Erika and Jeff: Chic and Savvy in September, September 25, 2010

Although Erika claimed that she was never really in to planning her wedding, she still managed to put together a beautiful event that reflected her fun and funky sense of style and made it seem like so much fun.

September 25th was sunny and mild - perfect for a garden ceremony. Erika put the finishing touches on her look and posed for a few photos before the ceremony began.

Inside the Providence Ballroom, everything was set in shades of blue.

We were able to bring in the beautiful altar flowers from the ceremony and use them alongside the head table.

In addition to the traditional wedding cake, the cake table featured a laptop styled grooms cake.

Jeff and Erika shared their first dance before enjoying a delicious buffet dinner including Asian Sesame Salad, Dijon Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Wild Mushrooms, Herb Crusted Sirloin of Beef with Green Peppercorn Sauce and Roasted Garlic Yukon Mashed Potatoes. Our banquet staff assisted in preparing the first plates.

The bar featured the usual assortment of top shelf liquors, Copper Ridge Wines and a selection of beers.

DJ Mark Harman of Harmany DJs kept up the soundtrack for the evening as photographer Ron Jones of Jones Photography captured the moments to savor for years to come. Flowers provided by Maryam Flowers.

Best wishes to Jeff and Erika for a long and happy marriage!
