Marielle & Brandon

One night while Marielle was out with friends, she saw Brandon standing at the bar. “I was intrigued by his mystery and he says he was charmed by my smile,” Marielle said. The couple quickly discovered that despite being opposites, they were attracted to each other’s hearts and were truly a perfect match. “We accept and respect our unique differences and have never tried to change each other,” the couple shared. One thing Marielle and Brandon did have in common was their deep love and devotion for their family and friends and because of this, they knew their wedding was going to be a large, joyous affair.

Marielle had always wanted a classic, art deco wedding and the couple agreed that the Palmer House was the perfect backdrop for their celebration. While all two hundred and fifty of their guests looked on, Marielle and Brandon exchanged vows beneath a gold column chuppah, complete with ivory chiffon fabric and emerald green foliage. “While we stood under the chuppah, our officiant told us to look around the room at everyone who was there to support us,” the couple said. “It was truly overwhelming to see each and every person who we love be there to witness and celebrate us.”

Following their ceremony and cocktail hour, the newlyweds spent the rest of the night enjoying their candlelit reception, which featured black satin tablecloths, golden candelabras, and oversized greenery. “Our wedding day couldn’t have gone more smoothly, and we know we have an incredible team of vendors to thank for that,” Marielle and Brandon gushed. “Everyone had a such a blast. We couldn’t be more grateful!”
