This wedding was classic, elegant, and traditional with modern elements to personalize the special day for the beautiful bride and her groom. This wedding was a celebration of many special details: our client loves to entertain and treat their guests to amazing food, music, and florals. This wedding was a career-high!
The wedding ceremony took place inside the historic St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. The bride and her mom wanted their guests to enjoy a glass of champagne to celebrate right after the ceremony. Guests were treated to Veuve Clicquot and Blue Point Oysters on the half shell from our friends at 13th Street Cocktails. Their pop-up bar van was parked right in the church courtyard…the guests loved it!
We transported guests via shuttles to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, so that they could completely enjoy the day and not have to worry about parking and navigating the city.
A very special cocktail reception for guests was featured in the Great Stair Hall. Constellation Culinary prepared lavish food displays and tasty specialty cocktails. We invited the guests to walk up the stairs to the balcony to be served a formal sit-down dinner with a choice of entree at the table.
The 40-foot long head table was placed in front of the vast window where they enjoyed a view of the spectacular statue of Diana and gorgeous views of Philadelphia.
We loved working with this bride and her mom; they truly enjoyed focusing on the little details such as beautiful and thoughtful paper elements. We worked with Vanessa of Two Paper Dolls to create all of the specialty stationery details: invitation, welcome letters, ceremony program, and menus.
After a dress change (yes the bride wore two gowns!), the couple was formally introduced and they made their grand entrance walking down the iconic grand staircase with the Diana of the Tower statue behind them. The bride’s gorgeous bridal gown, with stunning lace and floral details, was Zuhair Murad; and her contemporary dancing dress was Liancarlo from Elizabeth John’s Bridal.
The Right Mix kicked off the first dance set and the guests danced the night away.
As the reception started winding down, we handcrafted beautiful floral bouquets made from the English garden style floral arrangements to hand out to the guests. Everyone loved being able to take a piece of the special evening home with them.
To mark the end of the evening, guests lined the museum’s iconic stairway on the east terrace overlooking the city, with sparklers in hand to send off the bride and groom as they drove away in a bright red, vintage car.
We love working at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and look forward to its reopening in the fall of 2020!
