Lori + Gregory

Lori and Gregory were married on Saturday at The Suburban Club by Rabbi Andrew Busch. Lori worked with a designer on Etsy to create invitations with a bird motif that was subtly carried through the wedding. She found fabulous paper from Paper Source with the perfect little birdies that were used for the programs, escort cards, and even the guest book backdrop. More on the oh-so-cute backdrop later.

Jeanne from Blue Sage floral created a blue fabric chuppah - one that matched Lori's shoes perfectly. She used gerber daisies accented in the same orange that Gregory had on his suspenders. Lori and Gregory are both into bright fun colors which was clearly evident in the entire wedding celebration. The linens from Table Toppers in bright orange and pink were accented by orange chivari chairs and pink cushions from Party Rental for the cocktail hour.

After the cocktail hour, guests moved into the beautiful ballroom where the tables were dressed in more muted color linens and bright floral centerpieces. The flowers were each pinspotted by Perkins Event Lighting, which made the colors even more vibrant.

The cake was just what Lori requested, the cake that her mother made for each celebration growing up. The couple cut into the marble cake late in the evening while guests were treated to delicious desserts and a fun ice cream bar.

The crowd was on the dance floor all night thanks to the sounds of Spectrum. The entire day was well documented by Amy Deputy and Black Tie Video. We'll be sure to post Amy's pictures when they are ready. We can't wait to see photos of Lori's traditional lace gown mixed with the bright pops of color.

The guest book screen was a huge hit. Lori and Gregory made a folding screen of doors and covered the doors with the same bird motif paper. We strung ribbons across the screen and guests clipped their well wishes on the ribbon. It was full of love and congratulations by the end of the evening. Guests were also treated to a photo booth area with Amy Deputy. A bright fabric was hung as a backdrop and everyone mugged for the camera.

Many thanks to Rita Feinberg and the entire staff at Suburban. The service was wonderful and the food got rave reviews. It is always wonderful when a couple can be married at a Club that is like a second home for the whole family.
Congratulations Lori and Gregory!
