The first time I ever met with Chelsea and George, I met them for a consultation at the University and Whist Club in the City of Wilmington. I had never been so impressed to be an invited to the members only club and then had the opportunity to dine with Chelsea, George, and Chelseas mother Melanie! Melanie and myself were enjoying trying the new fare that the chef was sending out to our table, and I enjoyed watching as Melanie ordered for both Chelsea and George, knowing what the both of them would want to order. She was the most gracious and attentive of mothers. And of course, Melanie and I were able to reap the benefits of keeping an open mind and enjoying the caviar on crisp wontons with mango since Chelsea and George would not even dare to sample. I knew we would enjoy ourselves during the planning process when they decided during dinner that LovelyGirls would have the opportunity to work with Chelsea and Georges family! I am so glad that we did.
Chelseas mother, Melanie, had the biggest heart! Chelsea had a huge fondness for candy, so Melanie arranged for limousine pickup at their house, and arranged for Chelseas entire bridal shower be moved to Dylans Candy Bar in NYC. Could not have asked for a better day. Well, in hindsight, maybe for the DVD player to work! All in all, Chelsea could not have been more surprised.
Chelsea and George held their wedding at the beautiful St. Hedwigs in the City of Wilmington. Chelsea dressed her bridesmaids in beautiful sage green Bari Jay floor length dresses while they carried a full bouquet of lush fuchsia peonies and roses by Le Sentier Flowers. After being whisked away by their convertible Rolls Royce, they were taken to the beautiful University and Whist Club where Chelsea had wanted a very PINK wedding. Pink linens, pink sashes, pink peonies, and beautiful pink rose petals around the base of her three tiered buttercream cake by the University and Whist Club. Each tier was adorbed by a ribbon of rhinestones, and the candlelight from the table just made it sparkle from across the room. You would have thought there was a disco ball on the dance floor! Dominique Ho of Le Sentier Flowers was amazing to work with and the bouquets of peonies and roses, and the centerpieces of hydrangea were stunning! If you ever have the opportunity to make it to the University and Whist Club, we suggest asking for the Basil Ice Cream (even if it is not on the menu). It is worth second, thirds, and fourths in my book! Enjoy the images courtesy of Clair Pruett Photography (and a course a few our ours mixed in)!
