It’s always exciting when I get to say I’m featured on a wedding blog! I teamed up with an incredible group of Philadelphia wedding professionals for a styled shoot at the College of Physicians. The venue is steeped in historic Philadelphia charm, and I love the deep tones the space provided. Plus, there are few places more fitting than the College for a photo shoot inspired by a painting.
Amanda Sanford of An Intentional Event designed this styled look around the painting Portrait of a Lady with a Book by Antione Vestier. Of course, book details were included, like the table numbers, but the team also relied on classic details, like a navy blue and pink palette accented with gold and stripes, to carry the inspiration throughout the design.
I was delighted to design the invitation suite, and I quickly became drawn to bold, yet classic flowers. I love creating interesting pops of color – something a little unexpected is always necessary – and I adored the floral envelope liner from this suite! The invitation was designed by yours truly and the envelope was calligraphed by Rachael Marks of Tallulah Ketubahs, and the gold ink and beautiful script made the invitation feel that much more luxurious. The inserts were printed digitally with navy ink (a great way to keep a budget in check for a wedding!), and the suite was tied together with lace and twine.
In addition to the beautiful florals and book details, you will also notice few April Lynn Designs pieces on the table! I designed the menus and place cards with the navy color palette in mind. I loved how these additional stationery pieces accented the invitation and the shoot’s overall look!
It’s safe to say you will love the images Ashley Gerrity Photography captured, and I can’t encourage you enough to hop over to Dream Weddings to see even more! I seriously need one of the cake pops from Desserts by Dana, and I would not turn away any of the bouquets by Leigh Florist either! Enjoy!
