The 7 Best Outdoor Wedding Venues in Philadelphia By Joy

On the 200-acre Tyler Gardens estate, you’ll find a five-acre garden inspired by the eclectic cultures in France, Italy, and Philadelphia. The mansion and gardens on this estate are like a utopia in Bucks County, making guests feel like they’ve time-traveled back to the sophisticated days of the 1930s.

These four-tier, formal gardens were constructed in 1930 by George F. and Stella Elkins Tyler and feature varieties of flora and fauna, manicured lawns, stately stone walls and staircases, gravel walks, old-world fountains, and dramatic bronze sculptures. As the website aptly states, these gardens “are reminiscent of a golden age of elegance with fairy tale charm.”

The wedding package includes five hours of event time, a reception in a large tent with vinyl-wood flooring and a full lighting package, tables for different uses, and mahogany Chiavari chairs and ceremony chairs. It also provides a dance floor, bar area, patio furniture with a fire pit, fans or heaters depending on the weather, and a bike bar for cocktail hour. Additional offerings, like chandeliers for the reception tent, are also available.

Pakistani Wedding Inspiration at Tyler Gardens by The Big Fat Indian Wedding

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!”

Recap of Tyler Gardens Grand Opening by Polka Dot Events

Tyler Gardens in Newtown, PA is an incredible wedding venue that just opened its doors this past January. The property is the stunning backyard of the old Tyler family estate in Bucks County, built in the 1920s and modeled after French and Italian sculpture gardens. When Rae from OPEN AIRE AFFAIRS reached out to us to design and plan their Grand Opening Party, we knew we wanted to bring in 1920 and Art Deco design mixed with romantic, European style.  From there we helped create the ultimate wedding set up with some of Philadelphia’ top wedding vendors!  Check out the photos below by the talented CARLY FULLER PHOTOGRAPHY for some highlights of the event

Heather + Nick’s St. Patrick’s Day Wedding by JL Original Designs

What a fun day! Only our second time we ever had a St. Patrick’s Day wedding. Heather and Nick chose Tyler Gardens for their venue, a tent wedding in March!  The snow made us so nervous. March’s weather can be so unpredictable. This is the earliest we ever planned a tent wedding. We got a break and the wedding day was beautiful.

Gold sashes on every chair, the guests were welcomed into the tent to soft Celtic music.  The bridal party did not disappoint as they came down the aisle.  Bridesmaids in slate blue gowns with braided hair carried yellow and red shields decaled with the family coat of arms.  The Groomsmen all in kilts made of the Groom’s family tartan plaid adorned with swords.

Tyler Garden’s tent was designed with assorted trees, plants, lanterns and twinkle lights to create a Celtic woodland.  Heather and Nick chose farm tables with italian ruscus and candles running down the center of the each table.  Moss covered table numbers,  favors of seeds and honey completed each table.  Touches of family tartan, the luck of the Irish and a visit from Hef (Hawk from Elmwood ZOO) to complete Heather and Nick’s 2018 St. Patrick’s wedding reception.

Congratulations to Heather and Nick, we wish you both many years of happiness!!

8 Unexpected Spots to Tie the Knot in and Around Bucks County by Bucks Happening

You’re probably familiar with Bucks County Community College for their educational offerings, but they’re also the site of the beautiful Tyler Gardens. The Tyler Mansion is arguably the grandest home ever built in Bucks County and believed to be the last of the great estates ever constructed in the United States. In 1987, Tyler Hall (as the mansion is now known) and Tyler Formal Gardens were placed on the National Register of Historical Places. 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. Today, the Gardens provide a stunning backdrop for a wedding with immaculate landscaping, historic buildings and plenty of old world charm. (Tip: Piccolo Trattoria, a Happening List Winner for Catering, is one of the exclusive vendors at Tyler Gardens.) Tyler Gardens are located within the Bucks County Community College’s Newtown Campus at 275 Swamp Road, Newtown, PA.

Tyler Gardens Wedding by Maria Mack Photography

Matt and Toby had a lovely wedding at Tyler Gardens. After meeting on match.com these two hit it off right away. Both kind and soft spoken, they are a perfect match .

