Kate and Eric: Courtyard wedding featured family heirlooms in every part of the day | Weddings

GAME DAY They married on a Husker bye weekend, which fell the day before what would have been her grandparents’ 50th anniversary. “Every Nebraska bride will understand the struggle in trying to have a fall wedding,” Kate says.

“From the moment we locked eyes, I knew we’d be archenemies,” says McKenzie, who met Spencer during high school in Baltimore. For years they wished their mutual friends would drop the other from the group, but eventually they started to see what those friends saw.

Show-goers wore face masks, as did Pierpaolo Piccioli while he waved arrivederci at the end of the Valentino show, and collections included 2020-appropriate items like face coverings at Marni and elbow-length rubber gloves at Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.
