Christina and Chad’s Enchanted Garden Wedding

  • Dec 5, 2016

We are so in love with every detail about Christina and Chad’s garden wedding.  The color palette of their celebration as seen through the wedding photography of Nicole Clarey Photography is stunning!  With the backdrop of Ault Park Pavillion, their day was filled with love and laughter while being surrounded with their closest friends and family.  High school sweethearts, these two began as best friends and have now begun a new chapter in their love story.

From The Bride:

It’s so fitting our wedding is being featured this month, as it marks the 10th year we have been together. Chad and I are childhood sweethearts. We met when we were kids and were reintroduced again when I transferred schools in 7th grade.

Freshman year of high school we became good friends and one late evening he called me up before we both had cell phones and asked me to be his girlfriend. Ever since then we have become the best of friends.

Our venue really determined the date we got married. I fell in love with Ault Park Pavilion and it notoriously books up years in advance. They had a spot open on July 16th – which was just days after my birthday, my moms birthday. and my parents anniversary – It just felt right, so we went with it.

Our wedding was a collection of everything I love about the summertime. From the pale gray-blue summer skies, to the bright fresh greens, to dining alfresco under amber lights. It all seemed to come together organically with all these details in my mind. Marrying my sweetheart was just the icing on the cake… And I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
