Caitlyn and Andrew

Philadelphia Traditional

Venue: The Crystal Tea Room

When you think of a Philadelphia traditional wedding, what comes to mind? There are plenty of luxury wedding venues in the US, and Philadelphia certainly has their fair share of them!

How do you plan a luxury wedding? First, find the perfect venue. For Caitlyn and Andrew, that meant a space large enough to hold their over 300 person guest count in Philadelphia.

Now, if you know anything about searching for wedding venues, you probably know that most places max out under the 300 mark. This means that your choices could be limited and that’s before considering if you even like the look of the places available.

Luckily, The Crystal Tea Room was the perfect match for our couple. They toured a handful of venues before coming back to this place for a second look. Quite often, couples will just know when they want into a venue that they have found “the one”…which is exactly what happened for these two.

A ceremony at Villanova followed by a reception at The Crystal Tea Room was on the books for Caitlyn and Andrew. For the next year and a half we planned out all of the other details. Caitlyn chose a classic Amsale wedding gown from the many sophisticated wedding dresses she was considering. Rounding out the Philadelphia traditional vibe, Andrew and his groomsmen wore black tuxedos, while the bridesmaids all matched in floor length navy dresses.

Then plan for photos was to take advantage of the beautiful city. After all, you can’t be Philadelphia traditional without wedding pictures near some major landmarks! The time between the end of the ceremony and beginning of cocktail hour was spent taking some of the best wedding pictures ever, which you can see in the gallery above!
