Cake & Lace is so excited to share this classic emerald green and blush wedding. We couldn’t help but notice the complementary tones throughout this gorgeous wedding and the abundance of florals! The bride wore a classic gown and carried along with her gorgeous dahlia’s in her bouquet. Without further ado, take a peak at this lovely album with the most gorgeous real wedding.
From the photographer: “They wanted their wedding to be something classic and chic with lush florals and a vintage flare. Their day started off at the foundry suites, where a white rolls royce picked up christina and her father and dropped them off at The Buffalo Historical Museum. There surrounded by their friends and family they were married. They then hopped back into the rolls royce for their bridal portraits and then headed over to the Albright Knox Art gallery for more portraits.
For her bridal bouquets she wanted lush greenery with a hint of dark burgundy. The reception was filled with beautiful florals and the head table decorated in greenery.
When you walk into their reception room at the foundry suites the tables are decorated with beautiful silver charges and silver folded napkin holding the menu for the evening, the menu matches their invitation suite perfectly. Their head table has beautiful greens all down the center of it.
To tie their cake into the theme it looks water colored with flecks of silver over it.
From the couple on how they met: Sure, not every love story is a fairy tale. As love stories sometimes go, the narrative of Tony and Christina begins with a glance. He remembers distinctly first meeting her eyes. It is a hurried sort of glance, the kind of fumbling introduction that is half embarrassment and half…something else. You see, he almost mows her down in their shared place of work as she comes around a corner, unseen until he is nearly on her, until he nearly crashes into her. Startled, she looks up and meets his eyes, and he stammers, “S-sorry.” The shared glance breaks and life returns to normal. Well, you know–sort of normal.
If every love story is a many-chaptered book with pages well tended and footnotes that only the couple can distinguish, Tony and Christina’s book really begins in the place most go to purchase deli meats or cartons of 2% milk: Wegmans. The Weggies on Sheridan, to be exact, where they brush past one another before work one morning. No words are exchanged, but it is another glance, just the same. Back in the office, he decides to instant message her: “Either I just saw you at Wegmans, or you have a doppelganger.” No, it didn’t end up in any Top Pickup Lines from 2015 lists, but maybe that’s for the better.
That prologue is eventually dubbed “Doppelganger Day.” If Tony gets credit for starting the conversation, Christina wants credit for “making the first move” and rightly so, as she demands that he take her to Wasabi. From there, the conversations don’t stop. Sushi and laughter and Jurassic World and dogs (fur-babies) and hikes and frozen yogurt cement their love. And so Tony begins to lay plans for a proposal. He photographs signs of significance to their relationship, the footnotes of their story that have become their secret language. From these signs, he selects letters (a W from their Wegmans, for instance, an A from Wasabi, a Y from Froyo…) to spell out two words: “Marry Me?” He springs the question while on vacation in Bethany Beach, DE on June 29, 2016. It is one year and one month before the wedding. This time, it is Christina’s turn to stammer: “is this real life?” and “are you serious?” … and “yes.”
Now, shared interests and shared goals and shared happiness lead them to their wedding day, which will inscribe a new chapter, one that launches their shared future.”
