Dana + Dave got married at the historic Brooklyn Arts Center located in downtown Wilmington on Saturday, January 6, 2017. We worked closely with Dana + Dave for over a year to make sure that all of their details came together perfectly with our full service planning and design package. We instantly bonded over our love for music, food and festivals. So, we did a music festival themed wedding - #schroederwedfest! From a live band to a Rolling Stones photo booth, we thought of it all!
The Midatlantic Band played as guests arrived to the ceremony. Their sweet sounds of bluegrass and folky Americana was exactly what we were looking for! Dana made lace tambourines to place on each seat for guests to later shake as the bride and groom exited the ceremony. An array of candles lined the aisle and the altar. Have we said we LOVE candles before and lots of them? We used the reception flower centerpieces, designed by Eco Chic Blossoms, at every other chair down the aisle. We used them on each guest table for the reception so this was a great way to save costs. Design Perfection draped the center window to create the perfect place to tie the knot inside Brooklyn Arts Center. Everything was set up and it was time for the "I Dos". When Dave saw Dana walk in (to "January Wedding" by The Avett Brothers, of course), he immediately got teary eyed. A picture is worth a thousand words of this tender moment! The love in the room was incomparable.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to cocktail hour in The Annex. While guests were wined and dined by Middle of the Island, we were busy flipping the ceremony space into the reception. The tables were set with burgundy linens, gorgeous mercury vase floral centerpieces, scattered music sheets and candles. The bridal party sat on the stage with big balloons strategically placed behind them. We tied Mr. & Mrs. balloons behind Dana + Dave's chairs. The room was not only beautiful but so were the people who filled the space. After dinner, Active DJ hit the party lights and we danced the night away. We had such a wonderful time enjoying this winter wedding with some of our favorite tunes and one of our favorite couples. Congratulations Dana + Dave! We loved getting to work with you and look forward to our forever friendship!

Favorite Wedding Moment:
People who know me well know I love The Avett Brothers and John Mayer. So, I was extremely excited when Dana + Dave told me that they were going to have their guests sing "Swept Away" by The Avett Brothers with their wedding band after they exchanged their vows during the ceremony. The programs had the lyrics of the song on the back and everyone in the room sang one of our favorite songs. It made me so happy and made me love this couple even more!
