Enchanting Wedding at Front and Palmer by Asya Photography
This enchanting Philadelphia wedding permeated with luminosity, and organic elements. The air plant chuppah designed by Papertini was just an impression of all the amazing floral arrangements created for this unique wedding. In conjunction to the beautiful floral designs, the whimsical string lights that hung from the industrial ceilings of Front and Palmer gave an illuminating effect that certainly made this wedding magical. But nothing could compare to Robyn and Dan’s wedding glow that radiated in every photo of the two together. Asya Photography photographed every lovely detail, and more swoon-worthy beauty awaits below!
About the Venue | Front and Palmer:
“The venue is a great mix of industrial and urban. It really felt like the type of place you could do anything with. Dan’s favorite was the wood floors in the cocktail area. Mine was the warm romantic lighting that begged for the twinkling lighting we had.”
“We wanted it to feel magical under twinkling lights, and to walk down the aisle as if in candlelight. When discussing our style, we said somewhere between Anthropologie and West Elm but airing on their more upscale side and less shabby chic. We used soft colors: Tan, Champagne, Ivory, Blush Peach, Blush Pink, Gray, Sage Green, Gold. I had looked through pictures online and loved how soft and romantic these colors looked together. I really wanted succulents in the flower arrangements to give them some texture. I had my grandmother’s wedding dress cut into an 8’x8′ square to be used as our Chuppah. She had a very long lace train and our chuppah was suspended from the ceiling with airplants in glass orbs hanging from it. It looked amazing and it was so personal to have that touch. It felt intimate overall even though we had a big wedding (200 people). My parent’s crowd from DC are used to very formal weddings with huge white floral arrangements.
“A favorite moment was our hora. We wanted it to be really wild and after the took us down from the chairs a friend threw Dan up on his shoulders. My brother came up to me and said I’ll throw you up too but I was in a long dress so had to go on one shoulder. He got me up there and it set the tone for the wild dance party we had the rest of the night. Everyone loved our band and all the women changed into the flip flops we provided so they wouldn’t have to stop dancing. During our ceremony both our siblings were trying to get their kids through it. My brother was playing an Elmo video on his phone for his son and I kept hearing this little voice say Elmo! Elmo! Our niece Anna let our a huge giggle at a very appropriate time and everyone laughed.”
“Separately, I loved our impromptu visit to La Colombe in Fishtown. While we were out taking pictures I felt like I was crashing and really needed a coffee. It happens to also be gorgeous and the photos we took there are amazing. It also really felt like us…we go there, we’re big coffee drinkers. The museum gardens are beautiful and the pictures look great, but we really felt at home when we were at La Colombe and I am so happy when we look at the pictures there.”
