This summer wedding took place at the New York Historical Society. It was one of the most beautiful days to say "I Do" and boy do the pictures show it... Elizabeth, David and their guests dined in front of the largest Picasso in North America - which was perfect as they were both lovers of history and art. The design was so simple, yet so unique at the same time - with greenery, white florals and cumquats stuck in each structure to give it a summery and bright flare - perfect color scheme for a summer wedding!
Just wait until you see this beautiful couple...
This wedding was such a breathe of fresh (sea) air. Jessica and AJ were so adorable and giddy throughout their day - no one had to force them to smile for a picture - as you can see from the below photos... They exchanged their "I Do's" at Saint Marys Church and continued their celebration at Bonnet Island Estate. The sophisticated color scheme, acrylic details, and florals put a classy feel on this black-tie, LBI Wedding.
This day was so perfect and we wish we could see their smiling faces all over again!
This exit was everything and made for the perfect photo-op! Everyone sees rice, flower petals and even sparklers - but who has ever done bubblers before? Love this!
This green wall was the perfect statement piece for this wedding. This is a great way to do your escort board as well as add a funky neon sign for flare! A little tip for all you engaged couples - when looking for a LED sign for your wedding day, buy something that you can re-use (in a man cave or a bar)!!
And to end... This photo-op was amazing! We love you Jessica & Andrew!
Kelly and Bryan were such an awesome couple to work with and needless to stay, they absolutely adored each other - wait til you see these photos... They got married at The Burden Kahn Mansion in New York City where the couple showed their love for books and all things out of the ordinary. She had custom table #'s from all her favorite romance novels and famously in-love characters - like Romeo & Juliet and Ross & Rachel from Friends! What better way of celebrating love then with it literally all around you?
The dress... This dress is one of my favorite dresses we've seen. The dress was a show stopper with its detail in the wrap which came off at the end of the night leaving a new, hot look for the bride - 2 for the price of 1!
The night ended with a magical walk through of sparklers and lots and lots of kissing! Congratulations Kelly and Bryan!

Marty and Mike got married at the amazing Horticulture Center which fit their "exotic jungle theme" wedding to perfection. A wedding has never come around in full circle like this one - starting with the invitations to the florals, the entire design of this wedding just bled into each other perfectly. As you will see scrolling through these pictures the entire wedding from start to finish fit their personalities just flawless. Very colorful, bubbly, and so outgoing. This couple was stunning inside and out and we absolutely loved planning this amazing wedding!
Marty was the most amazing bride - she completely put her trust in us as wedding planners which made the experience super easy and calming. She was so bubbly, happy, in love and obviously, STUNNING!!
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!

Having a wedding at your family home is such a unique experience and it made Cassie and Luke's day even more special. The renovated barn in Pilesgrove, NJ was so picturesque it would be a surprise to anyone that it wasn't an actual wedding venue. We were here for Cassie's sister LeeAnn's wedding and couldn't wait to work with another member of the family! The weather was perfect and the party atmosphere didn't stop all night. Take a look at this amazing wedding!
The bouquets were a perfect match to the burgundy bridesmaids dresses.
The barn with the hanging greenery is everything!!
Thank you Cassie and Luke for letting us be a part of your special day!!
'This September day was a day to remember for Ali and Caleb's Wedding. Ali's family home made the perfect setting for pictures and Pomme in Radnor, PA was the best venue to have Ali and Caleb's vision for their wedding come to life. Enjoy these pictures by Love Me Do Photography!
We love these unique and amazing bridesmaids dresses!
The floral arrangements by Cottage Flowers really pulled everything together!
Thank you Ali and Caleb for letting us be a part of your special day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!
This wedding is one I will never forget. From the moment we met, we clicked and the wedding planning began. First stop, Water Works, the best wedding venue in Philadelphia, in my professional opinion, and Kelly and Dario agreed. Enjoy this stunning wedding and the beautiful photography from Danfredo.
Stunning stationery from Love Leigh Invitations, this water color overlay is magical!
From our in house inventory we added these chair sashes for the aisle chairs and moved them to surround the head table-which was perfect!
This is why I love what I do. I presented Kelly with this dance floor and without hesitation she was on board. We set it on the diagonal for more interest and centered under the massive chandelier. Thanks to Bobby Morganstein for these beautiful pieces.
The perfect touches were these acrylic table numbers and place cards, small details that make a big impression.
We loved planning this wedding, getting to know this truly sweet couple and their families!
Congratulations Kelly & Dario!

