A Vibrant Rooftop Philadelphia Wedding At The Free Library

Olivia & Parker’s Philadelphia wedding was truly one for the books! With vibrant florals, chic fashion and perfect sunny skies, we are so excited to share this beautiful gallery. The day began in the heart of Center City, where excitement filled the air as Olivia and her girls got ready for the day. The chic details were accentuated by the stunning yellow, pink, and orange flowers that adorned the room, setting the tone for the colorful sunny day ahead.

Old City, Philly, served as the backdrop for the couple’s first look and portraits with their bridal party. Against the historic charm of the city, the bridesmaids donned various shades of pink, creating a visually stunning contrast to the timeless black tuxes worn by the groomsmen. The ceremony took place in a local church, and afterward, the couple exited to a shaded garden full of their loved ones.

After, we traveled to the reception venue, the Free Library of Philadelphia. Inside the library, history and romance intertwined as the couple posed for portraits on the historic stairs and in the stacks of books. However, it was the rooftop that stole the show, providing an enchanting view of the city skyline that served as the backdrop for their reception. The reception space came alive with vibrant florals and candles adorning each table. Twinkle lights created a magical atmosphere on the dance floor, inviting guests to celebrate under the stars. The rooftop, with its breathtaking view, proved to be the most epic location for a party, creating an unforgettable experience for all in attendance.

As the sun dipped below the horizon, Olivia and Parker met us on the rooftop for breathtaking sunset portraits, bathed in the golden light that filled the rooftop space. The combination of the city skyline, the golden light, and this radiant couple made for some of our favorite portraits! After the sun set and city lights came on, the party began on the rooftop. Olivia & Parker laughed, danced, and celebrated with family & friends beneath the glow of the city. It was such an epic day that we wish could last forever! Scroll to see all of the magic.
