Mille Fleurs Floral Design: An Elegant Wedding at Cescaphe Atrium in Philadelphia

Wedding

Occasionally I get the opportunity to photograph a wedding for another vendor. This is particularly great because I have the ability to focus on one aspect of the day and really get the most out of it. Earlier this month I came in for Ilonka and Margaux of Mille Fleurs Floral Design for the wedding of Elizabeth and Andrew.

This incredible wedding was held at the Cescaphe Atrium at the Curtis Center in Philadelphia. If you’ve stepped foot in this place you know that it’s an exquisite venue. Overhead is a glass ceiling 12 stories up. Underfoot is an elegant black and white marble floor. There’s a two story waterfall fountain and billowing, white fabric surrounds you. It’s certainly a sight to behold.


The Mille Fluers team did it justice and then some. Their creations fit the location perfectly and put the event over the edge to spectacular. The colors were soft whites and pale pinks with woodland greens. See for yourself:




These lovely additions capped the rows of chairs for the ceremony.


The rustic wooden trellis was beautiful, boasting blooms of roses, lisiantus, ivy, hydrangea, baby’s breath, curly willow and so much more.





The bouquets and ceremony were just appetizers for what Mille Fluers had in store for the reception. The mother of the bride literally gasped when she walked in and saw the transformation. It was unreal. Balls of dainty flowers and candles hung from metal trees on every table. Pastel green silk table linens for the perfect accent. Each centerpiece was soft and delicate but combined to make a breathtaking view.





The stage and trellis were re-commissioned for the lovely petal-adorned cake.


It was gorgeous. Margaux and Ilonka wowed everyone. Stunning!

When words escape, flowers speak.

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | FDR Park | Christina + Eli
Not ones to be tied down by (any) tradition or superstition, Christina and Eli had the wedding so many only dare to dream about – 100% their way.  It was a refreshing and beautiful take on such an important and personal day with sweet, sentimental flourishes and nods to different cultures and religions as these two joined together.  I feel lucky to know them as friends and to have been invited in as one of the lucky ones, along with Gary or Gary Nevitt Photography (his take on the wedding on his blog), to play such a special role in their day. We, all of us, started at the Hotel Monaco that morning.  If you’re marrying the love of your lif ...
