Tierney & Efi’s Beautiful Spring Wedding at Philadelphia’s Horticulture Center

Tierney and Efi originally met in Boston through mutual friends but jobs in the editorial industry led them to venture together everywhere from Seattle to their current home in NYC. The two were together for 7 years when they decided to tie the knot.

Both laid-back friends, Tierney and Efi chose a down-to-earth (and I mean that quite literally) wedding venue, which they decorated with tons of adorable DIY details. Held in the beautiful Horticulture Center in Philadelphia, the setting for their wedding day seemed almost surreal. Gorgeous green plants filled the greenhouse interiors of the Horticulture Center, and just steps away outside, the area’s surrounding cherry blossom trees were nearing their peak. It was dreamy and a beautiful backdrop for their love.

Laughter and jokes were in abundance during both the couple portraits and bridal party photos, which made for a fun and lighthearted experience. 

An elegant and memorable excerpt from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (Love is a Temporary Madness) was read during the ceremony, as were the couple’s handwritten vows. 

This led into cocktail hour where guests were able to take-in all of the DIY details that Tierney and Efi helped to produce for the day. Adorable photos of the couple were strung along the guestbook on a table lined with roses. You’ll see Tierney and Efi dressed as Miss Piggy & Kermit the Frog in one of them, two figures that also topped the “naked”, lightly-frosted wedding cake.

The remainder of the day led into the best kind of unabashed dance party - the kind where all of the girls quickly kick off their heels and everyone starts moving. Tierney switched into a short cocktail dress and her and Efi broke it down.

All in all, a beautiful night and wedding day to capture.
