Teaser Tuesday

Thank goodness for the rain's departure on Saturday afternoon for Greg and Andrea's wedding! The couple started their day at the Westin Mount Laurel. Gloss Salon was on hand to pamper the girls with hair and makeup. After hair and makeup was complete, the bride put on her beautiful dress, complete with pieces of Greg's mother's wedding dress sewn onto her dress. She also made herself a clutch using material from her mom's wedding gown! After everyone was dressed and ready, we headed to St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church where Father Joyce led the ceremony. They were announced husband and wife and then headed out for some great photos with Studio K Photography. Guests were so excited to see the new Mr. and Mrs. and showed their excitement by dancing all night long with the help of Illusions DJ. The ballroom was decorated with beautiful, tall white orchids by Leigh Florist, and we can't forget the yummy cake by Diane's La Patisserie! Overall the day was simply beautiful and included so many personal touches from the bride and groom. Congratulations Greg and Andrea! -Annemarie
Cate and Keith were married on Sunday with their closest friends and family in attendance, and even though it was a small guest list, it was a HUGE event and one of the most fun and beautiful that we've ever been a part of! Their photographer, Jennifer Childress, recommended our services to the couple when they were considering hosting a wedding in a barn on their property. The minute I got onsite and saw the space and met the couple, I knew it was a perfect match! Cate's a big Pinterest fan and wanted the wedding day to show off all the fun details she had been compiling on her wedding boards. We went with a rustic theme, complete with lots of burlap, lace, candlelight, vintage touches, great food, and organic floral designs. Our friends from Starr Events put together a delicious menu consisting of an amazing raw bar, seasonal salad, yummy entrees, and a dessert display of pies, cakes, and even a Coldstone Creamery sundae bar! Then, the AMAZING guys from Synergetic Sound and Lighting draped the barn in fabric and string  lights to create an unbelievable look! Our go-to gang for all vintage accessories, Maggpie Vintage Rentals, helped us select furniture and a bar for our vintage lounge, which looked beyond perfect in the space. Party Rental's farm and picnic tables were the perfect foundation for gorgeous floral design by Miss Fancy Plants, and we brought in a ton of rental items to fill in the centerpieces and decor. An intimate lakeside ceremony was conducted by Judge John Murray, and then following dinner, we were treated to a spectacular fireworks display, courtesy of the couple! Once the fireworks ended, the whole party moved into their tavern to cheer on the Eagles on their shut-out against the NY Giants! It was an unforgettable event with fantastic vendors and an awesome couple and I'm so honored we were a part of it. Congrats Cate and Keith! -Erin
Sunday was a wonderful day for Sara and Jared's wedding! Sara and her closest ladies started their day in a suite at the Omni Hotel with hair and makeup done by the staff at the hotel's salon. In between getting their hair and makeup they relaxed and enjoyed a catered breakfast. Sara then headed over to Hotel Monaco to get into her stunning lace gown. She wore a bolero during the ceremony and cocktail hour and then took it off for the reception- it was beautiful! Ron, from Faith West Photography, was on hand to capture their first look and the 2nd Bank Building and then headed out into the gardens for photos with their bridal party, while Damon, also from Faith West, captured all of the fun they had on video! Everyone then headed to the National Museum of American Jewish History for the ketubah signing and then the ceremony. Their ceremony was held on the 5th floor of the museum and once the coupled exited the space, we escorted guests down to the concourse for a delicious cocktail hour. The dinner and dancing portion of the evening was held back up on the 5th floor and was filled with lovely and touching speeches from the couple's parents and family. Tables were topped with pretty florals done by Nature's Gallery Florist. When it was time to kick the party into high gear, the Ken Ulansey Band turned up the tempo of songs and got the guests out onto the dance floor. It was a perfect day from start to finish and we were so happy to be there to help! Mazel Tov Sara and Jared! -Lisa
