You just can’t go wrong with a wedding at home. Especially when you deck it out from top to bottom with blooms as bright as these babies! Thanks to Fleur De Lis for their talent and mkPhoto for capturing it all, we have a uber colorful (aka uber perfect) Vault gallery to dive into today – right this way!

From mkPhoto… Micaela Carrasco and John Gallagher planned a super exciting wedding in a surprisingly short time. They imagined summer outdoor event and when none of the venues they considered offered quite the right combination, they decided to transform their home and yard into the perfect setting. No detail was left to chance and a team of extraordinarily talented and creative minds worked together to create a dream wedding.
The dress, shoes, flower, the home – every detail was stunning. The combination of the back yard sophistication was a pleasure to capture. The wedding day could not have been any more perfect including a quick trip to Longwood Gardens for portraits. Micaela and John tied the knot at home and will always remember their perfect day when they are relaxing on their deck and watching the sunset over the field.
From the Bride… John and I were friends for years and were co-workers. We were both in outside sales and had a strong passion for sales. That common interest among many other shared interests brought us together. We quickly fell in love and knew that we both wanted the same things out of life: family, travel, laughter and excitement. We were quickly engaged during the Christmas Season 2015, our favorite holiday. John proposed in New York City on the Bow Bridge in Central Park.
I was able to plan a beautiful wedding at home in just six short months. I asked a lot of questions and valued vendor recommendations on who to use. My dress was purchased at the Wedding Pavillion and was a Pronovias design. My shoes were Jimmy Choo and jewelry was by Thomas Knoll and flowers were Fleur-de-Lis. The Styled Bride helped with the day of planning and the event was catered by Max Hansen. Claudia Seyler did hair and makeup. Event Quip did the tent and lighting. MK did the wonderful photography ;)
The best advice we could give is that the details make the event. The more detailed you can be the better things will turn out. Let people know what your vision is and ask how to get what you had in mind!

From Rachel Pearlman Photography … A combination of modern meets historic is the best way to describe this stunning summer wedding in historic Philadelphia. Jess and Mark met at the University of Pittsburgh, and once engaged they knew that a wedding in the City of Brotherly Love was not negotiable. Jess is from Philadelphia, so the couple had spent a lot of time in the area and were drawn to the architecture and charm of historic Old City. Once they saw The Downtown Club, founded in 1897 in true Georgian Revival Style, their vision of a neutral color scheme – complete with modern additions- started to come together beautifully. Luxurious details included mixing ghost chairs with golden urns and neutral linens for an unexpected twist. Their cake included cascading sugar flowers dusted in gold. As Mark and Jess were introduced, a canon of rose petals was released on the dance floor. During their ceremony, the couple’s wedding bands were hidden under the chair of a ‘mystery guest’, who was called to act as their ring bearer during vows!
