Dream Wedding Venues by Kelly Pullman Photography

Ever since I announced that I was offering wedding photography, I’ve always wondered about the amazing venues I would get to visit/photograph! I put together fourteen venues that stuck out to me while scrolling through the Instagram world. These venues vary from elegant rooftop city spaces to vineyards and classical Greek and Roman architecture! Some of these venues are fairly close to the Bucks County/Philadelphia area and some are further south and west! The venues below are very high on my bucket list and my goal is to check off at least half of them in the next couple years!

he four-tier Formal Gardens were influenced by French and Italian gardens and feature varieties of flora, beautiful lush lawns, dramatic stone walls and staircases, gravel walks, fountains, and bronze sculptures. Tyler Gardens is located behind the Tyler Mansion at Bucks County Community College! BCCC is where I took my first photography course and earned my associate degree in photography!

Rachel + Steve Wedding Portraits by ProPhoto

Rachel + Steve’s engagement started off with a romantic beach proposal in Dewey with their families hiding in the background. Fast forward to their Engagement Session at Longwood Gardens where we had the pleasure of photographing these two love birds. Now that the wedding day has arrive we couldn’t have had a better day! From getting ready with the guys and gals at the Residence Inn Langhorne, to their First Look in Tyler Gardens….it was simply magical! Rachel and Steve said they love how kind, compassionate, and loyal the other is. They share so many core values that has kept their relationship going strong. They also love going on spontaneous adventures and traveling together!

Capturing their wedding party and couples portraits at Tyler Gardens gave us a sense that we weren’t even in Pennsylvania…just in our own little world….moving about the garden and all of the gorgeous scenery it has to offer. Rachel and Steve were very excited to tour Falls Manor after they found it only and when they walked in, they immediately looked at each other and knew it where they wanted to get married. The Falls Manor venue is absolutely beautiful-we love that there is a different space for each part of the night.

Congrats to this amazing couple!! From all of us at ProPhoto by MK we wish you many years of happiness!!

Christina and Christian’s Engagement by Christopher Alexandra

We were all set to head out to Christian and Christina’s engagement session when rain clouds rolled in. Determined to work with these two awesome people that day, we decided to take whatever mother nature got for us and brave the cold autumn day. Thankfully Christian and Christina were just as set to get these photos done. We were so glad we did it! These images came our gorgeous as they show the true sparkle of love that these two share. Christian and Christina look so good together, it was so much fun working with them at such awesome location as Tyler Gardens at Bucks County Community College. We now cannot wait for this couple’s wedding day next year!


Luxe Garden Wedding Inspiration in Pennsylvania by The Aisle Guide

With a dream-like enchantment, Tyler Gardens is a breathtaking location with a rich history reminiscent of a golden age of luxury—the perfect location for Dee Kay Events and Idalia Photography to capture the glamour and elegance of bygone eras, while maintaining a modern and sophisticated look. The peaceful tranquility, charm, and aesthetic of these gardens make you feel like you’re walking through a fairytale. The four-tier formal gardens boast dramatic stone walls and staircases, beautiful lush lawns, and a floral-filled scenery influenced by French and Italian gardens.

The team highlighted the gardens by incorporating pastels and ivories and used the open-air blue sky as part of the overall color palette. Adding modern touches like the asymmetric centerpiece and fun dress change added a touch of chic elegance to the dramatic backdrop, creating a truly unique shoot


Yasmine & Sean // Lush Garden Wedding at Tyler Gardens by Flutter Social

Yasmine came to me with a vision to turn the gardens & tent into a lush garden scene overflowing with greens & candles. She decided on stringing lights over the dance floor for a more dramatic effect & you could hear the guests gasp as they walked into the reception. Also Storytellers & Co. really capture the essence throughout the day & was a pleasure to work with. It was a pure joy working with Yasmine & Sean to bring all the details together.


Romantic Art Deco Wedding Inspiration at Tyler Gardens • Du Soleil Photographie

THIS is how you kick off the weekend in style! The moment this gallery landed in our inbox, we were in l.o.v.e., and friends, we know you’ll feel the same way! Du Soliel Photographie and Polka Dot Events teamed up to bring their romantic Art Deco vision to life, and they knocked it out of the park. The color palette of pinks, golds, and dark blues, the vintage furniture, the gorgeous arrangement in a stone urn and of course, the ethereal backdrop of Tyler Gardens… every detail is more beautiful than the next. If you need us, we’ll be sitting here pouring over these photos all day… Happy Friday! 

