Mary & Blake, A Midsummer Night's Dream...

The one thing I knew about Mary & Blake from day one – that this couple was totally, immensely, in love. The more I came to know them, the more I saw that they were truly a perfect couple. They make each other stronger, happier, and they believe and support each other in every way. No matter what life threw at them during their planning – from a drop-out bridesmaid to multiple car accidents to having to change their wedding date entirely (!) – they persevered and they always made my job so much fun! When their wedding day came, I was honored to be there but I was also sad to know it was coming to an end. Luckily for me, I now have two more great people in my life that I can call friends.

Below are some spectacular highlights from their big day courteousy of Kevin Trimmer ( Enjoy and be inspired!

The wedding took place within Hotel Providence and Aspire. Guests were greeted by a bagpiper to pay tribute to their Irish heritage. They were informed of the day's wedding itinerary from a video we created for them; it was projected on the televisions throughout the hotel lobby and was done elegantly over their monogram. The floral bouquets consisted of fiddlehead ferns adorned with orchids.

The first look took place within the hotel's outdoor terrace. Blake and his father both wore yellow roses in remembrance of Blake's mother, it was her favorite flower.

Mary's father walked her down the aisle and also performed the ceremony.

What better transportation than a school bus for the music teacher??

The table names were names after some of the couples favorite places, real and fictional.

Since Mary is a musician, Blake surprised her with a customized ice sculpture. In turn, she surprised him with his very own customized cupcake toting the Macedonian shield - perfect for Blake, a true history buff who loves Alexander the Great. The cupcakes showcased fiddlehead ferns and were beautifully made and displayed by the Cupcake Contessa.

The entertainment and lighting was provided by George at CE DJ's who perfectly disrupted the first dance as Extraordinary Rendition Band busted in and surprised all the guests. As you can see here, the crowd ate it up! The last surprise of the night was for Mary; Blake booked our hotel room decor package so we dressed their hotel room in flowers, petals, candles & some bubbly for their first night together as Mr & Mrs.

This couple really did it right - a night full of suprises, food, festivities and fun! Congratulations again Mary & Blake, we already miss working with you!
