Emily and Nate | Goei Center Wedding

This was a amazingly fun wedding to be a part of! Emily and Nate are both incredibly cool people and they put on an lovely Goei Center wedding. The details of the day were personal , sweet and beautifully done. The special first look included a surprise serenade to the bride, not a dry eye in the house.  I LOVED their table cards and decor details. They had the ever awesome Cakabakery for their sweets table and the super duper amazing AB for the days music. And if all this wasn’t enough she stunned us all in her gorgeous BHLDN dress…it was magical. Can we do it again Emily and Nate?!?


This beautiful fur wrap was found the day before the wedding. It belongs to the Bride’s grandmother and matched her gown perfectly and was a welcome addition on the very chill snowy day. 002_goei-center-wedding 003_goei-center-wedding 004_goei-center-wedding 005_goei-center-wedding 006_goei-center-wedding 007_goei-center-wedding
