Mike proposed aboard my families boat, using code flags that spelled “Marry Me”. It only took me a few seconds to figure out what it said, at which point I started crying and was overwhelmed with joy. We decided to get married on the coast of Maine where I grew up, and where Mike spent summers. Our wedding day was perfect. The weather was beautiful and the setting was pristine. We were married on the waters edge, where a tented reception followed. Dancing started well before sunset, and continued through the night to the wee hours of the morning!

Brydon wore Tara Keely style 2308 purchased from Flair in Boston, MA.

Brandon and I were very specific with our wedding priorities: we wanted it to be beautiful, casual, and most of all – fun. We got married in the desert of Las Vegas and embraced the natural beauty with a Mexican theme complete with sangria, mariachi bands, papel picado, and maracas!

Our love story is that of pure serendipity. Chris and I met by chance, as a friend of mine met him one evening and said “you must meet my friend, Raven, I think you both would be great together! We met, fell in love, got engaged on a trip to Paris and ended up getting married at The Foundry in Long Island City in the most romantic setting surrounded by our closest friends and family. We had a whimsical outdoor reception overlooking the city skyline over sunset- it was magical!

We were married on a beautiful day in June at a forest preserve in Libertyville, Illinois. It was so amazing getting to see everything come together after a year and a half of planning. One of the best moments of my day was after I was all done getting ready was the reaction on Joey’s face when I saw him for our first look before the ceremony. My dress fit in perfectly with the romantic and rustic vibe that the nature preserve gave. My bridesmaids wore a Jim Hjelm Occasions bridesmaids dress that tied everything together perfectly!
