Elegant "royal wedding" at Hermitage Hotel

Heather and Ben were married in a gorgeous ceremony at Hermitage Hotel.  Although she was traveling for a lot of the time during planning, Heather and her mom created many DIY elements for her wedding.

The red, white and black color scheme added a very elegant feel to the day.

Each guest was given a small box of flower petals to throw as the couple left the ceremony. 

This elaborate and ornate cake matched many of the details on the brides dress.

Custom framed escort cards for all the guests

A candy bar was one of the many details the bride provided for her guests. 

The color scheme added an elegant feel to the reception.  Red roses were the centerpieces throughout with red napkin rings, black napkins and an assortment of crystal candle holders. 

Check out this awesome kids table!

The head table was in the middle of the room.  The bride and groom had red and white pillows for their chairs.

As a cheerleader, the bride performed a few stunts for her guests.
