Kathryn and Patrick were married this past May at Holy Cross in Worcester. Before the ceremony, Kathryn and Patrick got ready at the Beechwood Hotel. The guys rode over to Holy Cross in a trolley, as did the bridesmaids, while Kathryn and her parents rode in a vintage Rolls Royce.
The weather was touch and go and as Kathryn drove up to the church it started to rain. But with a positive spirit, as she walked up the steps of the church, the sun came out…I kid you NOT. Guest remarked that when the doors opened they saw Kathryn enter with a halo of sun bursting behind her. Plain and simple, it was magical. And yes, I got goosebumps as she walked down the 200 foot aisle of this enormous church with a big, beautiful smile upon her face!
Since the bride and groom didn’t see each other until the ceremony, the bridal party gathered for photos take by Ned Jackson immediately following the ceremony and before heading over to Worcester Country Club, home of the first held Ryder Cup, for their cocktail hour and reception. Their videography, by Chris Martel, documented the entire day and you can get a glimpse through the trailer below.
The cocktail hour was inside Worcester Country Club while the reception was held in a tent attached to the country club. The decor was simply set with ivory embroidered linens from Rentals Unlimited, chivari ballroom chairs from Tommy Wholesale, and floral design in varying shades of whites and greens by Danielson’s Flowers.
Kathryn and Patrick were so excited to celebrate with their family and friends and made sure their wedding celebration was a night to remember. With Eye to Eye rockin’ a packed dance floor all night, a cigar roller and a sausage cart on the patio for a late night snack, no detail was left unturned! The toast given by Patrick’s brothers was also something to remember. Guests (and me) were in stitches as they presented the most innovative, entertaining, hysterical, sing songy toast I’ve ever heard. Clearly this household of three brothers had to have been very entertaining place to grow up. They spoke a little and then the band started playing “Don’t Stop Believing” and they started belting out their own lyrics singing to Kathryn and Patrick. This was definitely a celebration for their friends and family to remember for a lifetime!
