Angela and Matt get married at the Downtown Club!

This past weekend, I came home from a wedding with this...

Yes, that is a tree, or part of a tree, in the front passenger seat of my car. This is the "most random thing I brought home from a wedding." But we'll get to that later.

It was early 2008 that I first met Angela and Matt, who were both third year law students back then. They had just gotten engaged and were about to book a venue, and somewhere along the line, they decided they needed a wedding coordinator! Almost two years later, their wedding day finally arrived, and the day could not have gone any better.

Please do not mind my iphone images. The photographer was the great Jeremy Evans Thomas, and I will recap again once the images are processed. Until then, please try to enjoy my photos which do not do their wedding any justice whatsoever.
The ceremony took place at the Arch St Meetinghouse where Jewish wedding ceremony components were integrated into their otherwise nondenominational ceremony. Their friend, Karl, who was ordained online, was a great officiant.

Whimsical Welcomes set up the chuppah and pew flowers.
I remember as Tasha and I rolled out their aisle runner, we were caught off guard by the monogram on the aisle runner. We had no idea! It was beautiful.
The weather man promised scattered thunderstorms, and I worried that my no-rain-on-wedding-day streak would finally come to an end. But the weather gods must love cHill Weddings because it barely drizzled after the ceremony, allowing Angela and Matt to walk to their reception venue and get portraits along the way.

After the ceremony, cHill Weddings headed over to the Down Town Club, where we were greeted by Kelly and staff. What a great team of people to work with (and food was aplenty and delicious)!

So here's the beautiful tree that ended up in my car.

Whimsical Welcomes created this escort card centerpiece. It was so unique, we loved it! Their initials were carved into the tree, and adorned with two small pomanders.

Angela made these cute leaf escort cards. You can open them up, and inside was your table assignment. Guests loved them.

The escort card table also had the Adesso Photo album and two Polaroids. Bree, the intern, and I manned these and took picutres of guests as they came off the elevators. Guests loved looking at all the polaroids! And I think Angela and Matt will forever love having these cute images of all their guests. *

Angela and Matt had 4 different type of centerpieces:

It was great working with Angela and Matt. They brought me in as their Day of Coordinator, but since we met so early on, I feel like we've been working together forever! I was happy to refer them to some of my favorite vendors.

Glad you like our tree! I've made a couple of others, but this could be the last one until another tree blows down in my yard. What are you going to do with it now? Just wondering what happens to them after a wedding - Leslie
