Harlee loves cats and music, and Ryan loves sports and superheroes. They met while in college, spent two years strictly as friends, and they dated for seven years before the things they loved officially combined on their April 14, 2018 wedding day. I can’t wait to take you inside their celebration!
To share all of the details about their wedding day, Harlee and Ryan asked me to design a custom wedding invitation suite. Blush pink and rose gold acted as our palette, and I was in love with their laser cut design! The main piece had “gates” on either side that opened to reveal the main invitation piece, as well as all of the inserts, and I loved how a few of the details peeked through when either side was closed. Learning about H+R’s wedding date and venue – Cescaphe Ballroom – was a complete experience!
On their wedding day, Harlee and Ryan got ready with their respective wedding parties at Hotel Monaco. The ladies were tucked away in the bridal suite, which offered beautiful lighting for their getting ready portrait session and a later first look moment between the bride in her wedding dress and her dad. Once Harlee and Ryan were both ready, they met again outside for their first look together.
Guests were offered ceremony programs, which I designed, as they took their seats as Cescaphe Ballroon. And, I’m certain everyone was in awe of not only the couple but also their incredible floral arrangements from Beautiful Blooms! Either side of the aisle featured cascading arrangements of orchids, and rose petals lined either side. Plus, the chuppah feature roses, draping, and a glamorous chandelier. The team did a beautiful job creating fabulous designs!
Post-ceremony, Harlee and Ryan joined their guests for their cocktail hour and reception. The same attention to detail that Beautiful Blooms paid to the reception space also carried over into the reception space, and every table included a centerpiece filled with a varying mixture of blush roses, hydrangea, orchids, and more. H+R also asked me to design additional stationery details, like their glitter escort cards, table numbers, menus, and custom signage, and I loved creating these pieces for them. I’m also in complete awe of their wedding cake! It looked stunning!
Harlee and Ryan each danced with their parents, and EBE’s Dreamtime kept guests on the dance floor throughout the night. They even had a late night treat from Philly’s Finest Samboni Boys! It seems as though they had a wonderful wedding day, thanks to the photos captured by Baiada Photography and video filmed by Allure Films.
Thank you so much for asking me to design your stationery, including your thank you cards, H+R. I loved every moment. xo
