Botanical Philadelphia wedding: Celeste + Brian

July 24, 2012
outdoor botanical wedding

It’s no surprise Celeste has fantastic style (look at her wearing that dreamy Addie dress by Monique Lhuillier & accessorizing with a floor-length, all-white bouquet), she’s a fashion designer for Anthropologie! Surrounded by the extensive array of foliage at Bartram’s Garden just outside of Philly, Celeste + Brian walked out to a live jazz band, dined in a cobblestone courtyard, sent guests off with tasty favors, and danced the night away with white parasols in hand.

Celeste + Brian made these cute customized limoncello bottles that doubled as the guests’ escort cards, and tasty favors.

The music! Their first dance was to Otis Redding’s, “These Arms are Mine”. Father/daughter dance was to Israel Kamakawiwo’ ole, “Somewhere over the Rainbow”, and mother/son dance was to Dean Martin’s, “That’s Amore”. Then to bring everyone out to the dance floor, High Society Productions hit it off with a series of Mummer standards complete with white parasols!

Timeless! From the all-white palette, romantic box planter centerpieces, and their wedding party’s fashion playing a role in the overall look.

Congratulations Celeste + Brian!
