November 5, 2022 // Christ Church Episcopal Cathedral, Reception at The Strikers’ Den and Carnival Museum

Phillippi and Jacob were married on a rainy November day made brighter by over 300 of their closest friends and family gathered to celebrate them. The former debutante in the 2017 MCA Court wore pearls (her favorite jewelry), with each piece being a gift she had received throughout her life. After the ceremony, the wedding party and attendees made their way to the reception, which featured exquisite flower arrangements and illuminated oak trees. After dinner and the cake cutting, the newlyweds shared an intimate dinner and danced in the rain to “At Last.” From there, the day-long rain shower subsided, and the party continued both inside and out, and into the night.
