Classic, elegant touches, bright pops of color, and an equestrian theme define today’s real wedding from Readyluck!
From the bride, Kathryn: “We first met at the Preakness Stakes during our college years. However, our relationship didn’t begin until years later at our friends’ wedding in Monkton, MD. That night, our best friends conspired to bring us together and very soon thereafter we were making frequent trips between NYC and D.C. to see each other. With an itch for a change and a newly justifiable reason, I packed up my life in D.C. to be Ben’s neighbor in the West Village of Manhattan. It wasn’t long after that Ben planned our engagement. On a September evening, Ben proposed in a quiet garden in our neighborhood and surprised me with dinner with both our families from Baltimore and Boston.
One year later, on September 21st, 2013, we were married in my hometown of Baltimore County at St. Thomas Church. Our tent reception was held at Green Spring Valley Hounds in Glyndon, MD, a fox-hunting club where I grew up riding horses. We both love the outdoors and wanted to share the beautiful Maryland countryside with our guests, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our wedding design was inspired by the fall season, equestrian setting, and our personality as a couple. We partnered with our talented wedding planner and vendor team to make our vision a reality. Our palette of bright fall colors; berry pink, grass green, and gold, accented the details, from the bridesmaid dresses to the flowers to the tablecloths and invitation suite. Our wedding day was filled with so much love and joy. It was an incredible experience shared with our closest friends and family. Southsides were served, the dance floor was packed, and we were married – it was a great success!”
