After a romantic proposal in New York City, Katherine and Andreas decided to marry near Orlando, where they currently reside. The bride wore a Vera Wang jacquard and silk organza gown and floor-length veil, both purchased from The Collection. "I've always loved the dress Jackie Kennedy wore the day she married John F. Kennedy, and this gown reminded me of that," Katherine says. The 3:30 p.m. ceremony was held at Knowles Memorial Chapel at Rollins College. Following the ceremony, guests traveled to a private club in Windermere for the reception. Escort cards were displayed near the entrance to the club, and the reception layout was beautifully calligraphed and illustrated on a mirror so guests could easily locate their seats. Reception tables, each named for a variety of flower, displayed tall pedestal-style arrangements of roses and hydrangeas adorned with crystals. For the wedding cake, Katherine gave Bake Me a Cake a sketch she'd drawn, and owner Mercedes Strachwsky brought the illustration to life. See more from this couple's wedding here.
