WEDDING | Providence Biltmore Wedding with Ray and Sally

Ray and Sally’s art deco themed wedding was more than an elegant affair. All the details were perfectly planned and tied in seamlessly by wedding planner Elizabeth Lutz, owner of Glass Event Planning. “Elizabeth was especially important for the execution of the event on the day of. My parents, Ray and I were able to relax knowing she had the details under control.” The Providence Biltmore was the perfect place to hold their wedding because it was important to the couple that everyone was in the same room. “The food and service at the Biltmore are excellent” says the newlyweds. So it was an easy choice.

Ray and Sally are huge football fans, so they made sure to personalize their wedding and represent their favorite teams {for Sally it’s the Wisconsin Badgers and for Ray it’s the New England Patriots}. During introductions, each pair of the bridal party came running in holding up a flag to represent each team and the Maid of Honor/Best Man threw a football as they entered.

When asked what her favorite part of her wedding was, Sally said she really enjoyed the speeches and dancing with her Dad because he took lots of lessons to get the dance right. She also loves Zumba so she hired her instructor to come teach a mini class at the Biltmore the morning of her wedding. Then during their reception, they did a Zumba flash mob dance – it was pretty epic! 🙂
