It was a perfect Spring day when Portia and Desmond held their wedding at Valley Green Inn in Wissahickon Valley Park. The babbling creek and the tree filled hills were a picturesque background for the wedding of this unique couple. Guests gathered out by the creek in front of the inn where the ceremony was held.inflatable rock stars combo

The flower girls worked together to make way for the bride. They were adorable!

The happy couple jumped with elation after they exchanged vows!

Not only could you feel the love between the couple, but their style was also undeniable. Des and Portia made for a dapper pair.

The bride wore a stunning strapless sweetheart nude and white lace gown and jeweled champagne pumps.

The groom wore a navy blue suit , bow tie, and cognac leather lace up shoes.

Portia’s bridesmaids wore peach dresses in different styles, which added a perfect pop to the surrounding greenery.Denmark

Green succulents and peach florals in mercury glasses added warmth throughout the reception site.

A vintage typewriter was placed by the guest book and guests were encouraged to type a message for the bride and groom.  We love the idea! It’s both functional and fashionable.

To kick off the reception festivities, the groom surprised the bride by serenading her with an original song. Des and his friends are so talented, and all the guests loved the surprise!

There were many small details that made this wedding so special. The bride and groom thought of everything. From family pictures around the inn to the photo booth to the serenade. It was a very special night and we are grateful that Portia and Des let us be a part of it!

Thanks to all the wedding professionals we were able to work with on the wedding: Emily Delamater Photography , Valley Green Inn, DJ Shawn Ryan, and Spike Greens Floral Design.
