Olivia and Jeffrey said "I do" on June 5th 2021 at Osprey Point in Rock Hall, Maryland with the perfect backdrop of yachts and sailboats, could it get any better? Well... Yes, when the groom + groomsmen comes in on one of the yachts and when the one and only Johnny Weir was a guest!
Olivia and Jeffrey were a dream! A light blue and gold, tent by the bay type of dream! This wedding was designed head to toe by KMW and everything came together in full circle - starting with the Minted invitations and custom Chesapeake Bay envelope liner to the slate and rain blue napkins on the tables. Even the custom-made signage had hints of dusty blue and gold accents.
This couple could not wait to get married, and I cannot wait to show you through their special day. Let's sail away!
This first look was so cute! His exact words - "Oh my gosh... You look so beautiful... Omg, WOW, oh my gosh! You just look so amazing, I can't stop looking at you!"
This entrance... On the right is the Escort Board, Neon Sign, Card Box and on the left is the Welcome Sign and Memorial Display.
This Custom Made Escort Board by KMW was so cool, we wanted to put a splash of the blue and gold in the design! After everyone found their seat, this green wall and neon sign was the backdrop for the photo booth! Re-use re-use re-use!
Yeah... I wasn't kidding! The groomsmen came in on a boat and walked down the dock as their aisle. I'm sure there wasn't any foul play or shotgunning beers on this ride over...
My all-time favorite photos from this wedding! Pure "just got married" bliss!
Gigi - the model got to take some pics with Mom and Dad while her sister, wasn't behaving as well as her. How cute is this floral crown made by Fresh Designs florist.
OH Hi Johnny Weir! You know, just a two-time Olympic champion, Dancing with the Stars contestant and TV commentator at Olivia and Jeffrey's wedding, no big deal right?
The inside of this tent! AHH! Black and White Dance Floor, Champagne Linen, the round tables had a darker Slate Faille napkin, the long rectangle tables had a lighter Rain Faille napkin to give contrast. The best of all, the Blue Goblets for drinking glasses, LOVE!
Everything about this is YUMMY for the eyes!
Hand-painted Signature Drink signs with these special pups! We had to make them a part of their special day somehow! Also, I tried both of these, guilty as charged!
Mixture of floral compotes, pillar candles and long garland with flower buds to give the tables dimension.
The love between these two, will last a lifetime! Hire us for your 10-Year Anniversary Party!
Topping this night off with surprise confetti poppers to the song,
"Mr. Brightside" if this doesn't get everyone singing and dancing, nothing will!
As always, thank you to all the amazing vendors that helped bring this wedding together! Thank you to Olivia and Jeffrey for being the most amazing couple to work with and trusting us with their special day!

I'm so excited to show you guys this awesome Event! Our client, Brigitte, called me about 1 month ago and asked if we could possibly throw together a Shabby-Chic / Epic Surprise Party for her husband, Leo, at their beach house in Avalon, NJ. Obviously the answer was YES! If we have availability on the weekend, you'll find us hard pressed to say no to our clients! We gathered some of our favorite vendors together, created custom signage, sent invitations via Paperless Post and we planned a party! The color scheme was Navy, White and accents of Gold, with a Shabby Beach vibe thrown in there every chance we got!
Little fun fact, this entire event was supposed to be outside - on their top and bottom wrap around deck, by the pool, in the backyard, etc. and as you can see the event was mainly indoors! The one thing a planner can't control is... the weather! We had to create a Plan B and C which ended up being half indoors and half outdoors for when the rain stopped and it ended up being perfect!
Let's take a look at this last-minute, yet epic, 45th celebration by the beach!
These signs were in the foyer right when the guests walked in, the perfect way to enter a party!
Florals by A Garden Party - this color palette is to die for!
Custom Cigar Bar by Kyle Michelle Weddings and Events - any chance to use the Cricut, we will spruce everything up!
Hi! Fun fact - this is all plastic-ware... Yup! Throw away plates, napkins and flatware! This makes a smaller Event so much more efficient and fun! No worrying about glass breaking or washing any dishes... Love this!
Thank you to all of the amazing vendors for making this Event awesome! Let's do some more!

Married in the City of Brotherly Love
Time to gush over how cute these two love birds are! Jessica and Joe went all out and had so many personalized items throughout their wedding that made the day even more special for them. Not to mention all the subtle nods towards the love they share for Philadelphia, like their unique guest book, their personalized reception shoes and even their wedding cake!
