Paola and Austin’s cozy winter wedding oozed warmth and holiday cheer in Philadelphia. The couple celebrated their wedding at The Ballroom at Westside with a sweet celebration.
Paola’s bridal style was perfect for the season and the venue. The clean lines of the dress kept things simple, comfortable, and effortless for an intimate celebration. The beaded detailing evoked the feeling of snow flurries— a lovely sartorial touch for a winter wedding. The look paired nicely with Austin’s classic black suit and tie.
Paola and Austin shared a sweet first look in front of the fireplace. We love that Austin’s natural reaction was to give Paola a twirl. First looks can be a great way to score some really beautiful candid moments, and it gives the couple a private moment to take each other in.
Paola and Austin worked with their Philadelphia wedding photographer to capture the exquisite details in the flowers and decorations. Both Paola’s bouquet and the centerpieces mirrored winter’s elements. We love the way she mixed pine with soft, white florals.
The couple was able to take advantage of the holiday decorations at The Ballroom at Westside. An added bonus for couples looking at a winter wedding is that a lot of venues are already decorated for the holidays, so it can be a budget-friendly way to get a well-decorated backdrop for your wedding photography.
The couple’s ceremony was intimate and cozy. The chevron wood altar, draped in pine and lights, provided a fresh feel while enhancing the warmth of the setting. The couple then celebrated the night away with family and friends. To top it all off, they sent everyone home with delicious wedding favors. In keeping with the day, each guest received something sweet. The couple bagged sweet treats into “Love is Sweet” bags, a touch we’re sure their guests adored.
