Marnie & David - Winter White Wedding

Marnie and David are from Alexandria, Virginia. Since their many friends and relatives are scattered all over the country, they wanted somewhere that was centrally located to their loved ones, not far from an airport, and easily accessible. The lovely Blue Bell Country Club fit the bill, and had the added bonus of the Normandy Farms hotel right across the street. You might say that Blue Bell, PA was the site of their destination wedding. Marnie and David added so many wonderful details to their winter white and gold wedding. In the foyer, they set up golden framed pictures of many generations of their families all beautifully labelled with the couples' names. We added mercury glass candles and hydrangea to the credenza. It was a lovely, romantic welcome to all of their guests.

Ivory roses, each with a pearl inside of it, and white mini calla lilies made up the beautiful, elegant bridal bouquet. David wore a matching calla lily as his boutonniere. Marnie's attendant carried a bouquet of ivory roses and brown hypericum berries. The groomsman also wore ivory roses. The rabbi, a friend of Marnie and David's, performed the ceremony.

The ceremony took place underneath our chuppah. We filled the bases with lots of white flowers and seeded eucalyptus. Marnie supplied the beautiful crocheted chuppah cover.

The placecard arrangement consisted of all white flowers, brown eucalyptus, and brown curly willow. Gold marbles filled the base.

White hydrangea with gold beading in gold mercury glass were placed on cocktail tables.

Candle based centerpieces on gold charges with decorative pine cones, leaves, and marbles were placed on beautiful patterned runners that Marnie purchased. These alternated with cylindrical centerpieces filled with clear "icy" acrylics . The all white flowers surrounded a sparkley, gold pillar candle and sat on gold overlays on black tablecloths. The overall look of the two centerpieces was really beautiful. And Marnie and David did an amazing job with their table names and pictures of Washington DC landmarks.
