You simply can’t deny it, there is something so chic about a city soiree. When you bring skylines and gorgeous gowns together in one place it makes for one stunning juxtaposition, and today that magic happens via the lens of Austin Warnock. It’s bricks and blush, ballrooms and beauties – and it can all be found dancing around in the full gallery of images.
From the Bride… When Mark and I were searching for a venue for our wedding, we had no idea what style, color palette, or type of wedding we wanted. We tossed around just about every idea, from an outdoor garden party to a grand country club event. When we wandered into the Pennsylvanian, we both knew immediately that this was the place! It’s gorgeous rotunda inspired us, not to mention the remarkable architecture, beautiful colors, and elegant details. Once the Pennsylvanian was booked, the champagne and cream color palette, floral design, lighting, table décor, attire and entertainment all came quickly and effortlessly. One special element of our wedding was the tiny personal touches we added…my mother’s old topaz incorporated into my bouquet and my dad’s favorite tie wrapped around the bottom, an old guitar pick from his dad and seashells from his mom in Mark’s tux pocket. We really tried to remember just why we were there, what we were truly celebrating and who got us there.
