A preppy downtown restaurant wedding by M Kay Photography


I’m so excited to wrap up this week with a wedding that is very special to our hearts! We’re sure you remember our bridal blogger Gina, who shared many a helpful wedding planning tip during her days in blogging with us? Well, today we’re featuring her wedding, which was an intimate, fun restaurant wedding in downtown Boise. Besides having a lot of wedding wisdom to share, Gina is also a freelance graphic designer who used her design skills to create fun touches like their wedding signage and monogram on favors.

Even more unique? Gina and Matt had a cocktail hour before their ceremony with guests, to make the rounds and give the entire event a fun, casual cocktail-party feel. With fun pops of green and navy, this is one unique wedding day photographed by M Kay Photography that you don’t want to miss!