We asked our team of fabulous wedding professionals to use the Art Deco color palette – pinks, golds, dark blues – while keeping everything light and playful. Fresh Designs’ florals did just that, especially their centerpiece- a wild, gorgeous arrangement in a stone urn- melding the new and old perfectly. Our rentals from Modern Relics represented the era with the gorgeous sapphire and turquoise goblets and vintage lounge furniture. The pieces from Open Aire Affairs added the fun and modern feel to the tablescape – a pink satin runner and rustic farm table to tie everything together. Gracing our decor were elegant calligraphy place cards from Paperly Studio, and a playful and geometric invitation suite from Elephant Limbo.

The Gardens are full of intricate gazebos, beautiful fountains, statues, stone staircases, and of course lush florals, making them perfect for first looks and all types of portraits. The only difficult part of taking photos there is stopping!

Our bride and bridesmaid dresses were from BHLDN. Here again, the vintage-modern combo was used to create a refreshingly modern Art Deco look. The bride’s gown had an elaborate beading design that threw us back to the olden days while the bridesmaids’ 2-piece outfits added a chic contemporary look to the bridal party. Stephanie of ONLO Beauty created an elegant and romantic tousled look for the bride and trendy modern looks for the bridesmaids. Our groom’s outfit came from Generation Tux, who helped us match our Garden Party theme down to the socks and pocket square!

Modern Romance Fall Garden Wedding by Wedding Chicks

Leandra and Tim’s gorgeous day was full of warmth and whimsy. The Tyler Gardens was the stunning backdrop to host their dreamy celebration with classic details including the groom’s velvet suit, white bridesmaid dresses, and the bride’s crazy beautiful long sleeve lace gown.

For their reception, they have an ultra dreamy design with hanging greenery and soft candlelight. The dreamy florals from Connie Mccallister Flowers feature red + blush pops, pampas grass, and dried blooms. See all the highlights below captured by Emily Wren Photography and in the full gallery.

From Emily Wren PhotographyLeandra + Tim’s wedding at Tyler Garden Weddings was a stunning celebration of the classics–think velvety tuxes, white bridesmaids gowns, and a gorgeous long-sleeved lace bridal gown–that was also full of warmth and whimsy! 


It’s no surprise that these two would have a super stylish wedding. Tim is a Senior Stylist at DnA Salon and the couple first met when Leandra sat down in his chair as a client. It must have been a great haircut because she remembers thinking after that first encounter “I’m going to marry this man!” The couple fell in love from there and have a 1 and a half year old son named Harrison who was proud to be the ring bearer for his parents!


Tyler Gardens was the perfect location to put on an elegant autumnal wedding. The Newtown, PA venue boasts dramatic stonewalls and staircases, a four-tiered Formal Garden, and bronze sculptures created by the original owner of the estate. Connie Mccallister Flowers leaned in to the grandeur of the grounds with bouquets and floral arrangements that featured deep red roses and dahlias, as well as dried flowers and feathery pampas grasses.


Leandra wore a breathtaking long-sleeved lace wedding gown that balanced old world charm with contemporary touches like a streamlined silhouette and open back and Tim wore a deep green velvet suit. Happily Ever After Hair and Shimmer and Spice provided hair and makeup for Leandra and her bridesmaids, who radiated in their white dresses.


Arielle Fera Events worked her magic to make Tyler Gardens even more enchanted than usual and music during the outdoor ceremony was provided by The Philadelphia String Quartet. There was no shortage of splendor in this late October wedding. I loved capturing this sweet couple and their special day!

Wedding Portraits at Tyler Gardens by ProPhoto

These high school sweethearts share a special bond that we couldn’t have been happier to share. Kellie and Adam’s wedding day started with getting ready for photos at home and then sharing the first look at home. We traveled to Tyler Gardens Portraits for some gorgeous portraits that evening.  As soon as you arrive, you’re surrounded by a picturesque European garden, encompassed by lush greens, and a stunning brick path. They wanted to make the most of their formal portrait time before the ceremony started, and did just that! Most couples decide to do a first look and portraits early on so that way the cocktail hour can be spent mingling with loved ones. 

