Bella Bride: Christie & Ryan Garko

Christie and Ryan Garko had a courtship that lasted over five years prior to their wedding day in December 2009. Their wedding was absolutely stunning with a clean and classic palette of white and ivory floral. The couple selected Perkins Chapel and The Four Seasons Resort for their special and elegant day. The bride planned from multiple states as the groom, Ryan is a Major League Baseball player.

Our gorgeous bride and some of her wedding party pre-ceremony. Mayra Rams-Sanabria and Sonia Trevino provided hair and make-up services for our beautiful wedding party. There were a lot of girls to do, actually a total of 8 bridesmaids and 1 Maton-of-Honor, but like the pros they are, they pulled it off with time to spare for last minute touch-ups.

The ceremony was beautiful at Perkins Chapel designed with white and ivory toned floral to compliment the simplicity of the chapel.

Christie wore a Vera Wang ivory gown accented with a lace bolero and a stunning belt from Warren Barron. She carried a stylish bouquet of all white, ivory, and champagne floral including fluttery peonies, lush hydrangeas, and fluffy garden roses. The bride told Lucy, "I want my bouquet BIG!" It was perfect for our beautiful bride.

The bridesmaid’s wore beautiful gun-metal gowns with jewel accents which were a wonderful backdrop for the all white and ivory toned floral bouquets. The bouquets were a combination of lush garden cabbage roses and hydrangeas.

The reception was designed with elegant floral arrangements at a variety of heights utilizing the wedding’s clean and classic palette of all white, ivory and champagne tones. The reception was accented with silver chandeliers, vases, and candelabras.

The couple added a personal and creative touch to their big day with Cracker Jack and Peanut wedding favors for the guests to represent the couple and Ryan’s career in baseball, which has played a very big role in their lives together. This idea was absolutely adorable!

Christie and Ryan’s wedding was so much fun and we adored this couple. It's actually disappointing sometimes when our bride's wedding day comes and goes, however, we know that we will remain in close contact with them . We were so happy to have been a part of their wedding day! We wish them the very best!
