One of my favorite displays at Longwood Gardens is the Orchid Extravaganza. The orchid display is one of the first plant collections that came to Longwood Gardens. A variety of orchids are display on a towering 12-foot-tall archway of Longwood Gardens entrance. It is one of the most amazing floral displays created.

I was thrilled to photograph a bridal editorial at Longwood Gardens featuring Sweet Caroline’s  styles. Her pieces are one of a kind and perfect for a bride wanting her own style. Her pieces include an array of timeless separates that can be mixed and matched for the perfect wedding day look. Each piece is designed and handcrafted at Caroline’s studio. Sweet Caroline separates are for the individualist who is looking to tell her love story.

I was thrilled when Arielle from Arielle Fera events asked me to join her and participate in Crate and Barrels’ wedding registry event! Private Registry Events occur monthly at Crate stores around the country. Couples are welcomed in 2 hours prior to store opening on a Sunday morning and have the store to themselves to register, get insider tips from our registry expert associates and engage with product demonstrations. Participating vendors are hand selected by the Crate and Barrel team based on rigorous criteria. Arielle put together a fabulous team of Philadelphia vendors to showcase this event.
