We love couples who make sure their Big Day represents them. And this duo? Well, they did just that with a personalized elegant affair. We’re talking silver elephants, dirt cake, and plenty of creamy hues splashed throughout. With vendors like Events In The City and Holly Heider Chapple Flowers by their side, amazing things are bound to happen and luckily Vicki Grafton captured it all right here.

From Events In The City... When meeting couples for the first time there are many attributes that you absorb and take in, making your evaluation as to how things may play out and what the complete planning dynamic may be. We were thrilled that they chose Events in the City and were ready to get started! The word that I would use to describe Marlee and Aaron was sincere. They wanted every detail to reflect who they were and what they represented, which was true and sincere love.Photography is so important and we were thrilled to work with Vicki Grafton. Marlee's color palette consisted of hue's rather then colors. There was soft ocean mist like blues and gentle buttery creams. We enjoyed mixing classic expressions with a fun and joyful beat. Nothing was a better representation of this then her invitations by Fig 2 Design. Marlee and Aaron envisioned a classically beautiful ceremony with a reception that twinkled. Keeping her florals designed by Holly Chapple; soft and creamy set the perfect tone and highlighted our stunning bridal party.

When guests entered the reception they were greeted with a mix of long king tables that encourage a communal and comfortable dining experience and classic rounds. As they were seated their eyes could dance off of a glass burst charger which reflected every light that it touched. The evening was complete with guests dancing under twinkling glass globes, that gave an almost al fresco experience from inside the ballroom of the Omni Shoreham. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom installed them at varying heights to allow the light to dance along with our guests. The dance floor remained packed all night long due to the musical stylings of Free Spirit. Additional personal touches found through out the event include a giant silver Jumbo at the escort card table to represent their alma mater Tufts University. In lieu of a wedding cake they chose to share dirt cake, which is how Aaron had celebrated every momentous event in his life. At the end of the night Marlee and Aaron were smiling ear to ear and were no further from each other then a hands reach away; just the way we like to see our newlyweds!
