The parade of smitten-worthy weddings is continuing with a stop in Philadelphia and it’s singing a sweet ode to casual elegance and whimsical details all crafted by La Petite Fleur. Sunny stripes, gorgeous flowers, a fabulous cake… it’s all making an appearance and Lori Gail Photography didn’t miss a single smidgen of the goodness. Check out the gallery for a whole lot more.
From La Petite Fleur…We’re sweet on this soiree’s style! This soiree has one of the sweetest looks— not to mention couples— that the La Petite Fleur team has had the pleasure of styling. In fact, designing the details of Lindsay and Josh’s summer sunset wedding at Glen Foerd Mansion was a true collaboration between our team and the bride and groom. Our designers used the couple’s pale sherbet palette and their collection of quaint accessories, which included assorted glassware and buttons, as a springboard to fashion a sweet celebration that exuded sophisticated charm.
As guests arrived at the mansion’s doorstep, the front door proudly displayed a square moss wreath adorned with hand-folded paper wheels and vintage buttons. Also on the porch was the guest sign-in station, which included a cheery yellow and white stripe linen-dressed table displaying an antique framed chalkboard sign that warmly welcomed guests to share well wishes with the Mr. and Mrs. on quilt patches. Behind the estate, LPF set the scene for a picturesque riverside ceremony—decking trees with handcrafted paper pom-poms and setting-up a lemonade stand with an antique-framed sign that invited guests to “pucker-up with a cup.” Peach and yellow parasols were also perched nearby in white aluminum buckets with signs that encouraged guests to “hold them tight, for the sweethearts’ love is bright!” A simple scattering of rose petals framed the aisle, which was flanked by white garden chairs— featuring petite clusters of picture-perfect petals, including pale yellow Lemoncello roses, which adorned ribbon-hung white-washed frames.
The indoor/outdoor cocktail hour featured tables dressed with yellow and white striped floor-length linens topped with a trio of eclectic vessels, including some from the couple’s collection, filled with single stems of white dahlias, yellow craspedia and coral roses. Dinner and dancing took place in Glen Foerd’s expansive conservatory which, in days gone by, had been a tiered slate and stone porch. As guests entered the reception, they were met with an escort bottle display and a flower-shoppe inspired display of aluminum buckets filled with single varieties, including pink peonies, white hydrangea and coral snap dragons, which were sitting on a table draped in a coral linen and finished with a burlap “L-O-V-E” banner.
When it came to the sweetheart table, we also topped that with a yellow and white stripe linen and one of the bride’s blue mason jars (for her bouquet). White chiavari chairs with pale yellow cushions and handmade Mr. and Mrs. flags finished the look. Reception tables were dressed with coral floor-length linens and white chiviarri chairs (pale yellow cushions) and then topped with one of two styles of centerpieces. Half of the tables featured a round garden-inspired arrangement of pink dahlias, green hanging amaranthus, hot pink peonies, asters, yellow roses and a variety of greens in a glass compote perched atop a beribboned, white wood platform. Custom table cards were suspended from wide yellow and white ribbon accented with a vintage button. The other tables featured a collection of containers with white ranunculus, pink peonies, and pale yellow roses on a white truffle stand topped with a cloche adorned with the same custom ribboned table card. Terra cotta pot satellite arrangements set-off the blooms beneath the cloche. Meanwhile, hand-folded wheels, in varying patterns, accented with buttons, sat atop the napkins at each place setting. And although sunlight floods the conservatory during the day, LPF wanted the room’s look to evolve as the event progressed. So, as evening fell, Italian bulb lights twinkled over the dance floor (thanks to our friends at Synergetic Sound and Lighting!).
