Kristin and Chad in New Canaan, CT

Kristin and Chad met as undergraduates at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. "Chad is from Kentucky, and since the South knows hospitality better than anywhere, we wanted to infuse our love of that region into the wedding," says Kristin. She wore an Ines Di Santo gown, which she was initially hesitant to try on. "I thought it might be too excessive, because we wanted the wedding to have a more relaxed feel," she says. "But it was actually perfect." Chad wore a tux and an oversize bow tie by Turnbull & Asser.
