Oh, I love this sweet couple. Abigail and Chris are so cute and just radiated joy and happiness all day, and both of their families were so fun. They were married on a spring day in April, on Earth Day in fact. This holiday influenced some of their color choices, with lots of blues and greens incorporated into their day. They held their entire event in the Gold Coast room at the historic Drake Hotel. Ashland and Addison Events and North Shore Weddings and Events transformed the ballroom created a dreamy, elegant space. I love that the couple chose to still keep touches of them throughout the day, including having their beloved pup, Guinness, walk down the aisle. Enjoy their wedding photos below!
