Morton Arboretum Wedding | Jason & Katie

Jason and Katie were married on a perfect day back in July. Their ceremony was sweet and intimate and fully encapsulated who they are.

What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Jason: When we got to kiss and be introduced as Mr. & Mrs. Fox!
Katie: It’s hard to pick just one. Favorites are seeing Jason for the first time that morning for first look photos and walking down the aisle to him with our closest family and friends looking on.

Is there anything you would have done differently?
I wish I wouldn’t have stressed so much about the music playlists. We hired a company that set up the sound system so we just had to plug in iPods with playlists. I was so worried the music wouldn’t be liked but in the end, no one seemed to pay attention as it was just in the background as everyone chatted.

Best piece of advice for brides and grooms?
Jason: Don’t sweat the small stuff!
Katie: I totally agree with Jason. Pick what’s most important to you and just go with the flow on the rest of it. Organization along the way while planning does pay off though. 🙂 Being on top of details and communicating those details clearly to our family and friends who were helping that day allowed me to minimize stressful decision making the day-of so I could just enjoy it!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We did a week-long west coast tour of San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. We love exploring new places!

Anything else you’d like to say about your wedding day?
We did exactly what was perfect for us. We kept it small (about 55 people) and had it in the morning with brunch following. It was beautiful and perfect for us, and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to share our marriage celebration with our family and friends!
