Real Weddings: Carisa + John


Carisa and John’s sweetly elegant wedding was filled with history. Their ceremony took place at a family church where great-grandparents were parishioners (and the groom’s grandparents were married) and the reception was held at the oldest country club in the US; a beautiful place where the groom spent a lot of time during his childhood. The couple infused some more casual elements wherever possible though, keeping it relaxed for guests. Table & Tulip did a phenomenal job with the flowers, I love how they placed different arrangements on the mantles in the club and I can’t stop staring at Carisa’s bouquet! All of the gorgeous images were captured by Deborah Zoe Photography.


The engagement ring was designed by the groom and his mother using the gold and 3 diamonds from a pin that was given to her by the groom’s great-grandmother on his mother and father’s wedding day. I’m in love with it.
