DENISE’S MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: Clutching my dad’s arm as I walked down the aisle and looking at no one else but my husband to be who was also teary eyed! We chose to play Canon in D for the processional and we’re so happy we kept it traditional.

DENISE’S FAVORITE DETAIL: Apart from the our lovely stationery, my silk tulle dress which was so light and comfortable!  I also loved our wedding flowers – vendella roses, hydrangea and freesias.

Christie and Robert

November 18, 2011

Hi there! I have Real Wedding to share with you today. What I love most about our Betsywhite brides is that they’re all so unique – although two customers might order the same invitation design, their weddings are likely to be very different in style. In this case, Christie and Robert chose a seemingly traditional invitation design for their slightly vintage, slightly whimsical, slightly rock n’ roll wedding.

WEDDING DATE: June 18, 2011
LOCATION: Bay Village, Ohio (suburb of Cleveland)
CEREMONY: St. Raphael’s Catholic Church
RECEPTION: The Clifton Barn
PHOTOGRAPHER: Jeffrey Klaum
FLOWERS: Hosanna Design
GOWN: Altered J Crew gown
BRIDESMAID DRESSES: Altered Alvina Valenta dresses
MEN’S ATTIRE: American Commodore

STATIONERY: Olivia wedding invitation
WHY DID CHRISTIE CHOOSE THIS INVITATION?: We had a lot of Puerto Rican elements in our wedding and these went along very nicely.

FAVORITE WEDDING DETAIL: Taking pictures at the old house.
FAVORITE OR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: Marrying my best friend.

Congrats Christie and Robert – thanks so much for sharing your photos!
