Angela and Matt - Down Town Club

We celebrated our last wedding of 2009 with Angela and Matt.

We started the day at Penns View Inn.


Angela has this amazing hair piece. I loved it so much!


She also had a blusher, and I especially loved this image. Angela had a beautiful gown that was absolutely stunning on her, with a vintage hair style and hair jewelry.



While Angela finished getting ready, I popped over Matt's room to help with their boutonnieres. Matt received this gift from Angela.

The ceremony took place at the Arch St. Meetinghouse in Philadelphia, which is a Quaker place of worship. At the front of the meetinghouse, stood the chuppah, and the ketubah was signed, and glass was broken during the ceremony. But the most meaningful of all, was having their good friend from law school officiate their wedding.


They had a custom made aisle runner. It was beautiful. I usually don't like aisle runners in fear that the bride may get her heels caught and fall. But this aisle was just too pretty not to use! I made sure we had it affixed securely to the floor.

The bridemaids held unique nosegays, created by Leslie of Whimsical Welcomes. All the girls wore different dresses. We love different dresses!


I went straight to the Down Town Club with intern Bree, while Tasha stayed behind at the ceremony to make sure everything went well, and items were packed up.
After the ceremony, the new Mr. and Mrs. Epstein walked around the city with their wedding party. The threat of rain didn't scare them off.


I loved Angela's coat she wore over her dress. It was so glamourous, yet looked so warm! I think one of the advantages of getting married in late fall and winter is being able to wear beautiful shawls, coverlets, and fur coats.


Jeremy Evans Thomas, their photographer, found some unique places for them to rest their feet (or rain boots).






Yes, it rained on their wedding day. BUT, it did not rain during portraits. It rained during the ceremony and rained just as they were walking into the reception. But the rain is pretty and they were good sports about it.

They had 3 different types of centerpieces, some included candles.

They had red uplighting, and a monogram gobo. Lighting and music provided by 4MostSound.

The cocktail tables had these adorable pieces, made of legos. It was so creative!

The lovely couple were all smiles that night, as they should have been! They're married! They were engaged since their last year of law school - finally two years later, they were finally married.

The guest book was an adesso album with polaroids. Bree and I took polaroids as the guests filed into the Down Town Club for the reception. Guests then signed a personal message by their picture.

In the middle of the guest book table, Whimiscal Welcomes made a tree centerpiece. If you looked closely at the tree, their initials were carved into it.
This is the tree that eventually ended up in the front seat of my car that night.




Towards the end of the night, Angela presented Matt with his grooms cake. I guess he really loves the Phillies! (The cake was a masterpiece by Night Kitchen Bakery).


It was great to end the season with such a great fun wedding! Congratulations to the Mr. and Mrs. Epstein!
