Lea and Gerry were one of our out of town couples. He is from Colorado. She is from New Jersey. They met in Brooklyn, got engaged in Costa Rica, and live in Chicago. We were able to plan everything with a few visits to Philadelphia, some Skype conversations, and a lot of emails.
There was so much about this September 29, 2012 Top of the Tower wedding that we love! Lea is a designer so all of the details were so well thought out… The purple patterned bow ties and pocket squares really popped. The succulent boutonnieres by Willow & Thistle paid homage to their love of the Southwest. Her hairpiece and dress were stunning, while her Toms wedges showed her playful side. They incorporated all of their special places into the ceremony with a tree planting. Four family members each represented a place and poured dirt from that place into the pot to plant the tree. And the photo booth background featured paper pinwheels made by Lea and her mom, and one of the props included a jackalope.
