Real Wedding: Cade + Marco at The Stockroom at 230

Where to even begin on this wonderful couple!? Cade and Marco were the most amazing couple to work with. I always joked that Cade would answer your questions with 1 of 3 responses; Yes, No, I don't care. (That, hands down, was always her response!) As soon as they were engaged, they instantly booked their venue and called us within 24/36 hours! They had a 4 month engagement! The conversation was along the lines of "we don't really want to plan anything. We want it to be a fun time for our friends and family. Is this something you do?" Instantly I knew they were my type of people!

Cade knew exactly what she wanted aesthetically - simply elegant with white flowers! A huge desire from the couple was to dress up the entryway hallway of The Stockroom. After bouncing a few ideas around, we decided to have pictures of their family hanging with greenery, some uplighting (thanks to ThemeWorks) and candles. This completely wowed their guests, and with the help of Bushel + Peck we had the room/hallway looking stunning.

Another fun part of planning their wedding was the food! His family had more dietary restrictions than most so when it came to getting a catering company who makes mind blowing food with dietary needs in mind, Beau Catering was my go to! They absolutely blew it out of the water with this family style meal. Cade had two teenage boys that she said just continued to eat her out of house and home, and I think even they had full bellies that night! Surprisingly, their sugar free cake (by Cakes by Chloe) was amazing! Hair and Makeup was done by the fantastic duo of Jess Johnson and Karen Michelle Clark. Our lovely bride was not one who wore makeup often, and was always very true to herself!

The ceremony was about a total of 10 minutes from start to finish, and our groom absolutely loved it! Perry really customized exactly what the happy couple was looking for. Right after the ceremony, the reception started and Top Notch Entertainment had everyone up on the dance floor, and partied the night away. The drinks were flowing, the food was great, the desserts were sweet, and this fun couple was married! I really could keep going on about this wedding, as I absolutely loved Cade and Marco! They really were a one of a kind couple! I cannot thank them both enough for trusting me with that incredible responsibility to make their wedding perfect! I absolutely loved spending time with you both, and for letting me into your life for just a few months. Your no filter lifestyle is what dreams are made of! I hope you are enjoying your new home and life!

All the best, Catherine
