Welcome

Welcome to the spring/summer edition of Dream Weddings magazine. Spring always inspires change and we’ve done a little “editing” of our own – hopefully, you noticed the magazine’s new logo. What’s inside? A little bit of everything, with the cohesive element being fashion – or the lack of it! As you will discover, we’ve included a photography trend that’s now on the radar in Central Pennsylvania – boudoir photography! Yes, it’s daring and a bit provocative, but I guarantee a groom would much rather have a sensual photograph of his beloved than yet another pair of cufflinks.

to learn how your wedding could be featured on a future episode of Central Pennsylvania’s first wedding-reality show, Dream Weddings, which airs on WGAL-8.

Speaking of themes and concepts, we’ve included four real weddings that beautifully demonstrate how couples are incorporating that key factor – personality – into their big days. This issue’s weddings range from elegant to country chic. Hopefully, you’ll be able to tweak an idea or two and make them your own. I’d also encourage you to utilize the directory that is contained in the magazine. Central Pennsylvania is fortunate to have so many amazing vendors and professionals who can make your bridal dreams come true.

The color factor also extends to the reception. Use your favorite color to convey your personality through linens, lighting, floral design, signature drinks, china/glassware and the cake. The details are what your guests will remember and hopefully the two vignettes that were photographed by Katy Trefry, with Lauxmont Farms as a backdrop, will inspire you to dream big. 54

This isn’t to say that today’s weddings are devoid of color. Pops of color can be incorporated into a wedding through floral design, accessories and shoes. The groom and his groomsmen can add to the color story via ties and even socks. Pantone’s color of the year – Emerald (17-5641) is a perfect example. While it would be overpowering as a color story for attendants’ dresses, it would create the wow factor through shoes, etc. A little bit goes a long way!

But, fashion doesn’t stop with the bride. Her attendants complete the picture. Here, there’s a new trend emerging. Instead of eye-popping colors, brides are now selecting more neutral palettes – champagne, chocolate, gray and even black – that not only provide a more sophisticated look, but lend themselves to reuse, as such dresses can be used for other occasions … and not scream bridal!

16 -

��

Now, let’s talk fashion. No matter the theme or concept, there’s always a fashion element involved with a wedding. It seems as if a woman begins dreaming about her wedding gowns as soon as she leaves the womb! And, rightly so – it’s the most important dress she will ever wear. For a bride, a wedding equates to her Oscar moment. The first question everyone asks is what and who she is wearing. You’ll see some just-off-the-runway looks in this issue.

SILHOUETTES TO FLATTER EVERY FIGURE

Mermaid

If you have an hourglass figure, this is the style for you! The fit contours to the body from the chest to the knee area and then dramatically flares out. However, it’s a bit restrictive for dancing the night away.

sweEtheart

X

A variation of the Straight neckline, the Sweetheart dips in the middle, creating a heart-shaped design that’s especially complementary to brides with fuller busts.

goddEss

The updated version of empire styling is perfect for more casual affairs (a beach wedding, perhaps), as the preferred fabric – chiffon – flows from under the bustline to provide an ethereal look. This style is a good choice for tall, slender or petite brides.

portrait

Like the Scoopneck, it covers the shoulders, but over the bust it takes a Sweetheart shape. A good choice for brides with fuller chests.

trumpet

You might call this style a marriage of Mermaid and A-Line, as it hugs the torso and then flows outward at mid-thigh, (making it less restrictive than the Mermaid). It’s a perfect style for those with hourglass figures.

straiGHt

Simple and clean, the Straight neckline is commonly seen on strapless gowns. The style complements brides with small chests and shoulders.

ball gown

Cinderella defines this fairy-tale look that begins with a fitted bodice/waistline and ends with a full skirt. Crinolines provide the signature pouf. The style complements nearly every shape; the only exception is the petite bride, whose stature may be overwhelmed by the full skirt.

v-neck

This flattering neckline – a good choice for B or C cups – can be as demure or daring as you want. It’s also a style that lends itself to sleeves.

sheath

The clean lines of this classic shape lend themselves to weddings of every style. It’s the finishing touches (lace, bling, ruching etc.) that make it traditional, formal, retro or modern. It’s a good choice for tall, slender or petite brides.

scoopneck

This U-shaped neckline flatters brides with all types of figures.

A-Line

The “A” says it all – the gown follows the shape of the torso and then gracefully angles out at the waist. While this shape is perceived to complement any figure, it’s especially good for petite (the unbroken lines can make a woman appear taller) and full-figured (hips become less noticeable) brides.

Y

our wedding gown is the most memorable fashion statement you will ever make. Before you make your first appointment, take time to consider which silhouettes and necklines will best convey your style and flatter your figure.

Boudoir PHOTOGRAPHY

The most personal of gifts

Forget the watches, tie clips and cufflinks. Guys now want sensual – but tasteful –photographs of their brides! BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY has become a popular gift-giving trend. Now, it’s making an impact in South Central Pennsylvania! Brides are definitely talking about it. Boudoir photography could be defined as a revival of a fine-art form that took its cue from European fashion and magazine illustration of the early 1900s and became popular with photographers through the post-war years. The concept reappeared in the early ‘90s with the advent of glamour photography; of late, it has reverted to a more sensual celebration of a woman’s body.

