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!

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 ...