Getting to plan this wedding for Jessica and Joe was incredibly fun because of how excited they were to get married, since they have been smitten with each other for years now! (scroll on down to see the dates of their love story that were on display! )
Now let's reminisce about this wedding together by taking a look at the gorgeous photos done by MLE Photography
An emotional moment where the bride & groom read letters they had written to each other for the morning of their wedding day.
The flower girl was VERY excited to have successfully done her job!
You can feel the love oozing from this picture of Joe watching Jessica walk down the aisle, our hearts are melting!
Now look at this stunning bridal party! We loved their bridesmaid dresses so so much, perfect for a summer wedding!
Look how handsome and dapper the groom looked on his wedding day. Anyone else love the new trend of the groom wearing a colored suit jacket & his groomsmen wearing a complimentary color jacket??
One of the cutest flower girls we've ever seen!
Some sweet family portraits!
Cocktail hour!! Check out that ice sculpture of the "Dog of Honor" we are obsessed!
Doesn't this tent just look ethereal?? We were so in love with the chandelier, which there were THREE of throughout the whole tent!
So many elegant details! Who doesn't love a champagne cart before your ceremony?
This was the perfect cake for these two, since they have such a love for the city of Philadelphia! Just look at that city skyline!
Alexa play "Taylor Gang" by Wiz Khalifa... Our bride & groom changed into these personalized Vans & Converse for the reception, how cool are these shoes??
Had to give a spotlight moment to all the florals from this wedding because that flower wall is to die for!
And now welcoming...... THE TAYLORS
We love a wedding party with LOTS of personality who know how to have fun and these photos are perfect examples of how ready to party this wedding party is!
And how cute are the parents of the bride and groom??
Can you imagine a more perfect sunset?? These pictures are right out of a fairytale!
There wasn't a dry eye in the house during the father of the brides speech
Nothing can beat the bond that these two have with their parents
Jessica and Joe are both huge fans of all sports teams in Philadelphia, so what better of a surprise from the mother of the bride, than to have the Eagles Pep Band show up!!! Everyone was SHOCKED when they walked into the tent
Anyone else get to put on the Eagles Championship Ring at their wedding??
And now it's time to DANCE!!!!
And of course... desserts!!
Little switch up on the cake cutting tradition! The Maid of Honor and Best Man got a surprise cake to the face, delivered by the bride and groom themselves! You can see the victory on the grooms face after he caked the maid of honor!
And a classic sparkler send off for the bride and groom!
COVID Switcharoo part... one million and one.
Still obsessed with this gorgeous invitation suite! The blue and gold are such a dreamy combination, especially for a spring wedding. It was also a dream to work with Libby & Kyle to plan their wedding, since they were another one of our pandemic couples, they had to change around their original plans for their wedding and they were such good sports about it!
We always love to venture out to new venues, which is exactly what we did for this wedding! The Scranton Country Club was the perfect venue for Libby and Kyle and we are still not over how beautiful it all turned out!
Now let's scroll through these amazing pictures by MLE Photography!
A super sweet moment between father and daughter during his first look at her in her dress! First looks always bring tears to our eyes and of course tears to the eyes of the father and the bride. So much love can be felt in these moments!
Finally husband and wife!
Now look at this gorgeous wedding party!
Raise your hand is cocktail hour is one of your favorite parts of a wedding!! Who doesn't love mingling, drinks with adorable koozies & a tuscan garden station?
We absolutely loved making the signs for this wedding, we love a good baby blue moment.
All custom-made by Kyle Michelle Weddings!
Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Reap!
We're glad this computer screen is hiding our tears! Mother & son and father & daughter dances always get us choked up
Cheers to the happy couple!
Talk about some major puppy love, I think we love Willow as much as she loves her mom and dad!
We're going to be thinking of these sunset photos for years to come, you can feel their love and happiness just by looking at these pictures of them! The absolute cutest! Thanks to MLE Photography for all of these stunning photos!
Looks like father of the bride really loved his daughters wedding cake! We're sure it tasted just as amazing as it looked!
Thank you to all of the absolutely amazing vendors for making Libby and Kyle's wedding as beautiful as it was!

