What do you mean it’s already 2010? It can’t be! I haven’t done my year in review yet!

It’s never too late!

Amber and Ryan – a great couple who worked SO HARD to make their wedding day happen. It was so rewarding for cHill Weddings to see them relax and have a great day – a beautiful day at Columbia Station that their love deserved.

Make sure that you check our Florinef offers, because you can get it for only 1.47 USD at our store! Kristen and Paul – I remember how difficult it was to find a church that would marry them on Easter weekend, but Arch St. Presbyterian was flexible and happy to help. What a gorgeous church! Kristen’s dress was amazing, and their wedding was a smash at Knowlton Mansion.
Sara and Kevin – A great couple and a great wedding at Blue Bell Country Club. It was great to see them have a great time, especially after such a difficult year. Sara and Kevin were in a horrible car accident earlier in the year, and we were all so thankful to see them dance to Jack Johnson at their wedding.

Amy and Marc – This was Tasha’s first wedding as a day of coordinator, and she totally rocked it! Tasha and Lauren (intern) set up all the tables, linens, and place settings, in addition to centerpieces, so that it was all ready in time! They really went over and beyond what was expected and what was written on our timeline. We love all our vendors, but if they are running late or need an extra hand, we are not afraid to get our hands dirty! Amy and Marc were a fun-loving couple who wed on a friend’s azalea farm. A very personalized intimate wedding that was perfect for them!

Karen and Dave – They are extra special to me. Dave went to law school with my husband, so during the planning process, we all got to know each other and became good friends. Although I planned their awesome wedding at Radnor Hotel, my husband and I were invited as guests! Duyen and Tien (intern) stepped in and worked it the day of the wedding. As a guest who was there, I can truly say they rocked it!

Christine and Marc – We returned to Columbia Station for Chris and Marc’s wedding. The May weather was surprisingly hot, but we had an outdoor wedding. I loved this wedding because we also did all the flowers for the ceremony and reception, plus personal flowers. It was HARD WORK, but it was so much fun. They had the best wedding party, with the most supportive family and friends. Oh and she was my first Korean client, so I loved having hanboks in the ceremony!

Janelle and Kevin – I love working with clients who are planning on getting married in Philadelphia, but planning from other parts of the country. Janelle and Kevin lived in DC, so they hired me to help with their planning. We got to work with Conroy Catering again, but over at Glen Foerd. They were super easy to work with and a beautiful couple.

Elizabeth and William – The weekend of the big Manayunk bike race, was also Liz and William’s wedding at Lemon Hill Mansion. It was a beautiful tented affair. Liz and William were the most gracious couple – simply down to earth and so wonderful to work with. We had a great time setting up for this pink and green wedding.

Jesaida and Peter – I say they should be the new face of eHarmony! It was a festive wedding with Puerto Rican cuisine. We were there early for all set up and it was worth it! Swoop stopped by to party with the crowd later that evening. Congrats to Jesaida and Peter who will be parents very soon!

Margot and Chris – Margot, a weddingbee writer, with Chris created one of the most creative and unique weddings I have done so far. Not afraid of colors, they had multicolor centerpieces, linens, and balloons! Their gorgeous weddings was at the former FUEL house (now TRUST). More updates to follow for Margot and Chris later this year!

Vicki and Larry – They put the Sex and the City Carrie’s Library wedding to shame. First, they actually had a wedding ceremony, which embraced Vicki’s Filipino heritage. Then the party was held on the roof top of the Philadelphia Free Library under a tent. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Vicki’s blue shoes, birdcage veil, and 2nd dress would have made ut Carrie Bradshaw jealous! Vicki and Larry will also be parents very soon!

Bri and Carlos – I think their wedding would also have to win unique wedding of the year. Another wedding coordinated by Tasha, it was flawless and stunning. Their wedding was featured on Wedding Nouveau. The meaningful ceremony at Magical Gardens celebrated Carlo’s heritage, then they headed over to the Society Hill Dance Academy for dinner catered by Starr Events.

Tara and Matthew – A truly beautiful couple, in the inside and out. I love how “in love” Matthew is with Tara everytime we met. Also, their family members rallied around them through the wedding planning; family is so important to them. They later upgraded to full service, and I’m so glad they did, because I got to know them better!

Angela and Matt – We don’t have the image to post yet, but we will be doing a full recap soon! They booked us for day of years before their wedding, and the anticipation definitely built up the closer we go to their wedding date. I loved their ceremony, which took place under a chuppah in a Quaker meeting house. More to come!

Thank you to all our couples for being so wonderful! We at cHill Weddings love what we do because we find it so rewarding to see such deep love expressed every time. We are also grateful to work with such generous and gracious people, and planning your weddings was fun every step of the way. I am also very thankful to have created the relationships I have with most of you, where I feel more like a friend now than your wedding planner/coordinator. May you all be blessed in this new year! Some of you will become parents, some of you will be buying your first home, others will relocating or working new jobs. My heart is with you as you embark on your new journeys as newly weds!

Love always,

Christina and everyone at cHill Weddings
