Sophisticated Philadelphia Wedding

One thing is clear from these images by Sarah Der of Kristen and Brendan’s Philadelphia wedding: fun was the theme of the weekend! With all the festivities centered downtown, Kristen says it was easy for guests to get around and explore the City of Brotherly Love. The ceremony was held at the intricately detailed Liberti Church, followed by a chic black and gold reception at The Down Town Club. Following Kristen’s request for lots of pink flowers, Cleavers Petals in the Park fashioned together shades of deep fuchsia and pale blush roses with hydrangeas and dusty miller. Deep turquoise bridesmaids dresses from The Dessy Group provide an additional splash of color. Kristen is breathtaking in a satin strapless St. Patrick gown from Tre Bella, Inc., and a veil trimmed in lace from Modern Trousseau. To ease the stress, Cescaphe Event Group coordinated the planning, design, and other particulars, so Kristen and Brendan could mingle and dance with guests before cutting their gold polka-dot cake–a playful twist on the elegant black and gold decor. We can’t get enough of this gorgeous affair!
