An Incredible Wedding at Vie

Jenna and TJ came to us to assist in the planning and design of their wedding more than a year in advance. Jenna travels heavily for her company and wanted a team on the ground in Philadelphia to create her vision and manage all the details. She chose stunning colors of coral and charcoal gray accented by gold. The venue, Vie, is already decorated on its own but we added to the beauty of the venue with more chandeliers, glitz and glam. The mirrored head table had 12 dimmable chandeliers above at varying heights. The seating was mostly at square tables; white leather and those clothed in gold. We had 10 tables that seated 6 guests each, quite a nice difference from the “common” seating. The floral centerpieces ranged from our stunning 5’ tall round floral spheres (Jessica, our Creative Director, made the floral spheres so beautiful that most of the guests asked if the flowers were real!), and crystal candelabras to lower elements placed in mercury glass and adorned with glowy candlelight.

The paper pieces for the wedding were gorgeous. The wedding invitation was delivered in a hand calligraphed box. The guests knew that it was going to be a special evening upon its’ arrival. The menu, die cut to fit within the charger plate, was one of my favorite pieces. (So much so, I am using the same style for my event in London this August!). The print theme was carried though out every paper element.

On the patio we added some fringe elements and furniture as well as a cigar rolling station for later in the evening. The guests LOVED that space.

Jackie Bayne, from Love Shack Photography, did an amazing job capturing all the details of the day.There were so many!

Dear Melissa, Amanda and Jess,

Words cannot express our gratitude towards everything you did to turn our dream wedding vision into a reality. As you know, we started our wedding planning journey without your guidance or assistance. Without your help, we know the final design would have paled in comparison to the wedding you helped us achieve.

Your attention to detail and tireless effort gave us the wedding of our dreams. The compliments continue and the memories grow as we reflect on the wonderful evening we shared with all of our friends and loved ones.

We will always remember you fondly for our amazing wedding and recommend you to any couples that want their wedding experience to exceed their expectations.

Sincerely,

Lindsay & Jason
Bride and Groom
Ritz Carlton Philadelphia
