A White Christmas Wedding Reception

  Rebecca and Oscar met with me in the summer of  '09 to talk about their vision for their December wedding.  After attending the  'Best of Weddings' show at the Lancaster Convention Center they hired our entire design team! It was great working together on that show, and so fun working together again on Oscar and Rebecca's wedding.
  The ceremony took place at St. Joseph's Catholic Church.  A truly beautiful historic landmark church in downtown Lancaster. 
  The bride's bouquet was all white Siberian Lilies, and the bridesmaids carried blue Hydrangeas with white Dendrobium Orchids. 
  The pew markers were white Orchids and Italian Ruscus which was later taken to the reception and made into a large hanging snowflake for over the center of the dance floor. Large white Poinsettias surrounded the altar.  (Sorry- I have no images of any of the above described.)

Vendor team was:  Shumaker, pdt. for lighting,  Special Occasions for linens,  Renee Connors of Designs by Renee for their stationary, Kris and John McElligott of KMPhotography, Derek Dienner of Lavon Films, Martine Cajas of House of Clarendon for their wedding cake,  DJFreez for the music, and ATB for the flowers and decor. What a treat to also be included as guests.  We had a great time enjoying all our labors of love throughout the evening.

Silver trees were the centerpieces for the 3 round bridal party tables.  The bases were embellished with glass bead garlands and snow.

The beautiful pipe and drape with blue lights and garlands twinkled behind the Bride and Groom's elevated sweetheart table.
Glass bead garlands with white Spider Mums created an icy-snowy sparkle effect to their table.  Silvery white linens draped to the floor was done by Claudia of Special Occassions.
Crushed ice in footed cylinder vases with White Birch Branches, Baby's Breath and crystals for some of the guest tables.

All guest tables had cylinder vases in various sizes with snowflakes inside and floating candles.

Personalized stemless wine glasses filled with kisses for every guest.

Lights and crystals on beautiful silver trees.

Eiffel Tower vases with snowy clouds of Baby's Breath for some guest tables were lit with blue lights as well as pin- spot lighting by Shumaker, pdt.
The atmosphere was magical. Eden Resort did a first class job serving delicious wedding fare. 
 DJFreez kept the dance floor packed all night long. 
What an awesome celebration of love on a very cold, rainy, windy winter night.
Best wishes for a lifetime of love and happiness to Oscar and Rebecca.  Thank you for the privilege of being a part of your beautiful  'First Day' of marriage.
Special thanks to my wonderful 'Team Beautiful' for an outstanding job, and to Jessie for taking pictures for this blog post.
Merry, Merry Christmas to all!!!
