Jay knew that Chelsea was the one for him after their first date. And it didn’t take Chelsea long to realize that Jay was the guy for her. After almost not getting to propose because of a snow storm, Chelsea and Jay got engaged just in time for Thanksgiving. From a first look with their dads to photos at some of their favorite places in Philly, Chelsea and Jay’s wedding day was laced with meaningful details.
Chelsea and her bridesmaids, along with her six adorable flower girls spent the morning getting ready at Hotel Monaco. After getting into her delicately beaded BHLDN gown, Chelsea’s dad drove her to their home to meet Jay and his father for their first look. They stopped at one of their favorite Philly bars, Separatist Beer Project, and Race St Pier for a few photos before their ceremony at Punch Line Philly.
Guests sipped on champagne as they watched Chelsea and Jay exchange their vows underneath a gorgeous arch designed by Beautiful Bloom Events. A long time friend officiated the ceremony, while another family friend provided the music. It was a heartfelt and sentimental ceremony that truly captured the beauty of their love.
The reception featured an all vegan menu created by Brulee Catering and a delicious chocolate peanut butter cake from Crust Vegan Bakery. Slippery Band kept guests on the dance floor all night long and Chelsea and Jay got on stage to sing “Don’t Stop Believing.” They ended the evening by sending everyone home with a Philly pretzel.
Chelsea and Jay, it was an honor to serve as your day of wedding coordinator. I hope the beautiful photos captured for you by Hailey Photography remind you of how much fun you had on your first day as Mr. and Mrs!
