Ali and Matt were married November 16, 2019 at Moulin at Sherman Mills.

From the beginning of the day at The Logan Hotel, it was very obvious why Ali and Matt get along so well. Ali’s sweet, caring personality is a perfect complement to Matt’s happy-go-lucky, confident style. Ali and Matt's friends and family were aglow with energy as the beloved couple prepared to tie the knot. 

The locations of the wedding day were almost as iconic as the couple’s collective energy. The Logan Hotel, where preparations took place, is located in Philadelphia’s buzzing epicenter. Ali's dress was a fresh take on a classic, elegant style. Her father's reaction was understated, but behind his eyes you could tell a lifetime of memories was ever-present. 

Ali and Matt took part in a photo shoot at the Barnes Foundation, a highly-prized photo location with some stunning architecture. Tyler Boye Photography is the consummate expert, being that he can turn any environment into magazine-cover level of beauty and attitude. Always a pleasure to work with Tyler!

Ali and Matt’s ceremony and reception took place at Moulin at Sherman Mills. This spacious venue is located just outside of Philadelphia, allowing guests of all ages to spread out and relax. The bride and groom loved that their location was highly accessible yet slightly secluded. With plenty of parking, multiple adjoining rooms, and an elegant exterior, Moulin is a great place to bring your own style to an event. 

For their ceremony, Ali and Matt had candles set up all the way around the room. The spot lighting was very carefully positioned on the center of attention: the lovely chuppah covered in greenery. Robertson's Flowers supplied the freshest of accoutrements to deck out the space. Bride and groom pledged their lives to each other among parents, under the ceremonial shelter. The aura of the room was otherworldly and magical, but also lighthearted thanks to the heartfelt and funny moments in the bride and groom's personal vows. 

One of our favorite parts of the day (that guests may not even realize) was Lauren James Events. When a wedding coordinator is doing their job well, the bride, groom, and guests will not be sure if they did anything at all. Keeping things running smoothly is a specialty of Lauren James events, and they excel at making sure everything happens on time and with all the right pieces in place. We never worry when Lauren James is on the scene.

Through the rest of the night, Ali and Matt were free to celebrate with everyone they hold dear. Brulee Catering kept everyone refreshed and enjoying tasty bites. EBE Milan 77 was the band that led the dance floor in raucous dancing and rowdy singalongs (See if you can find Matt's shouted anthem in the trailer). With Moulin's open floor plan, the dance floor can stretch from wall to wall.

Best wishes to Ali and Matt in their new life together. Marriage is not always easy, but with the right person it's the most important relationship there is! We recommend getting married.

Betsey and Andrew were married on October 5, 2019 at the new Four Seasons Philadelphia!

Keep reading to see why you need to see the new Four Seasons at the Comcast Center in person!

Betsey and Andrew held their first look in the J.G. SkyHigh Lounge.

The lounge was a stunning backdrop for the lovely couple to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. With views stretching all the way out into the countryside, the relaxed lounge played host to Betsey and Andrew’s joyful reunion. Guests watched with anticipation as they suddenly became firsthand witnesses of the first couple to get married in this brand-new location.

As the day went on, Betsey and Andrew enjoyed spending their day in one of the most beautifully designed new venues in Phildelphia. From the guest rooms to the ballroom, shiny surfaces are everywhere at the new Four Seasons. The multiple balconies and observation decks have railings and walls constructed from clear materials, allowing a wide-angle view of the city and creating an elegant, luxury feel. This can be challenging for someone with a camera to avoid catching their own reflection, but when you have the right experience you can use the reflections to your advantage to create a dreamy, abstract feel. How did we do?

You are in the sky! The ballroom is closer to the ground, but the views from the enormous windows are awe-inspiring to say the least. Philly locals will recognize the views from the other skyscrapers in Center City, but the Four Seasons brings an all-new perspective. The city’s skyline is famous for constantly changing, and this moment has been highly anticipated by all fans of Philly architecture.

For photographer Sarah DiCicco, the new location was a welcome change of pace. As one of Philadelphia’s most highly prized photographers, Sarah has seen the city’s high-end wedding locations so many times she has lost count. It’s nice to try out something new!

All the features of the new Four Seasons have one thing in common: everything looks so clean and new! In the middle of a busy, bustling city, this hotel stands out for all the clean lines, bare surfaces, and smooth textures. Evantine Design showed why they’re Philadelphia’s premier event designer and coordinator. Evantine helped Betsey and Andrew bring out their own style into the ballroom with plenty of white roses, floating candles, and white fixtures. The chuppah was made of clear material, emphasizing the transparent, clean aesthetic. Each couple’s event will look slightly different, and the Four Seasons gives a beautiful canvas for personal style choices.

In their reception, Betsey and Andrew continued the celebration. From the first dance to the cake cutting, Betsey and Andrew were ready to enjoy having their friends and family all in one place. LA Starz Band was busy jazzing up the crowd with their infectious sounds. The Four Seasons catering staff ensured that the guests had all the drinks and food they wanted. Andrew even performed a song for Betsey, who watched lovingly as her new husband serenaded her.

Later in the evening, Betsey and Andrew stepped out onto the balcony for an intimate photo session. The dizzying view of the streets and buildings below played counterpoint to Betsey’s shimmering party dress. The evening ended back inside the Four Seasons with plenty of drinks, desserts, and dancing.
