Today I’m celebrating Ann and Bernard! They fell in love with a new-to-me venue in Northeast Philadelphia, Knowlton Mansion. And, just a quick peek at this 19th century mansion shares all of the reasons why! Conroy Catering purchased the estate, which includes gardens to enjoy during the spring and summer, terraces, a new ballroom, a wine cellar, and so much more, and they have continued to bring innovation, while also honoring the space’s history. It’s not a surprise at all that Ann and Bernard welcomed their guests to both their wedding ceremony and reception at Knowlton – when a venue is beautiful, why leave?
When I learned about the history behind the space, the design for A+B’s wedding stationery became so clear – we needed flourishes. The entire suite has a slightly Victorian feel that also feels completely modern thanks to the pocket on the back for the inserts and the overall printing style of the suite. Although adding gold foil may be one of the most popular ways to incorporate this metallic, there’s also another way – gold thermography. This printing technique involves raised printing, and I think this technique was even more fitting than gold foil.
Knowlton Mansion is a true hidden treasure in Philadelphia, and I am so thrilled Ann and Bernard chose to invite their guests to experience it with them with this suite! Make sure to take a peek at all of the details we incorporated with Carly is Inspired while styling the invitation for Carly Fuller Photography to capture.
