We had such a great time at Lynn and John's Center City wedding last year!
Lynn and her 11 (yes, 11!) bridesmaids began their exciting day in the bridal suite of the Crystal Tea Room right in the heart of the city. It was the perfect venue for their music themed wedding. Lynn looked breathtaking in her strapless, beaded wedding gown, which was finished off with her "something blue" — blue flats! The royal blue bridesmaids dresses were a beautiful compliment to the primary color scheme that Lynn and John had picked. (Keeping with the music theme mentioned above, they even created their own wedding logo: red, yellow and blue overlapping records.)
While the girls got ready, the guys were having some fun of their own. John, a big Indiana Jones fan, got dressed in a full Indy getup, right down to the hat, black bowtie and red carnation! All dressed up, John and his lively groomsmen walked from South Street, where Blocktober Fest was happening, over to the church to meet Lynn. It was finally time to get married!
Lynn and John had their wedding ceremony at Saint John the Evangelist Church in Center City, under the beautiful arches and ornate white altar.
After the ceremony, the whole group teamed up for some bridal party portraits at City Hall. Along the way, they ran into an equality march, whose participants were quick to celebrate John and Lynn's love!
The reception at the Crystal Tea Room was definitely one to remember. Each of the tables were named with a different band name, and had music sheet centerpieces, keeping with the music wedding theme. Lynn's sister, also a music enthusiast and artist herself, wrote a special song for the newlyweds, surprising them with a video recording during her Maid of Honor speech. There was not a dry eye in the whole Crystal Tea Room!
We had so much fun with Lynn, John and their whole wedding party, and they definitely knew how to throw a great party!
