Leila and Dan’s Philadelphia wedding was simple, minimal and took place in an urban loft space, Power Plant Productions.
“We wanted to make our wedding have more of a party feel instead of a stuffy affair”, said the bride. “I didn’t really have any inspiration as such, I don’t use Pinterest, so I just found things I liked! We had our reception cocktail style with a mix of high tops and low tables and three food stations (a mac and cheese bar, a build your own taco satiation and an Thai food station). There was no assigned seating either so people could move around however they saw fit.”
They were married in front of a homemade backdrop and the venue was decorated throughout with simple mason jar and baby’s breath centrepieces. They also had a slight cat theme with their cake topper and some of the decor.
Keri and Sean wanted a wedding theme that included dinosaurs, gnomes, Harry Potter and zombies! They hoped the day would be full of the things they like, to reflect themselves, and to be super relaxed and a whole lot of fun!
However, they had a slightly rocky start to the day! “I was late to the ceremony because the wheel fell off the bridal car, rolled across the road and landed at the side of the river!” laughed Keri. “Thankfully there were no causalities! We then jumped into the VW Campervan and made our way to the venue – 40 minutes late!”
Sami and Aaron were married at Elysian, a private garden sand event space in Los Angeles. The venue definitely inspired their theme which ended up having a garden vibe with urban touches.
“We got married in a really beautiful outdoor garden area”, said the bride, “and that inspired the design and colour scheme that we chose. Our beautiful ceremony was written by my friends, Craig and Brenda, that happen to be incredibly talented, published poets. We knew we wanted to have a friend officiate us and they immediately popped into my head and they were perfect.”
“You can’t tell by the photos, but it was 108 degrees outside! Literally it was the hottest day of the year! So the ceremony was a perfect length, about 20 minutes, considering, and everyone was very patient and enjoyed it very much which was great to hear! Because it was so hot out, we decided against doing ‘first look’ and opted to see each other for the first time at the ceremony. Leading up to the wedding I kept asking Aaron if he would cry during our vows. He is a very sensitive man, but not a huge crier, so mainly I was joking. But when I walked up the aisle and we saw each other for the first time, I saw tears in his eyes and I said, ‘Don’t you do this to me!'”
