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!

Bucks County Wedding Photographer | Aldie Mansion | Kat + Dan
Kat and Dan married on a crisp, sunny day in December at one of my favorite venues in the area, Aldie Mansion.  The space was perfect for Kat who looked like she stepped out of a glamorous 1920s novel.  Her soft blonde hair fell along her face with an antique hair clasp.  Her gown (the 49th one she tried on!) was an incredible lace and beaded number that had been discontinued but she sourced and brought in.  The fluttering sleeves and delicate lace along the bottom were additions and I can’t imagine the dress without them. Leave it to Kat to accessorize with deep red, velvet pumps. She ...

Main Line Wedding Photographer | POMME | Lindi + Michael
A very wet spring day wasn’t going to stand in the way of an amazing wedding day for Lindi and Michael. To be honest, there wasn’t much that was going to get in their way. The venue was Peachtree & Ward’s lovely POMME, a refined and unique space in Radnor, PA. It is nestled back amongst trees with a pond and stream running in front of the property (swans included!). They had just finished construction on the space a few days prior and the transformation was nothing short of miraculous. I still don’t know how many elves they brought in to make the place flawless!As for the beautiful bride, very little transformation was needed. ...
