Kelly and Jason - A Victorian Affair
Kelly and Jason chose to hold their inside and outside wedding at a wonderful old Victorian mansion located in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. The "theme" of this wedding was "Leather and Lace" - think Fleetwood Mac - with a color palette of black, white, and purple. Kelly's mom, and my friend, Robin worked so hard to make Kelly's wedding perfect with so many personal touches. And her wedding gown was drop dead gorgeous - as was Kelly. I had the best time working on this wonderful wedding.
Kelly carried a tear-drop shaped bouquet made up of peacock feathers, eggplant Moon carnations, purple anemones, and white mini gerber daisies with a black center. I added crystals and greens throughout the flowers. Jason's boutonniere was made up of three stephanotis backed by a peacock feather.
Another Victoria piece that I used in the mansion was this replica made up of black wire and test tubes. This is one of my favorite personal containers. We also draped strands of pearls and hung crystals from it for Kelly's wedding.
I end this blog with the fabulous caricature my friend Robin had made for Kelly and Jason. What a clever idea and so well done! Thank you Robin, Kelly, and Jason for letting me be a part of your wonderful day! May you celebrate many, many, many more. Mazel Tov!
