When Christiane Lehman, owner of Truly You Events, invited us to participate in a styled shoot inspired by the French country side, we said oui without hesitation! This stunning shoot took place at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park, was photographed by the supremely talented Emily Wren Photography, and is featured in the inaugural issue of Modern Luxury Weddings Philadelphia (on shelves now!) We are so honored to have been part of the amazing team of wedding professionals who executed this dreamy French-themed fete.
Gray taper candles and lace linens from Party Rental, vintage chandeliers from Eventions, and chateau style chairs from Vision Furniture, helped create a beautiful, delicate ambiance. In keeping with the theme, we wanted the flowers to feel light and airy, but we also wanted to contrast the soft, muted undertones of the table scape, so we opted for pops of color using quicksand roses, burgundy dahlias, light pink astilbe and purple sweet peas.
The trendy wreath motif was incorporated throughout the event. Everlaser crafted beautifully personalized place settings and cake toppers that we accented with boxwood and waxflowers. Above the sweetheart table from Maggpie Vintage, Everlaser also crafted a large scale wreath that we flowered with fresh greenery. Whipped Bakeshop whipped up their usual magic, and created not one but three gorgeous cakes adorned with hand painted accents and gumpaste florals.
Perhaps our floral piece de resistance was the large scale ceremony hoop, which was made more beautiful by the lovely Claire Mahoney, who wore a lace gown from Lovely Bride. Make up by Aleksandra Ambrozy.
Every detail of the shoot featured exquisite attention to detail. The Papery created gorgeous lavender inspired invitations, and Starr Events served petite French favorites.
