Katie and Kevin were married in a traditional church ceremony at the Chapel of our Lady followed by a reception at the Golden Gate Club in San Francisco, Calif. on March 21. “It was actually the first (and only) place that Kevin and I looked at,” Katie said. “We walked into the Chapel of our Lady and immediately fell in love with the gorgeous beams above us and the stunning glass window behind the altar. It was where we wanted to get married without a doubt. After we toured the Golden Gate Club, with the amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge, we were completely sold.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with off-the-shoulder capped sleeves, accessorized with a finger-tip length veil in her loose half-up/half-down curls, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a white tie. “The way the chapel looked when the doors opened for me to walk down the aisle, seeing it packed with our loved ones, the bridal party all lined up in the front, and the smile on Kevin’s face made for an absolutely perfect moment,” she said. Following the intimate nuptials, guests traveled to the reception complete with buffet dinner stations like a Cheese and Nacho bar, tables decorated with chevron runners, and glass centerpieces filled with hydrangeas, greenery, and fiddle heads. The newlyweds’ favorite moment? “The speeches!” Katie said. “They were the perfect combination of touching memories, hilarious anecdotes, and well wishes. My dad’s in particular was supremely heartwarming.”
