Rachael + Chris

by | Jul 25, 2023 | Real weddings

We’re thrilled to feature newlyweds Rachael and Chris.

The couple were married and celebrated their reception at the Starline Factory in Harvard, Illinois. Chris and Rachael’s wedding had a rustic, elegant theme, with a classic ceremony filled with advice and love for the couple. According to the bride, “The Starline Factory created an intimate setting and made the planning process smooth and simple.” 

The bride wore a customized gown named “Alistaire” from designer Maggie Sottero. The dress was personalized specifically for Rachael by adding a layer of sparkle tulle.  Additionally, the bride finished her romantic look with a coordinating veil from Kathryn’s private accessory collection.

“I loved my experience with Kathryn’s, I would always drive by Kathryn’s on the way to visit relatives and I knew that one day I would have to look there for my wedding dress. I worked with Lanna for the entire process and she was amazing. I highly recommend both Kathryn’s and Lanna,” real bride Rachael.
