It only took us one look to fall in love with this whimsical, gardenesque corona wedding, not only because of all the lovely details, but because our go-to office manager and social coordinator, Maddy, is the gorgeous bride! Although COVID-19 forced Maddy and Chase to cut their guest list of 400 and to push their reception back several months to fit quarantine restrictions, nothing was going to stop them from having their floral-filled, pastel-colored, and overall simply beautiful intimate corona celebration. As Maddy said, “marrying Chase was really the only plan that mattered to me,” and it ended up being better than anything they could have intentionally planned.
“We really couldn’t have planned for a better wedding day for ourselves if we tried (and we did try).”
We are the biggest fans of Maddy and Chase, and we are way too excited to share all the stunning details of their day! Ever Something truly outdid themselves with all the beautiful florals in pastel shades of blue, pink and yellow, with lush greenery accents throughout. Perfectly arranged place settings from Party Pro Rents made for a picturesque setting on their one big, communal-style table, where guests enjoyed a homemade dinner from the mother of the bride. Their delicate wedding cake from Allie’s Baking Boutique and scrumptious cookies from Baked Cookie Co. ended the night on a perfectly sweet note. You can’t help but smile looking through their wedding gallery, as their love for one another is so infectious and radiant! Scroll to see all the whimsical and gardenesque details of their corona wedding day and to fall in love like we did. Cheers to Maddy and Chase!

From the bride: “We really couldn’t have planned for a better wedding day for ourselves if we tried (and we did try). I woke up in my childhood home, made breakfast with my mom, took a walk… It was a slow morning with the people I love most. COVID hadn’t changed many of our plans – other than cutting the guest list by about 400 people and pushing the reception back several months. When I read that back to myself it seems like maybe I should have been deterred or upset, but marrying Chase was really the only plan that mattered to me.
The girls got ready in my bedroom while the guys did their own thing – shooting clay pigeons and playing card games. Time seemed to fly between putting my dress on and walking down the aisle, but all of a sudden I was sitting with my dad, waiting to go outside and meet Chase under the floral arbor. The string quartet played ‘Beauty and the Beast’ as I walked. There was nothing distracting me from what we were doing and I remember every second of it – which I know isn’t the case for a lot of brides, so I cherish that. Afterward, we took a few pictures while the others started getting dinner ready – we had steak, potatoes, homemade rolls, brandied mushrooms… my mom is the best cook. We ate on the patio together at one big, beautifully set table and dined well past sunset. It was truly the perfect day that we never would have originally planned for ourselves!”
