A rehearsal dinner was hosted by the groom’s parents on the eve of the wedding at the historic Arlington Hall, where the groom’s grandmother Sharon Galer was involved in the formation of the Lee Park & Arlington Hall Conservancy, serving as its first president.

Presented in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, the bride wore an elegant gown of ivory Alencon lace designed by Ines Di Santo of Stanley Korshak. The fit-to-flair silhouette featured a silk taffeta underlay and fashioned a beautiful scalloped sweetheart neckline. Covered buttons adorned the low v-back of the gown, dramatically accenting her full fluted skirt. To complete her ensemble, the bride wore her sister’s veil of sheer illusion and lace, which framed her face and cascaded beyond her chapel-length train. The wedding flowers were a combination of bright citrus colors with shades of lime, lemon, grapefruit, and orange. White lattice work was used throughout the club, invoking a Southern feel, with magnolias and fruit adorning it.
