Lulu and Scott, April 2019, The Cira Cenre Atrium at JG Domestic, Philadelphia, PA

6 months before her wedding, Bride Lulu reached out to Diamonds and Details to help with managing her wedding day.  After a few emails back and forth and a phone call, Lulu and I hit it off and she decided to move forward with securing her wedding date of April 20th, 2019.   Lulu and her fiancé Scott – self described “foodies” (Groom Scott is actually a very talented chef in Philadelphia!) wanted to work with a Caterer that would allow them to design their menu and food service around their likes and style.  Thankfully, they found a perfect fit with Garces Events and fell in love with their venue the Cira Centre at JG Domestic.  (We have worked at the venue several times and it’s always a favorite for our team!)

One of the most common questions we get from interested Brides and Grooms is what is the difference between your “More Than a Day of Details – Customized Planning” and “”Day of Details – Wedding Coordination” services?  The main difference we say is that “wedding coordination” does not involve any help with securing your venue and/or wedding day professionals.  Every now and then though, one of our “Day of Details” clients does reach out and ask for “Help!” as they find themselves without a vendor and wedding day is quickly approaching.  Unfortunately, Lulu found herself months before the wedding in need of a florist, transportation, video and hair and make-up.  Thankfully, she was able to find an amazing florist on her own (Devon and Pinkett rocked the “Great Gatsby” theme and style Lulu wanted to capture!) but we were happy to help with connecting her with a video, transportation and hair and make-up professional who all ended up being a perfect match!

With a 1st look at Waterworks and the quintessential Broad Street photo,  Lulu and Scott had a picture perfect, very Philadelphia wedding day!  Photographer Martin Reardon captured every little detail of the couple’s day and really showed how the wedding was a fun party that was all about celebrating with their closest friends and family.  (Speaking of family, we love how Lulu and Scott really made them part of the wedding – Scott’s Father Joe Calhoun (For our Lancaster friends – Yes!  It’s that Joe – NBC’s top weather guy!) was one of the Groomsmen and Lulu’s Grandma was the “Flower Girl”.)   Helping to  keep the party going was EBE Entertainment who provided cocktail musicians and DJ services for wedding day.

We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to be along for the fun ride with Lulu and Scott on wedding day!  We loved working with them and seeing all of Lulu’s details come together perfectly.  The couple has another wedding planned in China this summer and we can’t wait to see how they top the fun from this one (hello donuts and churros for dessert!)!  Congrats to Lulu and Scott – Diamonds and Details wishes you many delicious meals in the future!
