This Philadelphia Cescaphe wedding was glamorous, modern & timeless! Devon stunned in an elegant, off the shoulder gown from Sarah Seven. Matt’s deep blue tux from Thomas Clifford paired perfectly with the pops of blue and purple in the florals. The first look and portraits took place on the streets of Old City, Philadelphia. The couple’s sweet pup made an appearance during portraits, and also accompanied Devon & Matt during their receiving line after the ceremony!
The reception took place at Franklin View by Cescaphe. The tented space was filled with modern & unique details. Linear elements such as a grid design on the clear ceiling, and a square, tiered cake added to the modern vibe. Dining tables were labeled with Philadelphia neighborhoods. Black chairs and deep grey curtains paired with a lustrous black dancefloor made the space feel modern & timeless. Chandeliers, floral arrangements and twinkle lights hung from the ceiling and provided a cozy & welcoming feel. After the first dance, Devon changed into a short, fringed dress by Nadine Merabi that was perfect for twirling on the dance floor!
“We truly feel we had the best vendors and are so lucky to have had them as part of our special day. People ask Matt and I how the day went and truthfully it went effortlessly and if anything went wrong, we had no clue! I would recommend planning alone time for you & your partner. I couldn’t wait to tell Matt about the morning of and getting ready, and I was equally as eager to hear about his morning with the groomsmen. It is great to see family and socialize, but don’t forget time for just the two of you. The moments I got alone with Matthew on our wedding day were my favorite.
I also HIGHLY recommend a first look! I know it can be controversial, but it was perfect for us. The nerves leading up to seeing your significant other are real, and I was thankful to have that moment with him where no one was around. We were able to share our own personal vows and take it all in. It totally made the rest of the day so easy. By the time we got to the church I was so relaxed and ready to marry my best friend! Stay true to yourself but realize at the end of the day, the little things you stress about won’t matter at all on your wedding day.”
