Mackenzie & Patrick

by | Dec 16, 2022 | Real weddings

There is something exceptional about weddings that use the beauty of nature as their backdrop. Newlyweds Mackenzie and Patrick skillfully incorporated the magic of the Lake Superior shoreline to create a complementary color scheme for their special day. The use of rustic colors, muted hues, fragrant florals and a touch of boho elegance created some of the most stunning outdoor photos. The Upper Peninsula of Marquette, Michigan never looked this romantic!

The bride, Mackenzie chose a figure-enhancing, floral baroque lace gown from our Elysee Bridal Collection. The lightly embroidered couture dress has delicate layers of soft tulle français and french chantilly lace. The floral, baroque lace continues to cascade into a dramatic, sculpted train which is perfect for memorable photos.

The groom, Patrick and all his groomsmen wore formalwear from Kathryn’s Bridal by Jim’s.   Their Sand Brunswick Suits by Allure Men is a fashion-forward choice and an ideal suit for this outdoor celebration.  It features a self-framed notch lapel, two bone buttons and matching ultra slim fit pants and vest. The groomsmen also wore ties and pocket squares in the color spice to coordinate with the bridesmaids. 

The mother of the groom was also in a gown from the evening wear selection at Kathryn’s Bridal. She wore a rich sapphire colored dress from designer Madeline Gardner’s MGNY Collection. This Scuba Jersey evening gown has bodice detailing and a peplum with cap sleeves and a high neckline on a fit and flare silhouette. Mothers of the Wedding always look fashionable and chic in a dress from Kathryn’s.

“We had such a fantastic experience with Kathryn’s Bridal! I was able to try on and choose from MANY different dress options, with so much support and love. They made me feel absolutely beautiful in my dress and ensured I felt comfortable on our big day. My husband had many different colors and fabrics to choose from and loved the comfort and fit of his suit. We loved having Kathryn’s Bridal as part of our wedding journey and would do it over and over again! Thank you for the help, support, and guidance throughout our wedding planning, you made it easier for us!” ~ real bride Mackenzie
