Andrea and Vince’s Romantic Castle Wedding

What a gorgeous winter wedding this was last January at Thornewood Castle! Katie at Red Sparrow Photography did a beautiful job of photographing this sweet couple and all of the dreamy little details that made this intimate wedding so special! We had some yummy hors d'oeuvres tray passed after the ceremony and then there was a royal seated dinner followed by dessert from NY Cupcakes.  The colors were just perfect with napkins and runners from Express Linen Rentals to match!

Jillian and Michael – February 2012

What a beautiful late winter wedding. Jillian and Michael were married at Clise Mansion last February and Kristen Marie Photography shared these sweet and lovely images with us,  perfectly capturing this adorable couple and their special day. They had a gorgeous modern winter color scheme of slate grey with accents of cranberry and teal, and all the desserts were hand made by family and friends!
