Amanda and Michael – Arts Ballroom – Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI events

Oh how I love this couple! From the first time we met, right away we clicked and I knew their wedding would be an amazing one.  Jenna and I started our day at the Doubletree Hotel Philadelphia on Broad Street, where Claudia Seyler  was finishing up with Amanda’s hair and make up. See looked amazing! Amanda looked so beautiful in her Alita Graham gown with crystal Ali Ellie belt.

Amanda and her dad arrived in a white Rolls Royce Phantom to the Basilica as her guests waited patiently. The bridal party lined up and ready to go, we were about to start – this is my favorite part.  Mike and all the groomsmen waiting at the alter as Amanda and her father walked down slowly to “Trumpet Voluntary” by Clarke, it was perfect.

After the ceremony, time for  pictures – Phil Kramer, whom we worked with at Gigi and Jamal’s wedding,  took pictures  at the Philadelphia Art Museum and various locations in the city before the reception. I love all the images captured and the love that they have for one another showed. It started to drizzle – they say it’s good luck to rain on your wedding day – so we headed to the Doubletree Hotel where the couple relaxed before the big party.

The Arts Ballroom looked amazing, all the details came together beautifully as Eric and I were putting the finishing touches in the ballroom. Eventions Productions uplit the cocktail room in a soft sky blue color to accentuate the columns and ceiling. The ballroom was spectacular, all the tables were covered in satin champagne floor length linens and paired with gold chiavari chairs. The tablescape was as grand as the ballroom ,we worked closely with Adrianne  of Robertson’s Flowers on their centerpieces.

The couple had 2 different centerpieces consisting of lush white hydrangea and roses in white and cream. The larger pieces were nestled at the base of a large crystal candelabra lit with floating candles. The other centerpieces were a lower version. The tables were complete with custom designed table signs (all designed by Titus Print), and menu cards, all in rich gold and opal shimmer cardstock.

The guests were greeted with the couple’s signature drink, “The Astronaut” as they nibbled on STARR’s amazing food. Amanda and Mike wanted their guests to have fun, as their wedding favor, they had Shutterbooth Photobooth there for the entire event. It was a big success.

We revealed the reception space to Amanda and Mike before their guests and they were soo happy. They walked onto the dancefloor where we had placed their custom designed Gobo with their logo. Positioned next to their sweetheart table was their spectacular cake designed by Whipped Bakeshop, the couple had their initial positioned in the center of this edible masterpiece.

The party started right away with their intro, Amanda and Mike walked into the song “Otis” by Jay Z and Kanye, mixed nicely by DJ Bizz of CTO Artists. The party was non-stop and guests were on the dancefloor all night.

The couple’s first song was “Baby I’m Amazed” by Paul Mc Cartney, it was so beautiful.

The couple shared special dances with their parents, where they let them choose their own songs. This is a great way to involve both parents with the music selection during that memorable moment. DJ Bizz surprised the guests with Egyptian club music that had everyone on the dancefloor once again. The couple was hoisted on chairs above the guests, another Egyptian tradition, as everyone danced around them. What an awesome way to end a fabulous wedding.

Thank you Amanda and Michael for letting us plan your amazing wedding. You were great to work with and we love you both. Hope you had a great time in  The Dominican Republic.
