Classic Cescaphe Wedding | Michelle + Anthony

Beautiful views, elegant design and details, and a romantic setting are just a few of the highlights from Michelle and Anthony’s classic Cescaphe wedding. Michelle readied with her bridesmaids at the luxurious W Hotel in downtown Philadelphia, sipping a glass of champagne. The bridesmaids’ dusty pink dresses looked stunning with their white flower wedding bouquets with a pop of pale pink. Then there was Michelle who looked gorgeous in her lace detailed wedding dress and cathedral-length veil. Their adorable dog, Charlie, was also a part of the celebration, looking dapper in his own doggy tux. 

Before the ceremony, the couple shared a first look outside on the gorgeous deck of the hotel. Afterwards, we headed to the Rodin Museum to capture their timeless wedding portraits. The influence of French and European architecture, the artistic energy, and tranquil outside garden all combined to create the perfect spot for wedding portraits, reflecting their vision of a classic, chic wedding day.  

Classic Cescaphe Wedding

The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Cescaphe’s venue, Franklin’s View, which features a garden-chic, contemporary design, and a romantic atmosphere. I loved the ivy backdrop and beautiful flowers surrounding the couple at the ceremony, but my favorite aspect was the greenery on the ceiling covered with long white, flowing dangling down. It was enchanting. The couple exited as husband and wife and everyone celebrated the evening away. 

Michelle and Anthony are such a sweet couple. It seems as though fate brought them together. As they met online and planned their first date. A couple days prior to their date, Michelle was walking Charlie and ran into another girl, Sarah, and her dog. They chatted for a while and connected over their dogs. Little did Michelle know, it was actually Anthony’s sister-in-law! When Anthony went over to his brother’s house for dinner, Sarah told Anthony about this girl she met walking their dog, and how they would be a perfect match. 

It didn’t take long on their first date to realize that Michelle was actually the mystery girl his sister-in-law wanted to set him up with! Anthony and Michelle are absolutely meant to be and it was such an honor to capture their wedding day and share in their joy! Congratulations, to you both!
