The Pros that made a wedding perfect!

Although I knew that I wanted to create many aspects of my wedding and include projects that my family could put their own touch on, I also knew I wanted professionals to make the day picture perfect. We met with vendors at wedding expos, pursued recommendations and interviewed potential partners. The end result was absolutely perfect and we couldn't be happier with the professionals who helped make the day a success!

We are so excited with our photograph from Matthew of Wilton Brothers Photography. I haven't been able to stop looking at them. Matthew was fantastic to work with and made us all so relaxed. His photos capture the small details and the overall spirit of our day. The weather was uncooperative and rainy - but Matthew was not deterred and without the umbrellas you might not even realize the weather was less than perfect.


Brad at Harrington Flowers created our bouquets, wreaths for the chapels, arrangement for the podium and centerpieces for the reception tables. The designs and flowers were absolutely beautiful! Brad took our ideas and inspiration, added his expertise and creativity and the results were even more beautiful than I could have imagined!

Our Wedding Cake was beautiful and absolutely delicious thanks to the creative and talented Pastry Chefs at Popover's on the Square. The simple, elegant buttercream decoration, done by Pastry Chef Katie, were perfectly accented by our wedding color flowers. The tiers were three layers of chocolate, vanilla and marble cake sandwiched with raspberry filling and chocolate hazelnut fudge. So delicious!


Mr. Jonathan was our DJ and he kept the dance floor hopping the whole night! He played the perfect mix of music that allowed guests to show off their ballroom dancing skills, swing and just get down. Mr. Jonathan was quick to respond to the vibe of the crowd and asked throughout the night if they was anything we needed. He was a real professional and the perfect ingredient to an evening of fun for all.

Neither David or I are naturals when it comes to dancing, but we wanted our first dance to be a relaxing and memorable experience. We stated private lessons with Maria at Paper Moon Studio several months before the big day. We learned a routine of the Foxy to the song, You are the best thing. Maria was a great teacher - very patient and motivating! We practiced, fine tuned and practiced until it felt very natural. The final performance was so close to perfect and we were having so much fun we didn't have to worry about remembering to smile!

I'll share more about the venue and hair & make up and fashion in another post.

You created so many warm memories for all of your guests. The personal touches were evident everywhere. Just the other day I noticed your names in the candy sticks that held the place cards at the reception places. A month later and I am still being surprised!
