An Incredible Wedding at Vie

Jenna and TJ came to us to assist in the planning and design of their wedding more than a year in advance. Jenna travels heavily for her company and wanted a team on the ground in Philadelphia to create her vision and manage all the details. She chose stunning colors of coral and charcoal gray accented by gold. The venue, Vie, is already decorated on its own but we added to the beauty of the venue with more chandeliers, glitz and glam. The mirrored head table had 12 dimmable chandeliers above at varying heights. The seating was mostly at square tables; white leather and those clothed in gold. We had 10 tables that seated 6 guests each, quite a nice difference from the “common” seating. The floral centerpieces ranged from our stunning 5’ tall round floral spheres (Jessica, our Creative Director, made the floral spheres so beautiful that most of the guests asked if the flowers were real!), and crystal candelabras to lower elements placed in mercury glass and adorned with glowy candlelight.

The paper pieces for the wedding were gorgeous. The wedding invitation was delivered in a hand calligraphed box. The guests knew that it was going to be a special evening upon its’ arrival. The menu, die cut to fit within the charger plate, was one of my favorite pieces. (So much so, I am using the same style for my event in London this August!). The print theme was carried though out every paper element.

On the patio we added some fringe elements and furniture as well as a cigar rolling station for later in the evening. The guests LOVED that space.

Jackie Bayne, from Love Shack Photography, did an amazing job capturing all the details of the day.There were so many!

This is a great idea. Uncommon Events would love to plan a Pop Up Wedding. Just give us a call. We can make it very “uncommon”!

This was just so much fun. The groom attended WVU and loved it there.

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.
