Once in a while we wedding planners get to coordinate weddings for family members, a sister or cousin gets married and then they refer us to their other sibling or family member or friend. We at The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants were fortunate enough to plan and coordinate the weddings for two sisters…in the same year!
Elisabeth and Eric, a stylish and down-to-earth couple that live in New York City, came back to this area to plan their wedding. Their stunning wedding was perfectly captured by Mantas Wright Photography. It was such a pleasure to work with Phil and Dasha as we assisted Liz and Eric with their special day!
The bride and groom made it easy on themselves and their guests: they got ready for their wedding, had their ceremony, reception, and accommodations for guests all in the same location.
Well, almost…the church was literally right across the street! After getting ready at the fabulous Hotel duPont in Wilmington, Delaware, the bride, groom, families, and guests walked across the street to First and Central Presbyterian Church for the ceremony.
Following the ceremony, they headed back to Hotel duPont for cocktails and the reception.
Their florals, by Honeybunches, were stylish and elegant with creams, purples, and silver to compliment the warm tones in the Grand Ballroom. The David Christopher Orchestra kept the guests on the dance floor all night.
The bride and groom even arranged for mini cheesesteaks and french fries to be served for a late night snack! Elisabeth and Eric completed the evening with a spectacular candy buffet for their guests to enjoy. They had a wide variety of candies in their wedding colors for the guests to package and take home.
Rebecca assisted me, so with two of our planners on site you know everything ran smoothly, and it was an absolute pleasure to coordinate Liz and Eric’s wedding and to work with Elisabeth’s family twice in one year!
All the best!
GREAT job Karen!
A lot of our weddings this past year were referrals from previous weddings we’ve done, family, bridal party or guests…. we LOVE that…
