Kara and Nick tied the knot October 10th at St. John the Evangelist
in Philadelphia. Kara has such as beautiful sense of style that it was particularly exciting to work with her.
She designed all of the printed materials right down to the place cards. Here is the save the date which was inspired by all of the colors in her wedding party:
Since all of the attendants has a different color dress we tied them together with the bright green splash above and Kara's favorite flower - Alstroemeria. Yellow was the only color absent from the palette so all of the flowers followed suit.
Allebach Photography captured all of the moments from the day (there are just too many good ones...you can see more on the slideshow to the right!) Rachel and Mike are an amazing team. While they are known for their edgy style, you don't need to be a 'Tattooed Bride' or a 'Rock 'n Roll Groom' to hire them. These photographers have the innate ability showcase YOUR personal sense of style on your big day with their artistic touch. The Bridal party took over the Loews Hotel, as they walked down to the church for the ceremony.
Claudia Seyler was the stylist who did all of the hair and make-up for the gals. She is always so soothing to be around - I wish she would do my hair and make-up everyday!
The reception was held down the street at the PAFA Hamilton Building
, another one of my favorite places. This venue was perfect for Kara and Nick - they are so creative and artistic, it matched their personalities to a "T"! I designed the seating card display as an interactive sculpture wall to showcase the individual hand made origami flowers that Kara (and her sister Christina!) labored over...with love of course!
Then the guests moved into the main dining room where they were seated at tables that each held a unique centerpiece. All the flowers were yellow, and designed with a modern twist which complimented both the bride and the art facility itself.
and here is just one of my 'favorite moment' photos...
