Amanda + Frank, Part 2 – Hotel Monaco of Philadelphia, St. John the Evangelist Church, Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI events

Where do I begin with Frank and Amanda! 3 words – adorable, chic and amazing. This couple was referred to us by our past clients Natalie and Jose, who was married in 2009,we were excited to work with them on their Chic Philadelphia wedding at Hotel Monaco on Chestnut Street. We started our day in their bridal suite overlooking Independence Park. Amanda, perfect in every way, was ready to get things started. Her glam squad – no lie when I say that – had her looking like a runway model at New York Bridal Week. Her hair was to perfection and the dress, how do I begin to describe it. Amanda donned a fabulous Sottero-Midgley complete with matching lace cropped sleeve topper.

Frank was finishing up with his groomsmen on the other side of the hotel as Ashley pinned the boutineers . This day couldn’t go any smoother. We all headed to St. John the Evangelist on 13th in a Philadelphia staple – a white trolley. Guests were transported by a double-decker bus provided by the couple, what a great way to see our city.

The ceremony went as planned and guests including Frank were at awe when Amanda walked down the aisle. Ceremony complete, now ready for pictures in my beautiful city. Brittany-Lee and Rosetree Films documented their every move as they hit the town for pictures.

Details at the hotel Monaco

Keys were attached to each place card and lush flowers and lanterns completed the table

Ash and I started set up of the ballroom ensure all the details were perfect. We worked closely with the couple on many details including the lighting, event furniture (there  were 2 lounges in the ballroom), custom logo projected on the dance floor. The couple had a photobooth for guests to enjoy during the event and as a wedding favor, they created a CD with their favorite songs that guests could take home.

Guests entered through the lobby to find a beautiful lush floral display with their placecard (each one had a skeleton key tied with ribbon).

Vintage suitcase with old postcards

The couple had guests fill out old postcards as their sign in book and drop them in a suitcase . They were very clever with the details.

During cocktail hour, music playing in the background by CTO’s Karma Strings while guests enjoying yummy bites and the couples signature cocktail “The Stratus”.

We created this lounge space for guests to enjoy. White diamond leather couches by AFR. Trend alert- couple made signs with their wedding hash tag for guests to tag on Instagram.

The Lafayette Room was perfect, lighting to perfection (we worked closely with Eventions Productions), each table was double pin spotted and the room uplit in a light Rose’ hue.  Titus Print designed the couples logo which was projected on the dancefloor.

Eventions Productions did a great job with the lighting. Titus Print designed their logo with was projected on the dance floor.


Lush pink hued centerpieces

Anton’s flowers in Vineland did a fab job with the flowers. There were different height centerpieces. Each were placed in mercury glass vases. That tied in the platinum . All linens we ordered from party Rental.

The flowers were amazing, Anton’s Flowers, local to the brides town, worked closely with the couple on the centerpieces which were perfect with the Platinum and white linens we picked from Party Renal Ltd.

The couple surprised the guests with a choreographed dance to “One and Only” by Adele.  DJ Bizz of CTO kept the dancefloor packed all night and the crowd non stop.
