absolute professionals and gave us great entertainment and atmosphere.

MagnetStreet Weddings
We loved MagnetStreet’s ability to let us personalize our own cards and help set and maintain the tone of the wedding from beginning to end.

  1. Awww, that’s so sweet that Chandra serenaded Mac with a song….and I love those cake toppers! So adorable.

    I am also part of an interracial relationship, so it’s fun/inspiring to see love stories like Chandra and Mac’s. Congratulations to the beautiful couple! Happy Loving Day, too. 🙂
