Vicki and Larry get Married!

A few weekends ago, cHill weddings had the HONOR of working Vicki and Larry's wedding in Philadelphia. Vicki and Larry hired us for full service planning, and we first met at a little cafe in Mt Airy last year. One of the things I remember from our first meeting was that she felt like we were very similar and knew that I would identify with her since my marriage to my husband is a cross-cultural one. We also shared a love for good food and drink, anything city and stylish, and retro fashion. Vicki's never seen Mad Men, but I think her wedding resembled that a bit.

Please enjoy some teaser pics from our beautiful friends at Doll Face Studio. More images can be found on their blog!



Vicki was all happy tears today. She's beautiful even when she cries!



The ceremony took place at Old St. Joe's - the oldest Catholic Church in Philadelphia. The cermeony also incorportated Filipino traditions, such as the Cord and Veil, and incorporating Sponsors.


The girls all wore charcoal dress of different styles, and they all looked amazing. What a great group of ladies! Not sure when this adorable bulldog came from, but it's perfect, since Vicki and Larry are dog lovers.


Her shoes were so Hot! Blue Tux shoes dyed a beautiful blue color. They looked especially great with her second dress, which was shorter, and totally showed off her hot heels.

The reception took place on the rooftop terrace of the Philadelphia Free Library. It was very "Sex in the City" but with a very happy ending. During cocktail hour, Vicki and Larry took pictures in the stacks and in various parts of the library. I love the composition of this one.

Margaux of Fleur De Lis did all the flowers for this wedding, and they were spectacular. Very unique and creative, and was amazing about working with their budget. The wedding looked like a million bucks because of Margaux's expertise!

This picture was taken at the reception after Vicki's dress change. Vicki climbed onto the ledge (ah!) with Larry supporting her... it was so scary, and I was so nervous, but they were both so brave, and Doll Face is also pushing the limits to get a great shot, and it was worth it!

Now, some non-pro detail pics from my iphone:

Awesome seating chart created by June Park, or June Park Designs. She also did their invitation suite.

Cake by Tartes in Old City. I didn't get a chance to try a slice, but I heard it was delicious.


Submerged callas and orchids for the family photo table by Fleur de Lis.


Gift table arrangement, also created by Fleur de Lis. The same tall arrangement was used on all the middle square tables under the tent for dinner.
More pictures to come in a few months!
