Classic Weddings
Classic. Chic. Timeless. These three words could describe a multitude of different weddings we feature weekly on SMP - but I think the definition of classic, chic, and timeless is THIS Philadelphia wedding. It doesn't get much better than this. Captured by the ever so talented Susan Stripling Photography, the entire affair is filled to the brim with gorgeous flowers, fabulous style, and historic Philly landmarks. It's pure black and white (with a little kiss of pink) perfection in the form of a wedding. When you're ready for more, click here to see the full image gallery!
From Susan Stripling Photography ... Rachel and Brian were married in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 9, 2011.  Rachel and her bridesmaids got ready for the day at the gorgeous AKA Rittenhouse Hotel and then walked to meet Brian for the first time in Philadelphia's historic center city Rittenhouse Square.

The ceremony was at another Philadelphia landmark, the gorgeous Christ Church.  Built in 1695 Christ Church features the tomb of Benjamin Franklin.  After the ceremony the guests walked to the reception at TRUST, a beautiful old city Philadelphia venue right next to the historic Betsy Ross House.  Built in 1902, TRUST was first an exchange bank before becoming a home to seafarers from around the world.  In 1977 it was named as one of Philadephia's Historic Places and since then has been home to the cast of the Real World in 2004 and is now one of Philadelphia's most unique and beautiful wedding venues.

All florals were done by Philadelphia's Offshoots Decor and the catering was by another Philadelphia wedding favorite, Feastivities.
