Philadelphia’s skyline was the backdrop for Cara & Zach’s chic urban wedding at the Circa Centre Atrium at JG Domestic last month.
From the photographer: Cara and Zach’s relationship has been nothing short of a fairytale. Their peacock inspired wedding at the Cira Centre Atrium at JG Domestic perfectly captured their love story. Zach has a love of animals and describes Cara as someone who likes to “live her life out loud,” so the tactful inclusion of peacock feathers naturally made sense. After meeting in pre-school based on the premise of both being twins; and then losing touch shortly after, they were both happy to reconnect after college and pick up where they left off. They invited their guests by sending teal, grey and white invitations, inclusive of a touch of Philly theme. The inside of the envelope included a sketched view of the Philly skyline, which is representative of the view that Cara and Zach see from their new house in Philly.
From the bride: To personalize our wedding, we had a donut wall, hand made coasters as a giveaway, dad playing sax as part of his speech and Philly pretzels. Zach also arranged ahead of time with the band to perform an old school hip hop song on stage at the end of the wedding. I got married in my grandmother’s wedding ring, in her memory as she had passed away.
