What is your inspiration when planning your wedding?
Sage Chapel is such a traditional and elegant ceremony site, so we wanted to carry that timeless feel throughout the wedding.
What are your wedding colors and/or themes?
Black bridesmaid dresses and tuxedos with white bouquets kept to the classic look. The Aurora Inn is such a beautiful venue that we didn’t need to do much there, but Stacy K Floral brought in a little color and movement to the reception centerpieces to give a more relaxed feel while still keeping it elegant.
Did you incorporate any fun themes/motifs or design elements?
Dario had a traditional black tux but chose to add some fun details like the colorful lining to keep our wedding from becoming too formal.
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Both of us graduated from Cornell and come from big Catholic families so it only made sense to have Kristin’s uncle, a priest, marry us at the chapel on the Cornell campus.
