Modern + Chic Philadelphia Wedding

My recent craving? A modern beauty. A fete packed with a touch of sparkle, a pop of color and a hint of ballroom elegance. Lauren Gabrielle delivered exactly that with this Princeton to Philadelphia wedding that now happily lives in our galleries. And beyond those gorgeous details (hello, cake perfection!), live pretty portraits captured by Lauren that’ll sweep you right off your feet.

From Lauren Gabrielle PhotographyKellie and Jeff met in the lively New Jersey Shore town of Belmar, NJ. Jeff was renting a beach house for the summer, and Kellie was invited down by a mutual friend for a July 4th celebration. After they were introduced, they realized that they must have met many years ago because they grew up in the same hometown where Kellie’s father was Jeff’s soccer coach. After they met, Kellie was a frequent visitor to the beach house the remainder of the summer…and the rest is history!

When we began our venue search, we were hoping to find a unique venue with an open layout and beautiful views. When we first visited the Down Town Club, it was under a complete renovation. Even through all of the dust and noisy power tools, we immediately fell in love with the space. The unique Colonial feel, the breathtaking views of historic downtown Philadelphia, and Cescaphe’s impeccable reputation sold us on this amazing location. Although we were not able to see the final product until a few months later, we already knew that there was nowhere else that we could imagine celebrating the most important day of our lives with our closest friends and family.

Philadelphia Blush Pink Ballroom Wedding

Blush pink is one of those wedding colors that just never gets old, so when this couple chose it as the main hue behind their Philly ballroom affair it only made sense. They brought on the talents of Proud To PlanPetah Bashano and Chick Designs to bring their timeless wedding vision to life, and Hudson Nichols delivered big time behind the camera. See it all right over here.

From The Bride…Brendan and I wanted our wedding day to be a celebration of our love, as well as all of the amazing people in our lives that brought us together. We are so blessed to have two very big and close knit families, as well as many mutual friends since we went to Penn State together. It is definitely a good time crew, and we knew that our reception would be a huge party… so naturally we started with the band! We fell in love with the ballroom at the Philadelphia Cricket Club because of its big beautiful windows that line the back of the room, and the dance floor with ample space to dance the night away.

As for the florals and all of the little details, Brendan did what any good Fiance would and nodded his head yes as I worked closely with my mom, my wedding planner and our florist to craft the perfect Shabby Chic, vintage-inspired look for the reception. We were blown away by the final product and we had SUCH a blast! Though as much fun as the reception was, both of us say our favorite part was seeing each other for the first time as my dad walked me down the aisle- we could not wipe the smiles off our faces. I wish I could relive that day a million times over!!

Homemade and heartfelt, this intimate brunch ceremony is without a doubt a dreamy. Overflowing with Splints & Daisies blooms, the sound of birds serenaded guests while they dinned family style filling vintage crockery with secret family recipes. While the newlyweds toasted over champagne and a stunning Bredenbeck’s Bakery sugar confection, With Love And Embers captured every detail here!

From With Love And Embers… Jenn & Jim’s weddings was hosted on the beautiful and lush ground of the Pearl S. Buck International Estate. Their day was nothing short of magical with the sounds of the birds serenading them and their guests for their intimate ceremony and brunch. They filled their reception with personal touches including family recipes, and Jenn’s own personal jam.

They hosted their reception as an intimate brunch for a few friends and family which made their wedding reception feel less like a reception and more like a family reunion. They enjoyed with their guests a family style served brunch, champagne and an assortment of desserts all over amazing conversation and plenty of laughter. Jenn is very much into flowers and her parents had grown peonies when she was younger, so it was a big part of their wedding day to have some of the most beautiful and creative flowers to welcome them and their guests with. The love they shared between the two of them and their guests that day was so heart warming and such an honor to be a part of and capture.
