'This September day was a day to remember for Ali and Caleb's Wedding. Ali's family home made the perfect setting for pictures and Pomme in Radnor, PA was the best venue to have Ali and Caleb's vision for their wedding come to life. Enjoy these pictures by Love Me Do Photography!
We love these unique and amazing bridesmaids dresses!
The floral arrangements by Cottage Flowers really pulled everything together!
Thank you Ali and Caleb for letting us be a part of your special day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!
It's time to break out those hats, mittens, scarves and cozy blankets because winter is coming, and we could not be more excited! In just a few short weeks winter weddings will be in full swing. In preparation for the winter wedding season we have listed our most favorite and festive winter wedding trends! Whether you are planning a cozy and intimate wedding or full force winter wedding bash these ideas will help make your special day one that your guests remember for seasons to come!
There are certain things that only work with winter weddings. Giving your guests a little taste of these once a year treats is a perfect way to say thank you for attending your special day. We love the to-go hot chocolate to keep your guests warm after your wedding ends and the unique take on succulents with festive evergreens!
Nothing screams cozy like a fur wrap or jacket for your winter wedding. Unless you live in the Caribbean for your winter wedding, chances are its going to be pretty cold. Keep yourself warm and seasonal with these looks.
Winter brings along with it rich colors and cozy fabrics. Break out the deep reds and greens for a classic Christmas look, knitted chair covers for a warm feel, or keep it sleek with all white and gold to bring the snowy outside in!
Winter is the only time you can break out the evergreen, holly and ornaments and not look like you are confused on what season it is. We absolutely love the antique ornament table numbers hung up so they act as decorations for your wedding as well!
If you are lucky enough to live in a part of the country where snow is a possibility for your winter wedding you may be able to capture adorable pictures like these! These snowy snapshots are the perfect way to capture all of the romance of your special day.
Happy almost winter!
Danielle's dress was everything and the bridesmaids dresses were perfection for a New Years celebration!
We are seeing more and more of these cake toppers and we are NOT getting tired of them!

So you're planning your wedding and immediately you are transported back to your childhood of when you wore your mom's high heels, a long flowing veil and you married...you're brother. Or maybe not. Maybe you have no idea what "theme" or "color scheme" you want for your wedding. Either way, pulling your wedding together is a daunting task that can leave you feeling lost and confused. That's why you hire us...I mean, here are some tips that may help you figure this all out!
#1. Reflect on yourselves to find a theme.
What's in a theme? My favorite types of themes are those that represent the bride &/or groom. Are you an avid reader? Do you love a certain flower, perhaps a sunflower? Are you going for a BBQ theme and you have a secret family BBQ rub recipe you can share with your guests? Do you love beer, I mean do you live in an area that makes a certain type of beer and maybe you like drinking it too? Are you enamored with a foreign destination (that's for you Desiree) or maybe you are getting married in front of your coy pond and you are super talented and design your own invitations... I love them all!!!!
#2. Stay focused, and try not to stray.
This is one of the hardest parts of pulling your wedding together. And I'm going to go ahead and say what we're all thinking, Pinterest is making this very difficult. If you're like me, you would like 5 different weddings, so you can use five different themes, colors and even venues. Unfortunately, what we end up seeing is what we like to call, a Pinterest mosh posh, basically a mix of cool ideas, that don't have any relation. The key is to find your inspiration picture. Stay focused and continually keep going back to make sure it matches!
#3. Less is more or maybe more is more.
So you have your theme, it's simple and being simple is a complete representation of you as a couple. So, in that case keep it simple. However, if you're going to go with a theme, then go big! The details are what can bring a theme or color scheme to life.
#4. Fall in love.
With your theme that is. Make sure you love the colors you are using, make sure you love what your venue looks like and most of all make sure the man or woman you are marrying loves them too! When a couple can create a masterpiece of a wedding, they can usually create a masterpiece of a marriage. And let's face it, a wedding lasts a day, a marriage lasts a lifetime!
#5. Invite your wedding pro's to work together.
This is the key to maintaining a constant theme or color scheme for your wedding. When your wedding planner and your florist, your venue coordinator, caterer and your DJ are all on the same page, so is your wedding. If your DJ does not know your wedding theme of vintage and old world, he/she may in fact show up with a light show that doesn't work with the feel of your wedding. Or, when working with a fantastic catering company he/she will make your food, serving plates and display decor match that of your wedding. And your florist is key! Make sure he/she gets your theme, understands your vision and can make your vision come to life!
In the end your wedding should be about you, your commitment and the bringing of two families together to celebrate the love between two beautiful people!
Good luck planning!!!!
From the numerous phone calls and emails, to the day we finally met for the first time, we knew Kelly and Matt’s wedding would be one for the books! Their spirited and fun-loving personalities radiated through every aspect of the day, even down to their unique favors. The day went off without a hitch, starting with an early morning setup and ending with a jam-packed dance floor!
The Ocean Club Hotel was the ideal backdrop for Kelly and Matt’s vision of a not-so-traditional beach wedding. From the intimate ambiance of the modern SeaSalt, to the incredible views from the spacious Sundeck, these two couldn't have picked a better venue! The coordinator at the Ocean Club, Samantha, was simply a dream to work with!
Now everyone, prepare yourselves for this one!
When we first saw this photo on Hello Gorgeous' Facebook page, I'm pretty sure we all said at one:
"OH. MY. GOSH."
Kelly, you are absolutely stunning and this picture captures just that! We admire you for taking such a risk!
Rachel, you are truely a genius!!
Kelly dreamed of having bouquets that resembled a bundle of freshly picked flowers.
We think Coventry Crossing nailed it!
See?! I told you this group was fun!
This wedding had it all: breathtaking views, stunning wedding gown, guests who came ready to celebrate, delicious food, classy decor, packed dance floor...
and most of all, a couple who radiates LOVE!
Kelly and Matt, we are so honored to have been a part of your big day! We loved being able to bring your ideas to fruition! We wish you all the best!!

Kristin and I met Dani Jill and her mother Molly via Skype in April 2012 while Dani Jill was visiting her Mom on vacation in Florida. Dani Jill knew exactly what she wanted but lived in Texas and was planning on having her wedding in New Jersey at her soon to be mother-in-law’s farm.
Dani Jill had most of what she envisioned for her wedding day pinned on Pinterest (oh, technology...still amazes me!). With her ideas and ours we helped plan the perfect day. Kristin and I knew the exact bridal bouquet she wanted and what she wanted for centerpieces, so in order to help ease some of costs that comes with a wedding we offered to make her bouquet as well as her bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnieres for the groom, groomsman, and fathers as well as the wrist corsages for the Mothers and Grandmothers. For the centerpieces, Dani Jill’s family had mason jars and we had flowers and twine!
Dani Jill also wanted a fun way to display her escort cards and favors (lottery tickets) and I had an old, glass paned door…perfect match. Kristin and I roughed up the door by sanding all the edges then strung twine in horizontal rows down the door and using the teeniest, tiniest, clothespins everything came together.
We could not have had anymore fun planning this wedding and anymore fun with Dani Jill and Aaron’s families. Aaron’s Mothers farm was breath taking and so was the bride!
This day started with two families coming together and ended with homemade Strawberry Wine and Moonshine!

What do your tables say about your wedding?
Don't forget to pay attention to the details of your table decor! It is in fact the place your guests will sit for at least an hour during your reception. In keeping with your style, select a special element that will make a statement. Maybe it's a fantastic table cloth, maybe it's unique dishes or maybe it's the tables and chairs themselves. Whatever it is, don't forget it!
These tables say more than a mouthful!
