While Angela and Blake were planning their March 10, 2017 wedding day, a fete that felt completely luxurious was their greatest wish. We set the tone with a black, ivory, and gold wedding invitation that also thoughtfully incorporated Philadelphia’s famed details, including the skyline. It was clear from the first peek of the couple’s monogram that they were invited to a wedding that would feel as luxurious as it did glamorous. But, that’s what any couple or guest would expect when their venue is Cescaphe Ballroom.
On their wedding day, Angela and Blake spent time prepping with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. I have to say how much I love Angela’s first look with her dad. It’s clear her expression says it all – she was overjoyed! And, it’s obvious how excited Blake was too.
Angela walked down the aisle toward Blake at St. Augustine Church. The outside represents the city’s classic architecture perfectly, while the inside brought dramatic lighting for Angela and Blake to recite their vows.
Post ceremony, Angela and Blake joined together with their guests at Cescaphe Ballroom. I’ve said this before, but it’s worth mentioning again – the location and beauty of this space can never be overlooked. It’s only steps away from the city’s most famous locations, which is incredible for couples and guests alike!
With such a prime location, I knew we should repeat the city skyline detail we incorporated into the couple’s invitation bellyband again. This time, I turned my attention toward the escort cards. Each was printed with a black outline of the skyline, which was the opposite of the invitation, making it a detail that was both new yet completely cohesive. Plus, I also designed the stickers that were placed on the bags of the cake and pretzels guests would enjoy later in the evening.
From the snow that graced A+B’s day even in March to the thoughtful details, bright flowers, and loving parent dances, it’s so clear the couple’s luxury wedding dream came true. Congratulations, Angela and Blake! I’m so happy I was able to be a part of designing your wedding day details, and I’m thrilled to be able to share photos from Trica Notte.
