For our Elegant Event Planning and Design team, working with Tiffany and Marshall on their Philadelphia wedding was incredible.


Smiling bride and groom very much in love


When couples use words like timeless, classic, and romantic, and their personal style includes exquisite details, you know the day will be magical.

How magical are Tiffany’s shoes, gown, and tiara? The bustier-style bodice with beaded embroidery is just spectacular. And, yes, Marshall has Tiffany’s name embroidered inside his jacket, over his heart!



Love, Love, Love

The couple was joined in marriage at a historical Philadelphia church. Tiffany smiled ear to ear as she was escorted down the aisle to ‘Canon in D’ by her father.

The intimate wedding ceremony included readings by family members and the lighting of a unity candle. It concluded with the newlyweds jumping the broom before making their way up the aisle to the beautiful “Gcina Impilo Yami.”

We Love Old City Philadelphia

Following the wedding ceremony, wedding guests made their way to the reception. They were greeted with Champagne and enjoyed the Cocktail Hour and a Half, allowing plenty of time for wedding portraits.

With Philadelphia’s Old City as the backdrop, Tiffany and Marshall’s wedding portraits are just incredible. They truly capture their love for each other and the people they’ve surrounded themselves with.

Timeless, Classic, and Romantic

The ballroom was set for a spectacular wedding reception filled with romance, elegance, and love. Tables were draped in soft cream-colored linen and filled with gold accents and lush floral designs.

No detail was overlooked, from gold charger plates with custom menu cards to gold script place cards. One of our favorite details was the couple’s table numbers. Each table number was created with photos and wedding dates of family and close friends.

Following a welcome by the bride’s parents, Tiffany and Marshall made their entrance. They took to the dance floor for their first dance to ‘At Last’ and ‘California Love.’

The evening continued with parent dances, a delicious multicourse dinner, and several touching toasts before the couple cut their show-stopping, five-tier, chandelier wedding cake. The detailing of this spectacular hanging wedding cake left guests speechless.

After Tiffany changed into a beautiful second gown, she and Marshall rejoined the party to “Mutupo” by Juntal carrying the flag of Zimbabwe. A nod to Marshall’s family. They were joined on the dancefloor by guests carrying flags and bright yellow feathers.
