Modern Garden Wedding at the Cira Center • Emily Wren Weddings


Well friends, you should go grab your coffee and plan to stay awhile... this Philadelphia wedding from Emily Wren is that good. When you combine some of Philly's best wedding vendors, a stunning venue, perfect weather and a bride and groom who could pass for models, you get one of the most stylish weddings we've seen yet. 

From Emily: Jana & Peter were married at the Cira Center in Philadelphia on Labor Day Weekend. With it's rustic interior and modern facade, The Cira Center was a beautiful backdrop for this urban garden wedding. To celebrate the end of summer, Oleander Floral Design created an incredible bridal bouquet and decorated the Cira Center like a lush garden, with garlands full of greenery and a variety of white blooms. If you look close, you'll notice little hints from the garden such as mint, peppers, and rosemary! The chuppa was covered in greenery as well, giving it a natural and earthy feel. Jana looked effortlessly elegant in her Theia gown, from BHLDN. Her long golden locks, styled by True Beauty Marks, fell sweetly at her shoulders. I took advantage of the close proximity to Philadelphia's historic 30th Street Station to take some portraits of the bridal party. The art deco architecture and massive windows made for some uniquely beautiful moment. And how nice of the station manager to wish Jana & Peter a happy wedding over the loudspeaker!
