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.”

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

“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.”

“The bird chosen to be placed at the top of the cake is the Eastern Blue Bird, a common garden bird…The floral and greenery detail on the cake is all hand crafted and perfected to be a hanging show stopper!”

“The bride wore a gorgeous Maggie Sottero Designs dress (by Desiree Hartsock) which had stunning beadwork and a royal-like train and she just flowed down the stairs with grace and glamour, to her groom.”

Venue Walkthrough by Wedding Lovely

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-164

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!

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR VENUE:

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!

WHAT MAKES YOUR BUSINESS UNIQUE?

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.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-135.jpg

DO YOU TARGET ANY PARTICULAR NICHE?

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.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-132

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE JOB?

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.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-148.jpg

HOW DO YOU HELP COUPLES CUSTOMIZE THEIR WEDDINGS?

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.

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-127.jpg

DO YOU HAVE ANY FUNNY STORIES ABOUT A PAST WEDDING OR EVENT?

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!

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-111.jpg

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED?

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!

Philadelphia-wedding-photographer-BG-Productions-134.jpg

ANY TIPS FOR BRIDES ON THE HUNT FOR A VENUE?

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.

Glam Photo Shoot

This whimsical and flirty styled shoot has an undeniably modern flare and oh so sexy vibe! The scene was set at Bucks County’s newest wedding venue, Tyler Gardens, which is on the grounds of Bucks County Community College. The picturesque grounds of Tyler Formal Gardens are nothing short of breathtaking! The landscape is reminiscent of an old world European garden, featuring a maze of boxwood hedges as well as tiered levels of grass, fountains and stone stairways. It is a setting unlike any other in the area. We complimented this grand backdrop with lush pink and green blooms, gold and wood tone accents and black and white details for a bit of drama. Our models stood out in black and white bridal attire as well as blush toned ensembles. The eclectic mix of modern, rustic, vintage and glamour painted a picture perfect scene. There are so many sweet details from the antique pink settee, sequined sweetheart table and King Louis white love seat to the wedding arbor and grand table-scapes, it’s hard to choose a favorite. Our dessert displays featured a chocolate naked cake dripping with goodness, a fondant Pink Cake Box Creations and Nina’s Ice Cream Waffle Truck…Yes please! The over the top florals were glamorously understated with modern lines and whimsical colors and details. Single Bloom Bundles tipping out of glass vases make for a show stopping table-scape especially when paired with gold mercury glass mirrors. And what is more romantic then a seemingly suspended floral garland for the head table! Complete with draping greens, lucite candelabras, gold geometric accents and wood charger plates, this table-scape is the wow that every wedding needs. From floral and decor, to dessert, props and stunningly stylish formal wear, this styled shoot is dripping with inspiration.
