Matt + Cindy | Hotel Monaco, Philadelphia

When Cindy Dishmey, a vice president at Goldman Sachs married Dr. Matthew Montgomery, chief resident at Aria Hospital in Philadelphia, it was explosion of energy, excitement and emotion. The bride went for an edgy, modern, glamorous style and was very hands-on in creating a look that was one of a kind. She found a print shop that was able to engrave her wedding invitation on a metal sheet.  She designed and sewed a stunning art-deco inspired wedding dress like nothing I have ever seen before. Because she was adamant about not using flowers, she handmade pearl bouquets for her bridesmaids and a jewelry-studded brooch bouquet for herself. For the reception, she hired the talented Papertini Floral and Event Design to create centerpieces made of crystal and glass that made the room sparkle when the lights dimmed. But the best "decor" was their family, friends, and their sorority brothers and sisters who came with their hearts filled with love and support.  Matt and Cindy are truly blessed. To their future...cheers!  (Photos  courtesy of Todd Laffler. Brava Weddings Day of Coordination).
