I Do: Amy + Eriach | Bartram’s Garden, Philadelphia
“Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table…”
That’s one of my favorite lines from T.S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.” The poem was presented as favors at Amy and Eriach’s autumn wedding, which was filled with unforgettable DIY details.
Terrariums filled with mementos and cherished treasures, beautifully handwritten notes at every turn, heaps of books stamped and bound in twine. And flowers, so so many flowers.
As the oldest surviving botanic garden in the country, Bartram’s Garden has an amazing landscape that was complemented by the peach and sage floral designs of Sullivan Owen. The arbor made by Sullivan was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony, which was “unplugged” per the couple’s request.
Unplugged weddings can be a breath of fresh air because they allow guests to turn off their devices and be truly present. As someone who spends the majority of my life plugged into my laptop or iPhone, I tend to think there are certain fleeting moments that are better unplugged.
Amy and Eriach’s wedding was full of those fleeting moments. Like seeing Eriach’s reaction to Amy walking down the aisle. So powerful.
Also, these guys had some killer dance moves that couldn’t be missed.
Congrats again to the happy couple ♥
Thanks to my husband Pete for joining me in photographing this heartfelt day.
