Married on June 25, 2021 in a ceremony that took advantage of both the indoors and out at Chatham Station, Kaitlyn and Matt are a beautiful couple, and boy did they have an absolutely beautiful day.
While the bridal party prepared at the Mayton Inn nearby, the guys relaxed at the Bond Brother before arriving at Chatham to get ready themselves.
The First Look
Kaitlyn and Matt shared a first look at Chatham station, and Matt’s excitement was palpable. Kaitlyn’s gown was a stunner and the wait was worth it. Following the first look, the wedding party grabbed images and took advantage of the patio, the sunshine and our setting.
Immediate family also arrived for pre-ceremony photos, allowing Kaitlyn and Matt more time to take photos after the ceremony at the Page Walker House.
The vows took place indoors in front of our fan wall. Chatham’s herringbone backdrop was banked with gorgeous blooms that coordinated with the bridal bouquets. The ceremony itself included piano versions of songs the couple loved, and it was incredibly romantic.
The touching wedding ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour, where guests spilled onto the patio to enjoy hor d’oeuvres and signature drinks. Guest tables were set with beautiful linens, votive candles and tall floral arrangements. The couple also had custom match boxes with their names as guest favors.
Kaitlyn and Matt also made sure that guests had plated salad ready for them so the couple could share a first dance and get more photos. It allowed everyone time to relax and reconnect.
Their wedding cake was created by a family friend, but there was also a donut wall where everyone grabbed some sweetness in between toasts, dancing and the sit-down dinner. Later in the evening, Kaitlyn and Matt surprised everyone with a Bourbon Tasting Bar. It was a hit!
The final send-off was a beautiful sparkler exit that was even more dramatic thanks to the tent and market lights. After the couple shared a private last dance, their parents surprised Kaitlyn and Matt with a bike taxi/rickshaw ride back to their hotel. This wedding was a knock out. Congrats to you on your new chapter in life, Kaitlyn and Matt!
The newlyweds and Chatham Station are happy to share the vendor list.
