Tonia of Aribella Events is behind all of the elegant beauty you will see throughout Kelsey and Jason’s epic New Year’s Eve wedding celebration. The pair met at in Wilmington, Delaware at a minor league baseball game for the River Rocks, and their reception was held within walking distance of their first meeting place at the Chase Center on the Riverfront.
Because Tonia is not only a planner but also a florist, she designed centerpieces that paired orchids together with candles and clocks set to 11:59. April of April Lynn Designs created all of the fantastic stationery, including the unplugged wedding sign and the most creative table numbers (they featured New Year’s Resolutions that the couple brainstormed throughout the year together and with their guests). A black, white, and silver palette filled the room, the dance floor was packed for the entire night with all of K + J’s favorite people, and balloons dropped at midnight.
It’s safe to say, we’re so grateful Tonia planned such a special day and sent it our way. Make sure to not miss any of the moments captured by Catherine Coons Photography. Welcome to elegant and energy-filled Delaware, friends!
