Martine's Joe Kelly Photo


Winter weddings are wonderful. Thanks to the built-in holidays such as Christmas, New Years, Mardi Gras and Valentines Day, a winter wedding can celebrate everything from family to fun to romance. On the other hand, if a garden or tropical paradise wedding is your dream, I'm sure your guests wouldn't mind escaping to warmer climes. Winter is a perfect time for destination weddings. I know as you're reading this, you are probably envisioning last year's winter weather and are thinking, "Are you crazy!" My advice is to think positive. And hire a wedding planner. Venues and vendors are more available and flexible during the winter months. For example, winter is an opportune time to hold a grand hotel wedding. Everything - cocktail party, rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception - can be held in the confines of the hotel. The bridal party will more than likely spend the weekend at the hotel, as will your out-of-town guests, making traveling in snow and ice a nonissue. And, with the hotel handling cru-

cial elements such as catering, who cares if it snows? It will only add to the fun and ambiance! However, if events are scheduled at a number of locations a wedding planner will be able to help you make alternate plans in case the weather takes a turn for the worst. Fashionistas will absolutely love what a winter wedding can entail. If you love glitz and sparkle, a winter gown allows you to go all out. If you love lace, a winter gown enables you to wrap yourself in it from head to toe. If you love the metallic look, silver or platinum is perfectly fine for a winter wedding gown. After all, why do when you can overdo! That is certainly evident in the gowns that were provided for our feature article by Cocoa Couture! Winter also enables you to add dramatic effects such as long gloves (the only season they really make sense), fur (faux, of course) scarves and jackets and jewelry. Want more drama? Back treatments are becoming a huge trend in gowns. Props can really add to the wow factor where winter wedding photography is concerned. Think fun boots, a sleigh, ice skates, whimsical signage, etc. Here's where you pray for snow: it provides a beautiful backdrop for pictures. Winter also lends itself to dark, dramatic colors or subdued tones such as silver and white (which you can enliven with pops of color). Whatever your preference, carry the hues throughout your event, starting with the invitation and continuing with the decor, linens and even the cake (which, like dresses, can

sparkle all the more). Speaking of invitations, if you're planning a holiday wedding, it's critical to get those Save the Date cards into the mail as soon as possible before friends and family begin making other holiday plans. If a winter wedding is in your future, take advantage of the bridal shows that begin to dot the calendar immediately after New Years and continue into the spring. A bridal show will provide you with the opportunity to meet vendors, gather ideas, learn about the newest trends, attend a fashion show, taste food and cake and win some very nice prizes. We've included a list of upcoming shows in this issue, plus our new timeline and checklist pages will help you stay on schedule. See you in your dreams!

RACHAEL and SHAWN Philadelphia, PA February 8, 2014


wedding in 2 parts PART 1: THE LOCAL CELEBRATION


ne of the latest trends in wedding planning is that there are no rules! Brides are planning the Dream Wedding that works best for them. This often includes destination weddings with a local celebration for friends and family that can’t travel. This style is especially popular during the winter months! Rachael and Shawn planned a glamorous local celebration at WHYY in Philadelphia (this page) for all their friends and family that could not make it to Riviera Maya the following month for their tropical nuptials (see next page). HOMETOWNS: Rachael is from Willow Street, PA and Shawn is from Franklin, VT. OCCUPATIONS: Rachael works in business development and Shawn is the owner of SoCal PF. HOW THEY MET: They met each other competing in the Tough Mudder obstacle race. FIRST DATE: Their first date was to Avalon, NJ in August of 2012. HOW/ WHERE HE PROPOSED: Knowing how close Rachael is to her mother; Shawn first

asked her permission to marry her daughter. Shawn then proposed to Rachael at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on January 5, 2013. WEDDING STYLE/THEME: Their vision was to turn this space into pure elegance and glamour. Rachael wanted everything to be modern, elegant, clean, and sophisticated with a “Sex and the City” vibe. Thanks to Martine Cajas and local Lancaster vendors, the bride and groom thought the venue and evening were an absolute dream! COLOR SCHEME: Lots of soft pinks and clean whites with a pop of grey to bring their vision of glamour to life. CAKE DESCRIPTION: Rachael and Shawn went without a cake and opted instead for a candy bar created by Martine Cajas and House of Clarendon to serve as the focal point for the venue. FAVORITE WEDDING MEMORY: The couple loved having their closest friends and family all in one location. It was an outpouring of love and memories to last a lifetime.

wedding in 2 parts PART 2: THE DESTINATION WEDDING



months after

Rachael and Shawn’s glamorous celebration in Philadelphia (see previous page), they travelled abroad to warm and sunny Riviera Maya for their destination wedding. Since there are really no rules to modern wedding planning, the wedding abroad and local celebration can also take place in any order, depending on what works best for the bride and groom, and the venues. Rachael and Shawn were able to celebrate with their loved ones AND have their Dream Wedding abroad! Poolside at Tucanas Bar at the El Dorado Royale. In Riviera Maya, the couple chose to go with a relaxed theme to highlight the natural beauty and colors of the surrounding nature and ocean. Bright

d r e a m w e d d i n g s | f a l l / w i n t e r 2 01 4 -15


fuchsia and tan. Cream and blush colored quicksand roses mixed with white peonies. The couple chose a simple and elegant round two-tiered, champagne and chocolate cake with a blush peony on the top layer. Unfortunately, the cake did not last long. After cutting the cake, Shawn threw it into the pool, creating a hilarious memory and picture for the bride and groom that they consider well worth the hefty fine! All of Me by John Legend. Rachael got teary eyed when she first heard the song since the lyrics are so true to their relationship. Shawn throwing the cake into the pool after it was cut! Cancun, Mexico.

If you are planning a destination wedding, many photographers will now travel with you! Leslie Gilbert traveled with Rachael and Shawn for their destination wedding, and also did photography for their celebration in Philadelphia.


Brianna is from Enola, PA; Joshua is from Summerdale, PA. Brianna works as a nanny, and Joshua is a student at Drexel University working on his PhD in Chemistry. They met on a hayride when Brianna was a sophomore and Joshua was a junior in High School. Brianna’s sister and Joshua’s friend introduced them, and the rest is history. They attended Joshua’s Junior Prom together in May 2006. Joshua arranged to have a photo session at Italian Lake in Harrisburg after his sister had her prom photos done. After a few snaps of the camera, Joshua got down on one knee and proposed in front of their close family. As an added bonus, they captured the whole moment on camera!

es, lanterns, wine barrels, and whitewashed doors to walk through with a casual dress code. Yellow and tan. Sunflowers for a bright pop of yellow to compliment the rustic charm. Four-tier cake, with two square and two round layers. Each tier was a different flavor and included Chocolate Peanut Butter, Apple Spice, Banana Split, and Vanilla with fresh Strawberry to entice all guests. All of Me by John Legend and Lindsey Stirling. Even though the entire reception was an absolute dream for Brianna and Joshua, the dancing really took the cake! They had so many guests join in on the dance floor, that it had to be expanded to make room for everyone! Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa in the Dominican Republic.
