The sky was a soft cotton-candy blue as I made my way into Philadelphia for Dana and Andrew’s elegant wedding at the Ritz-Carlton.
I found out it actually takes two elevators to get to the lavish Penthouse Suite, where Dana and her girls were getting ready; one main elevator takes you to the 30th floor, and then there is a small secret elevator (which needs a secret key) that will take you to the large floor with the spectacular view of this City of Love.
I adored all of Dana’s bridal details, including her show-stopping Jimmy Choo heels, her adorable pink and blue floral robe, and her cathedral veil. Her maids wore long silk chiffon dresses in the color “graphite.” One of my favorite colors is gray, and it was lovely to see bridesmaids in this unique wedding color combined with pink roses and white peonies.
The black tie wedding ceremony took place within one of the beautiful rooms of the Ritz-Carlton, with a reception following in the Grand Ballroom. Andrew looked in awe as he saw his beautiful brunette bride walk down the aisle; he knew he was the luckiest guy in the world.
Pink and peach uplighting and tall candelabras created a romantic scene in the grand ballroom. a creamy iridescent cake was just waiting to be eaten, and large vases of extravagant florals brought so much beauty to each table. Every little detail was divine.
Sentiments were spoken, feet were dancing, and Dana and Andrew were sent off with a ribbon wand exit, surrounded by their dearest family and friends.
Congratulations Dana and Andrew! You are truly a match made in Philadelphia.
