We started working with Beth and Mike a few years prior to their big day when we worked with Beth’s older sister Amy for her wedding. Back when Amy was getting married, Full Planning was our JAM and it was one of the only services we provided at DFW Event Design.
Beth and Mike met through a mutual friend from her college days at University of Scranton who had a friend tag along when she move to Philadelphia. That friend was Mike.
The day started at the Logan Hotel in Philadelphia. Florals were delivered to the hotel by Petals Lane, a dear floral friend in the event industry as Beth stepped into her Haley Paige gown. We then headed over to ceremony right across the street for their Ceremony at the beautiful basilica located in the heart of Philadelphia and right off of the Ben Franklin Parkway. From there, guests retreated to rest before the big bash located at Cescaphe’s Broad Street venue, Vie.
Reception started with an over the top cocktail hour and bar setup then we lined up their 22 person bridal party for entrances to the decked out ballroom. Our favorite part? Beth and Mike’s first dance to Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”. We ended the night with hand rolled Cuban cigars in the courtyard and a custom donut wall with Federal Donuts from yours truly.
We love love love the two families that came together to make Beth and Mike’s day as special as it was. We couldn’t have asked for a more challenging day but we enjoyed every minute of it. We even had this wedding written up in Philadelphia Wedding Magazine which you can peek at here.
