Real Wedding: Caroline & Joe

December weddings are so much fun and we had the chance to work with one AMAZING bride who brought so much energy and enthusiasm to the planning process. Besides being gorgeous, she is also extremely smart and has great style. Oh, did I mention she was also the captain of the Eagles cheerleading team!  Caroline had some great details from the opera singers at her ceremony to her and Joe's choreographed first dance, the guests were entertained from start to finish.  We also got to work with some of Philadelphia's best wedding professionals.  The reception was at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in the Landmark Building, the dramatic flowers were done by none other then the talented team at Beautiful Blooms, and the beautiful photos that captured the evening were shoot by Faith West.   We hope you enjoy!!!

My favorite part was the vintage fur wraps that she collected for all of her bridesmaids. What a great bridesmaid gift. Drool! 

She wore a fabulous Carolina Herrera gown that she picked up at Kleinfield in NYC, the gold beading was to die for. 

 They were adorable, so jealous of the red hair

It was a huge Eagles cheerleaders reunion. They performed the fight song and everyone went crazy. Never have I seen so many beautiful women together in one room! Doesn't Caroline's maid to the right look like Jessica Simpson? I thought she was so cute.

For their favors we made custom boxes of gourmet hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows. Each stripe of paper looked like lace cut by hand.  Martha would be proud!
