Tara + Phillip 05.03.08

Tara and Phillip had so many unique details to their wedding; I would never include them all in my blog (it could go on for days)! I knew it was going to be special when I arrived at her mothers’ home and there was a bride and groom paper dolls in their mailbox to greet me! Her invitation arrived in a box with silk roses and those same roses were incorporated into her flower girls gown and hair AND her mothers gown. Tara was radiant in her Pnina Tornai gown from Kleinfeld Bridals in NYC which also was adorned with silk roses. She had custom tuxes made for her pet boxer and her little infant nephew (check out his little black shoes)! Tara had a special cake topper made for her husband Phillip who is a hockey player and a wine connoisseur. I loved the hockey field grooms cake! Her reception was at the historic Morris House Hotel in Philadelphia. The lush flowers and décor were by the always amazing Beautiful Blooms. Check out how beautiful the gazebo was adorned with apple blossoms. After the cocktail hour the couple even had a dove release!

    This was another fun one to work on with you Marie. I love the antique vintage color palette. It was so much fun doing the long table runner of flowers!
    Thanks for capturing the beauty.
