This may be a Halloween wedding, but the only thing scary is how scary beautiful it is. Without cheesy jack-o-lanterns or an overwhelming presence of orange and black décor, Chill Weddings created a sophisticated affair with a romantic fall color palette, warm candlelight and a dessert bar meant for Trick-Or-Treating. See it all from Emily Wren Photography in The Vault!
From The Bride…When we first began planning our big day we didn’t have a particular location or venue in mind, but knew we wanted to find an untraditional, intimate setting that reflected our personality and aesthetic taste — a venue that was elegant-rustic, romantic and cozy. We chose POMME in Radnor, Pennsylvania, near where Jodi grew up. The venue is secluded in a beautiful, lush and landscaped setting, and for a Halloween wedding, created the perfect, colorful backdrop for capturing our special day.
The ceremony was set in the round under a suspended floral arrangement creating a very personal setting for Jodi and Graham to be married by their best friend from childhood and college, Lizzy Ott. Following, a rustic, indoor/outdoor gazebo offered an ideal setting for cocktail hour, and allowed our guests to enjoy the romantic pond with a nesting family of swans. The focal point of the reception space was a decorative fireplace, which helped inspire the overall vision. We chose a soft and romantic color pallet of pale pinks, sage greens and whites/creams with a slight pop of navy/purple, to contrast the dark, rich seasonal colors outside. The room’s intimacy made it easy to decorate with warm and personal touches like copper candlelight, picture frames, marquee lights, and varying floral decor at each table. Our floral designer Papertini really understood our vision from day one — from the beautiful, hanging floral arrangement that served as a centerpiece for our ceremony, and loosely-shaped organic bouquets, to surprising accents like an antique, industrial bar and salvaged wooden doors which displayed the guests’ tablecards — every element was carefully considered.
Another important aspect of the wedding was the menu. We wanted to create something different from the traditional wedding fare, and a menu that reflected our favorite cuisine. We worked with the Chef from Peachtree & Ward to develop a Mexican-inspired offering that combined a surf & turf plated dinner with family style sides like Mexican street corn and fried yucca tots, producing a fun and casual atmosphere.
The final element for us was ensuring our guests were on the dance floor all night long! Our brand EBE’s Barcelona, created a lively, party atmosphere and overall, an unforgettable evening.
