The Proposal

“John proposed on the Thomas Mill covered bridge that crosses the Wissahickon Creek. It’s a favorite spot of ours to walk, and the fact that it’s the last covered bridge in Philly makes it a really special place in the city. John likes to remind me that apparently when he proposed, I never said ‘yes,’ I just started crying.”

Wedding Planning

“It was pretty smooth. Our family didn’t make any crazy requests that drive a lot of couples nuts. We had all the big vendors picked out within a few months of the engagement. I think it helped that we knew what we wanted and just went for it. Keeping the guest list smaller helped to cut down on a lot of the small things that pile up at the end too.”

Tyler Arboretum

“We knew we wanted an outdoor ceremony and reception, but my Dad had one request — there had to be access to AC if it got too hot and humid. We looked at a few other outdoor venues but lucked out when we visited Tyler Arboretum. They were just finishing renovations on the barn which would offer an awesome new space (and AC). We booked without seeing the barn completed because we loved the grounds and all the flexibility we had in choosing different ceremony, cocktail, and photo spaces.”

Wedding Inspiration

“Having a garden venue, it felt only right to play off the natural beauty of the space. We’re not fussy people, so we focused on a rustic floral theme. The floral aspect was inspired by the Dutch masters’ floral still lifes that I was introduced to on a trip to the Netherlands as a kid. We extended the theme from the invites, to John’s bow tie, the floral painting on the cake which matched our invites, and of course the actual flowers — boutonniere wreaths for the groomsmen, floral wreaths for the flower girls, a pocketful for John’s ’boutonniere’, floral rings for our Moms instead of corsages, and just tons of local flower goodness.”

“Since we come from opposite coasts, it was really special having all the people who meant the most to us together in one space. It’s something we don’t think will happen again, so it was a fantastic experience seeing everyone enjoying a milestone moment in our lives in the same place.”

Wedding Planning Advice

“Don’t try to please anyone but yourselves. Everyone has an opinion, but only yours matter on this day. If it’s important to you both, make it happen.”

Wedding Vendors

“Our vendors were amazing, and we would recommend every one of them. We didn’t worry about a single thing day-of, and during planning when we didn’t know what to do or couldn’t decide on something, we pushed it over to them to take care of. We had a lot of confidence and trust in our vendors, their abilities, and felt they knew us well enough to make decisions that would probably be better than ideas we’d think of ourselves.”
