I’m a pretty lucky gal. I have had the great fortune of meeting and becoming friends with some female powerhouses in my life. They surely stretch to many aspects of my life, but most recently two have touched my life in a very special way.
On October 3, 2015, I got married. And lest he forget, marrying my husband, was the best part of that day. However, a wedding is essentially hosting a large scale party, right? And parties mean minding the details. And I definitely got involved in the details because, well, I enjoy the details. Admittedly I DIY-ed the crap out of our wedding with great pleasure, however, there were two things that were very important to me that I wanted to rely on some those female powerhouses I was talking about: for bridal party bouquets and photography.
If you live in the Philadelphia area, I would seriously recommend using these two gems for your future event planning.
Falls Flowers: 3421 Conrad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19129
Peicha Chang is the owner of Falls Flowers, and I have had the fortune of knowing her since college. Just looking at her creations on her website or on Instagram, makes me stop and literally forget all of my complaints with whatever is going on in my daily life (which are generally never worthy of complaining about). I showed Peicha a few pictures I had for inspiration, and she transformed my concept into a wonderful reality. When I saw the bouquets she created for our wedding day, I figuratively died with pleasure. And you should see her flower shop. Seriously stop in if you are ever in the city.
Janine Fenney, is an up-and-coming wedding photographer based in the Philadelphia area who focuses on a photo-journalistic approach to her wedding photography. This is something that we particularly loved about her portfolio as it meant that would have a lot of candid pictures to look back on. Both my husband and I felt like we were reliving every minute of our special day when we looked through our pictures and that was because she captured all of those unique candid moments. She also got us in and out of formal pictures quickly and with ease which we LOVED.
All-in-all, when you are doing most of the planning by yourself, and you need that extra support to get you to through to the end game, these two surely made this gal one happy bride!!!
I am hopeful that they will do the same for any other potential bride out there!
