The Boylan Wedding | October 17, 2015 | Photography by: Kemper Mills Fant Photography
Mary and Chris met through the powers of their matchmaking friends. When Chris proposed, he went into her apartment while she was at work and decorated it with rose petals. Mary had had no idea what he’d been up to, so to say she was shocked when she arrived home was an understatement. That didn’t stop her from enthusiastically saying “Yes!” though.
Mary's favorite part of the wedding was seeing all their loved ones in the same place at the same time and getting to celebrate the day with them.
Instead of a wedding cake, Mary and Chris decided to serve a wedding pie and an assortment of mini desserts.
The theme for their wedding was an enchanted forest. They set the ceremony up under a large tree, using metallic gold and silver decorations with moss and wooden touches. Their flowers were lush green, with orange and purple accents. Around the bar they used logs, stumps, lanterns and candles to create an enchanting atmosphere. Another big hit were the gold animal place card holders and the drink stirrers.
Their favorite decoration though was the surprise chandelier from Mary’s mother and godmother. They had covered it in moss and wrapped it in grapevines, and they hung it from the tree the couple got married under.
