Annie & Chris: An Elegant Garden Affair

by Katie Carlson

So, I know I’m appallingly late on this- between another baby, moving, job changes and just crazy life in general, my wedding posts have gone sadly by the wayside.  Well, no more- I am attempting to catch up now before my busy season really hits!

It’s almost been a year since Annie and Chris’s beautiful September wedding at Boerner Botanical Gardens, and the weather today reminds me of that day- sunny, not too breezy, and not too warm or cold- perfect in every way.  Annie was the second Lauer daughter that I had the privilege of working with in a year’s time- a very busy period for the Lauer family!

Annie and Chris were so sweet and calm and joyous about their big day throughout the whole process, and you could feel their joy in getting to marry each other permeate every part of the day.  After a heartfelt and lovely mass at St. Mary’s Visitation Parish, the party moved over to Boerner with the fabulous Bartolotta’s team, where a festive late summer evening took hold.  Special touches abounded, from garden games for the guests to play, to wedding pictures of the B&G’s parents, to personalized table numbers with stories about the couple’s relationship together.

The gorgeous colorful flowers from Bloom Floral & Event Design, the simply elegant cake from Delicately Delicious, and the warm up-lighting from A Personal Touch, LLC helped to create a romantic evening, much like love on a late-summer evening.  A special thank-you to Ren Davis from Studio 29 Photography for the gorgeous photos you see below!

Annie and Chris made for a beautiful couple that day- and of course, Annie made for a gorgeous bride- and their wedding was a perfect example of simple elegance and family togetherness.
