The sun may not have been shining on Jess & Jake’s wedding day but we had the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center lit up! With a hurricane forecasted for the weekend, our event planning and design team turned plan A into plan B and it was fabulous. Photographer Mark Tassoni gave us a sneak peek into the wedding album and we couldn’t wait to share with you!

Starr Events Catering group prepared the menu and cocktails for the evening. Their service and presentation is hard to beat, especially in the Philadelphia area and we absolutely love working with them!

Maggpie Vintage Rentals supplied us with some incredible accent furniture. The head tables were exposed farmhouse tables that we layered with delicate sequined linen – perfect combination of rustic and elegant.

The Fairmount Park Horticulture Center is one of our favorite Philadelphia wedding venues and was the perfect setting for Alison and Eric’s May wedding. The natural spring flora combined with the Fairmount park landscape and Alison’s style combined beautifully for this simple and elegant wedding!

Alison and Eric’s wedding ceremony took place outdoors on the grounds of the Horticulture center. The ceremony design was simple, as we played up the natural elements of the landscape. French tulips set in tall wooden pedestals greeted guests as they arrived to take their seats. The bridesmaids walked down the aisle and added the perfect pop of color as they held bright yellow sunflower bouquets (the bride’s favorite flower)! The traditional wedding ceremony was followed by a Chinese Tea Ceremony where the bride and groom served tea to show respect and honor to their parents. So cool!

The reception was simple and elegant with beautiful pops of bold color! We used a mixed of round tables and farmhouse tables to create a rustic feel. The floral centerpieces were each unique and held a variety of floral choices and colors. Gray linens and seat cushions allowed the arrangements to really pop! The entire evening was dreamy as we used a lot of candle light and draped exposed edison bulbs. The head table was set in front of a backdrop of mismatching mirrors that reflected light throughout the entire room.

The live band had the dancefloor full and Stephen Starr Events supplied the exquisite menu! In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the bride and groom chose an ice cream cake from Philly Flavors. Check out the amazing images captured by Sarah DiCicco Photography.

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 🙂

We have the distinguished honor to partner with STARR events for an invitation only evening for our bridal couples. I was asked to plan and create an evening to WOW our guests. The evening will include a winter ceremony as well as tablescapes inspired by Bridal Gowns provided by Bridals by Danielle.  Tiffany & Co. will be joining us for the evening as well as a fabulous list of professional wedding vendors.