In honor of today's National Championship Game, we thought you'd like these fun ways of including your alama mater into your big day! Check out these fun ideas!
1. Color palette
For those of you who prefer to keep it simple, choosing your school's colors as the theme for your wedding is great way to show school spirit and take pride in your alma mater. This purple and orange color palette would be the perfect fall combo for any Clemson Tiger grad.
2. Engagement Photos
Maybe you've already chosen the theme for your wedding, but you're still looking for a way to incorporate your alma mater. Engagement photos provide the perfect opportunity to do just that! Plus, this could be the perfect excuse to head back to campus and visit your favorite spots- making new memories that will last a lifetime!
3. Save the Date
Save the dates are a totally unique way to show school spirit as it relates to your wedding. This is chance for you and your fiancé to be creative and have fun while you continue to plan for your big day! Go casual like this Texas A&M couple who revealed their date on a rally rag or think outside of the box like these Penn State grads who emulated a Nittany Lion football ticket!
4. Cuff Links
Whether you are the bride-to-be, best man, or parents of the groom, surprising the groom with pair of cuff links from his alma mater is a gesture he is sure to appreciate. Not to mention, it's the perfect accessory to spruce up his wedding day ensemble. University of Alabama and University of Texas grads would love these timeless cuff links.
Similar to cuff links, garters are a fun accessory to express individuality and/or love for your alma mater. Show some pride by rocking a garter with your school's colors or mascot; or, surprise your spouse by wearing a garter that represents their school! They'll be totally shocked when they go to take it off during the reception. Either way, it could be the perfect something blue or just the final touch you're looking for before you walk down the isle.
6. Pom Poms
Instead of throwing rice, have your guests wave pom poms as you and your spouse leave the ceremony to enter the world as a newly married couple. Or, if you'd like, you can use them as you arrive and depart from the reception. No matter what you decide, your guests will enjoy themselves and they make for great pictures!
7. Wedding Photos
Getting married on campus or live near your college town? Your alma mater could serve as the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos, be it before or after the ceremony.
Throw the traditional guestbook out the window and grab your favorite jersey or college t-shirt to have guests sign! Frame it after the wedding and hang it up in your house to add a little spirit decor. Or if don't want to ruin your favorite shirt, use a sign related to your alma mater. Any one of these University of Michigan items would look great in a Wolverine home- and imagine how much more special they would be with signatures from friends and family!
9. Photo Booth
If you opt for a photo booth, having props that represent your alma mater is great way to get guests in the "game day" spirit. Plus, fellow graduates are sure to love it!
10. Grooms Cake
Grooms Cakes are becoming quite popular and what a creative way to show some appreciation for your soon-to-be husband! Any University of North Carolina grad would love this unique interpretation of a Tarheel and Mountaineers would take pride in this classic West Virginia University logo! Plus it's cake so, really, who wouldn't love it?
11. Cake Topper
How adorable are these mascots as cake toppers? We're obsessed and what's especially nice about these is it doesn't matter whether you and your significant other went to the same school! They're so fun and such an awesome way to show school spirit. Check out Garden4Arts on Etsy for more details!
You can never go wrong with dessert (...or food in general) so send your guests home with an alma mater inspired cookie! They'll be sure to thank you for this tasty treat after a fun-filled night.
Hiring your school's mascot to come take part in your wedding reception is a once in a lifetime opportunity! If you and your fiancé are die hard alumni, you should definitely consider trying to make it happen. It will be an unforgettable moment that you and your loved ones will cherish forever!
14. Fight Song
Play your school's fight song to get you and your guests amped for the long night of partying ahead! Not only is this a great way to take pride in your alma mater, but a great way to get everyone up and on the dance floor! This is the perfect chance to show off your moves and will without a doubt have you feeling like you're back at school for game day.
So it's been a year-hard to believe Marie and Michael married 12-13-14 and a year later we wish we were still planning their wedding at Congress Hall! We thought their 1 year anniversary was the perfect opportunity to blog their awesome day!
