When Ashley, David, and I were looking for inspiration for their Philadelphia wedding invitations, Ashley was drawn to a previous suite I designed that incorporated the famed city skyline. In order to put a new twist on the design for A+D, we chose to include a few additional landmarks, including the LOVE sign and the Liberty Bell. Then we looked to the beautiful architecture of their wedding venue for inspiration, and we honed in on flourishes for the main invitation piece. Together, the completed suite offered a wonderful peek inside what guests would experience on A+D’s August wedding day at the Crystal Tea Room!
Ashley and David spent their mornings apart on their wedding day, and I loved the photos of Ashley with her bridesmaids while they got ready. This group could not have had more fun if they tried! As their ceremony time neared, everyone gathered at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church to wait to witness Ashley’s walk down the aisle toward David. I was so happy to design the couple’s wedding programs to celebrate the moment.
Once they were officially married, Ashley and David captured photos throughout Philadelphia with Jeffrey Vincent Photography, including a number with City Hall in the background. Their wedding day had a theme, and it definitely centered around embracing all of the city’s best locales! Post photos, they rejoined their guests at the Crystal Tea Room for a night of celebration at their ballroom wedding.
Inside the reception, guests were greeted by additional stationery pieces, including escort cards and custom signage, including pieces for the couple’s signature drinks, koozies, hashtag, and guest book. Then their step-and-repeat backdrop also debuted inside their photo booth. Tables included gold and blush details and crystal candelabras, which highlighted the Crystal Tea Room’s style beautifully.
As the reception got underway, Ashley and David shared their first dance together in the center of the dance floor. Their parents joined them later in the night, and speeches of course happened too! Then everyone dined and danced for the rest of the night.
Ashley and David, I’m so happy I was able to create wedding stationery that you used before and throughout your wedding day. I hope you loved it as much as I enjoyed creating everything for you! xo
