Philadelphia Wedding Spotlight | Lovely Bride

Wedding

Walk inside of the doors of this Old City gem and you’ll have your eyes full of some of the most beautiful frocks this side of the catwalk. This new bridal boutique is absolutely hopping after opening its doors in 2013 with the charismatic and stylish Ivy Kaplin at the helm.  Lovely couldn’t be a more fitting name.

I stopped by the shop to indulge in the soft frillies – lace, tulle, illusion backs, non-whites, short, feathered, beaded, organza, silk… I could go on and on but that’s not my job. It’s Ivy’s.

I asked Ivy if she still gets excited about the dresses and tries them on when the shop is closed. I know I absolutely would. She confessed that she does and that she has nicknames for a good few of the dresses. That’s my kinda girl!

Make an appointment at Lovely Bride and take advantage of the biggest dressing rooms I’ve ever seen at a wedding dress shop (and I went to 6 of them myself).

Then indulge in the luxe gowns yourself. Oh, and check out the selection of veils, belts, jewelry, and other accessories. There was this ridiculously gorgeous delicate garter that was to die for!

Give Ivy a hello from me and be sure to tell me which one you pick!

Perkasie Wedding Photographer | Jen + Casey
I dare you to find me a bride with more expressions than Jen. Jen and Casey’s wedding was phenomenal. It was held at her parent’s house in Perkasie, PA where her other two sisters had been married as well. The place looked incredible and the day was gorgeous. More than anything, though, was the happiness that surrounded everyone that day. I’m pretty sure that a map of the area would have shown a warm bubble of love and bliss centered directly over this "backyard wedding". I can’t even count the number of times I heard Jen say, “I’m so happy!”. Now that’s a good wedding!  (By the way, you've seen them before from their 30th Street ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Down Town Club | Janene + Greg
Janene and Greg won my heart long, long ago. Individually they’re quirky, kind, genuine, and simply wonderful. Together they’re even more than the sum of the parts. I’m still trying to understand it. They fit together so well. They shine together. During the speeches we heard how easily Janene draws people to her and that it’s pretty much impossible to be mad at her. I won’t even deny that I have massive couple crush on them. Their engagement pictures at Eastern State Penitentiary were just a taste of what was to come from their wedding.Janene got ready at her parents’ house in Jamison, PA. She wore the earrings that Greg gave her as ...
