Philadelphia Wedding Florist : Rebecca & Josh at the Olde Bar

The Olde Bar in Philadelphia is the perfect venue for city lovers looking for a step back in time.  The exposed brick, stained glass accents, and smooth wood details make this event space seem like a private discovery.  Rebecca and Josh saw the potential for the Olde Bar to match their needs for a non-traditional, intimate wedding space.

The couple showed their appreciation for their friends and family by creating a extensively detailed atmosphere for them to enjoy the night in.  We were so happy to be a part of their creative vision, and were honored to be included in what was so obviously a very intricately planned event.  Love Me Do Photography stuck gold once again in delivering these flawless images showing the romance and details played throughout the day. 

Rebecca's bouquet had a vintage appeal, with a cafe au lait dahlia, burgundy dahlias, hanging amaranthus, anemones, berries, rosemary, seeded eucalyptus and astilbe. 

Josh's bout matched the color scheme with tiny spray roses, rosemary and berries.

What a beautiful couple - Love the cobblestone walkway!

The darker lighting in the Olde Bar adds a touch of mystery - we played up the theme with this vintage lounge setting, bringing in our settee's, old steamer trunk, side table and gold trays with bud vases.  Flickering candlelight illuminated the area, and smilax vines hanging from the ceiling brought it all together. 

We love the longer marble high tops that sit in the cocktail area, and only added a few pewter bud vases to dress up the space. 

We continued to weave smilax vines around the room and lined the windowsills with elevated votives.  We just love the way it emcompasses the tables and serves as a final touch for the decor.  Centerpieces were gold vases holding arrangements of roses, dahlias, berries, greenery and astilbe.

Added details like the rosemary napkin treatments, gold table numbers and specialty linen all joined together for one beautiful outcome in this reception space.

The couple chose a floral chandelier to hang over the dance floor as an amazing statement piece to set the stage.  We have been dying to get our hands dirty doing the filled-center installations, and this work of floral art including amarathus, astilbe, dahlias, roses and layers of vines did not disappoint!  Fairy lights were strung around the piece to take the romance to the next level. 

We loved this cake table set-up!  Gold eleveated votives and candles matched the cake plate, and the soft lavender linen was complemented by lavender roses, blueperries, pink garden roses and deep burgundy dahlias.  Draped eucalyptus gave a bit of a wild touch for this gorgeous display.

Congratulations, Rebecca and Josh!  Thank you so much for allowing us to get creative and step outside the box with your gorgeous wedding decor.  Wishing you all the best!