AHHH, what a breath of fresh shore air! Everything about this event was absolutely perfect! The venue was a dreamy private residence in Avalon, NJ with a bay view and sandy beach backyard. We spruced up the place with Hawaiian florals, green palms, custom made signage by KMW and some luau - inspired furniture. We got everything needed down to fun flip flops and leis for every guest ( and even the 4 legged guests ;) )
This was such a fun, last-minute event for our books and the client was living her best life! Literally! Let's take a look at some of these fun photos by Olivia Anne Photography!
These two photos might be my favorite, so dreamy! Also, these amazing vases with florals buds in them were a fun favor for all fo the guests to take home at the end of the night!
We had a little dress code for this event - neutral colors, white, gold, pastels or Luau inspired. Everyone looked amazing!
Of course the Kyle Michelle Weddings girls had to play a little!
Thank you to all of the amazing vendors for making Amy's 50th Luau perfect!

AHHHH, the colors! We love a vibrant wedding aesthetic to start off wedding season and we love a Day-of-Coordination at the Horticulture Center in PA. Jessie and Jim were a pleasure to work with and crafty too! Everything you see, Jessie likely made from scratch (the escort board, the record guestbook, the table numbers, welcome sign, etc.) Everything came together so organically, with coral, pink, navy blue and yellow floral buds that were on all signage and even the cake! A wedding planners dream!
We were so happy to be in the city again! Also, this view...
Camellia Faire Floral and Event Design with the beautiful Spring florals! Who would know that it was a rainy day in PA with all these bright and happy colors?
The start of all of the custom signage made by the bride herself! Talk about being hands-on!
Hey Maggpie, long time no see!
Let's do some math together, Camellia Faire + Lumos Co + Horticulture Center = Beautiful Wedding!
Guys... This has to be my FAVORITE cake that Nutmeg ever made / (we have ate). All the aspects of the wedding day tied all of the colors together and the 'petal theme' that they had going on with all of their signage. I'm obsessed!
Congratulations Jessie and Jim! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
Welcome to another 'COVID-Switcheroo Part 157'.
Alex and Steve were a different story, as they were not forced to swap their date, but to swap their venue location. They were originally getting married at Union Trust in Philadelphia and had to switch to a PA venue, where the rules and regulations are different, Ellis Preserve. We had to then transform their Black and Gold, dark and modern wedding into a lighter and more contemporary ballroom vibe, this is where we had to intertwine a little bit of silver and white into the mix.
When we heard the bride and groom wanted a 'black and gold wedding' we jumped at the opportunity of uniqueness. We designed everything from the Invitations to the Day-Of Signage (Escort Mirror, Welcome Sign, Photo Booth Guestbook, Timeline, Cards & Gifts, Signature Drink Sign and lastly, The Cigar Bar). We even brought a bottle of spray-paint to color some of the greenery gold and black... Shh... Everything came together perfectly and we're so happy that Alex and Steve were able to enjoy their special day!
Let's take a dive into these amazing photos by Bartlett Pair Photography!
First look or no first look? That is the question! A big PRO of doing a first look is the amount of time you can preserve for more picture taking, you can knock out all of the photos before cocktail hour and the couple can then truly enjoy their cocktail hour and have a drink...or two ;)
I mean... Really... You guys are GORGEOUS!
Yummy florals by Carl Alan! We're living for all of the gold and black spruces!
Okay, get ready, here it comes... We call this one; "Signage Galore". All custom-made by Kyle Michelle Weddings!
Fun Wedding Hack: If you don't want a Photo Booth or it just can't fit into your budget, grab a few disposable cameras or polaroids and let your guests take their own photos and of course, leave one for you! This is such a fun idea and will be a great memory.
This menu was so fun to create on Minted, it pulled all of the colors together perfectly; silver, gold, white and black. We also made these quick hand sanitizers for each place setting.
...and then we danced the night away!
What a day & night with these two! We absolutely loved every single of this planning process, (even if we were given some curve balls (COVID)). We wish Alex and Steve nothing, but the best and can't want to plan some of their future events.

This wedding is special to us as it was smack-dab in the middle of the COVID season. We had no choice but to move this New York City 300-person wedding, to the brides parent's shore house in Mantoloking, NJ and cut the guest list to 80 people. We tented up their backyard, which was luckily on the water with an amazing view. We had to switch some of the design aspects, as it turned into a much smaller venue and an even different feel (shore vs. city) and (outdoors vs. indoors.)
