Happy First Day of Spring!! They say when “March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb” and I can’t wait for some warmer weather and colorful spring blooms! Make sure you check out Philadelphia Wedding Magazine’s Spring & Summer issue on the newsstands now to get your dose of wedding planning inspiration! I am so excited to have Kate & Brian’s gorgeous wedding featured in this issue!

Kate & Brian chose the abundant beauty of the John James Audubon Center for their wedding day. The ceremony was held in the gorgeously restored barn and for the reception, we moved into the adjacent open-air pavilion. These two are simply the sweetest and the day was laid back and fun – full of laughter, tears of joy and lots of dancing!

Kate looked amazing in her gray Anna Cambell gown with a crystal studded top from Lovely Bride. Her bridesmaids wore mix-matched blush and lavender gowns and her maid of honor popped in her sparkly Adrianna Papell gown. Kate wore her hair in a braided boho up-do which was both stylish and practical on a hot June day!

Kate’s vision of a colorful, vibrant day couldn’t have come together more perfectly! Confetti & Co. embraced the colorful palette and decorated every inch of this wedding with geodes, copper geometric shapes, and ombre colored ribbons. The ombre theme continued in their hand-written calligraphy welcome signs and seating chart by Mary Kate Moon. Falls Flowers created unique bouquets and centerpieces by mixing colorful bold blooms with wildflowers, pale lambs ear, and curling alliums. Kate & Brain’s day was a colorful boho dream!

About a month ago I teamed up with True Beauty Marks, Belovely, Groovy Delicious, Lovely Bride and The Hope Chest to put on a boudoir fundraising event. I photographed 10 lovely ladies over two days and together we raised $1,500 for Planned Parenthood! In the current political climate, it feels more important than ever to support this vital social institution that has been helping to protect women’s health and rights for the last 100 years!

I’m so excited to share Part 1 of our boudoir fundraising event on the blog today! The lovely Gina, owner of True Beauty Marks and one of my favorite models, posed for a maternity session at my studio amongst beautiful floral decor by Belovely. I loved Gina’s free-spirited style – she even donned a top hat in some of the shots to channel her “inner Stevie Nicks”!

I was so inspired to see the studio transformed by the plush white bed and simple yet impactful floral decor – a perfect contrast to the rustic industrial brick in my studio. I can’t wait to host more maternity and family sessions at my studio!

Nicole and Kevin and their friends were so wonderful and fun to work with, and everything came together so beautifully for their Cira Centre wedding! One of my absolute favorites of 2016!

To start off the day, Nicole & Kevin got ready at the swanky Hotel Monaco. Nicole looked amazing in her modern and stylish Suzanne Neville wedding dress, complimented by her clean classic updo by Kelly Hursh of Hush Salon and dewy makeup by Victoria Riggo of Make Me UP Pretty. For their first look, we simply crossed the street and utilized the classic Independence Hall Park in Old City, Philadelphia. They had an exquisitely beautiful and bright August day – the perfect backdrop for the portraits around the city! Then we headed to the Rodin Museum to grab some photos of their entire bridal party. The classic architecture and manicured gardens added a refined touch of style to the photos.

Their ceremony took place at the Penn Museum, where Oleander florals made an incredible wild floral arch as a backdrop. For their reception Oleander created an eye-popping elevated floral runner above the head table. I loved the bright and bold color scheme the chose for their day! By infusing their reception with deep blue, copper and fuchsia they stepped slightly outside the ordinary, and it worked so well! With Confetti and Co. coordinating and planning the day, every aspect of this wedding was dripping with style and not a detail was overlooked! From their over-the-top florals to the handwritten calligraphy by table numbers and escort cards Hello-Bird, it was truly a gorgeous day!
