As wonderful as wedding expos are, they can sometimes feel a tad overwhelming. So many vendors at so many rows of tables — how do you pick who to talk to?
That’s why we’re always pumped to hear about a wedding event where the vendor grouping has been curated ahead of time. If you’re looking to outfit your big day locally, and you want to do it with Pinterest-worthy style, look know further than L. Priori Jewelry’s annual Fall in Love event, happening this Sunday at the L. Priori showroom at 16th and Walnut. Read more »
Wedding stress is a real thing. After months of dealing with budget, difficult family members, and more logistics involving table linens than you ever will again in your life, how do you break the ice on the big day and start off on a light-hearted foot?
If you’re Jessica Albert, you surprise your groom, Mark Grassi, by donning a T-Rex costume for your first look. And on this Monday morning, we here at PW are grateful Stacy Salter Moore and JPG Photography were on hand to capture the hilarious event in the photos below. Read more »

We here at PW have seen lots of engagement shoots at Longwood Gardens, but Raynell Hicks and Ulrich Kossepa’s stylish shoot is the first we’ve come across that made us feel like we were looking at another location entirely. Check out the photos below by Renee Hollingshead Photography. Read more »
Mutual friends introduced Heather Rhoads and Timothy Lehman after Timothy saw a picture of her and requested a meeting. Sparks didn’t exactly fly at first — “I did not like him,” says Heather, while Timothy thought she was cute but wasn’t sure it would lead to anything — but they found more common ground over dinner at a steakhouse.

Mikey Ticzon and Brandon Ryan’s love story begins where many do: with mutual friends from college. Mikey’s roommate was dating Brandon’s best friend, and Brandon came to DC for a visit. The night they met, Mikey was supposed to go out dancing with another group of friends, but his roommate convinced him to at least join their group for dessert. Frozen yogurt turned into a movie and late night diner food. Mikey never made it to his original plans, but the next morning he saw a Facebook message from Brandon. Brandon told Mikey he was cute and had “a killer smile.” Mikey responded with his phone number. Read more »
Think a big wedding with months of pre-planning might not be for you? Chloe Terres and Jimmy Bereolos felt the same way. After getting engaged in May, they originally planned to marry in the spring of 2018. Instead, with the help of Clover Event Co., they turned their July engagement party at Fishtown’s La Colombe coffee shop into a surprise wedding. See photos from the day by Kelly Giarrocco and find out how they pulled it all off below. Read more »
While some (okay, one) of us are lucky enough to have Tim McGraw perform at our wedding, most of us are happy to have a practiced wedding band perform live renditions of our favorite songs. The perfect middle ground? Be friends with a musical act, invite them to your wedding as guests, then watch in surprise and delight as they join your wedding band onstage to personally perform their hits.
That exact scenario played out pretty spectacularly at a Rittenhouse Hotel wedding this past Saturday night. The Chainsmokers’ Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall were personal guests at the wedding, and Taggart jumped on stage to perform three of their biggest hits with EBE Events & Entertainment band L.A. Starz. EBE’s Jason Bookman tells us Taggart performed “Paris,” “Closer,” and “Something Just Like This,” and you can watch the “Paris” portion of the performance in the video above. Props to the bride for not letting Taggart steal too much of the spotlight! Read more »
What happens when you combine a greenery-filled wedding venue with one of the hottest wedding trends of 2017? A whole lot of pretty.
