Chris + Cody's cherry blossom wedding at St. Regis Hotel
Band camp nerd meets Model UN nerd. They fall in love. And is it any wonder? Chris attended Navy Officer Candidate School before finding himself coordinating the humanitarian relief effort aboard an aircraft carrier floating off the coast of Haiti, and then eventually leaving sailor life behind for an assignment at the Pentagon. Meanwhile, Cody studied political science and health policy, and today directs communications at an HIV/AIDS organization. You have never met two such well-matched, caring, world-changing... nerds. On their first date (a birthday brunch), they shared a koi pond, a trampoline, and Game of Thrones. The rest, as they say, is history.
Cody + Chris are friends of my dear Allie + Dylan, and I first met them at Allie + Dylan's wedding in 2014. When they reached out last year after they'd gotten engaged, I was delighted! We'd only met that once, but Cody + Chris were so well-dressed at Allie + Dylan's wedding, I INSTANTLY remembered them. Over the past year, it's been an honor to get to know these two outstanding (and yes, ALWAYS IMPECCABLY DRESSED) men. From their gorgeous sunny Union Market engagement session with their lovely greyhound, Lexa, to the day in November we stopped everything to go to the courthouse for a marriage license, to their absolutely gorgeous, cherry-blossom-bedecked wedding day at the inimitable St. Regis Hotel, every moment I've spent with Cody + Chris has been not only stylish and fun, but full of meaning and emotion. I'm so excited to share this, my first wedding of 2017, and their special day, with the world.
