Philadelphia Wedding Florist : Amber & Franco at Ballroom at the Ben

Delivering weddings in the city always comes with an extra sense of excitement and chaos.  Our scenic drive from long flat fields to the archways and skyscrapers of Philadelphia.  We have to hold our breath around every corner hoping our trusty van can stay steady enough to keep everything intact - don't worry brides, it hasn't let us down yet!

While we're always grateful to come back to our quiet town, it's photos like these that remind us why city weddings are so much fun.  Seeing the contrast of the soft, romantic arrangements against these huge, concrete buildings shows how much nature can truly shine in any environment.  Our talented friends at Art + Life Photography shared these urban wedding photographs with us, and you can just feel the energy.  Certainly doesn't hurt that Amber and Franco were such a fun couple!

Check out their Ballroom at the Ben wedding below!

That huge white peony is to die for and we love the pink and grey accents to keep this bouquet classic without going down the all-white route.   Amber gave us this brooch to add too, and it is one of our favorites. West_Siciliano_Art__Life_photography_DSC_2226_lowIt is amazing how Art + Life Photography can take such a busy scene and still make sure that the couple stands out so beautifully - some true talent to be appreciated right here!

Amber's bridesmaids looked amazing in these gowns, and I'm ready to order some of their statement necklaces!  Amber had given us different brooches to attach to each of their bouquets, which was such a sweet personal touch.  See some more inspiration for brooch accessories on bouquets here.

These bridesmaids' bouquets are these gigantic peonies to match their dresses, and more white dahlias, dusty miller, scabiosa and astilbe to coordinate with the bride.

West_Siciliano_Art__Life_photography_amber_franco205_low We filled up some of these birdcages with the astilbe, peonies, and ranunculus to use as centerpieces.

Love the gold votives placed around the cake stand, this is such an elegant setting.
