Philly wedding at Ballroom at the Ben philly_wedding_9


Today I’m sharing Amanda and Derek’s stunning Philadelphia LOVE wedding that took place downtown this past June. From their LOVE statue themed wedding invitations to their horse drawn carriage through the city, this wedding is chockfull of Philadelphia iconography. Amanda and Derek got married at St. Paul’s Parish in the Italian market and took a horse drawn carriage through the city to the Ballroom at the Ben for their wedding reception.

I worked with Amanda on her LOVE statue themed wedding invitations, which were our shop Love Park invitations with a map and folder enclosure add-on. I also worked with her on escort cards, thank you cards for her wedding party, and dancing shoes and guestbook signs (more on that in tomorrow’s post). It is so much fun working on the various pieces of the wedding because the bride and I build a relationship through the wedding planning process. Below I have asked Amanda a couple of questions to help inspire future Philly wedding couples.

Allison: What was your favorite detail at your wedding?
Amanda: Definitely my dress, cake, our matching Christian Louboutin shoes and the character of the Ballroom at the Ben.

Allison: Favorite moment at your wedding?

Amanda: Ah there are many!  First seeing each other in the church, leaving in the horse and carriage ride. People in the city were congratulating us, beeping/waving and telling me how beautiful I looked – I felt like a princess.
