Missy and Ricky were childhood sweethearts who promised to be together forever and, well, after thirteen years, here they are – getting married. Chatham Station had the honor of being the venue for their elegant and intimate wedding in May of last year.
These two made wonderful use of our space during the day. Guests arrived through the courtyard to be seated, and Missy was escorted in through one of the enormous bay doors and down the aisle leading her to the groom. The couple chose to be married against the brick wall, where they were bathed in natural light during their vows.
Before guests arrived, Missy and Ricky were able to slip away for a few moments with their photographer to capture beautiful garden images at nearby historic Page-Walker Hotel.
Details that made this ceremony special included a collection of images from the couple’s travels displayed for all to view, an artful acrylic welcome sign as guests arrived through the well-appointed courtyard entryway, and a particularly striking navy settee that the couple used at their table during toasts. There was also their color palette, greenery and decor – all thoughtfully selected for a spring ceremony. Navy, dusty blue, white, and cream were mixed with pale pinks and others florals from Sweet SaraBelle, including classic flowers and anemones. The outdoor decor was from Greenhouse Picker Sisters and guest tables were dressed with classic linens, decorative plates and an assortment of centerpieces, such as lanterns enveloped by wreaths of flowers and greenery.
A striking gold metal ceremony arbor doubled as backdrop for dessert table.
The Send Off
These two were celebrated until the last moment, and their goodbye was complete with a dip, pop streamers, and glorious cheers.
All the best to you both, Missy and Ricky. Here’s to your forever plan, in good health!