Adam shared that he loves Kellie’s devotion and loyalty to their family and her ability to make him laugh at any moment. Kellie said that “Adam’s determination to always be the best version of himself and the fact that he will do anything for his family”. We enjoyed every minute of the ceremony and reception held at Falls Manor Catering. The tablescapes, uplighting, and neutral boho color pallet totally set the mood!

Their relationship is also fueled by naps, snuggling with their 2 dogs and cat, and exploring the world! It’s no wonder their first dance song was “Better Together “by Luke Combs. They chose it because from the first time they heard it, they knew right away… it was supposed to be their song. It just fits them perfectly. From the ProPhoto by MK team – Thanks for choosing us to celebrate your love and devotion to one another!

This Groom Rocked a Coral Tux + We’re Obsessed b Style Me Pretty

By Christine Diaz ~ I didn’t know I loved coral tuxes until today. Arielle Fera Events put together this fresh and stylish wedding inspiration session in warm pink hues with an incredible team of vendors, and Emily Wren Photography brought it all to life with her skill behind the lens. Trousseau Style absolutely nailed the wedding fashion with the Groom’s statement ensemble, the Bride’s elegant Erin Cole gown, and her lace Bella Belle shoes. May I suggest forwarding your Groom this stunning gallery as a subtle style hint?


Photo: Emily Wren Photography

From Emily Wren Photography… For this styled shoot, we wanted to highlight Tyler Gardens – a new wedding venue in Bucks County, Pennsylvania – and its elegant charm. The historic mansion and 3-tiered gardens drip with old world charm, surrounded by wrought iron gates, elegant statues, stunning fountains, and romantic landscaping. A fairytale venue to say the least – especially when it is covered with florals by Faye and Renee Floral Design!It was also really fun working with Olvia Caridi (you might recognize her from last season of the Bachelor). I loved how perfectly Olivia’s soft blush Erin Cole Bridal wedding gown and the Groom’s coral toned tux matched the rich warm hues of the garden’s stone walls and staircases! Every last detail of this styled wedding shoot flowed together and perfectly fit our warm summer color palette.

Visiting this historic garden is like taking a step back in time to an era of elegance. Our sweetheart table looked just right nestled into the multi-tiered landscaping at Tyler Gardens in the golden evening light! I loved the hand dyed table runner by Hello, Bird. and the wild climbing florals by Faye and Renee Floral Design, which were perfectly and organically styled by Arielle Fera Events! We were simply overwhelmed with the beauty and variety of locations to shoot, and despite the 90 degree heat, we spent hours running around capturing it all and loving every minute of it. It was such a joy working with an incredible group of wedding vendors!

Summer Wedding Celebration at Tyler Gardens in Newtown, PA by Laura Gares Photography

This summer of weddings has been one for the books! I will slowly be catching up on my blogging from this past season, so lets get started! I’m so excited to be sharing Jeff + Ariele’s summer Tyler Gardens wedding celebration. These two officially tied the knot last year, but due to Covid, we were really able to have a grand party this time! This was my first time capturing a Tyler Gardens wedding this year and it was so stunning! Especially with Jeff and Ariele as my main subjects – they were such sweet people and radiated joy the entire time!

Summer Tyler Gardens Wedding

Before I move on to the sneak peek of their beautiful wedding, I just have to share this. So, when a couple books with me, I send them a few questionnaires during our time together, to get to know them better! One question I ask, is to tell me a few things you love about your person. And sheesh, their answers were so beautiful I just had to share!

“Jeff is the most thoughtful, kind and caring man. I love how much he cares about everyone in his life. We are the silliest together. I love how goofy and funny he is. We can laugh and have the best time doing anything. He is my favorite person!” – Ariele, about her husband.

“Ari is like sunshine! She lights up every room she walks into with her bubbly charm and infectious laughter. Her bright smile can make anyone feel welcomed. Once you get to know her, you can’t help but be warmed by her loving and caring personality.” – Jeff, about his wife.

