Colorful wedding bouquet

Does anyone else feel like this bridal bouquet is the bestest flowers all wrapped into one? So pretty! This wedding Emily Wren Photography sent our way is full of bold florals and vibrant colors. Nicole + Kevin wanted their day to represent not only who they are as a couple, but as individuals, too. With Philadelphia being the city they first met, they knew they’d found the perfect locale to celebrate with all 160 guests. See what we mean by scrolling through the photos below!

Photog Emily Wren explains, Their ceremony took place at the Penn Museum, where Oleander made an incredible wild floral arch as a backdrop. For their reception, Oleander created an eye-popping elevated floral runner above the head table. I loved the bright and bold color scheme the chose for their day! By infusing their reception with deep blue, copper, and fuchsia they stepped slightly outside the ordinary, and it worked so well! With Confetti & Co coordinating and planning the day, every aspect of this wedding was dripping with style and not a detail was overlooked! From their over-the-top florals to the handwritten calligraphy and table numbers and escort cards Hello-Bird, it was truly a gorgeous day!

Nicole tells it, We met Emily Wren and her team at a bridal showcase at the Cira Centre. We just knew it was meant to be! Emily truly captures a treasure chest of memories and emotions. Her professionalism, calm spirit, and expertise are unmatched… As for the reception, the Cira Centre was love at first sight. Being self-proclaimed foodies, we knew it was meant to be when we found out Iron Chef Jose Garces catered it. Oh, and, did I mention the amazing views of the city skyline?!

Last but not least, tips from our bride: Don’t try to make everyone happy. Make the decision based on what you both love, what feels right to you, and then stick to it. Enjoy every moment—the whole thing flies!

Thanks for sharing your day, Kevin + Nicole!
