We’re thrilled to finally be sharing this gorgeous Bellevue Hotel Wedding in Philadelphia for our couple Anna + Ian. What made their day extra special was their adorable little girl Sloane, who added so much joy and spontaneity to their big day. We loved her tiny custom flower girl dress that matched her mom’s blush and lace gown by Martin Thornburg. Anna’s girls complimented them perfectly in alternating metallic Morilee bridesmaid dresses. Anna and her bridesmaids got ready at her mom’s house in Fairmount, while the guys got ready at the Bellevue Hotel. As often happens on wedding days, things took an unexpected turn when we learned last minute that there was a festival happening on the Ben Franklin Parkway. So with a bit of creativity and quick thinking, we were able to coordinate a First Look on the beautiful staircase of the Bellevue Ballroom and then head over to City Hall for some bridal party and Bride and Groom photographs. Anna and Ian took it all in stride and were just happy to be with each other and all of their amazing family and friends – and of course their precious little one. Sloane totally stole the show during the portrait session and was hamming it up for the camera!
After the portrait session, Anna and Ian exchanged vows on the 19th floor of the Bellevue Hotel in their Rose Garden before celebrating with all of their family and friends in the newly revoted Bellevue Hotel Grand ballroom, which was perfectly decorated by Longstems floral designers. We also had the pleasure of working alongside some other incredible vendors that included Hair by Zaneta Rose & Co, Makeup by Noel Pirolli, DJ No Macarena and the incredible staff led by Lisa McGraw over at the Bellevue Hotel. We were truly honored to be a part of their big day and witness these two lovebirds and parents coming together as husband and wife!!
