Sarah and Neil's January 11th, 2014 wedding started our year off at the spectacular Franklin Institute. This one of a kind venue, smack in the middle of Philadelphia reminds you of Philadelphia's historic importance. The grandeur of the room provides the perfect ambiance for laughter and fun. And Sarah and Neil's wedding was just that! Their ceremony was held at St. Marons Church in Philadelphia, a quaint church dating back to 1887.
Sarah's smile lit up the entire room-she was glowing!
After a heartfelt ceremony came dinner and dancing! The guests enjoyed all The Franklin Institute has to offer while Touche entertained the crowd all night.
Congratulations Sarah and Neil!!!! We wish you all the happiness life can offer.
As the guests pulled down the wooded Princeton path of the Mountain Lakes House, they thought they were gathered to surprise Jess for her 30th birthday/engagement proposal, but little did they know... they were in for a surprise of their own. Seated around the patio all were wondering where the honorees were, and out came two close friends of Jess & Maya. The bridesmaids broke the news of their dear friends, that in fact Jess had already said "Yes!" and they were there to witness their wedding. Cheers and laughter overcame the crowd and the festivities began. Their vows were shared on the lawn with a gorgeous lake backdrop and a floral laden arbor. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, but the brides... breathtaking.
Cheers to Jess and Maya Chil-son!
During the reception the guests had great games like: life-size Jenga and corn hole to play. After they took photos in the booth, they could glue it to the guest book or go out to the fire pit to roast some s'mores.
Love is sweet.

We are really excited to introduce the newest member of our Kyle Michelle Weddings family!
Emily grew up with two older sisters who surrounded her with only the best music – Backstreet Boys, 'N SYNC, and Spice Girls. Having been raised by a father who initially wanted a son but ended up with three girls, Emily was always driven to try out various sports and activities including soccer, swimming, gymnastics, track, and lacrosse. When she fell down she was told to "rub some dirt in it," which is exactly how she lives her life. Today, she is a devoted cheerleader for the University of Pennsylvania as well as a competitive runner in half marathons across the country. Although she was surrounded by girls growing up, Emily's true role model has always been her father. As a result, she constantly pushes herself to live her life to the fullest, put her best effort into everything she works on, and to pick herself back up and march on if she ever is to fall.
While the Diaz sisters are known to be competitive with one another, they always support each other through every endeavor they face. Her eldest sister has recently finished her first year of medical school at the University of Texas at San Antonio while her other older sister just graduated from Duke University. Emily hopes to live up to her sisters' outstanding reputations as she continues on with her undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where she plans on majoring in Communications as well as minoring in Classical Studies and Consumer Psychology. After graduation, Emily aims to go to business school, earn an MBA degree, and begin working in the wedding planning industry.
