Tricia Lego (25 and a pediatric occupational therapy assistant) and James (Jim) Woodward (25 and an accounting supervisor) drew inspiration from their romantic venue to pull off a vintage-style soiree complete with matching black fedoras for their groomsmen. "Our wedding took place at Club Bella at Montebello, which is an old Italian-inspired clubhouse," says Tricia. "We did our best to give the day an old-world feel with a few sentimental additions." The couple decided on a tented garden ceremony, and Jim's extended family shocked them when they all chipped in paid for their venue as a wedding gift. After exchanging vows under a hydrangea-, rose- and linen-draped arbor, the couple invited guests to enjoy a delicious meal crafted by Uptown Catering. Cocktail tables with ivory linens, pink ties, antique lanterns and fresh greenery decorated the standing reception. "We wanted to keep the indoor space simple due to the gorgeous old-world charm that the building already had, and went with a blush, charcoal and ivory color palette," says Tricia. As a surprise for the groom, Tricia had a small Superman added to the back of their buttercream cake, but it was Tricia's father who managed to surprise when it came time for their father-daughter dance. "He arranged with the DJ to play "Tough Little Boys" by Gary Allan and took the microphone at the reception," says Tricia. "He sang to me while we danced, and I cried like a baby—I guess you can say he was part of the entertainment!"

The bridesmaids matched in charcoal Adrianna Papell dresses with a lace bodice and flowing chiffon skirt.
The flower girls wore ivory tutu dresses made by Tricia's friends. "They were adorable and the blush pink flower halos made it even more precious," says Tricia.
The groomsmen all wore Black by Vera Wang tuxedos with matching fedoras. "They all looked so spiffy and matched Jim's style perfectly," says Tricia. "His mother gifted each member of the groom's party with a Kenny K Fedora to add an extra pop of Jim's style to our day— it was precious!"
The hydrangea and rose ceremony flowers complemented the bride's bouquet of pink roses, mums and greenery.

Bridesmaids' Salt-Blowing Tradition
Tricia decided on a dress that was nothing like what she had originally thought she wanted: a strapless ivory Oleg Cassini gown without lace or beaded embellishments.
