Happy October Friends & Family! The holiday season is quickly approaching and as our first gift to you we have opened our early-bird admission tickets for our annual couture bridal event, Love is in the Air 2017.

Every year, we plan and design Love is in the Air as an opportunity to provide awesome inspiration for Brides! This is our 6th year hosting the event at The Fairmount Park Horticulture Center and #LIITA2017 will be held on Thursday, February 23rd from 6pm to 8:30pm.

What to expect from #LIITA2017? The STARR Events team will be serving up their incredible catering with lip smacking cocktails. Our design team will have the entire venue decked out to the nines in the most over the top event and floral design paired with china, flatware, and glassware from Bloomingdales. Lovely Bride Philadelphia and Nordstrom will host a runway show featuring the trendiest wedding fashions. The Philadelphia Wedding Magazine team and some of Philadelphia’s best in the wedding industry will all be under the same glass roof (remember, it’s a greenhouse) for one night only.

Tickets for LIITA2017 are available here. Hint, hint – they make an awesome Christmas gift!

And just to hold you over until February, here are some highlights from the last couple of years with us.

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 Philadelphia Bridal Event

‘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!

Win two tickets to #LoveIsInTheAir2015!

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!

In honor of this ‘new’ nick name we are going to grant a lucky couple’s wish to attend #LoveIsInTheAir2015, THE bridal event of the year!

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.

Happy Hashtagging!
