Hope & Adam’s Vintage Chic Wedding

Hope and Adam were married at the beautiful Peter Allen House. Hope did not miss one little detail in her planning and put together the most stunning wedding. It looked like it came right out of a wedding magazine. Starting with the the bureau she decorated. Guests were invited to select a tag and write their happy wishes.

After the guest filled in the blanks on the vintage tag, they were asked to tie it to a wooden ladder next to the bureau. The note in the frame on the bureau requested the advice from their friends as they climbed the ladder of life (click the photo to enlarge to tag). The adorable flower pot of lavender even had a strip of fabric tied to it with their names printed in it.

Catering, florals, wedding coordination and event design were provided by the talented team at C&J Catering. Everything looked just amazing.

The sweetheart table was so cute. I loved the shabby chic, vintage and romantic look of the whole vignette.

The sweetheart table had a beautiful tray of tiny vases in various colors with pretty flowers in them. Champagne on ice and like I said all the details were fabulous.

The escort card display was so pretty. Guests names were written on purple tags attached to a fabric sachet of lavender with Hope and Adam’s names and wedding date printed on them.

The framed note for the guests said, Find you seat and take some time to smell the lavender. How cute!

Hope and Adam were engaged in Maine, so in honor of that, they had a lobster basket with candy lobsters lolipops for the guests to enjoy. The centerpieces and DIY table numbers were just perfect for the look of the reception.

They even had doggie treat favors from their dogs 🙂

The wedding cake was a buttercream covered cake. It was a white cake with raspberry buttercream filling. Delicate scrolling and pearls decorated with cake along with the beautiful fresh flowers. I just love ranuculus. Melissa Pearl with C&J Catering went above and beyond and refinished the vintage vanity that the cake was placed on. I may have to borrow that sometime 🙂

I stayed with the cake like it was my baby because it was about 98 degrees outside. After all the photos were taken and guests got to take a peak at it after they entered the tent, I put it in the caterers refrigerated truck until cake cutting time. Just a tip, if you have an outside wedding on a hot day or humid day, make sure you have a plan. Either cut the cake early or keep it refrigerated until the cake cutting. The last thing you want is a melted cake.

Hope surprised Adam with a groom’s cake too. He’s a huge Phillies fan and was so excited when he saw it. It was red velvet with cream cheese filling.

Like I said, Hope did so much herself in making this her dream wedding. She styled this beautiful candy display. I did the tags for her, but she did a great job with the props and design. Here mom made the pretty “sweets”bunting.

What an amazing wedding. I didn’t even post all the other details she incorcorated. You’ll have to wait and see (mattnnat) Photography‘s photos 🙂 They are so talented.

Congrats Hope and Adam!!!
