I’ve been waiting on for this Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion wedding for more than two years, now, and Kayla and Henry waited even longer than that. Last year, at the start of the pandemic, these two were faced with the difficult decision of what to do for their dream celebrations and ultimately made the difficult decision to delay their wedding. What was born out of that, though, will always be one of my favorite elopements forever and always. In choosing to keep their original wedding date to elope picnic-style at Coxhall Gardens, they celebrated with their wedding party and family alongside some of the most beautifully though out details to keep guests comfortable and safe during the start of COVID.
Their wedding was pushed back to May of this year and came together at the most perfect time and the wait was well worth it… especially if you were there and heard Henry’s speech toasting Kayla and all her hard work (and Henry’s choice of chairs… which were notably missing from the reception decor). 😂
Kayla designed every little detail of the day with the utmost care (and style, might I add) and the end result was truly impressive. And even though we got rained out last minute of their Coxhall Garden Paladium ceremony, we didn’t miss a beat moving over to the Ritz Charles Chapel. It even felt fitting, having already celebrated them at Coxhall last year, giving them the best of everything their venue(s) had to offer.
To Kayla and Henry, happy one year elopement anniversary and one month wedding anniversary. May you always have as much to celebrate as you have over the past year. Congratulations!
