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.

Talk about picture perfect, Amber and Sean’s April wedding was just that. With an all-star line up of vendors and a gorgeous spring day at The Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, the entire wedding could not have been any more beautiful.

Inspired by the season, our event planning and design team had a blast with this Philadelphia wedding! The reception was a perfect combination of sophisticated romance and a fresh garden party. Light shades of pinks and whites filled the pedestal centerpieces and were accented by bright shades of green. Our designer’s used baby’s breath to create Amber and Sean’s ceremony arbor and as table runners for their long farmhouse tables!

Complimented by the bursting Cherry Blossoms that grace the North East every April, the wedding album is a must see. Thank you to Mary Dougherty Photography for capturing the day so well.

Love is in the Air 2016 Recapped

Love is in the Air 2016, was one for the books! Love wasn’t only in the air, this year it was in the vibe, on the tablescapes, in the flower arrangements, on the runway, in the delectable food and its presentations, and on the faces of everyone, presenters and attendees alike! Our event planning and design team had a fabulous time and each year seems to get better and better!


It truly was an experience from the moment our guests entered through the double doors of the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, where staggered pillars of candlelight and my smiling team greeted them! The Horticulture Center is always an inviting space, especially in the depths of a cold winter and we are so happy that it was home to #LIITA2016.

Cocktail hour quickly led into a fashion show curated by Lovely Bride and Henry A. Davidsen and hosted by 2 Life Talent. Guests oo’d and ahh’d as fringe, beads and buttons, and even a female pants suit rocked the runway. Our LIITA partner, STARR events catered the entire evening and it was fabulous. Their food (almost) looked too good to eat!