I mean… how adorable is that?! I love that so much! Anyhoo, I hope you love this little peek into their stunning summer wedding at Tyler Gardens! Congratulations again, Mr. and Mrs. Fleming! I’m so grateful to have captured this day!

We Booked Our Wedding Venue a Month Before Getting Engaged

The couple will say “I do” in June at Parque in Newtown Square.

Be prepared, just roll with it, and be flexible — all good tips when planning any wedding-related festivities, particularly during a year in which the world’s projected to see more Big Days than in the past three decades. So this couple was smart when they booked their wedding venue, Parque Ridley Creek, before even getting engaged. They’ll say “I do” next month. But first, a look back at how the groom popped the question and their Tyler Gardens engagement-photo session, with imagery by Emily Wren.

The couple: Kristen Konski, in business operations management for Jaguar Land Rover, and Stephen Keller, a tech sales professional at Salesforce, both 33, of Hoboken

How they met: Kristen and Stephen have Kristen’s friend Jeana to thank for bringing them together. Jeana had recently started a job at Salesforce, where Stephen worked. After Jeana found out he was single and fit her pal’s “type,” she convinced Kristen — a former New York Jets cheerleader who was teaching at the Bar Method at the time — to give him a chance. Despite her hesitancy (Kristen was jaded after too many bad relationships), she let Jeana share her number with Stephen, who reached out for a date.

It took a few weeks to get it on the calendar — Kristen says that time in her life was akin to the film 27 Dresses, filled with friends’ bachelorette parties, bridal or baby showers, and weddings — but that first date at Soho House in NYC was the start of forever.

The attire: Because the scenery at Tyler Gardens is so beautiful, the couple chose to keep their looks timeless and simple — and nod to their blush, ivory and gold color scheme. Kristen donned an A-line ivory maxi dress with pink florals. “I didn’t want to go with anything too stylish as trends fade and don’t always photograph well.”

Stephen donned khakis, a white button-down and a blue blazer.

A final wedding note:  The pair has this to say about their upcoming nuptials: “Just like the past two years, our planning process was unconventional and anything but normal.” But here at Philadelphia Wedding, we think unique approaches make the best stories — and we’d love to hear yours, too

Pakistani Wedding Inspiration

The inspiration began with the love and passion to take a deep dive into the beautiful culture of a true Pakistani couple, capturing the authentic traditions of what their wedding day entails.

Kristina Wittig Event Coordination along with Jess Palatucci Photography collaborated to shoot this true love fairy tale in the enchanted Tyler Gardens, managed by Open Aire Affairs. Their couple was magnificent to work with, guiding them through their real life story, assisting them to capture every detail, as they learned about their culture and what surrounds their big day!

The gorgeous invitation designed by April Lynn, from April Lynn designs was one to capture the eye and set the tone for any guest attending this wedding. The heavy weight laser cut invitations, with glimmering champagne and red colors shined from a mile away. These unique invitations were simply stunning and added a true elegance to the design of the shoot, along with the specially designed menu and place seating cards.

The bride’s gorgeous beaded gown, purchased from a small boutique in Pakistan was the focal point for Kristina’s inspiration when choosing colors. Accenting her gorgeous gown was the traditional dupatta which brought this shoot to life with its vibrant gold beaded maroon fabric.

Kim Bensing from Studio Sprig in Doylestown, Bucks County, created a gorgeous centerpiece and bouquet filled with vibrant and luscious dahlia paired with textured celosia, trailing eucalyptus and ivy with a touch of fragrant rosemary. These flowers were unlike any you have ever seen, and were a staple to the gorgeous Farmhouse table used to create their vision for reception seating. This floral arrangement complimented the texture of the of the sequined gold table runner and fire orange napkins.

This remarkable team could never have captured such truly amazing and breathtaking images without the extremely hardworking and talented Jess Palatucci, a fine art wedding photographer from Philadelphia. She incorporates real film into her galleries, and her light and airy yet bold & film inspired editing style brought these pictures to life!

Ashley from Kiss and Makeup Professional Wedding Artistry created a flawless look complimenting the brides natural beauty, leaving her face glowing! Kristina then worked with the bride for the traditional dupata pinning.

