Linley and Matt had the most amazing vision for their wedding day and it was an honor to make their vision come to life. The ceremony was at St. Patricks Church where they had a live choir throughout the ceremony. The reception was at The Logan, where tons of Christmas trees and twinkle lights were awaiting the guests. Linley and Matt were extremely happy and head over heels about the end result of the venue. As the night came to an end, they performed the famous Will Smith song, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" while Philly cheesesteaks were passed around to all of the guests. This amazing Christmas wedding absolutely stole our hearts and we wish much love and happiness to this beautiful couple as this wedding will be in our hearts forever!
Let's talk about this dress... This dress was designed by the bride and Priscilla Costa - starting with just a sketch on a piece of paper. The feather and sequin design made every sway and movement completely breathtaking. This dress is a one of a kind, just like the bride!!!
Cocktail hour and the reception was at The Logan - where a custom-made champagne tower was waiting for each guest topped with a cinnamon sugar rim, a dash of rosemary and cranberries with each flute. The champagne tower really helped to tie together the vision of Christmas and class. The reception area was filled with lit-up Christmas trees, wreaths, red and burgundy florals and candles - it was truly a wonderland.
Not shown: the 3 costume changes this band did throughout their performance. They were one of the most interactive bands we've ever experienced and they sure knew how to bring a party to the dance floor!
Christina and Bartley were a dream couple, inside and out, I mean just look at these photos... The theme was elegant, sophisticated and it turned out to be absolutely stunning!! The ceremony was at Saint Agatha Saint James and the reception was at the amazing Waterworks. At the end of the night, they were surprised with a beautiful 10 minute firework show that brought tears to their eyes. And MY favorite part - the exit - which was everything but basic, an awesome decorated truck and their 2 beloved dogs in the trunk waiting to give them lots and lots of kisses. This couple was such a ray of sunshine and we loved working with them every step of the way to make sure their wedding was perfect, and boy it was!!!
Emily and Chase shared their different cultures in a beautiful, two-day celebration at the most amazing venues. Friday, they had their Hindu Ceremony at The Logan Hotel in Philadelphia with a red, pink and gold color scheme. Saturday, was a magical, sophisticated and classy setting with greenery and white florals dripping from the ceiling of a spectacular sail cloth tent. This couple was completely in awe of each other, and as were we... Emily and Chase share a love for McDonalds, so of course we made sure to pick-up tons of take-out food for the couple and the guests to enjoy late night. This two-day celebration was nothing less than perfection and we were truly grateful to be a part of their special day!

This awesome couple was so much fun during the planning process and even more so on the day of!! This wedding was a simple, classic and rustic-chic wedding at the beautiful, Bartsrams Garden. Jessie and Rudi had an amazing choreographed dance for their first dance, that stunned the audience (and us too)!! They also had a cool and unique glow party with glasses, glow sticks and necklaces that was simply the icing on the cake! We love a wedding that we can add a new funky feel to the party! Congratulations Jessie and Rudi and good luck with all of your future endeavors!
Be prepared... This is going to be a long one because of how much we LOVE this couple!!! This was a "fedding" as the guests were calling it, but what sure wasn't fake was the absolute love and happiness between this couple. Caitlin & Yousuf had a weekend-long celebration of their love, instead of the traditional wedding ceremony and reception. Caitlin has a love for books because she is a teacher and Yousuf loves Prince, so as you see all of the purple color schemes and book centerpieces, they really put their style into this celebration. Because of how amazing and unique this celebration was, we published Caitlin and Yousuf's celebration to Philadelphia Wedding Magazine and they were also interviewed on Fox 29 News! I love that they did not subside to society norms, and they stuck to what they believed in - true love and the celebration of happiness!
This famous YouTuber caught our eyes and stole our hearts with her sense of humor, smile and laugh. As you can see, she is absolutely stunning and knew how to work the camera, these pictures are absolutely amazing! We had the pleasure of working with this bride for 2 years, as she hired us when she was 22 years old. This was our first time working at this venue / location, and we absolutely fell in love with this spot- I mean, look how beautiful!! Side note, Sam (our Associate Planner) is getting married here in the future...