This is one of the big perks of having a wedding planner - we know how to take the unexpected and turn it into something memorable and beautiful! We ended up having an elegant and classy micro- wedding in the backyard of this amazing shore house, oh and later it turned into a fun party with confetti poppers, live music and lots of booze!
Let's take a look and dive deeper into this covid switcheroo. I don't know about you, but I think this wedding was perfect as is and wouldn't have been better anywhere else.
This sweetheart table absolutely blew us away. Thank you (florist) for making this design come to life! Also... um hello Sailboat, would you like to join the party? What a perfect photo Brett Mathews!
This was by far, my favorite part of this wedding. We secretly handed out 100 confetti poppers to the guests and the second that '(I've Had) Time of My Life' came on, everyone popped them. Oh and they did the lift, YUP they stuck the landing! It was absolutely breathtaking and we will be using these again in the future! Also, the photo-app is incredible!

We love a good SURPRISE, especially when it is for one of our couples getting married in 2021. Alex and Steve are getting married March 13th 2021 at Ellis Preserve and ironically, Steve is turning 30 in a day or so, so his sweet Fiancé wanted to do something special for him and we hopped right on in. Being a big Philly sports fan, we took our ideas and ran with them to make the perfection 30th celebration! The party was at Kaminski's Bar and Grill in Cherry Hill, NJ - they had an outdoor tented patio with Edison bulbs, fire pits, TV's with sports on, it was perfect for a quant get together, and the food was great!
This AMAZING sports cake is from The Cake Boutique in Mullica Hill, NJ. They went above and beyond with the design we gave them. Why have 1 sports cake when you can have a compilation of all 4? Not only did it look good, but the chocolate chip and peanut butter filling was to die for. Philly Philly!
Custom centerpieces for each table. We just wanted to dress-up the outdoor tables and make it comfortable and cute.
Custom work by Kyle Michelle Weddings - we made 'Aged to Perfection' custom koozies, Hangover Kits with some necessities inside, and centerpieces with fun booze. We got Steve a nice big bottle for his birthday to drink AFTER all the wedding business is over. We really took this theme of 'Aged to Perfection' and tried to keep it throughout the event.
We also made fun signs with some of the most famous Philadelphia sports quotes and put those around the tables. We had one from each sports team; Phillies, Eagles, 76ers and Flyers. We wanted to give the guests something to chat about!
*Cough cough, when we won the Super Bowl*
As we're still in some difficult times with COVID, we had a separate invitation for some people who couldn't make it to the party so they could join us on Zoom. We told them to grab a drink, order some pizza and join the party virtually!
This was SO MUCH FUN to plan and we can't wait to keep planning everything in the future for this amazing couple.
Stay tuned for their amazing wedding in 2 weeks, the blog of the special day will be much bigger and more detailed!
Ahh, our first official Event as Kyle Michelle Weddings and Events and WOW it blew us away! Tighler came to us a month or so ago for a small tea-inspired baby shower and since it was in December, the house would be decorated for Christmas. Well, we heard tea and Christmas and ran with it!
The house was red, green and silver and gold galore and we kept it going with velvet linens, red and gold baby decor, customized stationery, all custom-made signage by KMW and beautiful flatware and tea sets from Party Rentals. Due to COVID, we had a few extra add-on's to keep the safety of everyone and especially, the mommy-to-be. We had custom 'Baby it's Cold Outside' masks, signs not to hug or kiss, and tables 6 feet apart.
Everything came together perfectly and made Tighler's dream Baby Shower come true and our first Event hard to beat ( but we will, don't worry ;) )
This custom signage was super fun to create and combine with the forest green linens, red and gold accents everywhere. We made 'Guess Who' games, 'Decorate Me' tags for the custom ornaments, Favor Tags, Welcome Sign, Instruction Signage, the Escort Board, Escort Cards, etc.
Okay, this is by far the best part... We had Santa sitting in the foyer with his sacks collecting presents from the guests and when it was time for present opening, Santa came in with all of the presents. Then, all of the guests could take pictures with Santa.
Did I mention that Santa is the soon-to-be Dad? Oh, I didn't. That'll explain why she is kissing him on the cheek in the photo below...
This was a 'tea-inspired' event so we had tea sandwiches, salads, mini quiches, pastries, etc. Philly with a Twist killed it with the food - I mean, how cute?!
Thank you to all of the amazing vendors coming together for this special event for Tighler and Trent and baby Tristan. We wish you all the luck in the world!
