Real wedding: Melinda + Chris

Melinda & Chris’s relationship started with a date at Freeman’s, so its fitting that their marriage should start there as well!


Photographer: Michael Gross

After researching photographers, we found Michael’s website and saw that he not only took beautiful wedding photos, but also he took gorgeous still life images. His wedding shoots seemed to capture the particular feeling of the event, and that is when we decided that he was the photographer for us. We were so lucky to find someone to capture the beauty of our day, and he definitely delivered photos that bring us back to each moment of the day.

Makeup: Ashley Rike

We were very lucky to get Ashley! She is represented by Agency Gerard, and I called three weeks before the wedding hoping that she wasn’t booked. We never had a test run, but she made me look exactly (actually better) than I had wanted! She was such a pleasure to spend time with during the day!

Flowers: Jasmine’s Floral Design

We always use this small florist a few blocks away for weekly home arrangements. They always have beautiful blooms and their prices are fantastic. For our wedding, I wanted to keep it simple with varying arrangements of white roses. I ordered 12 dozen a week before the wedding and requested that they all be fully bloomed, which they were when they arrived at Freemans!

Venue: Freemans Restaurant
Paper Goods: Lion in the Sun
Clothing: Bride- Jason Wu gown, Groom- Tuxedo made at Bhambis Custom Tailors