No wedding would be complete without a cake. Denise from D’s cups designed a decedent white fondant with gold accent five tier wedding cake. This cake was draped with a beautiful red sheer fabric with gold trimmed detail to match the brides dupatta, headpiece and gold jewelry. It was a simply beautiful cake that was sure to make heads turn.

Lastly, the team wanted to bring a unique vendor in who would attribute to the gorgeous landscaping the grounds at Tyler Gardens had to offer. BackDroppers flower wall backdrop rentals is located in Philadelphia. The backdrop provided for the styled shoot was their signature silk flower wall. The wall was built by Kevin and over a 1000 flowers were hand placed and designed on the wall by Lesley. This wall was a mix of roses, peonies, hydrangeas and lilies which helped to create a beautiful yet romantic garden backdrop to highlight some of the gorgeous photos taken of the beautiful couple.

Following this truly magical day the bride wrote,

“This shoot allowed Bilal and I to feel the same giddy feeling we did when we got married a few months back. There’s a certain beauty to putting those outfits back on without the stress and pressure of the wedding. Jess and the team made us feel like a true bride and groom that day and Tyler Gardens is a magical place to be. This shoot let us reawaken passion, love, culture and true beauty. We especially wanted to do this shoot because you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who wants to do a shoot for a Pakistani Muslim couple and represent their culture in its true authentic beauty- but here is this shoot calling our name and these incredible people who wanted to show just that. We’re so grateful!

Tyler Gardens Wedding with Soft Romantic Pastels by Hope Helmuth

To begin, we love photographing a Tyler Gardens Wedding. Truly, it is such a romantic and beautiful location. The soft color scheme this couple chose complimented the venue and elevated the scene. Check out more from this classic day below!

We began with a touching first look! I always recommend this if a couple wants to complete photos before the festivities begin.Also, this was my first time working with Krista of Heritage Gatherings at this Tyler Gardens wedding. I fell in love with her romantic and artful approach to floral design. I especially loved the blue roses and cream dahlias.

Undoubtedly, we always love working at Tyler Gardens. From the venue – “The Formal Gardens were constructed in 1931 by George F. and Stella Elkins Tyler to provide a formal landscape setting for their estate. The four-tier Formal Gardens were influenced by French and Italian gardens and feature varieties of flora, beautiful lush lawns, dramatic stone walls and staircases, gravel walks, fountains, and bronze sculptures. Tyler Gardens are reminiscent of a golden age of elegance with fairy tale charm.”

Next, guests began to arrive and the ceremony was held! We had such lovely bright light this summer afternoon. Without doubt, the couple was glowing. Certainly, this ceremony site is a perfect backdrop to say “I do.” It is framed by romantic gardens. I love seeing how different florists flower the wall. It’s also so fun to attend a Tyler Gardens wedding. The big tent in the back is the perfect place to celebrate and still be outdoors.

In conclusion, this Tyler Gardens wedding was soft, charming and certainly timeless. We can’t wait to be back at this venue!

Winter Romance Wedding Inspiration in Bucks County, PA by Toni Marie Photography

Getting married in the winter? Here’s our take on a winter romantic themed wedding in the gardens of Bucks County, Pennsylvania


Lush Tyler Gardens Wedding by Ettie Kim

Interview With Tyler Gardens, a Philadelphia Wedding Venue by Carly Fuller Photography

Brides and grooms planning their wedding in the Philadelphia area have recently gained a new wedding venue with amazing views! Tyler Gardens in Newtown, PA can accommodate up to 400 guests, includes a spacious reception tent rental, and is managed by Open Aire Affairs. You can even upgrade to a clear ceiling and have your reception under the stars!

A Wedding Photographer’s Dream Venue

The views and scenery add so much beauty and elegance to the wedding experience at Tyler Gardens. Ceremonies and receptions can overlook the lush gardens and landscaped grounds and each season offers its own charm and style. Autumn surrounds the venue in warm Fall tones. Spring brings bright, cheerful colors. Summer maintains the lush greens and colorful landscaping, to which I think they use a garden care service not unlike Trugreen, you can see their different North Carolina Trugreen locations and see what states they operate in. Winter weddings have a unique style with moody tones and dramatic backgrounds. I love that couples can plan their wedding at Tyler Gardens with any romantic style in mind and get breathtaking wedding photos.

