From cHill Weddings… Christine and Mike were wed in downtown Philadelphia in a new chic boutique hotel called Hotel Palomar. A venue that is best suited for a smaller wedding, their 70 count guest list was perfect. Christine and Mike knew what was important to them, and photography was on the top of their list. And they did the right thing and hired Jesse and Whit of Our Labor of Love Photography! The Smilebooth was set up for the reception and it ended up being a hit.
Their ceremony was exceptionally memorable because children were running around, giggling, and crying. For the first time, I witnessed a couple who didn’t care! And let it roll off their shoulders because they loved kids too, and they were all very much part of the wedding. Skype was a great tool for the wedding, for Mike’s grandparents who couldn’t attend the wedding. They watched the ceremony, heard all the toasts, and even got to dance with some guests as a cousin worked the dance floor with the laptop.
But what I loved the most were Christine and Mike’s detailed paper products. I especially loved their placecards – which were hand calligraphied paper flowers that we placed on each champagne toast glass. For escort cards, guests received a colored button that lead them to their seats, welcomed by a candy bar wrapped with the same colored paper. It was a fun, intimate affair with awesome music provided by the Remixologists.
