There is always a story behind every couple. Some are the tralatitious love stories of falling in mad passionate love at first sight and some stories are about long ago friendships and many years passing with two people living separate lives, until their paths cross again and ignites a remembered spark. Kristin and Alex's love story follows the latter.
They wanted something modern and contemporary. A venue that would, in it's own right, speak about their personalities. They are a fun, modern, chic and unique couple- Alex with a love for music and Kristin a love for Bees. aLoft in Moorestown, NJ was the perfect pick for these two.
Kristin’s love for bees was portrayed throughout the wedding with little touches of honey combs on their invitations, ring bearers carried one blue bee and one pink bee as the ring pillows and on their gorgeous ombre cake sat two bees kissing. Alex’s love for music was also present; their guest book was a cobalt blue electric guitar.
As unique a couple as Kristin and Alex are they actually revived an old tradition from the Roman Catholic church where the bride and groom enter and walk down the aisle together symbolizing their complementary role in their marriage. Although their ceremony was not held in a church, it was an awesome way to enter their future lives together.
Kristin and Alex said their "I Dos" in front of a white, antique, upright piano (another nod to Alex’s love for music) that was adorned with black and white pictures of family members past. Their vows each written on their own and left no dry eyes in the house.
Their reception was just as spectacular in presentation as their ceremony. The walls and ceilings up lit in fuchsia. Guest table linens were cobalt blue with fuchsia napkins while their sweetheart table was fabulously trimmed with a tulle, fuchsia skirt made by the bride.
It was a day that we, as planners, looked forward to since the day we met them. It was an honor to be a part of their planning process and to share in their most special day.