What’s one interesting fact about Tyler Gardens?

The Formal Gardens were constructed in 1931 by George F. and Stella Elkins Tyler to provide a formal landscape setting for their estate, Indian Council Rock. The four-tier Formal Gardens were influenced by French and Italian gardens and feature varieties of flora, beautiful lush lawns, dramatic stone walls and staircases, gravel walks, fountains, and bronze sculptures.

How do you help couples customize their wedding?

Though we are not event stylists, but venue coordinators, we listen to each bride carefully and help them start their visions for the venue. A fun way we like to connect with the brides is getting a Pinterest board started. We also guide them on the next step they need to make. In addition, we also recommend upgrades that fit their tastes. Some great ones include farm tables, fire pits as well as fun paper lanterns.

What do you have planned for the future?

We have multiple weddings booked at Tyler Gardens and we look forward to keeping the Gardens alive and a special part of Bucks County and its history.

The Details for All the Wedding Planning Brides and Grooms

How far out should a couple pay a deposit to secure your venue for her wedding day?

Once a “soft hold” is placed with us, the bride has 2 weeks to review the contract and give the initial deposit of $2000.

What is included when a couple books your venue for their wedding?

$4000 includes exclusive use of the gardens for 5 hours. We can add additional hours for a fee. The $35 per guest cost covers the tent rental, tables, chairs, restrooms as well as the bridal suite.

There are so many beautiful areas for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and photos!

What makes Tyler Gardens unique?

There are so many things that set it aside from other venues. My favorite thing about it would have to be the history of the gardens and how wonderfully it has been preserved. Another wonderful feature of the venue, brides can all make it their own! Each tier of the gardens can be used in a unique way. There are so many beautiful areas for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and photos!


Romantic Golden Hour Engagement Session at Tyler Gardens by Philly in Love

Set at the gorgeous grounds of Tyler Gardens, this engagement session captures the beautiful landscape nestled at this venue.  Melissa and Ken (and their adorable pup Maizey) are melting our hearts with their undeniable charm.  Their lovely proposal story and love have us totally smitten, and if you love pups as much as we do then you’re definitely going to fall for their sweet furbaby.  Rachel Betson Photography perfectly captured this day during the golden hour, and these photos are  shining through to our hearts!

Engagement Session Inspiration:

“We love being outside! We were going for a romantic, authentic vibe with a garden backdrop. We also love our Golden-doodle Maizey so much, we wanted to include her in our photos too.”

Wedding Planning:

“I am not going to lie, it was definitely pretty stressful at first. A lot of places were already booked for next year when we were looking for our venue. After a few months of searching, we found the perfect venue! After that, everything else has been falling into place and it’s been so much fun! I love it so much!”

Engagement Session Experience:

“Rachel is the best! She is so talented and she made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot. We had a lot of fun working with her! She’s super professional and knew exactly what we wanted our photos to look like. I am so excited for our wedding photos!”

Lauren Fair and Emily Wren are undoubtedly masters at capturing these beautiful details, and having the opportunity to work alongside of them was an honor and a wonderful learning experience for me. Lauren Fair never ceases to amaze with just the perfect composition and stunning styling of every detail she sets her eyes one and Emily Wren simply wows you with her mastery in capturing movements, bridal elegance and architecture. Working together as fellow photographers is a gratifying and heartwarming experience, and seeing the difference in each photographer’s perspective is both insightful and delightful.


Dusty Blue Winter Wedding Inspiration by Red Oak Weddings

Whimsical, ethereal and oh-so pretty, today’s dusty blue wedding inspiration from Amber Dawn Photography is everything we love about Tyler Gardens, and then some. The fresh winter florals and the romantic tablescape.. the most beautiful blue wedding gown and the effortlessly-chic hair and makeup: all of it adds up to winter-wedding perfection. There’s so much inspiration to be found in this shoot, and any bride and groom could easily add some of these simple touches to make your day even more elegant. We’re totally smitten, and know you will be, too! 

From Amber: Beautiful winter styled shoot at new venue, Tyler Gardens, in Newtown, Bucks County. I fell in love with the manicured gardens, gorgeous statues, and elegant architecture.
