Over the years, our event planning and design team has had the pleasure of working alongside incredible event industry professionals. Rather than hosting a wedding “expo” we decided it was time to give our clients something different. Love is in the Air was born from a collaboration with STARR Events. It is an evening of wedding luxury that envelopes design, exclusive catering and a couture fashion show.

We are super excited for our 5th year of Love is in the Air 2016 (#LIITA2016) and again we have teamed up with Philadelphia Wedding Magazine and over 30 local wedding and event industry vendors. The evening will include a couture fashion show curated by Lovely Bride that showcases their trendiest fashions styles with suits by Henry A Davidsen. Starr Events will host a cocktail reception featuring an innovative cuisine and guests will have the chance to sample sweet treats by Sweet T’s Bakeshop, Velvet Sky Bakery & Café, Whipped Bakeshop, and Little Baby’s Ice Cream. Among the lengthy list of entertainment is 2Life Talent, Philadelphia String Quartet, Dori Spector Fine Artist, and Denise Fike.

Uncommon Events Glamping

We like to think everything we do should be done with style, especially those not so beautiful tasks. So when it comes to camping you know we would go BIG. We recently designed a vignette for a fundraising event in Philadelphia called A Date with a Plate and we used Glamping (glamorous camping) as our inspiration.

With a brand new Raj tent that arrived into Philadelphia the night before the event (this industry always keeps us on our toes) as the canopy, our Creative Director, Jessica Mader created the most glamorous ‘camping’ experiences. We used mixed china from Bloomingdales that was set upon a live edge wood table and Jess created a few smaller vignettes within the tent with some amazing vintage furniture.

Go Pro & Drone Wedding Trends

The 2015 wedding season has been fabulous for our wedding planning and design team and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed being able to incorporate some incredible new wedding trends into our client’s events. One of the newest event elements on our radar is the “Go Pro” or “Drone” wedding.

Go Pro cameras and drones have allowed photographers and videographers to capture super creative shots of your BIG day. These incredible devices can capture every angle of you and your guests. Picture this; an aerial shot of your ceremony that captures every detail of the scenery! The possibilities are endless.

A few months back we planned and designed ‘Love Is in The Air 2015‘, a bridal event at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center in Philadelphia, PA. One of our favorite Philadelphia wedding videographers, Cinemacake Filmmakers captured the incredible evening using a drone. The aerial shots, especially of the Lovely Bride fashion show are to die for!

Take a peek at the amazing video of Love is In The Air 2015!

We can’t wait to incorporate this new trend in our next Philadelphia wedding or event.
