Modern + Bold Wedding Inspiration at PAFA

There's no better way to kick off this week than with a stunning styled shoot from Lovehaus Events at one of Philadelphia's most historic venues! With it's burnt red walls and intricate architecture, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts proved to be the perfect backdrop for a modern vintage wedding, complete with stunning floral design, antique books and warm, bold accents. The incredible stationery from one of our favorites, House of Catherine, perfectly complimented the color palette, while introducing a whimsical element with watercolor calligraphy.

Located in the heart of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts is dripping in artwork with gilded details to welcome guests. This unique space was opened in 1876 to display collections of historical art while gracefully integrating modern art into its portfolio. Philadelphia is filled with historical charm and we wanted our editorial to take inspiration from the style of the museum and its surroundings.

Thank you to all our vendors and models that made this come to life!