In selecting a photographer, it’s important that you “click” with him or her in order to unleash your inner free spirit. To locate a photographer, ask friends for references, peruse bridal magazines that often have vendor directories, or do research via the Internet. Keep in mind that boudoir photography isn’t just for weddings – it’s the perfect gift for Valentine’s, birthday, anniversary and justbecause occasions. An even newer trend is couple’s boudoir photography, which is taking engagement photos to a new level!

Mixology by Elixir Craft Cocktails · Photography by Katy Trefry A wedding epitomizes a couple’s personal style. Details are what guests will remember! Here, we share an idea that can envelop a couple’s interests and the wedding’s theme, color scheme and floral selection into one memorable package – a customized cocktail. Cocktails. They are back in vogue thanks in part to James Bond, Sex and the City and Mad Men. According to Chris Chamberlain, who crafted the cocktails seen here, a renewed interest in classic cocktails began to surge about 10 years ago. “Mixology was always a part of American culture, but Prohibition nearly destroyed it,” he observes. However, the American palate has been revived. “Investigating cocktails of the past led to the creation of a new movement,” says Chris, referring to the new generation of craft cocktails. Preferring to call himself a “connoisseur of craft cocktails” (rather than the generic mixologist), Chris has created a niche for himself – in the last 18 months, he has fashioned signature cocktails for 42 weddings and 33 special events in South Central Pennsylvania. His credentials – sales rep, beverage professional and brand development specialist for Capital Wine & Spirits, not to mention 42 spirit courses and 30 certifications – take him to craftcocktail competitions (most recently in Orlando) and special events such as the Kentucky Derby (bartending alongside Bobby Flay).

He credits the wedding-cocktail phenomenon to a colleague – Jonathan Pogash, a New York-based cocktail developer and mixologist. “He spearheaded the movement in New York and New England,” Chris explains, noting that gaining the attention of Martha Stewart aided in the cause. “I realized such an opportunity existed in this area. There’s no larger event than your special day,” he continues. “You want to make it personal, unique.” In his opinion, a signature cocktail is “personal” personified as it allows you to present your style and interests during an occasion that represents the first time you will be entertaining guests as a married couple. Recognizing that this is a day unlike any other, “custom” has become Chris’s mantra: no two cocktails are the same. “I will not use the same recipe for another event – the cocktail was meant to be personal,” he notes. “It’s not a re-gifting process.” The personal touch also extends to Chris’s philosophy regarding ingredients – he likes to incorporate home-grown goodness into his cocktails, hence Central Market is a favorite destination. He also crafts his own simple syrups, oversees the maceration process and insists that garnishes be as organic and local as possible. For example, one of his creations incorporated blueberries from the garden of a bride’s grandmother. If he can’t find an exotic ingredient, he turns to a local source for help. As for classic glassware, he shops locally, oftentimes scoring great finds at vintage shops. He loves the look and feel of the classic Champagne coupe.

CREATING SIGNATURE COCKTAIL

3

1. The process starts with a meeting – Chris asks the couple to name their favorite spirits and/or cocktails. He also asks them to name spirits and/or ingredients they don’t like. 2. Once likes and dislikes are established, crafting (and naming) the cocktail involves the most important ingredient – the bride and groom. The cocktail can ultimately convey their shared interests and style. For example, for a fairythemed wedding, Chris designed a mead-andhoney-based cocktail. For thoroughly modern couples, cocktail caviar has become a hit. And for couples in love with vintage, old-school cocktails are often the inspiration. Signature cocktails can also serve as a tie-in for the wedding’s color scheme and floral selection. They can even provide an indication of where a couple will be honeymooning.

3. Glassware is important. Rental companies can provide you with an array of styles if your venue doesn’t offer what you need. And, plastic isn’t a no-no. “That’s where garnishes are really important,” says Chris. And, if you really want to set the tone, vintage barware can take the presentation factor up a notch.

1. PERFECT PEAR: Custom pear syrup and a splash of champagne 2. CITRUS GARDEN: Fresh pressed lemon sours, pink grapefruit & basil 3. COCKTAIL CAVIAR: Goji berry and blueberry mojito 4.

HEAT OF PASSION: Bombay Sapphire East, fresh lycee, homemade curacao, agave & Thai pepper

4. A signature cocktail can be budget-friendly. Chris finds that cost-conscious couples are limiting the bar menu to signature cocktails, wine and beer. He likes the concept of serving the signature cocktail during the pre-reception happy hour and reserving the wine for dinner and the beer for the remainder of the evening.

The neutral color scheme ranged from ivory to champagne to hues of brown.

Chart House in Philly. Carley went shopping and when she returned home she had so many bags she couldn’t get to her key and instead knocked on the door. That ruined Matt’s plan of awaiting her on bended knee when he heard the key. Instead, he answered the door with flowers in hand and popped the question. Classic elegance with a touch of bling. Golds and purple. Black Magic and Blue Bird (lavender) roses, dark-

purple statice and light-blue delphinium for the attandants’ bouquets and white Serenity roses, purple Tissue statice and rhinestones for Carley’s bouquet. St. Paul Lutheran Church in York. Yorktowne Hotel in York. The newlyweds danced to Lucky by Jason Miraz and Colby Caillat. Carley can’t choose just one. However, she says, “Just having everyone we truly love in one room, sharing our love, was an amazing memory in itself and is one we will have forever!” Maui. Like many newlyweds, Carley and Matt chose to forgo guest favors and instead made a donation to the American Cancer Society.
