Emily & Dan - Hershey Happiness

Emily is truly a gifted artist. She wanted her wedding to be fun and "different", so she designed a fun lounge with lighting, great food, furniture, and her artwork. The people at Hershey Mills Country Club were so gracious and worked so well with Emily and Dan to make their wedding everything they wanted it to be. Wedding colors of fuscia, black, and accents of orange were used. I can't tell you how nice it was to work with such a creative lady.

Emily carried a bouquet of Malibu roses with a collar of painted aspidistra leaves. Black pins were inserted into the roses. Black is a difficult color to bring into personal flowers, but I think we managed pretty well. Dan's boutonniere had a bit of "black" leaves to match.

Bridesmaids carried bouquets of fuscia roses each with a pearl in the center. Groomsmen's boutonnieres matched.

I made two pink, white, and black topiaries for Emily and Dan's ceremony. They were later brought to the country club and placed on the dance floor.

Emily and I both worked on this light up "lamp" which was used on the placecard table. I used crystal beading and fresh roses inside the vase which was lit up by two carefully placed lights. Emily painted the lampshade to match her wedding colors. She also did the small painting sitting on the table.

Sofas, tables, and other seating were brought in to give the ballroom more of a "lounge feel". Emily painted two large paintings that she displayed on easels in the room. She did such a wonderful job.

Emily painted small canvasses for the tables where I placed small flower arrangements. Some of her tables lit up! They looked fabulous.

How cute is this cake! Emily left no detail neglected.
