Philadelphia Wedding Florist : Katie & Dan at the Franklin Institute

Is there anything more romantic than a starry night?  Katie and Dan certainly didn't think so, and decided that the best way to celebrate their love story was a wedding ceremony under the stars of the planetarium in the Franklin Institute.  This was a Wow Factor wedding, with hundreds of twinkling lights on the ground and in the sky.

We are incredibly impressed by Langdon Photography's talent for being able to take beautiful, detailed photographs in such a dark venue.  The darkness worked perfectly for the romantic evening theme, and we are blown away by Langdon's ability to portray it as such! 

Please enjoy this swoon-worthy, wedding with us! 

Katie's bridal bouquet was a mix of anemone, white lily, eucalyptus, thistle, white roses and succulents for a textured look. 

Katie's bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her own bouquets, without the succulents or white lily.  We love how those scabiosa pods and ferns add character to the soft and pretty whites! 

Dan's bout of a white spray rose, thistle and succulent coordinated perfectly with his bride's selections. 

Katie and Dan provided this canopy for us to decorate, and we were happy to do so with layers of curly willow, pussy willow branches and vines.  Twinkle lights were woven around the greenery and corners of the canopy to really make this space shine as it embraced the couple during their vows.  

We are OBSESSED with these aisle arrangements!  Glass cloche's encased moss, potted plants and succulents to cater to Katie's request for globally-safe botanicals.  Each arrangement was placed on a wood slice, and twinkle lights added a sense of wonder to these lovely pieces.   

This is seriously the most romantic ceremony we've seen!  During set up, many passersby kept peeking in and gushing over this venue selection - we can hardly blame them!

We placed wooden planks on the couple's placecard table to line the guests' cards.  Potted succulents were scattered between rows, along with votive candles and Italian ruscus.

For some of Katie and Dan's centerpieces, we reused those amazing aisle arrangements, with white votives spread throughout for some extra shine. Ruscus runners brought the whole look together for a very natural feel.

Tall cylinder vases helped create some height, with a moss base, climbing cherry branches and twinkle lights galore.  

The couple's final centerpiece selection was our gold terrariums, with succulents, potted plants and moss.  Rose heads and votive candles made for a nice mix-up in these arrangements.  And we can't get enough with how perfect the twinkle lights are for a soft glow around the room! 

Much like the rest of the couple's wedding, their cake was sleek and clean with touches of natural greenery.  White flowers rested on the top tier, with stems of ruscus creeping out and creating a border on the bottom.  


A huge congratulations to this couple!  We were so happy to be a part of this magical wedding day, and we wish you all the best!
