White HOT Winter WOW...Patricia and Greg get married!

December 11th was a bitter cold day...but that didn't stop the joy felt by all as Patricia and Greg took their vows and made their guests jaws drop (literally) at an insanely gorgeous winter inspired reception at il Tulipano in Cedar Grove.

Melissa met the adorable couple back in January and got the ball rolling quickly, as they wanted a 2009 winter wedding and the time was ticking away! Patty and Greg wanted a fabulous party that would knock the socks off of their friends and family. They wanted to preserve certain traditions in their culture, as the groom comes from Filipino roots and the bride from Bolivian background. We knew that the bride loved the idea of lots of white and some bling...but the groom insisted we pop in his favorite color green--it wasn't a fact, it worked out so wonderfully!

Melissa worked with them to create a design that would transform the tuscan inspired ballroom into an icy hot winter fantasyland...complete with white draping, fabulous uplighting, beautiful rentals, and some seriously amazing floral design!

The ceremony took place at St. John the Evangelist church in Orange. The bridal party looked amazing...the bridesmaids dresses were all a fabulous shade of green in different awesome POP of color for winter! Patricia was stunning in her Priscilla of Boston gown...rocking 1 of 2 hairstyles and "looks" she had that day (loved that!).
The couple headed to il Tulipano and were waiting with baited breath to see their stunning ballroom...but we made them had to be PERFECT! Melissa and Erika went over every detail to ensure this room was nothing less than perfection...and boy did it pay off! When the ballroom doors opened for our couple...a collective gasp...followed by the "Oh my GOD"s and "Wow"s that we love sooo much! Melissa, you did it again..what a transformation!
The reception was amazing...lots of love in that could feel it!
