Allison and Scott’s wedding was very special. We started the day with Allison and her bridesmaids getting ready at Sofitel in Philadelphia, then did some portraits of Allison and Scott and their bridal party and families around Rittenhouse Square and headed over to their beautiful venue, Stotesbury Mansion. Their intimate ceremony was followed by a cocktail-style reception with some amazing food and dancing, as well as some cigars and pool.
A few words from Allison and Scott about how the envisioned their wedding: “When we started planning our wedding, the first thing we did was book the venue. Stotesbury Mansion was definitely not what we were originally looking for (we were originally thinking of getting something more modern, like a loft space and DIY-ing more decor), but when we saw it we knew it was something special. The whole style and feel of the wedding really took shape around the mansion. We wanted to let the space speak for itself and design everything to compliment it. Since we’re both designers, it was fun trying to fuse this ornate and classic elegance with our modern aesthetic when it came to creating our invitations and the other little touches we put into the wedding. Since the venue mixes the old and new in its decor as well, it seemed like such a good fit!
