Hope everyone had a great Christmas!!!  I have been digging my way out…not the snow (that is the hubby’s job), but digging my way out of the sea of presents my two lucky little girls got.  A few days ago one of our sweetest brides of the year e-mailed us these pictures and I couldn’t wait any longer to share them. Casey and Travis were truly such a gorgeous couple and so sweet to boot!  I remember delivering this wedding, it really stood out to me because it was one week after my grandfather passed away and I found so much peace in working on this wedding.  It reminded us both that Poppop was so happy that we were pursuing our dream job. I loved the flowers, I loved working at The Chelsea, and I loved seeing the joy on Casey and her mom’s faces when we delivered the bouquets. Doing this wedding was healing to me…and that is a true testament to how much I love this job. This was the first time we had done a wedding at The Chelsea Hotel in Atlantic City and I was blown away, not only by the beauty of the hotel but by how kind and helpful the staff was. It was a pleasure to work with them and I really look forward to doing more weddings there. I would highly recommend The Chelsea to any bride that is looking for a wedding reception at the Jersey Shore. It was modern, the staff really went above and beyond to make every detail perfect, and you just can’t beat the location and vibe! Ryan Morey of RHM Photography was the photographer for the day and I am in awe of some of the amazing photos he got of the day.

I love a fun color palette like this one. Casey’s bridesmaids wore watermelon pink gowns so we did lots of yellow with accents of the pink, white and black to keep it modern. The bride’s bouquet featured yellow mini calla lilies, anemone, succulents, yellow freesia, white dahlias, craspedia, yellow roses and pink spray roses.

Another close up of Casey’s bouquet.  I loved all the shapes and textures in this bouquet. We accented her bouquet wrap with the lace from her mother’s gown, a very meaningful touch.

Casey and her bridesmaids on the boardwalk.  I have no idea how the photographer did it but I love colors in this photo.

Such a beautiful group of girls!

Casey and Travis, aren’t they a cute couple!

Close up of Travis’s boutonniere.  Craspedia, freesia, and a small succulent made the perfect bout.

On the beach…this looks like a painting!  LOVE.

Pictures like this would make any bride want a beach wedding.

Casey and Travis were married in a church but wanted to bring in some of the fun color aspects of their day.  We did these pomanders of yellow button mums and pink pearl pins to hang on every other pew.

Look how cute it turned out!!!

At the reception we were so excited to use these tall black vases.  We added a crystal chandelier and dozens of yellow oncidium orchids…the final look was stunning!

Love these orchids in this room!

For the other centerpiece style we used our shorter black vases filled with yellow roses and yellow spider mums.  We linked the vases together with bear grass and added some watermelon pink ribbon and of course a touch of bling.  I love spider mums, they are not often thought of for wedding flowers but they can looking so modern when used in mass like this.

Here is a shot of the yellow roses showing the vase accented with the pink ribbon and a rhinestone.

The pomanders from the church were brought back to the reception and placed on these silver platters to decorate the bar and cocktail tables.

One final shot off the overall room. Again I can not say enough good things about The Chelsea, this hotel really is stunning!

Casey and Travis – thank you so much for letting us be a part of your wedding day.  We truly enjoyed every aspect of your wedding and wish the both of you all the best in your future together.  We are so grateful for all of the kind recommendations you are sending our way too, keep ‘em coming! High fives to Ryan from RHM Photography for a job well done too!
