We are getting so excited for all things fall especially as we prepare to open the ticket sales on October 15th for Love Is In The Air 2016 at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center. Once again we are teaming up with the incredible catering and event company, Stephen Starr Events to host an evening of bridal fashions, couture catering, and wedding designs on Thursday, February 25th. Take a look back with us at some of the highlight of the past few years.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be showcasing our designs at this year’s ‘A Date with a Plate’ charity gala in October 2015 at Moulin at Sherman Mills. A Date with a Plate is a two-day event that benefits charitable causes throughout the Delaware Valley. We will be showcasing alongside other professional event planners, florists, interior designers, caterers, and individuals that will all be sharing their personal style and aesthetic.
‘A Date with a Plate’ begins with an evening ‘Patron’s Party’ followed up with ‘Second Helping’, a daytime event with fun and informative lectures! Both events will include auction and raffle items and a fabulous time. The money raised from ‘A Date with a Plate’ will be directed to Project A.L.S, which works towards finding and funding a cure for neurodegenerative diseases.
Take a peek at some of our favorite showcased designs!
A homage to the ultimate in artistic expression #LoveIsInTheAir2015, Philadelphia’s bridal event of the year, at the Philadelphia Horticulture Center—was truly a night to remember from beginning to regrettable ending! Surprise waited around every bend as guests meandered through the incredible event.
The entire evening represented the most state of the art design concepts. Take a look at this amazing short film created by Cinemacake Filmmakers that highlights the entire evening from start to finish!
The rhythm and bump of limousines greeted guests outside of the venue entrance as they arrived. Cocktail hour took place in the display garden as Stephen STARR Events served hors d’oeuvres and the Philadelphia String Quartet entertained guests.
As cocktail hour came to a close, guests were invited into the much-anticipated Lovely Bride and Commonwealth Proper fashion show! With Big Ric of Bic Ric Rising as the MC, there was no better way to end the fashion show than with a dance party!
We are big fans of the Philadelphia Flower Show that takes place each year at the Pennsylvania Convention Center! We especially love their bridal event Wedding Wednesday, that highlights the best vendors of the Philadelphia wedding industry. Attendees can expect the Hollywood treatment, with hair and makeup trials, photo booths, and samples from Philadelphia’s most prestigious venues and caterers. Guests will also be invited to a real, fairytale-like wedding ceremony that will take place the evening of the show!
As a nod to the 2015 Philadelphia Flower Show theme “Celebrate the Movies”, our Creative Director, Jessica Mader created a Casablanca themed film table at #LoveIsInTheAir2015.
Thank you MK Photography for capturing these great photos of the Casablanca table!
This year Uncommon Events will be showcasing a new floral design inspired by Simon Lycett, of London Fame, at Wedding Wednesday. This is a must see for brides and their bridal parties and we are looking forward to seeing what every vendor brings to the table. Check out our flower show designs in person on March 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. All tickets purchased include admission to the Flower Show and a swag bag from Philadelphia Wedding magazine. Learn more about this bridal event and purchase tickets to the Philadelphia Flower Show.

We are already planning for next year’s #LoveIsInTheAir2016. Stay tuned!
Love is in the Air 2015 is not only an event for the ladies! We are so excited to announce that we have designed a room specifically for the boys. The #LoveIsInTheAir2015’s gentlemen’s room will cater to the celebratory event traditions that men love to enjoy. We have chosen masculine vintage furniture to set the mood provided by Maggpie Vintage Rentals! Tony Santana Cigar Company will be hand rolling the highest quality cigars on the premises. The clear tent is the perfect place to enjoy a whiskey drink and gaze at the stars. Commonwealth Proper will be conveniently located next to the gentlemen’s room where the men can marvel at their amazing custom made suits!
I was first granted this nickname a few years back when we planned and designed a wedding for Liz & Andrew (Watch the video on our homepage by clicking the link). When Liz used the term fairy godmother–badass, I was more than flattered! In most fairy tales a ‘fairy godmother’ acts as a mentor with supernatural powers! A badass is well known for carving his/her own path or going against the grain—so to speak. Comparing my team and what we do two both of these terms is one heck of compliment. It wasn’t until a couple of months ago, when we wanted to change our Instagram name that we decided to run with @fairygodmotherbadass!
All @fairygodmotherbadass followers who repost the #LoveIsInTheAir2015 logo (found on our instagram page) and tag both @fairygodmotherbadass and #LoveIsInTheAir2015 will be entered to win two tickets to LIITA2015 on Thursday, February 26th, at The Horticulture Center.
