Karla and George decided on a beautiful sunset cruise for their wedding reception on board the Freedom Elite Yacht Charter, a private yacht in the Spirit of Philadelphia family of cruise lines. It was a beautiful October fall day, Karla wore her gorgeous wedding dress from Angel’s Bridal which was finished at Sew Pretty Studio. George wore a navy tux from Domenico’s Formal Wear.
The tables had floral centerpieces from Offshoots: Floral Artistry and Tailored Designs with wedding signs by Stephanie Somodi. Beautiful long stem vases held large white votive candles that basked the room in the warm elegance of candlelight.
Our groom looked quite dapper in his navy tuxedo with a black bowtie from Domenico’s Formal Wear.
Our bride looked stunning from her white lace dress from Angel’s Bridal in Haddonfield NJ which was custom fitted by the fine tailors at Sew Pretty Studio in Haddonfield NJ. She held a beautiful bridal bouquet from Jim, the florist at the prestigious Offshoots Floral Studio. On the bouquet she had unique charms of late family members, who were definitely present in spirit during this emotional, awe-inspiring wedding.
The bride and groom entered the 2nd floor of the yacht to the cheers of their guests for their grand entrance and each had custom drinks prepared by the bar.
The bride’s specialty drink was champagne, grenadine, and cherry garnish while the groom chose mojitos: rum, simple syrup, mint, limes, soda water.
Inside the reception area, the decor was gorgeous:
Look at the beautiful wedding cake by Bredenbeck’s Bakery.
With the ship about to set sail, we took some family formals on deck followed by the couple’s first dance overlooking the Delaware River.
