A few things about the wedding as told by Aaron and Lindsay:
WHERE: Once Lindsay entered the magnificent ballroom at Lovett Hall she was blown away by it’s lore. A lore of vintage chandeliers,antique furniture,glamorous
chandeliers and even a place where presidents before had dined and danced over the years. A garden ceremony was simple, understated and very much what Lindsay and Aaron had wanted.
THEME/STYLE: Keeping with the vintage style of Lovett, the theme was aimed toward an antique affair. The tables were designed to mimic the chandeliers, the colors were chosen to complement the distressed nature of the room and the elegance was simply chosen to match Lindsay and Aaron.
BRIDE’S DRESS: After reading bridal magazines, watching television shows and knowing my style, I thought I knew the type of dress that I wanted. Dress after dress I tried on unsatisfied with the look, the style and the general feel. I kept waiting for that ahah moment, which never came, but after listening to my panel of advisors (thank you!) I tried on a dress that was not only flattering, but perfectly complemented not only me but the wedding I had imagined.
JEWELLERY/ACCESSORIES: Keeping with many different wedding traditions, during the ceremony I wore pear shaped diamond drop earrings from my late great grandmother (Bubbie) and, a star sapphire ring from my late grandfather. I was married in my Papa’s solid gold ring (borrowed), per Jewish law, and I wore an art deco diamond and sapphire bracelet given to me by Aaron’s parents. Lastly, my shoes were navy to match my bridesmaids dresses with a special bit of bling to match me!
GROOM/GROOMSMEN: Aaron, his Best Man and ushers wore semi-traditional tuxedos. Tuxedos complete with suspenders, windsor knotted Armani striped neck ties and Aaron wore a white paisley necktie complementing his Bride. The ushers kept their cool under the intense heat – and managed to keep themselves on time and out of trouble…
CAKE: Or Cupcakes were provided by Christine’s Cakes, which excellently provided several flavors for tasting. The cupcakes were given monikers for our three furry children King Izzo, Princess Layla, and the Super Sammy.
A MEMORABLE MOMENT: Our day was jam-packed with memorable moments, but without a doubt our most special moment was during my father’s speech. His poignant words were appropriate for his baby girl, but directly after the speech he turned to my husband and whispered one line…”Don’t screw it up!”
