Ellen & Michael // Wedding at Tyler Gardens

Photography by Jon Athens Photography


Sometimes two people just seem meant for each other.  In the case of these two adorable clients, an ocean couldn’t keep them apart.  This was our first half Swedish wedding.  Which just literally meant the wedding was 1/2 Swedes.  Pretty much the nicest people we have ever met.  This was also the first Swedish, let alone any, wedding at the new TYLER GARDENS venue in Newtown, PA.   The venue is gorgeous.  The staff was great.  The couple was incredible.  It was a pretty perfect wedding.  Special thanks to Lauren, again, for knocking it out of the park second shooting.  Take a look!

50 Creative Wedding Favors That Will Delight Your Guests

Our creative Wedding Favors got rounded up on Martha Stewart Weddings for our beautiful styled shoot with Emily Wren Photography & Arielle Fera Events. Make sure to check out the rest of our styled shoot up on Style Me Pretty! 



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!”

Modern Elegance Styled Shoot- MunaLuchi

Fall 2017 MunaLuchi Bride Magazine Feature

Modern Elegance (19)

MunaLuchi Bride Magazine Fall 2017 Feature – Modern Elegance Styled Shoot!

Read all about the design elements and inspirational details in this stunning “Modern Elegance” Styled Shoot – featuring the work of MunaLuchi Coterie members Sheronda Seawright Photography, event design and florals by Event Loft, and Hair & Makeup Artistry by Just B Beautiful.

Sheronda Seawright Photography – “Modern Elegance took place at the lovely outdoor location of Tyler Gardens. Eilena with Event Loft did a spectacular job pulling in soft white floral to compliment the greenery of this perfect venue. Some of the highlights include the stunning floral ceremony ring and mirrored aisle runner designed by Event Loft, the elegant floating bridal cake designed by Desserts By Dana, the heavenly white floral arrangements for the ceremony, as well as the reception and cocktail tables. Also, the bold pops of color in the bride’s blue Badgley Mischka shoes and groom’s blue suit and tie for their first look commands attention. To top things off, what says elegant better than a mirrored acrylic invitation and menu designed by April Lynn Designs?”

Eilena from Event Loft (Design & Floral) – “Modern Elegance was initially going to be called Garden Luxe, but as I sat down and planned the design with the rest of the team the shoot evolved into Modern Elegance. After visiting the venue Tyler Garden all I could visualize was all white with hints of silver which is bold within itself but it turned out beautifully. The inspiration came from digging deep to show a look that is uncommon in this twists that you would never expect but at the same time, it can be easily replicated for a wedding or special event without going too crazy with inspiration.”

B Wilson from Just B Beautiful (Hair & Makeup) – “I often gather inspiration from many of my real life luxury Just B Beautiful brides and this shoot is no exception. Many of today’s brides are not only making dress changes for the reception but also changing up their entire beauty look as well. For the ceremony portion I decided to give the ‘bride’ a true bridal look taking cues from the innocence of the beautiful Pronovias gown. The floral details and cathedral length veil were perfect accessories to the sleek strait hair and youthful makeup look. 
For the second look again taking from my real life brides, it’s time to party! Giving our bride a truly modern, sleek, and sexy intricate updo that plays on the deep-v and details of this stunning reception. Also not to be upstaged by his bride for our ‘groom’ Kenny we decided to give him a sleek dapper hair look that paired so very well with his navy blue suit. The overall look is clean, flawless skin, with bold details that truly makes this a Modern Elegant look.”

This Groom Rocked a Coral Tux + We’re Obsessed- 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?

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!

Autumn Garden Elopement- The Perfect Pallette

It’s friday m’dears! And since we’re officially into fall, we thought we’d serve up your daily dose of pretty by way of this autumn inspired elopement. Event designer Forever Love Events made magic happen on this day and with these lush and lovely blooms by Ram Floral Be still my heart. Mariya Stecklair Photography, these images are everything!

From the team, “The idea behind this shoot, was to capture a sweet and romantic, intimate elopement in a purple garden that carried a regal charm. To pull out some elegant, unique elements and interweave with a more homelike, welcoming vibe.”

 Autumn Garden Elopement

“With many shades of burgundy being strong contenders for fall, a warmer purple palette felt like a fresher take on a warmer fall color.”

 Autumn Garden Elopement

“With fall being a season of brisk mornings with only slight touches of warmth lingering among the yellowing leaves, adding a purple tone was the goal to add some warmth.”

Venue Walkthrough by Wedding Lovely


Today’s venue walkthrough is of the stunning Tyler Gardens in Philadelphia, PA and our virtual tour guide is the Venue Coordinator RaeChani Wilson from Open Aire Affairs. Enjoy!


The Formal Gardens were constructed in 1931 by George F. and Stella Elkins Tyler to provide a landscape setting for their estate, Indian Council Rock. The four-tier 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.

See more after the cut!



This is a BRAND NEW venue in the Bucks County area. So none of your friends or family members have gotten married here yet! We are very excited to feature garden parties throughout the seasons as well as host fairy tale weddings.



There is a classic & whimsical feeling when you step into the gardens that just makes for a great backdrop for the Classic Garden or Gastby Bride.



I just LOVE each design detail that comes together making each client different. I haven’t hosted the same wedding twice yet as our tented pavilions are a full blank slate to really do anything you would like. We can go from full rustic to modern, & from pops of color to an all white wedding. Our clients can customize the look & feel of their event  venue with our blank canvas approach.



We have more than fifteen sizes and kinds of tables, hundreds of variations in color and design of linens, as well as utensils and tableware in a multitude of designs. We also have different lighting designs  as well as a clear top to make your reception space bring in the nature surrounding the venue.



The funniest one would be when I had one client that wanted to have their puppy walk down the aisle with the rings. Things didn’t go as planned of course the dog ran right past the bride & groom into the field to chase butterflies. So part of the bridal party & myself chased after the little thief to get the rings to finish the ceremony. Photographer & most of the guests got it all on camera!



It’s really about what the couple envisions and how it makes them feel that day. I have a lot of the couples family members & friends voice their opinions but at the end of the day I always ask the couple what do they want. It’s hard to make decisions for everyone on your guest list. So go with what makes you happy!



I always suggest to look for the vision of the venue. How do you want to feel on your day looking around and seeing all your guest mingle about? Your full vision of what you expect will be the backdrop of your venue. Also, go with what you want, not something your family & friends expect, it’s your day that will last a lifetime.
