Today, I finally got to feast my eyes on my June 15th couple's photos! The photographer, Airlangga Wattimena did a magnificient job and like most event planners who anxiously await snapshots of their work, I felt like a child on Christmas Day.
Soon after I first met Shirley, I tagged her my Fairy Tale Flutter bride because she requested the sweetest theme of butterflies and fairies. I first put together an inspiration board and the ideas continued to flow from there.
To adhere to her theme tastefully we constructed a garden theme and developed a cohesive ambiance throughout. For example, crystal butterflies were strewn through her bouquet of apricot and ivory roses and delicate paper butterflies were positioned along the ceremonial arch as well as in all floral arrangements and centerpieces. The bride wore a gorgeous lace sheath with a custom mantilla. In her hair she wore a sparkling butterfly headband by Giancarlo Miranda (plus the matching bracelet cuffed her wrist). Pink Cake Box provided the miniature wedding cakes gifted to each guest at the end of the night, and of course sugar butterflies sat atop each of the gorgeous confections. Finally, we decided to make the wedding cake a show-stopper, so the 4-tier beauty was iced with chocolate to compliment the latte/brown/blue color scheme.
The wedding was lovely ... a romantic Sunday-afternoon celebration held at The Madison Hotel in Morristown, New Jersey.
