Becca and Stan, June 2018, Christ Church and Knowlton Mansion, Philadelphia, PA

In April of 2017, I received an email from Bride Becca who was looking for assistance with planning her wedding as her family did not live in state and she really wanted someone to work alongside her to put all the details together.   After meeting with Becca (who had just gotten engaged literally days before our meeting), I knew that she was the perfect Diamonds and Details client!  She and I also had a lot in common which also makes the planning process even more fun.  I was excited that Becca felt the same way and hired Diamonds and Details for our full planning services.

Becca and I started the planning process with a venue search – Becca wanted a little bit of a unique venue  – if possible, located in or close to Center City Philadelphia, have a romantic feel, is classic and traditional but had somewhat of a rustic look as well and also – air conditioning!  (Becca told me several times she did not want to sweat if all possible on wedding day!)  After visiting about 7 or so venues, Becca and her fiancé Stan fell in love with Knowlton Mansion.  The venue seemed to cross off all of their wants while also offering top-notch catering by their in-house caterer, Conroy Catering, so not only would the venue look the part, but the food would taste great and the service on wedding night would be perfect!  With the date picked and the venue booked, the next step was to piece together the couple’s perfect team of wedding day professionals.

For photography, Becca and Stan hired Jaime and Lincoln from Bartlett Pair Photography.  This husband/wife team totally got Becca’s vision of wanting a classic and elegant Philadelphia wedding but also found a way to really capture the fun side of the couple.  From shooting their engagement photos around the city to capturing all the sweet, intimate moments from the ceremony at Christ Church and finally capturing all the special details from the reception at Knowlton, Jaime and Lincoln really brought together the story of Becca and Stan’s relationship.  Also putting their touch on Becca and Stan’s wedding day story was their florist – Lauren from Belovely, their band Midnight Hour (they actually played Becca’s brother’s wedding), stationery designers LoveLeigh Invitations and Top Knots by Aimee and Shimmer and Spice for all the wedding day beauty.  (As we get closer to wedding day, Becca reached out to me and asked if I could help find her a lighting professional as she really wanted to add a little bit of a wow factor to the area of the venue that her cake would be placed.  Enter – Lumos Co. who specializes in this sort of extra for wedding day.  As Bartlett Pair’s photos show, Becca was right on point with this addition – the lighting from Lumos perfectly highlighted the wedding cake and made the cake cutting photos even more memorable!)

We can’t say enough how much fun it was to work with Becca and Stan to help plan their wedding day.  Diamonds and Details only takes on a limited number of full planning clients a year, so having such a memorable experience working with Becca only makes this job even more special.  An extra bonus of working with our clients is when we are able to see our work and our client’s vision come to life online and/or in print.  A fun surprise this week was seeing Becca and Stan’s wedding featured on Philly in Love!  Congrats to Becca and Stan on a beautiful wedding day!  Thank you for choosing Diamonds and Details to be a part of your wedding story!
