A Winter Wedding at Reading Country Club

Reading Country Club looks like a castle, and is even a little Medieval in interior design. This week's wedding and reception was held there for Aviva and Dustin. That dear bride was calmly applying all the make-up for all eight of her bridesmaids when I arrived! She still wasn't dressed herself when we were finished almost 3 hrs. later, so I didn't get a to see her in her gorgeous dress, so I can't wait to see her pictures when they are posted on her photographer's website and blog. http://www.bjfphotography/. com

The bride's bouquet was made of red Intuition roses, Swartzwalder Mini-Callas and burgundy Mini Carnations. Little crystal drops were added to the Callas and Salal leaves.

8 Bridesmaids wore a deep burgundy color and carried bouquets of White Hydrangeas, white Majolika Roses, Cream Stock, and were accented with clusters of crystals.

Guest table centerpieces were the ever -versatile Pilsner vase with crushed ice and a Swartzwalder mini-Calla. We added white branches to the outside of the vases for a wintery look.

For the large, long Head bridal table for 18, we used our glass bead garland, White Birch Branches in pilsner vases and lots of votive candles with crushed ice, white submersible lights and our silver chargers. All 9 bouquets were placed in between the garland after the ceremony. We were finished before the staff arrived to set the tables, so I'm sure once it was fully dressed, it was beautiful. The White Birch branches are a popular dramatic stand-by for the wintery weddings.
So we're busy working on all the little (little?!?) projects for Jessie and Doug's upcoming June
wedding; as well as finishing up the last of the winter weddings, meeting with couples for their spring, summer and fall '09 weddings.... Plus we are planning our part of the exciting
'BEST OF WEDDINGS' Show in April , at the brand new, soon to open Lancaster Convention Center. Get your advance tickets now for a bag-ful of wonderful wedding surprises!
So much fun......good thing we LOVE what we do!!
Next wedding is in two weeks with the reception at the Lancaster Country Club-just across the convenient!
Is it Spring yet????
