Kate Hopkins Warihay (26 and a lawyer) and Will Warihay (30 and a lawyer) knew they would get married in Atlanta, Georgia, since it was important for them to get married in the church they attend together and have a reception venue with a view of the Atlanta skyline. The pair got both wishes on their wedding day, which began with a heartfelt ceremony took place at Westminster Presbyterian Church followed by a reception at Ventanas with a romantic backdrop of city lights. It Takes Two Events helped Kate and Will find their vendors and pull off their perfect day without a glitch, beautifully captured by Janet Howard Studio. Kate and Will wanted their wedding to be timeless for years to come, so they went with a palette of black, white and cream with light pinks, golds and champagne details—including polka-dot patterns wherever possible (Kate’s favorite detail, especially on the stationery). Another great detail? To add a personal touch, Kate and Will included photos and scrapbooks of their relationship on all the dining tables. And just so they didn’t miss a moment, they asked guests to download the app Capsule, so they could upload their own photos and share their experiences.

The metallic gold polka dots on these simple white escort cards were so pretty! Kate loved the polka-dot details throughout her wedding; they were a nice and subtle way to include some of her favorite warm colors into the palette.
