October 11- the day that Janice and Jeremy married at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. The weather was spectacular and the wedding was perfect! The day started with all the girls getting hair and make up at the Loews Hotel in center city Philadelphia. Darah from Dollface Studio did the stunning make up and her mom curled all that beautiful hair to make each girl look like a starlet.
I love this shot of Janice giving the ok on her mother's make up!
The Dress!! Janice's dress was a lovely ans feminine cloud of lace by Junko Yoshioka. When we went dress shopping this was the first dress she put on. After about 6 more dresses, she put this one back on and the tears came! We had a bride!!! I love this dress and it fit Janice's personality and vision perfectly.
Isn't she beautiful?!!!!!
Because the wedding was in an art gallery, Janice carried the theme of art throughout her wedding. From the framed invitations and table numbers done by Bird and Banner to the favors, the "artful" decor was everywhere. Janice also had a striking color palette! Raspberry, teal and gold were the predominant colors and a sage green just added the softness of Janice's personality. It was truly exquisite! Donna and the crew at Beautiful Blooms did a phenomenal job with the flowers. The ceremony, a combination of Janice's Filipino heritage and Jeremy's Jewish heritage, was beautiful. They stood under the chuppah with the rabbi and the priest and both traditions were incorporated into their ceremony.
Gold chairs, teal linens and glass cylinders full of ranunculus, roses, dahlias and seeded eucalyptus and trimmed in shades of teal and raspberry ribbon made for a stunning reception.
The favors, cookies made by the bride's cousin, were little portraits of the couple placed on mini easels. The vases on the table were a series of interestingly shaped pieces of differing shades of teal and blue, each with its own flower and character.
The guests names were all on these framed cards on a board by table number. And, instead of a guest book, Janice made this lovely framed mat with teal and raspberry ribbon and little cards for the guests to write notes to the couple.
Janice and Jeremy really enjoyed their day! I was happy to have helped them make it so perfect and thrilled to have been there to witness the blending of their cultures and the love in the room! Both families were a pleasure to get to know and I will miss all of them!
