From the Bride… After nine years of dating, our families could not wait for this wedding. We knew we wanted our wedding to be simple, have really great food, and for everyone to dance the night away. Our venue was not only the perfect mix of urban modern and rustic I was looking for, but it also had a guacamole bar, which played a bigger part in my decision that I’d like to admit. I mean, guacamole and fish tacos at a wedding? Sold!

The week of the wedding we received news of a hurricane almost as bad as Sandy could be hitting the area. I was so worried my out-of-town guests flying in (and two out of six girls in my bridal party!) wouldn’t make it. Also my dreams of having lush outdoor photos were dashed. I emailed my photographer a couple dozen times asking for all of the “indoor” places we could take pictures if the weather ended up not holding up. There was no hurricane here, but definitely not beautiful weather. The best part is that not only did my bridal party make it, our pictures were beyond gorgeous and I’m so happy we didn’t get to take the photos outside. The architecture of the train station and platform are some of my favorites!

Our wedding ceremony was officiated by our sister-in-law, and her son was the ring bearer. It was really important to us to have someone we know and love guide us through such a significant step in our lives. It was also important to us to honor both families traditions, our ceremony was beautiful and extremely personal.

Thanks to our awesome DJ, we had the most amazing dance party. All of our friends and family had such a great time. I don’t think my husband and I left the dance floor all night. It was even better than I could have imagined!

Classic

From Rachel Pearlman PhotographyStyle Blogger Kendall Johnson of Styled Snapshots loves fall, fashion, and her hometown, so naturally an October affair in Philadelphia was a done deal for her wedding to Matthew Kremer. As a well known fashion blogger renowned for her classic and timeless fashion sense, Kendall’s overall design goal was to implement the spirit of autumn, while keeping things feminine and blended. After an intimate church ceremony at an historic Philadelphia chapel, Kendall and Matt celebrated at The Ballroom at the Ben — the very backdrop of the famous dancing scene between Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence of ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ How fun!

Kendall’s gown was a creme beauty from Stefan Jolie, which was complimented by gray gowns by Donna Morgan, who also collaborated with Kendall on her big day. Synderela, a bespoke wedding down designer based in New York, collaborated with Kendall on the flower girl tutus. Kendall chose gold and glittery Kate Spade for her pumps and clutch, adding pops of sparkle to her chic, classic look.

The NYC-based couple collaborated with a few amazing vendors to bring their vision to life; Minted designed the couples’ classic white invitation suite with grey script. Simple gold and creme place-cards and a custom drink menu were perfectly elegant. BHLDN supplied some most amazing decor for the ballroom – table numbers, cocktail votives, champagne flutes, cake knife and server, and an envelope holder. Kendall’s idea to paint pumpkins gold was an elegant nod to fall, that kept with the formality of her venue. Chrissy from Market Fresh Florals is a family friend and worked directly with Kendall to bring her vision to life.

Philadelphia is Kendall’s hometown, and The Ballroom at the Ben is one of Philadelphia’s oldest wedding venues. It was used for the infamous dancing scene between Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in the Academy Award winning film ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. St. Peter’s Church has an incredible history, and many revolutionary war heroes are buried in its’ ceremony. The first service at St. Peter’s Church was held on September 4, 1761, and the church has been in continuous use ever since. After Kendall and Matt made the decision that they would get married at St. Peter’s Church (found by happenstance while roaming the City), Kendall’s mother revealed that she lived across the street at one point and would look at this church daily, never in a million years dreaming of having a daughter who would then one day get married there.

Touch of Boho Jewel-Toned Wedding Inspiration

I’m generally pretty neutral when it comes to color, tossing in a dash of happy hue in here and there. But this dose of jewel-toned inspo from Brianna WilburLaurel & Elm EventsPetals With Style and team has me re-thinking everything. It’s the definition of cheer (who doesn’t want a cheerful wedding?!) and you can soak up more color-love right here in THE VAULT.

Bohemian

From Brianna Wilbur PhotographyOne of the greatest things about being a photographer is feeding your creative soul by finding like minded creatives to make something lovely happen just for the purpose of celebrating our mutual love of beautiful things. I have been forever drawn to Anna Campbell gowns. Lora of Laurel & Elm Events and myself both were feeling very inspired by jewel tones in general – rich navy, plums, merlots, emeralds and purples. We desired to create a shoot around this color scheme that was a bit moody yet remained romantic, sophisticated, slightly european feeling, with a touch of bohemian flair. We carried our jewel theme through the shoot from the cake, the jeweled chocolates & chocolate bark, the bride’s bold eye shadow, the groom’s suit, the florals, place cards, tablescape, and the setting itself. We love how we kept this shoot very detailed & styled but realistic & in reach for future brides to work with! The bride’s braid was the perfect touch to keep this shoot feeling relaxed & undone. It rained the entire day, however, the overcast sky only added to the specialness of this inspirational bridal shoot. It’s also wonderful proof to future brides that beautiful images can be made amongst dreary weather. We hope you love this as much as we do! Every single person involved was so enthusiastic about making every little detail of this shoot wonderful!
