Emily and Brad's Wedding

When choosing a wedding date...Emily and Brad had a slight difference of opinion.  Emily wanted a winter wedding and Brad wanted to get married in the spring.  I don't think their March 6th wedding date could have been a better choice--Emily got snow on the ground and the 50 degree temperatures let all the guests know that spring was in the air!

Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Highland Park Community House.  Emily and Brad took photos before the ceremony and had their first look on the snowy grounds of the center.  They had a great group of bridesmaids and groomsmen and even before the festivities got going I knew it would be a great party!

The interfaith ceremony beautifully brought together the two families and cultures.  It was a simple service officiated by a Rabbi and a Priest who stood together under the Chuppah (Jewish wedding canopy) and explained each of the separate faiths' rituals very well so that all the guests could easily follow along.  

As soon as the ceremony ended the party began!  The guests gathered in another room while the caterers (North Shore Caterers) and I raced around flipping the room from the ceremony to reception setup.  The bridal party's personal flowers were done by JBL Designs (LOVED the baby's breath bouquets!), but Emily did all her own centerpieces of ribbon-wrapped vases filled with lemons and surrounded by votives.  With the navy tablecloths, they turned out beautifully!

After dinner and a series of moving speeches, Max from Style Matters DJs kept the dance floor packed for the entire night!  

It was a fantastic wedding and I know Em and Brad went away glowing!  Congrats, you two!
