Today’s real wedding feature comes from Radian Photography and we are truly giddy to share this story! Love everything Radhika had to share with BSB about Katie and Adam’s giving back wedding story!
‘Katie and Adam met while at grad school at UPenn, and Ian got to know them both there as well. What started out as close friendship quickly evolved into a deep love for each other and helping the world as well. They clearly took so much time to not only build an intentional relationship, but also create an intentional celebration at their wedding to honor their love and lives and share that with friends and families.
‘Invitations from Vistaprint were printed on recycled paper to cut down on paper waste (there were also no RSVP cards – instead, guests were asked to call or e-mail in their RSVP).
‘Katie’s dress was vintage from an antique store, Cape May Antique Center, in Cape May, NJ. Somehow it fit perfectly and no alterations were needed. The best guess as to its age would be 1950s/60s. The diamond in Katie’s engagement ring is vintage as well – probably from the early 1900s/1910s. No blood diamonds there! The wedding bands were both from Etsy, and Katie’s is from Katie Carder Fine Jewelry, which donates a portion of profits ($2,000 in the last 3 years) to animal rescue organizations.’
‘The flowers in the bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets were local from Triple Tree Farms in Gap, PA and were assembled by the bride herself! Decorations included vintage Ball jars either passed down to us from family members or re-used from friends’ weddings. The growlers are part of Katie and Adam’s collection. Decorations (fans/chalkboards) were all re-used from friends’ weddings. Katie and Adam are donating tablecloths and table runners to Goodwill.’
