Kathelia and Lee's wedding was bright and filled with energy! From the pink in the bride's hair to the whimsical flowers, the day was bursting at the seams with reflections of the couple's colorful personalities. They chose their date to coincide with a weekend that is traditionally filled with fun and built-in entertainment for their guests and they succeeded! There's no better time for celebration than Arts Fest.
From the moment they woke up, they each had the biggest, most genuine smiles on their faces that never faded. Bridesmaids were striking in hues of turquoise while Groomsmen rocked navy blue suits as a subtle nod to their Penn State roots. The day was full of nostalgia with stops at the Lion Shrine, Hintz Alumni Center, and of course, their favorite bar, The Phyrst. When you get married during Arts Fest, you absolutely have to take a walk down Allen Street, topped off with a Lion Chariot ride through campus.
There's nothing more touching than when a family member performs the ceremony, and the groom's brother did not disappoint. His words were second only to the vows that the bride and groom wrote for each other. Afterwards, live Spanish guitar greeted guests for cocktails on the patio at Toftrees - one of many surprises of the night. Nothing could have prepared friends and family for the thoughtful touches and burst of excitement and color in the reception space!
The reception entrance was epic, with fog cannons and a choreographed first dance, ending in an air guitar breakout. The bride, a graphic designer, created a custom logo for their wedding that became the focal point of their reception space. The groom, a techie, provided LED orbs and individual bracelets for each guest, all synced with the music. The dance floor was packed all night with guests with glowing bracelets and airborne orbs. It was one of the best dance parties of the year
