Weddings: Lynn & Jonathan

Last weekend we had the pleasure of working on the wedding of Lynn and Jonathan. Their ceremony was at St. Joseph's Cathedral and the reception took place in the Statler Towers Terrace Room. Lynn and Jonathan are a fun couple who are very easy going, and their love for life and one another definitely shined through the whole day. The crowd of mostly out of town guests enjoyed all the fabulous things Downtown Buffalo has to offer...including the brand new Embassy Suites in the Avant Building on Delaware Avenue. You should definitely check out this beautiful hotel!

Really sweet story...I was pinning on Jonathan's boutonniere and I asked him if he was nervous. He said "Absolutely not - I have never been more prepared for anything in my life." What a guy!! Here is a photo of the happy couple after they took their vows.

The set up at the Statler Terrace Room was just gorgeous. Their colors were "Carolina Blue" and Chocolate Brown. We incorporated a subtle star theme into the design, as one of their dates involved gazing at constellations (so romantic!). The centerpieces had tiny blue lights hanging off the branches, and the tables were named after constellations. The ivory floor length linen and mahogany chivari chairs enhanced the elegance of the room with its grand windows and high ceilings. Professional pictures will follow, but here are a few I managed to snap...

Guests enjoyed a candy buffet which coordinated with their chosen colors....

It was a beautiful wedding and I feel honored to have worked with such a wonderful couple and their families!

Chic hair accessories

A great way to add some personality to your wedding attire is with a hair accessory. We have had a couple brides this year who wore the traditional veil for the ceremony, and then removed it for the reception and added a unique accessory. Check out these pretty looks...
