Margaret and Katie both grew up spending time at the beach with their families, so to properly tell their story, it was only fitting to have their wedding on Cape Cod, filled with details such as sea glass and Adirondack chairs.
Their faith-based ceremony was held at an old stone Episcopal church that they attend when in town. “Our Christian faith is very important to both of us,” says the brides. “Our officiant was involved with the Episcopal church as they became gay-affirming and he was able to talk personally about the history of that change during our ceremony which was quite moving.” They also included a sand ceremony combining the sand of the beaches they each went to as children and poured them into a heart-shaped vase.
For the reception, KG Events & Design seamlessly fused their love of the ocean with their Italian (Katie) and Chinese (Margaret) roots. The reception was held under a sailcloth tent in Katie's parents' backyard, that beautifully twinkled as the sun dipped below the horizon. Sea glass escort cards directed people to their tables that were overflowing with gorgeous blooms. Their menu choices boasted delicious fare from both brides' heritage countries, and the cake was topped with the traditional Chinese wedding symbol for double happiness. “Luckily we had Kristen and Megan from KG Events & Design, our amazing wedding planners helping us. We could not have planned the wedding without them. They were super organized and detail oriented and made sure everything that needed to happen, happened. They also have a great eye for design so they made everything look amazing!”
