Congratulations, Christian and Elizabeth! In one of our first weddings for 2023, Christian and Elizabeth were married at the always gorgeous Park Chateau Estate. It was wonderful to see both of them again after their warm beach engagement session! Christian and Elizabeth are high school sweethearts, after meeting their freshman year – thanks to Chris’s dad and Liz’s dance coach. On Elizabeth’s 30th birthday, Chris proposed – I know this wedding was along awaited joyful day for both of them!
Christian and Elizabeth were married in December during a private ceremony with their closest family and friends. It was quiet and intimate, exactly what they wanted. This February, they celebrated with all of their guests with a second ceremony and reception at Park Chateau Estate. I love this idea, because they really got the best of both worlds: the traditional aisle reveal on the day of the church ceremony and the first look experience on the day of the wedding! Despite already being married, the happiness and excitement that Christian and Elizabeth felt all day long was palpable. Their celebration at Park Chateau Estate was filled with classic details and a gorgeous color palette of ivory, navy, and pinks.
Throughout the day, Christian and Elizabeth truly prioritized their photos. Because of that, we were able to explore and make the most of the grounds around the estate. Even in the chilly February weather, Park Chateau is so beautiful! We didn’t just focus on spending time outside, though. The newlyweds also planned some cozy portraits in the library on the iconic staircase. We ended the night with sparklers, too, which was super fun for Christian and Elizabeth! This winter wedding at Park Chateau Estate was definitely a great way to start our wedding season. Congratulations, again, Christian and Elizabeth!
