Katherine + Andrew – Hotel Monaco Philadelphia – Old St. Mary’s – Philadelphia Wedding And Event Planner – Angela MALICKI Events

With this cold weather hitting us, it’s nice to look back on the weddings we had the opportunity to work on this past summer. It was a beautiful June day when the lovely couple Katherine and Andrew became husband and wife. The couple, along with the bridal party, started at Hotel Monaco in Old City getting ready for their special day. Everybody looked amazing and filled the day with celebration and happiness for the newly weds. Katie’s Romana Kreveza gown fit her beautifully and matched perfectly with the bridesmaids short lavender dresses.

As Katie and her bridesmaids were finishing up getting ready with Eric, I was over with Andrew and the groomesmen pinning boutineers for my first time ( successfully did not poke anybody)! The groomesmen and I arrived first at Old St. Mary’s Church with transportation provided by King’s Limo. With the guests settled and bridal party all lined up, it was time to start the ceremony! Andrew stood at the alter with his groomesmen smilling ear to ear as he watched Katherine and her father walk slowly down the aisle – it was truly beautiful!

After the ceremony, the couple and bridal party headed to Washington Sqaure Park for pictures with Joe Foley Photography. The rest of the guests headed over to the Stratus Lounge at Hotel Monaco for a cocktail hour to enjoy delicious appetizers and refreshments while looking over Philadelphia on a rooftop. CTO Artists provided the guests with a beautiful string arrangement to help set the mood. I went with the couple and Joe Foley Photography to City Hall for some finals shots as the bridal party joined the rest of the guests. Everybody passing by the newly weds shouted a “Congratulations!” making the day even more merry.

The ballroom turned out looking absolutely breathtaking with the help of Angela and Hotel Monaco. The color theme consisted of a light purple, ivory, and black. A Modern Touch florist provided the center pieces with white and pink roses along with purple peonies – they really brought the room together! Ciao Bella Cakes made a delicious five tier cake that had flowers which matched the center pieces. At the end of dinner, each table was given a tray of delectable italian cookies from the brides mother Gabbie. Outside of the ballroom had a table set up with family photos for guests to view as they walked into the reception area.

The couple really pumped up the party when they entered the reception to the song Bring Em Out by TI! DJ Bizz kept the dance floor moving and grooving all night long. Katie slipped on her custom Tom’s for some fun dancing. It was such a pleasure to see the newly weds so happy and celebrating with their loved ones!

Hair trends for the “bride” to be – Beautiful Bride’s Philly – Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI events

Ladies are you looking for that perfect, trendy hairstyle for your wedding day? Than look no further! Dana Perisa, owner and her assistant Maggie Armstrong of Beautiful Brides Philly tells all! Take a look at our Q & A! Dana and her team are mobile hair and make up artists that come to you for any special event. BBP work speaks for itself, Dana and her team are professional, on trend and will make you feel like a princess. We recently worked with them on a event for Wish Upon a Wedding (a non profit organization) for Kelly and Michelle

Q: What are brides asking for?

A: Brides are asking for pretty much everything! We see a wide range of styles based on the brides personality. However, we do see a lot of half up half down styles and up-dos that incorporate braids and a lot of texture.

Q: Are classic hairstyles coming back?

A: A popular trend is to take a classic bridal hairstyle, and add a twist to it. Overall, brides are leaning towards a much more casual and easy-going look, rather then the “over done” – so that may mean instead of the slicked back look, pulling a few pieces of hair to frame the face.

Q: Do you see more up do’s or long curls? Or other?

A: It’s split evenly between the down-do and the up-do — it really depends greatly on the bride.

Q: What are mothers of the bride and groom asking for?

A: They usually gravitate towards a simple, but elegant blow out, or a classic hairstyle such as a french twist. There is no need to mess with what works!

