Amy & Justin - Bling at the Ben

Amy and Justin celebrated their marriage with an outdoor ceremony at the Philadelphia Horticulture Center and a reception at The Ballroom at the Ben. Amy wanted a classic white wedding - only with lots of sparkle! Crystals, bubbles, lights, brooches, and rhinestones added the bling that brought this party to a whole other level. And it was fantastic!  Great job Amy!

Amy carried a bouquet of standard white calla lilies wrapped in white satin ribbon. I think that the brooch she choose adds the perfect touch to her flowers. Justin's boutonniere was a white mini-calla lily.
I used white roses and white-mini calla lilies for the bridesmaids' bouquets. Groomsmen wore a matching white rose.
Moms carried a single white calla lily decorated with ribbon and a brooch.
Corsages were made with little white spray roses and pool blue ribbon. Pretty and petite.
The view at the Horticulture Center beyond the arch is spectacular. No wonder Amy wanted her ceremony here. Since I didn't want to crowd the view or interfere with the space under the arch, I created two white topiaries to "stand guard". Matching white pomanders, with either pool blue or navy blue ribbon, lined the pathway.
There are 18 cocktail tables upstairs at Ballroom at the Ben. We topped off the simple blue squares with white hydrangea.
I enhanced these amazing centerpieces with flowers that Amy's sister created for her. I can tell these were a labor of love - so much time and work went into creating these. She did an outstanding job!
With the lights dimmed, the ballroom looked drop-dead gorgeous!
For Amy and Justin's sweetheart table I filled glass squares with white hydrangea, white roses, and white mini-calla lilies. Crystals were sprinkled in between the vases to give the table some sparkle.

The beautiful classic white cake was topped off with a dome of white lisianthus.

Congratulations to Amy and Justin.  May you have many, many years of happiness and love. And Amy - any student that is on your team (with Ella) is in for a wonderful year!  You ladies are the best!!!