This breathtaking Armenian couple completely stole our hearts with their absolute love and affection for each other. At any moment of this beautiful day, August 17th 2018, we saw them with a huge smile on their face and their hands on each other. They could not wait to walk down the aisle and be officially married, that's all the wanted throughout the day. The bohemian vibe that Janeen and Dave wanted for their wedding was portrayed perfectly with the combination of amazing florals, outdoor venue, and nag for details, not to mention her amazing dress and flower crown. All she wanted was an outdoor wedding with a lot of flowers and greenery, the perfect dress and her friends and family around her. This wedding was so unique in so many ways, with flower crowns, dream catchers, and canoes as a self-serve bar. Also, the father and the bride sang together with the band, but they not only sang but blew the guests away with their amazing voices. We absolutely loved Janeen and Dave, and wish we could plan this wedding allover again, (although we wouldn’t change a thing) !! :)
College sweethearts, Amanda and Daniel, said their "I do's" at The Logan Hotel, on the 1st of June. Starting off with Acrylic invitations, it quickly became Acrylic everything; the itinerary, the welcome boxes, programs, menus, the signs, escort cards and the ballroom. Amanda and Daniels vision of their ceremony and ballroom came to life and it radiated through their faces as it was revealed. The music, the toasts and the smile on all of the guests faces revolved around the bride and groom. It was truly a night to remember! The fun didn't stop after the live band stopped, there was a huge candy bar, a cigar bar with imported cigars and even an after party. This group sure knew how to have a good time! We had a ball planning and coordinating the wedding. Amanda and Daniel, you deserved nothing less than perfection. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, laughter, and love.
Katharine and Morgan made it official on April 27th, 2019 at the historical, Red Fox Inn Courtyard Garden. The flowery feel didn't end at the invitation's, the bridesmaids gowns were embroidered with floral designs as well as Katharine's beautiful wedding gown, the floral accents in the garden, center pieces and the beautifully designed bouquets. Katharine and Morgan could not take their eyes off of each other the entire night, and we couldn't take our eyes off of them! The cake was absolutely beautiful, but the truly unique part about it was, they cut it with Morgan's grandfathers WWII sword, given to the groom after he passed away, now that was a first for Kyle Michelle Weddings! It was truly an amazing tribute to witness! This wedding was beyond beautiful, Katharine and Morgan were amazing, and all of the flowers made the entire wedding perfect. We are so happy for the couple and wish them a lifetime of laughter and love together.
Being a wedding planner for so many years, we have witnessed an uprising in cell phone usage during the ceremony. So we are here to say, save the hashtags until after the #ceremony. Not only is using your phone disrespectful to the bride and groom and their wishes, but it is also an interruption to the photographers, videographers, and the wedding planners. We get a lot of guests sticking their arms right in the middle of the photographers shot, on their phones recording the ceremony, phones ringing, etc. Don't get us wrong, we love you, we just don't love your phones ;)
The attention should be on the bride and groom, directly, not through a screen, trust me, she will look more gorgeous in person! We can obtain this, by going to the ceremony unplugged, unattached to your phone for an hour or so, and refrain from unwarranted photo shoots in the middle of the aisles. While focusing all your energy on that exact, present, moment, one might come to find a sense of relief without their phone attached to their fingertips and appreciate the sacredness of a wedding ceremony. Everyone needs to be #unplugged sometimes, so leave the phone off and have an amazing time!
Refrain from things like; flash photography, being in the photographers / videographers shot, getting in their way, or being in the way of the bride and groom. These photos are expensive, timely, and most importantly, one of the biggest momentous that will come from the wedding. odds are they’re getting their photos taken all day and night long, so just look pretty, smile and wave! :)
Some couples request signs that state things like this; “Hold the Phone!” “Call it a day! NO PHONES” or simply, “No phone’s or picture taking during the ceremony.” This is an awesome and cute way to incorporate this rule, without being rude or bossy, because who wants any of that at a wedding?? Not us!
Thank you so much for understanding!!! We love you!!!
