Katie & Chris
Thanks to Katie and Chris for sharing their gorgeous wedding at Proximity Hotel. The lovebirds met in high school marching band. He was a drummer, and she was in color guard. They were first introduced to the Proximity Hotel when Katie attended one of the hotel’s design meetings with her father and fell in love with the place. After visiting many venues, they decided upon the Proximity Hotel, because they felt it best fit them as a couple – young and contemporary. They approached the wedding planning process by thinking of a blank canvas, full of room and inspiration to design and create.
Truly an artistic family affair through and through, Katie uniquely designed many of the wedding’s design details, alongside her artist father Jeff Hurr. Their efforts ranged from hammered copper trees and handmade living grass trays, down to suspended yarn mobiles—all in a vibrant color scheme of green, ivory and black. Dad and daughter also collaborated on making around 300 yarn balls of varying colors and sizes, for table decorations, place settings and commemorative favors. They inflated specialty spherical balloons and hand-wrapped them in a cast of coarse yarn before popping all of the air out of them. Each of these special touches made for a magical and memorable day for all.
