Katie Ann Preston & Jason D Keck

Skyline Loft at The Bridgeport Art Center

The Couple: Although they were both taken when they met, Katie and Jason’s time eventually came, and they found themselves head over heels. After buying their first home together, Jason surprised Katie with a fairy-tale engagement, complete with rose petals and candles. 

The Details: Before the ceremony at the Skyline Loft, Jason surprised Katie again during their first look when he handed her a mysterious card with only a username and password on it. She later found out it was for a secret email account he had been writing to for over two years. “Some of the emails simple said how much he loved me,” she says, “or had a link to a song that reminded him of me.” 

The Party: Wedding planner Chrissy Magliano and the Big City Bride team transformed the industrial space into a fresh glowing reception area with a romantic palette of white, ivory and blush. After a dinner catered by Blue Plate, guests danced the night a way to songs from Larry King Orchestra and a DJ before indulging in Garrett’s popcorn and hazelnut cake. Then the couple dashed off to St. Lucia complete with private pool and butler service.
