The New Cork Factory's First Wedding

It's Lindsey Dukeman's wedding day! Lindsey is the friendly face of Hamilton Ballroom, and now also of  the new The Cork Factory  She's been assisting with hundreds of weddings in the past few years, and today it was her turn to be a beautiful happy bride, marrying Brad. 
Lindsey and Brad's invitations had lovebirds on them, and she used them throughout the decor
on the table numbers, cocktail tables, little salt & pepper shakers on the sweetheart table, and on the wedding cake.  Just enough, not overdone.

Beautiful linens from Special Occasions.

Below Rosie Rohrer assembles and finishes another cake masterpiece.

Lovebird details.
It's so exciting to have a another beautiful venue in Lancaster County.  It's a great  historic building and has been beautifully restored and enhanced.  The Powder Rooms are a must-see!

Wedding season is winding down in the next couple months, and we're looking forward to putting on the best wedding show EVER, the Sunday following Thanksgiving.

Patriot News Wedding Style Magazine

My husband 'just happened' to pick up the Harrisburg Patriot News at work and noticed a nice full-page feature on wedding planner, Jonnaysa Kirkham of Planned Perfection.  He had no idea the picture of the flowers was our work, he was just so excited to see Jonnaysa in the magazine, so he put it on the kitchen table for me to discover this morning.  What a nice surprise to wake up to.   Kris of KM was the artist behind the lens.  She always wows me with shots of the details.  Thanks both of you!

This week Lindsey, of Hamilton Ballroom is getting married, and we're designing her flowers!!  Her wedding is the first to happen at the new 'Cork Factory' venue.  I'll be sure to be posting some detail pictures.  (That is if I can get any decent shots!!)

Birght Colors for a wedding at Stoudt's Black Angus

Bridesmaids wore dark blue and carried bright colorful bouquets of Sweet Akito Roses, Hot pink Motso Moto Asters, Orange Babe Spray Roses, Bright Blue Volkenfreiden, yellow Waxflower and purple Alstromeria.   Designed in color groupings rather than scattering them throughout so each flower  is highlighted.
Bride's Bouquet was made of hot pink mini Callas, Mango mini Callas and yellow Sun City Spray Roses.
The Head Table for 16 was a large rectangle.  Three pilsner vases, (very fitting for a brewery), had Curly Willow branches, orange Lilies, Volkenfreiden, and green & yellow Spider Mums.  Cylinder vases with floating candles and purple Hyacinth bean, and lots of votives filled the length of the table.
Two kinds of Guest table centerpieces .....
Purple Hyacinth Beans were added for a bit of interest to the low centerpieces.  Oranges and limes added to at the Groom's request. 
Fun House Mirrors are in the entry to the  venue.  What a hoot, especially for those that have had a few drinks!  Jessie and I looked like munchkins with cone-heads!
Strands of crystal beads with light pink spray roses attached for a backdrop hung at the ceremony area.
Five  Grandmothers carried a tiny colorful bouquet.  Colorful handmade programs made it very personal.
~Congratulations to Tabitha and Jason.  Wishing you a lifetime of blessings and love.~
