Take My Hand, Take My Whole Life Too | Mary Kate and Charlie Say I Do

April 14, 2018 Real Weddings

Mary Kate and Charlie’s wedding at The Cadre was simply stunning. The ceremony and reception were decked out in breathtaking florals that tied perfectly into their wedding colors of gray, gold, and blush. Their wedding, rooted in family tradition, is one you do not want to miss. Read more about their big day from Mary Kate:

When did you know you were falling in love?

Charlie and I had been together for almost 7 years when we got married. We met and fell in love while attending Rhodes College in Memphis.

What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?

We chose Elvis Presley’s ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ for our first dance song. We chose this because we wanted a song that related to Memphis since our whole relationship has happened here.

Tell us about your grand exit!

We did the traditional sparklers since it was late at night and walked down the street to Hotel Napoleon.

How would you describe your big day in 3 words?

Exciting, Fun, and Special!

What was the most memorable moment?

My most memorable moment was when a gospel choir came out and started singing at the conclusion of the ceremony…neither I or Charlie had any idea that this was going to happen.

What traditions did you incorporate?

I wore a broach in my hair that had been gifted to Charlie’s mom by her father-in-law. I had pieces of my mother’s and grandmothers’ dresses sewn into the lining of my dress with blue thread. I wore my sister in law’s veil as my ‘something borrowed’. We cut our cake with the knife that my maternal grandparents’ used at their wedding, we toasted with goblets from my parents’ wedding, and I carried one of my great grandmother’s handkerchiefs.
