Kyle Michelle Weddings Blog
Linley and Matt had the most amazing vision for their wedding day and it was an honor to make their vision come to life. The ceremony was at St. Patricks Church where they had a live choir throughout the ceremony. The reception was at The Logan, where tons of Christmas trees and twinkle lights were awaiting the guests. Linley and Matt were extremely happy and head over heels about the end result of the venue. As the night came to an end, they performed the famous Will Smith song, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" while Philly cheesesteaks were passed around to all of the guests. This amazing Christmas wedding absolutely stole our hearts and we wish much love and happiness to this beautiful couple as this wedding will be in our hearts forever!
Let's talk about this dress... This dress was designed by the bride and Priscilla Costa - starting with just a sketch on a piece of paper. The feather and sequin design made every sway and movement completely breathtaking. This dress is a one of a kind, just like the bride!!!
Cocktail hour and the reception was at The Logan - where a custom-made champagne tower was waiting for each guest topped with a cinnamon sugar rim, a dash of rosemary and cranberries with each flute. The champagne tower really helped to tie together the vision of Christmas and class. The reception area was filled with lit-up Christmas trees, wreaths, red and burgundy florals and candles - it was truly a wonderland.
Not shown: the 3 costume changes this band did throughout their performance. They were one of the most interactive bands we've ever experienced and they sure knew how to bring a party to the dance floor!
The day began early at the Society Hill Sheraton Hotel in Philadelphia. When the Kyle Michelle team arrived on the scene, the bride was busy getting ready and the groom was kickin' it back with his closest men (and little men!). We ventured over to Amanda's room first to check on things!
After checking on the bride, we moved on to see Chris and make sure the boys weren't getting into too much trouble! After pinning the boutonnieres on the men, we left the room so that Chris could read Amanda's love letter and open her wedding gift to him - a beautiful watch.
With both wedding parties ready to go, we took the trolleys down the street for the first look before the ceremony. Once Chris saw his beautiful bride and a few kisses were exchanged, the bridesmaids and groomsmen joined their photoshoot. While the girls were busy posing for the camera, Chris surprised his groomsmen with a special present - personalized flasks!
Here comes the bride! In the early afternoon, everyone began heading over to Old St. Mary's Church for the ceremony. It was a truly beautiful Catholic service that ended with a parade of bubbles outside the church doors! Don't believe us? Take a look!
Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you Mr. and Mrs. Bernardi!
And the party begins! This crazy bunch of people didn't stop once the music started - we even joined in and danced with them a bit! From the first dance, to dances with the parents, and finally to the cake cutting, we loved each and every moment of this wedding. Congratulations Amanda and Chris, we hope you two had an amazing wedding day and that you enjoy an even more incredible life together!
