The program was 2 sided – the front had the schedule for the day on it.  Since there were quite a few locations involved for all the different sections of the day we wanted people to have a heads up on when things would be taking place and where.  The back included the traditional program details with a thank you from us.

Kathryn & Justin in Pomfret, CT

Justin proposed during a walk around Castle Island in South Boston. "It was a pretty nasty day out -- cold and rainy, but I said yes to the walk," said Kathryn. "When we were about half-way around the loop Justin popped the question."

The Bride: Kathryn Wenzel, 29, small business owner
The Groom: Justin Shepard, 31, software sales
The Date: June 2012

Kathryn and Justin planned their wedding with a rustic romantic theme in mind. The color pallet was inspired by peacock feathers, consisting of blue and lime green.
