Congratulations to Anna and Will! This October, they hosted a gorgeous and elegant wedding at the Philadelphia Free Library. It was absolutely stunning – full of the sweetest details, with lots of nods to the library itself throughout the day. Anna and Will wanted their celebration to be classic, elegant, and a beautiful celebration with those they love most. It turned out to be a stunning and intimate wedding day that I can’t wait for you to see.
Wedding Day at the Philadelphia Free Library
Anna and Will prepared for their wedding day offsite before meeting outside of the Rodin Museum for their first look. During their first look, Anna and Will exchanged their own private vows – it was absolutely perfect and such a sweet moment for them both! Seriously, Anna looked stunning in a classic wedding gown and Will’s traditional black tux looked so chic next to his (now) wife. After portraits at the Rodin, we walked to the library and headed up to the roof. I personally think that the Philadelphia Free Library has one of the best rooftop views of Philadelphia!
Philly PA Wedding Ceremony and Reception
Their ceremony was beautiful in the large lobby of the library. It was the perfect spot for their celebration, right in the heart of the building. With white flowers and candles throughout the space, Anna and Will brought a vibe of romance and elegance to the room. After they were married they had an adorable moment together quietly by the elevators while cocktail hour began. You could see the emotions of the day settling in.
Anna and Will’s wedding planner, Arielle Fera Events, did an amazing job of taking Anna’s vision for the day and creating the reception space. One of my favorite reception details is the library seating cards! They looked like the cards we used to use to sign out books. During the cocktail hour, they even had books stacked on the tables as decorations. Their reception tables were filled with sage green accents and white flowers, plus candles bringing more of that romantic low light into the library. The rest of Anna and Will’s wedding day was filled with the love of their family and friends. They had beautiful speeches by their friends and family and then danced the night away!
Congratulations again, Anna and Will! Your gorgeous Philadelphia Free Library wedding day was stunning and I am so happy we could document it for you to enjoy for years to come!
