Kyle Michelle Weddings Blog
As Clare and her father waited to walk down the aisle of St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church, Geoff couldn't suppress a beaming smile from his face. The guests loved watching the flower girl and ring bearer being pulled in a small wagon, but they quickly fell silent when Clare appeared at the end of the aisle. The ceremony ended in applause, which didn't stop throughout the rest of the night. At every event including the couple's introduction, the first dance, and Clare's father's speech the guests applauded and cheered! We enjoyed every second of this wedding purely because of the true joy that radiated from the newlyweds and guests alike.
Clare and Geoff - thank you so much for including the Kyle Michelle team in your big day, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
Mary and Alex proved the perfect couple to kick off the Summer wedding season. Their wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all took place in Morris Arboretum, located in the suburbs of Philadelphia. The location, very much like the couple themselves, was bright and beautiful on the day of the wedding. We enjoyed every minute we spent planning Mary and Alex's big day and Sharyn did an incredible job capturing the beauty of the entire event!
The bridesmaids and the groomsmen had fun throughout the entire day - they were the perfect group of people to match Mary and Alex's playful personalities!
Alex was involved in the entire planning process, but his biggest concern was that Mary remained happy. Their love for each other was reflected in their emotional ceremony, where Alex couldn't take his eyes off his beautiful bride and Mary lovingly held her new husband's hand throughout the entire ceremony.
As Mary and Alex made their way down the aisle, Mary couldn't stop smiling and Alex mouthed "thank you" to us. The following cocktail hour and reception was filled with laughing and TONS of dancing. Leaves of Grass florals completely decorated the reception area into a woodland wonderland for the couple and the guests loved the photobooth and candy bar set up inside.
We loved that the newlyweds picked a unique song, "Everlasting Light" by The Black Keys, for their first dance - it couldn't have been more romantic! Thank you Mary and Alex for including us in your big day - we love you two and wish you the best in your new life together!
When someone compliments you on your dress and you're not even the bride
Every wedding is different, but there are definitely situations at every wedding that we can all relate to or find some humor in. If you've been to a few weddings this season I'm sure you'll recognize a moment or two!
When you find out it's an open bar
When they're butlering hor dourves and you haven't eaten all day
When you spot the ring bearer or flower girl looking cute as a button
When the buffet opens
When dinner is plated and you're waiting for everyone at the table to be served before you eat
During the bride and groom's first dance
When someone's toast goes on for way too long
When the DJ/band plays your jam but dinner is still being served
By the end of the main course
When you're single and spy a cutie
When things start to get a little out of control on the dance floor
When the photographer walks by
When they start cutting the cake
When you make your sober significant other or friend drive home
Okay, now that I got that out of the way…we LOVE this couple!!! Ariana and Ever were rightfully completely and unapologetically themselves throughout the entire planning process and their day reflected it perfectly!
This wedding was a massive celebration (i.e. party, bash, blast, fete, merriment, etc.) of two amazing people who love each other and we can not explain how honored we were that they picked us to be a part of their day.
Our first time meeting Ariana and Ever was at Old City Coffee in Philadelphia, PA. I don’t remember much of our conversation being about weddings. Instead, we chatted and laughed like old friends who hadn’t seen each other in years. We learned about each other, gossiped and realized we were in love with them.
Much like the rest of Ariana and Ever's wedding, they wanted a first look that was totally them. Having their families involved was important. So what's better than having their brothers stand between them and share a moment together before stepping aside to reveal the brides to each other?
Is this not perfection?!?! We were so excited to set up the ceremony in a circular fashion. Ariana and Ever wanted to make sure they were surrounded by their family and friends as they took the biggest step in their relationship. Erika and Andrew from Chicory Florals came in and worked their magic on this beautiful Chuppah. And of course, Ariana's amazingly crafty self who crocheted the Chuppah herself.
During the ceremony Rabbi Linda told a story of how she asked the girls how they wanted to be presented to their family and friends and that the girls looked at one another and said, "Call us bashert, because that is what we are."
(Bashert is a Yiddish word that means destiny or in terms of a spouse, soulmates.)
It was so much fun setting up this wedding! The beautiful, eclectic pieces of china were collected by Ariana's mother throughout the planning process to use on their day.
This picture is absolutely everything!! Thank you Carina for capturing this!
Ariana & Ever, we loved being a part of the planning process with you and being with you on your day. Thank you for allowing us to share this with you! Our Summer Solstice was such a great day!
