Fall 2020 Wedding Recap

Fall 2020 Wedding Recap

This Fall was like no other. As we all know, 2020 has been a whirlwind with the added stress of a global pandemic on top of the natural wedding planning stress. We were able to host 3 weddings this Fall even if they all could not be inside our beautiful Bliss Ballroom; we made the best of it!

Charelle & Brett celebrated their love on Friday, September 25th and was one of our outside, tent weddings! Even though Charelle & Brett had to deal with the added stress of the pandemic. Charelle & Brett made sure that all their wedding guests felt safe from having hand sanitizers & home-made masks as their guest favors as well as opting to have a tent wedding! Big Top Rentals provided the clear top tent as well as been an amazing & loyal vendor throughout the whole pandemic! The centerpieces were mini succulents which were another gift for the guests to take home! The Sprau’s opted out of a traditional wedding cake but instead offered a Donut Bar from Electric City Bakehouse & a separate Dessert Bar from Whipped Sweet Shoppe! We loved seeing their fur babies represented at the wedding as their signature drinks names [the Lily & the Lenox]! We had the wonderful opportunity to work with LG Photography, Timmypricefilm, & DJ Rockin’ Ray as their vendors! We wish Charelle & Brett a long happy life full of love & joy!


Marissa & Dillon were blessed to be able to hold on to the precious wedding date of October 10th! We were in contact with Marissa & Dillon throughout last few months updating them on the Pennsylvania guidelines since they were travelling in from New York! We had the pleasure of working with magical vendors to make their day happen; Scarinzi Media as the Photography team, Uranko Productions as the DJ & entertainer, PLUS Shabby Sisters for providing the linen & décor rentals & Painted Petals for decorating the arch & providing their floral arrangements. The table design was so gorgeous! Marissa was a big texture girl & could not say no to velvet tablecloths & napkins with gold napkin rings! The table was topped with a blush sequin table runner with a blush chiffon table runner bunched on top. The centerpieces consisted of round mirrors topped with a greenery wreath finished with geometric gold candle holders with an additional geometric votive! To finish the table design they had a gold flower like charger plate! Even though they had to struggle planning the last 6 months of their engagement & living through the unknown if their wedding was going to happen, Marissa said that their wedding day was more than she ever dreamed it would be & that’s all that matters! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Affatato!

Lauren & Joe had their wedding celebration on Saturday, October 24th but were actually married on Thursday, October 15, 2020. The Chesla’s knew they wanted their wedding anniversary to have a special meaning & what is more special than having the same anniversary as Lauren’s grandparents. Hearing their story & how special that date was to them was magical. The couple truly tied in the Fall with their wedding theme! From glitter pumpkins to fall leave accents to glitter acorns spread around! They even brought in their own napkins with alternating orange, red, brown, & tan colors in a leaf fold! One unique thing that caught our eyes were the place card holders being used shot gun shells with a creative sign saying ‘This ain’t no shotgun wedding, Ya’ll have proper seats’. That was not the only sign displayed! They also had adorable additions for guests to leave them messages to read on their 1st anniversary & share your best date idea for the new Mr. & Mrs. We were so happy to be able to host their wedding day! Best wishes to Mr. & Mrs. Chesla!
