Julia & Michael - August 29th, 2009

Location: The Pennsylvanian

With the crazy, CRAZY, storms we had in the morning, I was thrilled to see the sky open up and let the summer warmth in for cocktails.

As you can see, the cocktails were held under the rotunda.

I don't think my table and setup ever looked as good as it did tonight. I made sure to ask Kim Reed ( to take a couple pictures for me.

Picture before all the flowers brought in from the ceremony. (It still looks good.)
Julia and Mike had a great idea of bringing in couches for the side of the dance floor.

She also brought a HUGE basket of flip flops for the ladies. (It's all about the details that makes your day unique.)

I have NEVER seen the Pennsylvanian look so beautiful as it did tonight. Don't get me wrong. All the other weddings I have done there have been beautiful but the design, color, layout, etc.. of Julia and Mike's reception took my breath away when I walked in.

The pictures I took doesn't come close to how nice it was. Make sure to check out Kim's blog for better pictures. (
