Kayla and Marc were married at 21c Museum Hotel Louisville, a contemporary art museum and hotel in the heart of the city.

This venue is SO cool and the ceremony couldn't have been more beautiful!

Following the ceremony, guests were treated to a fun, candle-filled reception at the museum.

We are loving the colors and different candle holders - such a beautiful and simple way to decorate your tables!

Kayla and Marc, who are expecting their first baby this Spring, decided to do something super fun during their reception - a gender reveal!

Yay! Girls are so fun - congrats to the parents-to-be!

So how did Kayla and Marc meet?

"We met by accidentally running into one another(literally) and then awkwardly stalking one another for a week until he worked up the courage to say hi. We’ve been best friends ever since."

Where did the proposal take place?

"At STK restaurant in Chicago. It was hilarious, because we had just eaten a few hours ago but he was insistent that we do dinner. I later learned that he planned for all my immediate family and friends to surprise me there just as he began to propose. I wasn’t hungry, and don’t recall eating – but that was by far the most amazing dinner of my life."

Did she know it was coming or was she surprised?

"I suspected something was up because my best friend MADE me get my nails done with her the day of“just like old times” – we had never gotten our nails done together. I just assumed she missed me."

That is so funny!

When it came time to start looking for her wedding gown, it took Kayla awhile to decide.

"I tried on over 75 dresses, which is rather embarrassing because I always preached that I would be the chill bride who didn’t go insane. I even looked at flights to Australia to check out local lines – yes, I became that girl."

How did she know her dress was the one?

"It was the first time I actually smiled in a dress."

Can you blame her? Her dress is perfection!

When it came time to plan her big day, Kayla had a love/hate relationship with the whole process.

"SO MUCH TO DO! However, getting to plan out every little detail with my mom was amazing. We shared tons of laughs and happy tears all the way up to our wedding day."

 Her least favorite part?

"Trying to convince my husband to care about the type of orchid, table linen, etc (LOL). These types of details just aren’t his thing and it drove me insane! In hindsight, I may have gone a bit overboard."

Men, am I right?

Finally, the wedding day had arrived. What was her favorite moment of the day?

"Exchanging vows, as sappy as that sounds."

Kayla has some words of wisdom for brides who are currently planning their wedding.

"Everything falls into place exactly as it should, and the little details really don’t matter. Go with the flow. If something seems like too much of a hassle- it is. Have as much fun as you possibly can and don’t stress the tiny details."

Thank you so much, Kayla and Marc! We are so happy for you and wish you so much joy and love in the future - especially with your little girl!
