The day of the wedding was simply magical. A beautiful May Saturday, late in the afternoon when my youngest Son married his love. The months of planning every last detail with the reward of celebrating the start of their new lives together was joyous. The wedding design was classic black and white with a bit of glitz that my Daughter-in-Law added in for some glamour. Drexel Hall built in the early 1900’s was the ballroom venue and created the perfect backdrop for the happy celebration.
The first plan was to use silver chiavari chairs with black cushions for the seating until we found out (just 10 days before the wedding) that the ballroom did not allow outside chair rentals. The chairs provided by the venue were industrial lawn chair plastic and not exactly what we had envisioned. So instead we decided to cover the chairs with white slips and add a black satin sash to them. I actually think the covered chairs turned out even better!
For the cocktail hour, I created a “Love is Sweet” candy buffet in the upstairs balcony. Simple glass containers embellished with rhinestone trim and ribbons to hold the matching black and white candy.
We made much of the Wedding decor ourselves including the Men’s boutonnieres crafted using small black and white feathers decorated with a tiny rhinestone.
My Son never looked happier and I’m sure it was because of this beauty~