 Toby’s mom and sister helped with the planning processes and DIY projects. Their wedding had a soft, romantic feel. Papertini did a beautiful job with the florals. Congratulations Toby and Matt, thank you for having us be a part of your day!

Boho Chic Autumn Styled Shoot at Tyler Gardens by Tricia Notte

I am certain if I ever renew my vows, this will be exactly how I will plan it. Bridal Flower Hat. Triangular Arch. Pampas Grass. Hand Painted Leather Jacket. Leather place cards & seating charts. And yes, more Pampas Grass. Copper Mule Mugs, okay, that too! The day before the shoot, it was clear that the weather was going to be less than promising. After some deliberation, we decided to stick to the plan and I’m so glad we did. We can’t control the weather and sometimes despite our hopes and dreams, it rain and is colder than expected but fortunately if you have a team of amazing vendors, it will be just fine! Tyler Gardens has absolutely amazing gardens which we didn’t get to utilize but they also offer some great “Plan B” options which is important to consider when planning. So, I give you, our plan B here at Tyler Gardens 🙂 I love styled shoots because it’s an opportunity to collaborate with other amazing artists and to bring a vision to life. I’m so grateful to this wonderful team and highly recommend that you check them out for your wedding!

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!!

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! 

HOW THEY MET

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!

THIS VENUE IS GORGEOUS

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.

ONE STYLISH COUPLE

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.

LATE OCTOBER WEDDING

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?

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!

As featured on Ruffled Blog

This Parisian chic wedding inspiration balances the organic, flourishing beauty of the earth with the structured, pattern-forward style of the city. And long story short, this is the kind of whimsical garden wedding inspo we crave! So pop on some La Vie En Rose, enjoy some macarons and linger over these fine art images from Styled Social attendee Haley Richter Photography with us.

Built in 1931, we knew Tyler Gardens would provide the perfect European-esque escape this side of the Atlantic. The lush lawns feature an array of bronze sculptures, fountains, staircases and even labyrinthine hedges. Beauty at every turn! The formal gardens became even more epic with the addition of asymmetrical floral pillars AND a custom built arch structure canopying the aisle. You can thank Belovely Design for these innovative, thought-provoking blooms!

Copper + Chloe planned the details with intention, and we’re thrilled with the way the flora inspired fashion, handmade paper goods and color blocked blush + noir tabletop pieces came together.

Speaking of floral-inspired fashion, this gown from Tatyana Merenyuk is a total dream! With embroidered lace appliqués trailing down the back and a delicate overlay highlighting the sleek silhouette, this just might be the chicest gown we ever did see. On the other side of the fashion spectrum is Stitch & Tie , providing a pretty legendary groomswear ensemble. The light blue fabric paired with a silk houndstooth pocket square, this groom is looking sharp.

Parisian chic wedding inspo in all the right ways, right? Noir + mauve hues never looked so good!

Brittany + Ryan Tyler Garden Wedding by James Webb

Brittany and Ryan’s Tyler Gardens wedding day was the true definition of a perfect wedding. Let’s start with the venue. Built in 1931, Tyler Gardens was constructed to compliment the sprawling estate, Indian Counsel Rock. With it’s sprawling grounds and gorgeous landscape, it was the perfect location for Brittany and Ryan.

Then there’s Brittany and Ryan. I can’t say enough how beautiful these two souls are. Their kindness radiates through their smiles and demeanor, spend a minute with them and you’ll see for yourself. It’s something I quickly picked up during their engagement session.

With help from the awesome wedding coordinator team at Diamonds and Details, their whole day went as smoothly as one could hope for. Brittany got ready at a hotel, while Ryan prepped at their home. Once prepped, we headed to Tyler Garden for their first look. Ryan was vibrating with excitement to see Brittany. Once they saw each other, you could see all the anxiety, pressure and nervousness leave their bodies!

Guests gathered in the formal garden to watch Ryan take his place in front of the alter. With the bridal party in place, guests turned their attention to Brittany. She stood, by herself, in front of family and friends, and walked herself down the aisle. Brittany’s father passed away, so he wasn’t physically able to be there. But I’m sure that he was there with her that entire day. Capturing that powerful moment gave me chills.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a sunset cocktail hour in the gardens, then danced the night away with the incredible DJ Perry Angelozzi! Here are some of my favorites from their Tyler Gardens wedding.

