Kate and Blaine had one of the most formal, and yet most relaxed weddings I’ve ever been to. It was black-tie, because as Blaine said, “we like to get dressed up.” And the self-proclaimed foodies chose an awesome meal they called a “European tasting menu.” At the reception, guests could chill on lounge furniture while soaking in the great jazz music, mingle around the cigar bar, or hit one of the gaming tables set up on the patio at Dresser Mansion. We had a blast when the wedding party loaded onto a trolley and headed Downtown for some photos. It was hilarious watching this dressy group go crazy in the street; Blaine in his tux and Kate in her Jimmy Choos. But my favorite part of the day was when Kate and Blaine read their vows that they’d written themselves. Rick and I always say we wish we’d written our own vows. It’s so sweet and touching… so personal and intimate: just like this wedding.
