Stephen + Alyssa's Wedding from Alison Dunn Photography is a perfect example of truly sweet, garden-inspired hometown affair. Touches of lace, letterpress invitations, stunning florals (from an urban flower farm!) and nods to their love of Philadelphia made their day perfect and personal. The sweetest part though, has to be that Alyssa's grandfather sang their first dance song... it doesn't any get cuter than that.
From Alison: Stephen & Alyssa met at the University of Pennsylvania, where they fell in love with the city of brotherly love! They wanted to reflect their affection for Philly to their out-of-town wedding guests, and I think they did such a lovely job of it! Their letterpressed invitations included a map of the city, highlighting significant locations to their relationship, while their cake topper borrowed from Philly's iconic LOVE statue. They were married in a beautiful Center City church, took portraits in Rittenhouse Square and in iconic Old City, and celebrated with friends and family at The View, which allowed guests a beautiful view of Philly's skyline at sunset. Stephen and Alyssa also opted to use Chicory Florals, a Philly-local urban flower farm that grows its flowers in once-abandoned Philly lots. Using their flowers, Alyssa designed and handcrafted her own centerpieces!
