Kimmel Center Wedding:
Caitlin + Stephen

When you get married at a place like the Kimmel Center, which has the beautiful Hamilton Garden atrium letting light pour through, it’s one less thing to worry about when the rain is pouring down. La Petite Fleur had the room decked out in romantic pink, ivory and gold. The room was light and airy, the complete opposite of what it felt like outside. Caitlin’s bouquet of peonies smelled so good, too…perfectly reminiscent of running through a spring garden barefoot when you were a kid.

The loveliest element of their wedding were the lace shawls hand-knit by Caitlin’s bridesmaids. What a sweet tradition that for each of their weddings they knit a shawl (along with one for the busy bride). Furthermore, one bridesmaid even knitted blue socks to go with Caitlin’s sequined Converse sneakers. Stephen was looking dapper in his Marine dress blues, too.

Most of all, we really loved the throw-back high-school charm (black and white tiled floors, the library where they used to study) mixed with the elegant setting of the Kimmel Center.
