Samantha + Matt

Some women are just meant for the role of bride and Samantha was one of the them.  She had a fully crafted vision of her wedding day in her mind and worked tirelessly to make that vision a reality.  She designed the programs and menu cards with such care and hand made elements of the escort cards and envelope basket.

Sam's vision was an elegant fall wonderland and it came to life on Saturday.  The tables were dressed in three coordinating fall linens and accented with gold chargers from Party Rental.  The escort card table was covered in moss and featured a tree in the center.  The programs each had a handkerchief folded into them in case of wedding day tears.

The room was designed by Samantha and her mother with the help of Maria Fleischmann from Innovative Gourmet.  Maria is a close friend of the family and put so much effort into making the day special for everyone.  Innovative created a station dinner with variety that was sure to give every guest options for their dinner. Each guest took home a gourmet chocolate covered apple from Innovative - a treat they're sure to enjoy this week.

Spectrum started the party with this planners very favorite wedding song "September" and kept the dance floor crowded all night.  The lead singers got out on the dance floor with everyone and kept everything moving throughout the night.

Joe from Joe Ennd Events gave the room life with vibrant fall color, trees, and an arbor over the sweetheart table.  The room glittered with candlelight and lighting from Accent on Events.  The cake from Sugarbakers was accented with flowers and was placed on an iron stand that Samantha's mother found in a catalog.  It was actually meant to be a garden hose holder, but worked perfectly for the cake.

Ellen from Photography by Ellen photographed the day, as well as the Bridal Shower and Rehearsal Dinner.  She's promised to send over pictures soon and we'll be sure to share them.  Video and DJ'ing was from Still Hot Entertainment.  There were video cameras everywhere throughout the night, so we're sure they captured all of the action.

Sadly, we have no pictures from the wedding.  My camera got lost in the Halloween shuffle while trying to capture a little lion during trick or treating.  Images from Ellen should be up by the end of the week!

Congratulations Matt and Sam!  Enjoy your honeymoon!
