Glam Wedding with Beautiful Greenery? Yes they Did! The Belvedere Hotel & Cathedral of Mary Our Queen

Belvedere hotel BY Jillian Michelle Photography

Caitlin & Dave are an easy going couple that wanted an affair to remember. With a love for all things sparkly and music, this couple created a wedding to remember.

The stunning Cathedral of Mary our Queen was the perfect backdrop for Caitlin & Danny’s fall wedding day. The guests were in for a treat with a bagpiper welcome to this traditional catholic mass that was the official beginning for Caitlin & Danny’s married life. The Bagpipers traversed the Cathedral’s steps as guests entered into the breathtaking church. It was an absolute privilege to work alongside Shirley, the Cathedral Coordinator who was welcoming and helpful and together Wedding Savvy & Shirley got our couple down the aisle and back for a fabulous kiss caught by Jillian Michelle.

Speaking of Jillian, she got the most FABULOUS photos of our bridal party, wouldn’t you agree?

The wedding reception space was the perfect mix of glam (thanks to the gorgeous Charles Ballroom at the Belvedere) and natural greenery. Kelly green was so perfectly weaved into this event with the napkins and we can’t get enough of the natural +glam look! We loved that our music fans named the tables after their favorite albums - it was a great custom touch that they used the album artwork likeness to make

“Wedding Savvy is excellent!! Raquel and Emily helped me make sure everything was in place leading up to my wedding and made sure that everything went smoothly on the actual day! I was able to relax and not have to worry about anything and just enjoy the day. They are both extremely personable, responsive and experienced!” -Caitlin, Bride

Mike and Addie are two very savvy & busy professionals who knew exactly how they envisioned their wedding day coming together. With the help of Wedding Savvy, the day went exactly as planned and most importantly, Addie & Mike got to be guests at their own wedding!

Addie & Mike’s vision was a simple yet elegant look mixed with a warm rustic feeling. Addie knew her vision and with the help of her friends and family, brought the look to life by working with a family friend for flowers and creating the altar set up herself! The decor was simplistic yet elegant and perfect for her tastes. We loved it - don’t you agree?

Zeffert and Gold did an amazing job with the catering - the food was great and the service was seamless -way to go Z&G team!


Addie & Mike, it was our sincere pleasure to be a part of your wedding day. You are both smart and savvy and the epitome of a classy couple! It was our pleasure to meet your families and be there on your day taking care of the details so you could relax and enjoy your special moments. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your big day!

“Initially, I didn’t think I needed a planner. As we progressed through the planning process, I realized it was a far more complicated task than originally anticipated. Raquel and the Wedding Savvy team were recommended to us by a family friend. I am so glad we decided to hire their team. Nia was our assigned coordinator. She is patient, carefully listened to my “vision” for the day, offered honest and useful feedback, and her plans were extremely detailed and organized. She brought a lot of details/ideas to my attention that I wouldn’t have thought of or had initially considered not important. There were a few miscommunications between my fiance and I and she handled those situations patiently and professionally. Nia wasn’t able to make our walk-through at the venue, but we were lucky enough to have Raquel fill in for her. From the relatively small amount of time spent with Raquel, I can confidently say she is an expert and well connected in the wedding world. One of the most helpful things Nia did for us was putting together a well detailed and organized schedule for the day of for vendors, the wedding party and family. This kept everyone on the same page and was especially helpful keeping us on time as we had to change plans on the fly once it started pouring rain that afternoon. Ultimately, I felt our day went off without a hitch and I was able to enjoy our wedding thanks to the work of Nia and her team.” -Addie, Bride
