The Proposal

Matt and Katie met post-college while living in New York City. In the midst of a three-year courtship, on an early September afternoon with blue skies and perfect weather, Matt informed Katie they were going on a “cocktail day cruise” around Manhattan with friends. They packed coolers and met their friends at the harbor in Battery Park City where they boarded a super cute Hinkley boat, stocked with cocktails and snacks, and cruised up and down the Hudson for a fun-filled afternoon. Before returning to the harbor, the captain steered the boat in front of Lady Liberty for photo ops. Just as Matt and Katie got into position for their photo, Matt got down on one knee and proposed, while their friends captured the milestone event.

In Preparation

Matt and Katie’s first wedding day in June 2020 was delayed due to COVID. With a guest list of 500, their wedding planner Mariée Ami and her team managed the difficult task of rescheduling the event. Katie envisioned an extravagant Black tie Southern affair featuring white dinner jackets, blush pink bridesmaid dresses, pearls, white and green florals, and an abundance of candles. Matt is from NYC, and Katie wanted to showcase Chattanooga in the best way possible to their out-of-town guests who had never traveled to Tennessee before. Welcome Boxes were a priority and featured the same watercolor crest designed for their save the dates. Contents included custom door hangers, mini Tennessee whiskey bottles, a custom map of Chattanooga, and a Tennessee-shaped cookie with a heart on Chattanooga. Katie’s favorite item, a play on her name, was a bag of goldfish and Swedish fish with stickers that said “O-fish-ally not Kfish! Thanks for partying with us!”

The Big Day

Katie hosted her bridesmaids at her parents’ home on their wedding day. Matt and his groomsmen got ready at the Golf Club, where Matt gifted them custom golf clubs hand-painted with the couple’s wedding date and their initials. The ceremony began at 6:30 with the lovely sounds of organ music. Despite a big thunderstorm that appeared during mid-ceremony, the service was lovely, making the church darker but enhancing the stained glass windows. A DOUBLE RAINBOW appeared as everyone exited the church as the clouds cleared. Fortunately, Ami’s team had anticipated rain and provided customized golf umbrellas for the guests. As attendees entered the reception, they were greeted by personalized touches such as a flower arrangement in a stone birdbath with a sizable neon sign featuring their name and a Statue of Liberty with a real lit torch, and a chocolate groom’s cake. Other memorable touches included handwritten decal stickers on the restroom mirrors, confetti cannons on the dance floor, and a late-night snack from Krystals. The bride changed into a custom sequin gown by Dallas designer Michael Faircloth before the grand finale of the evening: a festive sparkler exit.

The Retreat

Katie and Matt initially planned a trip to the Seychelles but COVID-19 put those plans on hold as did the Omicron variant. The newlyweds are hoping to finally go on their dream honeymoon during Summer 2022.
