This is the Classic Wedding of Every Bride’s Dreams

It’s not often you find a hotel ballroom with clean lines and modern décor, but Lauren and Sean transformed the space, mixing the hotel’s contemporary style with their love of nature through fresh blooms and vines to give it a vineyard feel. And to incorporate the Bride’s love of horses, lucky horseshoes from her beloved horse were scattered amongst the various floral displays. See all the pretty details (including the Bride’s beautiful hairdo from True Beauty Marks), captured by Emily Wren Photography and Squareware Studios, in The Vault!

From Emily Wren PhotographyLauren & Sean were married in Philadelphia on a beautiful September day in 2015. They tied the knot at Old Saint Joseph’s – one of the oldest churches in Philadelphia, located in the Old City section and filled with old world charm. We then strolled down the winding cobblestone streets and brick row homes of Headhouse Square for some portraits that captured some of Philadelphia’s historic character.

They kicked off the wedding reception at Hotel Monaco, with cocktail hour on the rooftop bar, and reception in the main ballroom to follow. Lauren & Sean are both outdoorsy people; Lauren dedicated to riding her horse and Sean to surfing. They brought this love of nature to their decor, mixing the hotel’s modern touches with fresh blooms and vines which recalled the feel of a classic vineyard. To top it off, lucky horseshoes from Lauren’s beloved horse were scattered amongst the various floral displays.

Nautical

From Lauren Fair Photography… Devon and Adam’s summer wedding was all things lush, simple, nautical and classically beautiful. The Gatsby-esque mansion of Glen Foerd Estate was an incredible backdrop for their vision! Oleander Florals and Design brought their vision to life with oversized bouquets of whites and greens, and incorporated textural ropes and sea glass into the reception decor. Their wedding had the most perfect soft golden hour as a jazz band played on the patio and guests mingled together on the waterfront. It was nothing short of magical!

Philadelphia Greenhouse Wedding

It’s been a few years since I walked down the aisle (ok, maybe more than a few), but sometimes I come across a wedding detail that truly makes me wish I could it all over again. Well, let’s just say this gorgeous bride’s stunning Amsale dress totally had me at hello. And really, so did every other detail planned by Truly You Events and captured by Robert And Kathleen Photographers. And it’s all waiting for you in the VAULT.

From Robert And Kathleen PhotographersJenna and Jimmy locked eyes for the very first time in a decidedly unromantic location: a terminal at JFK Airport. But that moment kicked off a whirlwind romance that would change their lives forever. But, there in the airport, they were strangers to one another. Jimmy was drawn to Jenna’s sweet smile; she to his kind eyes. They introduced themselves and were each pleasantly surprised to discover that they were both set to depart for the very same destination – embarking on a Birthright trip to Israel.

They spent the next ten days exploring Israel together. The hours they spent sitting next to each other on a bus taking them from city to city serving as the ultimate series of first dates. They had hours to talk uninterrupted and got to know one another pretty well over those miles traveled together. By the time the trip came to an end, they knew there was something between them that they couldn’t ignore. The end of the trip meant they had to return to their respective homes, which just happened to be on opposite sides of the country – Jimmy in LA, Jenna in Boston. They spent the next year and a half dating long distance, making time each and every day to talk and visiting as often as they could. At the end of the summer in 2012, Jimmy moved to NYC for business school and they were both delighted to finally be in the same time zone. They continued their not-quite-as-long distance for another year as Jenna completed graduate school in Boston.  After Jenna completed her program, they were finally able to live in the same city together, settling into the NYC’s scenic Chelsea neighborhood.  Once again, they explored together; finding new restaurants to visit and enjoying daily runs on the city’s west side.

That spring, Jimmy concocted a ruse to bring Jenna over to one of their favorite spots on the Hudson River. He asked her to walk down Pier 43 – an unusual request, but Jenna didn’t think much of it at the time. When they got down to the end of the pier, Jimmy surprised her by dropping down on one knee and asking her to be his wife. It was the question she had known the answer to since those days together in Israel so many years before.  Of course she would be his wife, they were meant to find each other. This September, they will become husband and wife.
