Philadelphia Wedding with a Truly Unique Venue
Filiz and TJ fell in love with their wedding venue as soon as they stepped foot inside, and we fell in love the moment we saw what they did with the space. Maria Mack Photography photographed the couple all the beautiful decor, which was purposefully kept simple in order to complement the eclecticism of the venue. Of course, this didn’t stop Eventricity from rocking the floral design!
From the bride, Filiz: In the beginning, we were really interested in a warehouse/industrial space to make our own. However, we stumbled upon Material Culture and it just spoke to us! It had the warehouse feeling, totally unique, we loved all the vintage and imported good throughout the store, plus at was a nod to my Turkish heritage (my mom was born in Istanbul). We loved it from the moment we stepped foot inside.
As we started envisioning the look overall, we strived to keep everything simple to offset the bold colors and patters in the venue. I stuck to a color palette of whites, greens (meaning both the color and foliage), and soft pink, with brass/gold metals.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Make sure to wear really comfortable shoes! Extend the fun! We had a “Hangover Hangout” for anyone in town the next day which was a day in Fairmount Park with a food truck, leftover beer from the wedding, lawn games, and pets & kids! It was an extra opportunity to visit with loved ones, look at pictures and chat about all the fun of the night before.
