Here are some of my favorite photos from one of our prettiest spring weddings at the Horticulture Center in Philadelphia. It had beautiful flowers, tons of personal touches and a very in love bride & groom 🙂

This wedding was held at Greystone Hall on the very last day of May. The weather was picture perfect. The bride wanted a touch of vintage and incredibly romantic. Her colors of muted and bright pinks with gray were just the ticket. There were many, many details. The escort cards were displayed library style as a nod to their love of reading. The burlap containers had a touch of satin ribbon scrolled with love letters. The napkins had a paper bellyband inscribed with their monogram. The light peach subtle satin linens with the fine burlap napkin were the perfect accouterment for that vintage feel.

These are photos from the wedding we just did this past April. The bride & groom loved writing each other love notes so we did a nod to their love of writing with their escort card table. Handcalligraphed library cards, folded vintage books, vintage typewriter & boxes to write love notes and advice to the happy couple 🙂

What can we say about Char + Joe’s wedding day? It was perfect from start to finish, with a dream team (Uncommon Events, Maggpie Vintage Rentals, Stephen Starr + Lovesick Inc), sunny skies and the most emotional, fun, downright awesome wedding guests. We are so thankful to have been a part of this beautiful celebration, and hope our photos can do justice to the beauty we documented that day.

Tented Summer Wedding

The following photos are of a gorgeous summer, tented wedding we did in a client’s backyard. They were such a cute couple and their day had beautiful décor!

Here is a spring rehearsal dinner we did at the Rodin Museum for a really adorable couple. It was one of our favorite events we ever did! It turned out really beautiful and Rodin was a beautiful back drop for the event.
 We were fortunate to be asked to assist in the design of a wedding held in Indianapolis. We packed the car and had the flowers shipped direct from our California purveyor. Indianapolis was such a treat. I had no concept of what to expect from the Midwestern town. I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, the folks are as kind and helpful as possible. ALL of them. The location, D’Amore, was atop a hi rise building with beautiful views.. The design was a bit of hip and cool with romantic flair.
