Last year I married my boyfriend 🙂 We had an intimate ceremony at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Radnor with family and friends. My brother Colin from Merryweather Films did the videography, and he is also featured here doing his very manly duties of fixing my train as my Man of Honor. This photo is thanks to our photographer Marie Labbancz who did a wonderful job. (hair and make up by the one and only Beke Beau)
In honor of my Opa, I chose orchids for my bouquet which were his very favorite. Underneath them were garden roses, and Italian ruscus for my Italian husband.
My darling daughter and niece were two of my flower girls, carrying a little posy and each with a flower crown. Here they are sitting in front of a flower wall my mother and I made of roses and hydrangea. (dresses are from the Wedding Shoppe in Wayne, as was my dress)
Our centerpieces were tulips, in honor of my dutch roots, and long trailing orchids again in memory of my Opa. Mirrored tables, clear chiavari chairs, tall crystal candle sticks, and lots of cool table top design added a lot of sparkle and reflection. Our event designer, Christopher Carlson, was able to create a floorpan full of gorgeous details, that elevated the experience of the ballroom at St. Davids Golf Club to something completely new, fresh and one of a kind. It was intimate party of 160 guests, where everyone had a personal and inviting place to eat, mingle and sit on couches surrounding our custom striped dance floor and enjoy the sounds of our swing band, the Blue Vipers.
Nothing to do with my flowers, but very necessary to mention was this amazing creation by our friend Joseph Amrani at Delice et Chocolat of Ardmore, our beloved croquembouche. Nothing quite says its party time like this beautiful tower from heaven!!
