On the morning of the wedding, Paula and her 11 bridesmaids, plus parents, gathered in the Presidential Suite at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel to get pampered and prettied. The boys spent the morning in a nearby suite, all getting haircuts and shaves by the groom’s barber who flew in from Philadelphia, where the couple currently resides. Paula and Joe had their “faux” first look in the beautiful oval room, where they spoke to each other and held hands on either side of the archways, without actually seeing each other, prior to the ceremony.

In the early afternoon, a garden inspired ceremony on the Outdoor Patio at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. Rows of clean white folding chairs for guests created an aisle to feel like a stroll down the streets of Philadephia. Fresh air, lush greenery of moss, amaranthus and leaves paired with roses, peonies and ornate white pillars set the ambiance as a unique aisle piece without distracting from the mountain scenery. For the reception, the Cascade Ballroom was decorated in bright corals, blush, peach and champagne tones, with hints of pastel blue, in a soft and elegant garden style design.

Hints of Philly were seen in the “LOVE” place card holders and custom signage on the sweetheart table. Unique french-inspired brocade napkins acted as an interesting design piece to match the brocade design on the sweetheart table. The sweetheart tables boasted a statement floral piece, and peach chair sashes on the gold chiavari chairs.
