Joni & Karl

Joni & Karl were married and had their reception in the Imperial Ballroom at the Biltmore on July 5th. Joni chose a vibrant variation of the classic pink and green color palette with splashes of purple! Joni's attention to her wedding details was virtually unparalleled. She was sure that everything from the bridesmaids gowns, her shoes, the tables, decor and florals to the favors were color coordinated. As a result, everything was just gorgeous! I absolutely loved her amazing Kenneth Pool gown-- it had these intricate fabric swirls all over the train of the gown. These swirls were then incorporated everywhere from the stationery to the stunning cake by Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes. Speaking of the cake, Joni had a custom cake table linen made that had layers and layers of tulle which was such a fun and dramatic look! Another detail I loved was the table names. Guests were seated at tables with names such as Love, Patience, Truthfulness, Honor, Respect, Understanding....-- all of the fundamentals of a happy marriage. It was a great party and both Joni and Karl had a suprise for one another. Karl wrote the most beautiful poem for Joni and read it aloud at the reception. And Joni was sure we knew to clear out the ballroom at the end of the night so that she and Karl could have a last dance all to themselves to one of their favorite songs. So sweet! Best wishes to Joni & Karl and thank you to Christine Gallagher for these images that capture all of the beauty and details of their special day.
