Lauren + Adam 05.10.08 (Part 1)

I need to do another 2 part wedding. Lauren and Adam had so many fantastic and unique details of their Philadelphia wedding that I would really like to do a slide show. My May is so busy with tons of unbelievable events that it seems like I’m running in place and will think about a slide show for my blog sometime in July. I will share some teasers for now. I knew I was in for a treat when I say Laurens Ulla-Maija Couture gown hanging in the doorway. I’ve always loved this designer because the fabric has such an amazing sheen. Ulla-Maija gowns seem to glow in photographs. You can see how Lauren glowed as she descended the stairs of her parents’ home to her fathers waiting arms. Lauren wore her mothers mantilla, which goes to show taste is timeless! I cannot rave enough about the astounding job that Nancy Saam did with the flowers for this wedding. If you love the vines that graced the aisle of Saint Patrick’s Church wait until you see Part 2 in the Union League!!! After the ceremony Laurens mom surprised her with a bagpiper (Perfect for a Duffy bride). The bagpiper led the way for the bridal party to walk to Rittenhouse Square for pictures. The couple then dropped by their center city town home for a picture in front of their home. Very romantic! Right around the corner was one of Philadelphia’s famous murals. They always make a great backdrop for artistic pictures. Lucky me!!! I have many more surprises in round 2!
