LYNNSEY CHARTRAND & MICHAEL CHACKO
August 19, 2017
FROM LYNNSEY: Mike proposed on a trip
to Iceland. We had been camping around the country for 10 days when Mike finally popped the question in front of Gullfoss Waterfall, outside of Reykjavik. We didn’t have a specific palette for the wedding. We kept things fresh and eclectic by incorporating subtle undertones of white and blue, with pops of orangey-pink. The flowers were done by one of our closest friends, Vicki Surplice, and that made them extra special. We didn’t want anything to look overly coordinated, and she did a great job capturing the unscripted look we were aiming for. We were really set on
keeping our day super personal. With an unconventional wedding venue and the decision to not hire a wedding planner, we were somewhat nervous about how everything would turn out. But after arriving at the reception and seeing how great everything looked and how much fun everyone was having, we were really pleased with how harmonious everything ended up being. We chose “Lucky Man” by
Courtney John for the first dance. With the wedding taking place during the balmy days of late summer in a semi-open vintage garage that serves street food, we wanted something fun and casual that captured the summer vibe, and that song fit the bill.
