Good friends find your keys for you. A best friend finds your future husband for you! That’s what Caroline did for Kathleen, by creating a Match.com account for her bestie…and finding Nick. Although Kathleen wasn’t keen on meeting anyone online, she promised Caroline that she would meet her friend’s boyfriend-material pick, but she couldn’t have known that she and her Match match would end up talking for hours on their first date, until the restaurant shut down, and eventually become an inseparable couple. Fast forward to Kathleen and Nick’s classic-with-a-modern-twist tent wedding, where 210 of their loved ones gathered to witness them tie the knot, then danced the night away beneath a bountiful floral chandelier. Their palette of blush, pink, white and yellow brought to life their vision of a springtime garden wedding, while late-night favors of Whataburger honey-chicken biscuits brought nourishment to guests upon their departure. Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the lovely photos!

Rachel and Zach were married on her parent’s anniversary at The Gallery, so they incorporated different elements that gave little nods to that blessed event, and to her Louisiana roots. “I wore my mom’s veil, and Café Natalie created a menu that was full of Cajun cuisine with crab-stuffed mushrooms and blackened Cajun fish with dirty rice,” she adds.
“I wanted our wedding to feel soft, intimate, slightly vintage and romantic,” says the bride, pointing to elements including lace, mercury glass, candles and soft spring colors like fuchsia, lavender and peach.
“Some of my favorite moments were making eye contact with my teary-eyed groom at the end of the aisle, our first dance, toasting to my parent’s 34th anniversary and dancing to Pharrell’s song ‘Happy,’” says Rachel.
Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
