Mr. and Mrs. Malone - 10.22.11

How do I even start this one?  These two are incredible apart and even more so together.  Saturday was an absolute joy for our team and a wedding we certainly won't be able to forget.  I met Shira and her mother, Cathi, in March and had so much fun working with them to create an elegant, romantic (with minimal rustic touches) evening for everyone invited.    


To start the day, Shira met her groom on the canal downtown.  They had a perfect moment...


They got to enjoy some time with their bridal party taking more shots downtown before the ceremony with their amazing photographer - Soda Fountain (highly recommended!).




It was hugely important to Shira and Jarrod that they keep their ceremony intimate and somewhat small.  So, for their traditional Jewish ceremony, they hosted only close family and friends on the 48th story of Chase Tower at D'Amore



The decor for the ceremony was so quaint and meaningful.  The shelves dividing the room were filled with votives and old family photos.  The chuppah, created by The Empty Vase, was so lovely and provided the perfect place for Shira and Jarrod to exchange vows.  The hanging candles were our FAVORITE touch (besides the view and vows!)!




Jarrod was so excited to watch his bride come down that aisle...


Their kiss was definitely memorable, as well as the breaking of the glass!


After the ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as more family and friends began to arrive to enjoy the bigger celebration.  

As guests were invited to dinner, they were really starting to take notice of the stunning lights of the city below.  The feel in the room was so warm and beautiful!


Touches of eggplant, deep grays and whites/tans were seen throughout the night in all the decor.  The centerpieces were designed by The Empty Vase and each table looked a little different from the rest.  

The cake was provided by Todd by Thomas.  He did a great job at incorporating the same pattern that was used on Shira and Jarrod's invitations. The special cake topper was created by a very close family friend.  It was made to resemble the couple as closely as possible.  The groom even had tiny little glasses!


After dinner, the couple enjoyed their first dance under the hand-crafted branch/candle/garland chandelier installed by The Empty Vase.  It was so stunning!
Of course, they also enjoyed the traditional Jewish song and dance - Hava Nigila!  
Before guests departed for the night - they were welcomed to some local flavor!  The favor table was set up underneath the chuppah covered with "Indy Style" popcorn from Just Pop In.  Cari from Interprintations provided all the paperie for the night - and the sign for the favor table read "Please enjoy some Popcorn Covered with Love!"  How great is that backdrop of the city?!

The night was really terrific and we want to send our warmest, biggest congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Malone! Mazel Tov!

We love you both and know we will stay in touch!

Boldly Yours,
Lori
