Real Wedding: Kim + Emil: Take Me to the Ball Game!

November 21st, 2013 in real wedding

In January of this year, Kim contacted me to discuss her upcoming wedding in June.  She had me sold at “the reception is going to be at National’s Park baseball stadium!”  This was such a unique selection for a wedding reception, I was thrilled to be asked to plan this wedding.    It brings me so much joy when couples make their wedding a true reflection of their personalities.  Kim and Emil were such a joy to work with.  Kim was hands down the most laid back bride that I have ever met!  When I started working with Kim, the only items that had been decided with the venues and dresses, so I had my work cut out for me.  I think that it turned out absolutely stunning.

Check out these goregous photos from Connor Studios.