Congratulations, Brittany and Ryan!

Tyler Gardens Wedding Photography | | AUBREY AND HARRISON by Samantha Jay Photography

Aubrey and Harrison were married at the beautiful Tyler Gardens on a chilly autumn day in November. Planned to a t by Andi Schilawski of Forever Love Events the day went off without a hitch! Aubrey and Harrison decided to do a first look in the garden preceding their ceremony. Aubrey descended a beautiful stone staircase as Harrison watched in awe of his beautiful bride. This was the moment they had dreamt of- a private moment for them to soak in the day together. They walked the grounds together and talked about the day. Their excitement was so lovely to see. We met up with their bridal party and family before tucking everyone away prior to the ceremony.

As the sun began to set, Aubrey and Harrison joined their guests in the garden to exchange their vows. Through happy tears and with lots of laughter, these two pledged their lives to each other. Sealing their vows with a kiss they walked off into their new life together as Mr. & Mrs. From there it was a beautiful evening of dinner, dancing and celebrating with all of those they love most. Check out this romantic wedding!

Tyler Gardens Engagement Session-AMANDA + DANIEL by Lisa Hornak

Oh these two.  I think I’ve been starting just about every post like this lately but my couples have just been blowing me away!  I met Amanda back when we were still in high school and I was so honored when she asked me to be their wedding photographer!  After meeting Daniel, it was very clear to see how much these two truly bring out the best in each other.  I have never seen two people with such infectious smiles and such sweet, sweet souls.  There session was filled with so much joy, laughter and a lot of dancing and twirling.  I left yet another session being reminded of just how rare a love like this truly is.   I can not wait for these two to tie the knot in September!

Haley + Chad Wedding at Tyler Gardens Estate by Moses Cruz Photography

Haley and Chad’s are married! What happened with the weather on this day was simply miraculous. And I remember two things. First, I remember going to sleep the night before bummed about the forecast. See Haley and Chad chose Tyler Gardens as the location for their wedding. A location that has so much beauty … outdoors. And though the weather initially looked like it was not going to cooperate, it came around. The second thing I remember is a bunch of my wedding photographer friends texting me early that day after the forecast had updated about how happy they were that we’d all get beautiful skies for this day! And we did! I’m sure Haley something to do with that. Haley and Chad held their absolutely beautiful ceremony at Tyler Gardens in Newtown Pennsylvania. They decided to steer away from tradition just a bit and had a first look. Soon after they were surrounded by family and friends as Haley walked down the aisle. And OH what a party!

Congratulations to the newlyweds! 

And thank you to each vendor that helped make Haley and Chad’s wedding absolutely perfect!

Dreamy Styled Shoot at Tyler Gardens by Keith Layne Photography

Back in September I had the unique and exciting opportunity to photograph a styled shoot at Tyler Gardens in Newtown, PA. If you’re wondering what a styled shoot is, it’s a group effort from a variety of vendors that come together to create a stunning mock event or wedding.

What was especially exciting was that Tyler Gardens had just recently opened its doors and this styled shoot was only the second to be produced there.

About Tyler Gardens

Tyler Gardens is reminiscent of the Golden Age of glamour. Built in 1931 by George F. and Stella Elkins Tyler, the gardens were constructed to create a formal landscape for their estate, Indian Council Rock. Today you can see the variety of flora, lush lawns and pathways that were influenced by French and Italian gardens of the day.

The Day

The day that we shot was sunny and in the mid-70’s — the perfect atmosphere to be in the gardens and capture this bright and Spring-inspired shoot. The rock star team came together to create some of the most stunning moments — and the backdrop couldn’t have been better. Each nook and cranny of the gardens provided unique scenery for our day.

Melissa May did a brilliant job pairing cheerful oranges and blues with the stately stone backdrop of Tyler Gardens. And that sapphire ring! We’re all still a little dazed by it’s Gatsby dazzle.