Q: What hairstyle tends to go with certain types of dresses? (i.e. mermaid dresses look nice with long flowing hair)

A: The brides gown will reflect her personality, which will in turn reflect what kind of style she wants for her wedding day. If someone has chosen a big, Cinderella inspired dress, then her hair will probably reflect that drama and elegance. A bride who opts for a more casual, shift inspired frock, may go for a more casual down-do full of loose curls.

Q: Are headbands and pearls used in the hair frequently?

A: Headbands are a new addition to the already dizzying array of hair accessories that a bride can choose from, but we do see them. Sometimes, after the ceremony is over, the bride may opt to change out of her veil and into a more casual hair accessory.  Pearls are classic, so for a bride that has opted for a more traditional look may want to add a few pins with pearl to their ‘do.

Q: What is the most common hairstyle that you’ve done?

A: A common style we see is when the hair is gently pulled back to the crown of the head, curled, and pinned to create a mound of curls that is both flattering, and appropriate for aspecial occasion. Often we also see brides and bridal attendant request a half up half down look with romantic curls.

Q: Which celebrity hair style do brides want?

A: We see a lot of images of Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lawerence and Carrie Underwood.

Q: What can be done if any of the bridal parties hair do’s come undone?  

A: The hair styles we do never come undone! But in the rare case that they do, our stylists always leave some bobby pins and often recommend the bride have easy access to a can of hair spray. The bridal party member in question can opt for two options — pinning the curls back in place, or completely disassembling the updo and transforming it into an elegant down-do.

Q: What is your favorite hair do?

A: We love a classic, vintage inspired up-do. Something with some volume and structure, ala Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn.

My top five trend picks:  1. The long mermaid hair look. 2. A fish tail braid pulled to either side of the shoulder with a flower headband. 3. Hair french braided too back of head, ending in a flower.

The Knot Party, Cocktails & Connections – Philadelphia Wedding and Event Planner – Angela MALICKI events

I love the vibrant colors!

Tis the season for event professionals! We were thrilled and honored to plan the annual The Knot/The Bump Party-Cocktails and Connections Party! We joined the many Philadelphia and South Jersey event professionals this year at the sheek and fabulous venue, Front & Palmer, located in the up and coming South Kensington! This annual event was formed to simply say…Thank You!

Fabulous and Chic!

When we were asked to plan this event back in January, we knew that we had no time to waste! Our team was so excited and ready to take on this fantastic event. Our vision for the event was urban chic since the location is a bit industrial. In that case, we really wanted to bring out some bling! We decided to go with the colors of the season, tangerine and teal, to give the space a splash of some vibrant colors!  We also added fabulous sleek lounge furniture to give the venue a fun, yet relaxing feel! Transforming spaces is something we really love to do and take pride in doing so. Front & Palmer has an old city feel and we really wanted to jazz it up with some amazing decor!

When guests entered the lobby, a beautiful display provided by Robertson’s Flowers welcomed everyone along with our letterpress programs which were handed out to the guests!

The guests were greeted by our fabulous team Ashley and Eric!

Signature cocktails!

The chic event was filled with delicious food, classy cocktails, event professionals, and most importantly fabulous vendors. Front & Palmer was the most ideal spot for this wonderful party with the stylish loft that featured fresh beats by DJ Bizz of CTO Artists. The loft also included mouth watering food by Feast Your Eyes Catering which guests truly enjoyed. Guests also relaxed in the lounge where heavenly desserts were baked by Feast Your Eyes Catering and Ciao Bella Cakes. There were so many amazing moments of this party that no one will forget! One moment of the night most will truly remember was the photo booth! Compliments of Shutterbooth, they provided us with a fun photobooth for all of our guests to enjoy! Signature cocktails, served by St. Germain, were also enjoyed by guests along with fabulous finger foods and delicious desserts! Each detail of this event was captured by the talented and amazing Sweetwater Portraits by Julie Melton and documented by luxury filmmaker Damon Dietz, owner of Absolute Media Productions!

The colors were fabulous! Linens provided by Select Event Rentals!

Beautiful decor provided by Busybee Home Store & Design Center, On Q Productions, and Select Event Rentals!
