This is one of those weddings that was really tough to narrow down the photos for the feature because there was just so much beauty and emotion in every image. Storybook flowers by McKenzie Powell, touching photos by Michele M. Waite, delicious family style dishes, a romantic garden setting… you’ll definitely want to check out the gallery for this one so you don’t miss a thing!

Jeri’s top was made from the same fabric as Amy’s dress.

Each bride walked down the aisle with her father.

Amy and Jeri’s advice to other brides? “Take some time after your wedding ceremony to share some quiet moments alone, just the two of you. The day happens so quickly, and you want to be able to treasure the true reason it is all happening.”

Dinner was served family style.



Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  We had just returned from living in London for a year, and were so inspired by all of the beautiful private gardens that we found throughout the city, and during our European travels. We wanted a place that echoed this feeling, and we wanted incredible food. The Corson Building was a perfect match in all regards.

What inspired you when you were planning?  Our inspiration was drawn from our European travels, and from the immense love we had for another. We wanted the day to feel as easy and connected as we feel in our relationship.

What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  Our favorite moments– One, we started the day with yoga on our rooftop deck, a private class led by our favorite yoga teacher, and those moments of calm and connectedness before the big day really helped us to stay grounded and present for one another throughout our day. Two, we received a surprise during the cake cutting when our dearest friend Doris brought out Amy’s favorite childhood dessert that she used to make for her when Amy was a little girl– homemade icing on club crackers!

Do you have any budget tips for other brides?  I would suggest making decisions based on what you want, not what you think other people want/expect you to have.

Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day?  Our day was sweet, perfectly calm, and full of joyous love – the best day of our lives.
