Dance Floor during a cHill Wedding

I love to dance.  Most of my clients love to dance.
Christine and Mike were no expection.  And the best part? Their wedding dance floor was packed all night!  See the time lapse video below by the Remixologists:

If you see spots of yellow, that's me running around.

As Christine put it the night of their wedding, their wedding was fun like their senior prom but with booze!

Papertini's Christmas Tree

Back in November, I went out to the Hyatt at the Bellevue to help my dear friend Tanti Lina, of Papertini.  Tanti was invited to design a holiday tree, which would later be donated for an auction.  All proceeds went to the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Papertini's tree was festive but elegant, yet children would appreciate it too!  Tanti snuck in a some treasure around the tree which corresponds to a story in a book Tanti created.  It was such an innovative idea for a tree that Daisy Martinez, celebrity chef and also the Festival of Trees auctioneer, went on and on about her tree.  She loved it!  As did lots of other people, especially the people who bid and won Papertini's tree!

Thanks Tanti for inviting me to come and help you decorate your fabulous tree!  It was fun to attend the cocktail party and watch people bid on it. I hope they enjoyed the tree this Christmas!

We may be called cHill Weddings...

But Miss cHill here does not like the cold!  It has been a chilly winter so far here in Philadephia with very little sunshine.  So I will be taking a mini break to Florida to soak up some Vitamin D.

I will be out of the office from December 17-21 and be back on the 22nd.  Feel free to shoot me an email or leave a message on my main line (267.270.2774) to get in touch with me while I'm gone.

Stay tuned for some great things to come for end of 2010 and 2011!  We have a new website in the works, a couple of booking specials, and recaps of some butt-kicking weddings from this past year. 

In the meantime, you can read what I suggest for Welcome Bags in the latest Brides Philadelphia Magazine!
