Nikki & Zack's Philadelphia wedding at TRUST

• Posted by Matt •

We got an early start to wedding season this year with a February wedding at TRUST in Olde City Philadelphia. A special thanks goes out to Regina Rahill of Origin Photo and Melissa Kelly of Melissa Kelly Photography, who stepped in to help while Natalie was on maternity leave.

Nikki and Zack's big day was the embodiment of simple elegance. I know people say that about a lot of weddings, but I feel like that really rang true with their formal color scheme of black and white and their decision to hold the ceremony and reception in one place. Keeping the entire event in one location allowed them to weave in details to really unify the whole event, like black feathers in a bouquet of white roses and then two more black feathers serving as topper on a white cake. Add in their laid back nature, and it really made for a fun evening.

Trust's multiple floors were extremely accommodating, allowing for the ceremony to take place in the gallery space downstairs while the second floor served as the main dining area. A cool little extra in having the multi-floor setup was that the second floor had a big balcony overlooking the first floor, so when the first dance and the parent dances took place people could watch from above.

The best part, though, may just have been all the little nooks and crannies that served for a great backdrop for bridal portraits! Our main plan going into the evening was to use the third floor for the bride and groom portraits so we could be away from the main crowd. We knew that the third floor was unfinished, but when a few snags popped up that could have really could have been a problem, Nikki and Zack just rolled with it and really let us be creative.

Nikki and Zack, thanks so much for including us in your big day! You really know how to put together a classy event.
