Kaytie and Ari were a mix of old world beauty and new world fun! Kaytie looked timeless in her sweetheart, lace wedding dress and curls, and she managed to keep her cool all day long, exclaiming how this WAS the best day of her life! After a leisurely morning getting ready with her girls in the comfort of her own home, Kaytie met Ari for the first time outside their gorgeous venue, Tendenza, surrounded by the texture, shapes and lines of the Piazza in Northern Liberties. Ari looked handsome in his tuxedo and bow tie, but showed off his softer side while alone with Kaytie for their first look. Back in Tendenza, the ceremony was held in the round under crystal and black chandeliers and a glowing chuppah. All day the happy pair was surrounded by close friends and family, who clearly supported for their union, and helped keep the party going after the “I do’s.” A beautiful first dance led to a rousing hora, during which Kaytie and Ari practically became airborne in their chairs as they guests hoisted them to the ceiling! There was no shortage of toasts, sweet moments between families and hilarious anecdotes about the couple during the evening. The dance floor was packed all night, and just as people lost their energy, an amazing desert spread and flambe station provided the needed sugar. Of course, Kaytie and Ari had plenty of sugar to spare Thanks to the innate happiness of the couple, myself and all the guests enjoyed an incredibly beautiful, carefree day!
