From the Bride…The mountains have always been special to our relationship. That’s where Matt proposed and where we had a special moment talking about our hopes and dreams. At first we wanted to elope, but as time went on we wanted to have our immediate family and a few close friends. We wanting something intimate, private, secluded, and beautiful. What could be more perfect than a castle huddled in by a beautiful mountain range? Most importantly, we planned the day to spend our wedding together and inseparable because we’re so madly in love!

From La Petite Fleur, Weddings and EventsFor their summer wedding at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, Rachel and Logan collaborated with wedding design studio La Petite Fleur (LPF) to create a floral and décor plan that married their chic, garden style with their venue’s regal atmosphere.

The couple thoughtfully considered the emotion and sentiment of each detail as they planned their day— beginning with deciding to blindfold Logan for his ride from the hotel to the Cricket Club, so a true first-look could be captured by the photographer in front of family and friends! Including and honoring their families was so important that they also displayed several generations of family photos throughout the club.

A breathtaking bride, Rachel carried a romantic bouquet of garden blooms, including garden roses, sweet peas, anemones, ranunculus, peonies, spray roses, jasmine vine, and a touch of curly willow— with ivory satin-wrapped stems. And lovely in dusty lavender, the bridesmaids processed through the Cricket Club’s courtyard with bouquets of peach garden roses, scabiosa pods, café au lait dahlias, mauve astilbe, amnesia roses and mini green hydrangea, which were finished with specialty greens and twine-wrapped stems.

Rachel and Logan exchanged vows beneath a birch chuppah, which LPF draped along the top and front with asymmetrical swags of lace and floral garland, which included coral and blush peonies, peach Alejandra roses, sword fern, spray roses, bush ivy, silver dollar eucalyptus and other variegated greens.

And just as personalized hankies (for tears of joy!) greeted well-wishers at the ceremony, a truly special seating chart display welcomed guests as they entered the reception. A carefully-curated collection of vintage plates presented the seating assignments, which had been hand-lettered by Rachel’s grandmother. The plates were perched upon a moss tablescape— complete with cloches and clusters of blooms.

LPF carried the warm, romantic look of Rachel and Logan’s day through the reception with a décor plan that infused the ballroom with an unexpected majesty (a candle-lined entryway staircase), and hints of whimsy (elevated tablescapes) that were balanced by sophisticated touches (lots of gold accents).

As a focal point for the reception décor was the extra-long head table adorned with a lush garland across the front that included spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, feather willow and Queen Anne’s lace. Flanking the garland on the tabletop, were floating candles amidst a ‘hedge’ of birch bark vessels arranged with specialty greens and blooms, including green hydrangea, seeded eucalyptus, garden roses, ranunculus and spray roses.

The look and feel of the reception was significantly impacted by the floor plan, which included a variety of table shapes—dressed in light gold linens— and corresponding, varied tablescape designs. Some long dining tables were designed with elevated floral tablescapes— from which glass orbs filled with tea lights and floating blooms were suspended. Beneath the elevated, lush display was a ‘runner’ of greenery and mercury gold julep cups votives. Other long tables featured a ‘hedge’ of bloom-filled birch bark vessels, brushed gold candle holders, floating candles and mercury votives.

Square tables were also incorporated into the floor plan and were adorned with one of two coordinating tablescape styles. One tablescape featured a gold lantern atop a reclaimed wood pedestal accented with ‘trailing’ blooms, including green hydrangea, roses, spray roses and buplerum. Finishing this presentation was a trio of elements, including a petite gold mercury stand with a coordinating arrangement, and two gold pedestals of varying heights— one topped with a cascading arrangement; the other, a floating candle.

Meanwhile, other squares featured a tall, brushed gold vase with a lush, cascading arrangement of textured blooms including hydrangea, garden roses, ranunculus, spray roses and variegated greenery. A birch bark ‘folder,’ with coordinating foliage, as well as mercury gold julep votives completed the look on the tables.

From Michael and Carina Photography… We photographed Rachel and Justin’s gorgeous ballroom wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland on June 4, 2016.

This wedding is everything a glamorous wedding should be – from elegant ceremony drapery to lavish floral arrangements, a head-turning wedding gown and an exquisitely decorated ballroom. Rachel and Justin have an incredible sense of style and it shows! Stephanie Bradshaw realized their vision of a clean and elegant setting with a neutral color palette perfectly and created a cream-blush-gold wedding extravaganza.

The inner harbor of Baltimore as a backdrop for their portraits added to the urban feel of the day. A painter captured the beautiful scene throughout the day to compose a timeless image for the couple. The timelessness and romance of this wedding is sure to sweep Style Me Pretty readers off their feet!

Hurricane Joaquin Couldn’t Dampen This Wedding Day

It’s a fact that wedding days simply don’t go 100% stick-to-the-schedule, no hiccups, perfect. In fact, sometimes unexpected guests like Hurricane Joaquin threaten to crash the party. But for Marisa and Scott, the impending storms didn’t even make them flinch. Because in the end, their candlelit reception designed by Type A Society perfectly offset the weather and Laura Gordon captured every bit.

From Type A SocietyMarisa Notarnicola and Scott Wright first met during a weekend skiing at Smuggler’s Notch in Vermont. They immediately hit it off and kept in touch following their ski trip. A month later, Scott was ecstatic to find out Marisa had accepted a job offer bringing her north to New York City and significantly closer to him.

The timing was perfect for both of them. They learned quickly their values and priories were aligned– family, friends, faith and future goals. On their third date, they booked a trip to Iceland nearly 6 months away – they knew it was a little crazy but joked that they would have to stay friends until at least that trip! From that point forward they were inseparable.

Scott courted Marisa for nearly two years, and after countless adventures, he flew to Dallas to ask her father, Jim, for his daughter’s hand in marriage. A year of long-distance wedding planning, Scott entering business school, and relocating to Nashville, quickly passed and before they knew it they were hand-in-hand at the altar, surrounded by their closest friends and family.

Bride’s favorite wedding detail: Our ring bearer box! It’s a heart shaped cobalt and gold porcelain ring box – the first gift Scott bought me when we started dating.

Groom’s favorite wedding detail: Our antique shuffleboard table that we converted into a champagne bar and the bagpiper that led us outside of the church after the ceremony.

Biggest surprise of the wedding: Hurricane Joaquin became a welcomed guest at the wedding! The cold and rainy weather was completely offset by the cozy candlelight and romantic draping inside the reception tent.
