A Classic, Modern Wedding at Downtown Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

You wouldn’t expect to see pastels at a classic winter wedding but Karen Gibson (31 and an attorney) and Jake Heisler (35 and a financial advisor) did just that for their wedding at the Downtown Club in Philadelphia. The bridesmaids wore long muted plum dresses, Karen accessorized with a stole, the escort cards were accented with pinecones and even the invites were a wintry silver -- but all of the flowers were a pretty springtime-inspired pastel color. Karen and Jake’s unique color palette was perfect for their venue too, which they picked for its contemporary twists in the heart of Historic Philadelphia. "The venue is modern and sophisticated, and it has amazing views of Independence Park and other Old City landmarks," Karen says. And because the Downtown Club is owned by the foodie-renowned Cescaphe Event Group, there was an extensive variety of delicious food at the wedding. “There was too much food to name,” Karen says. Our favorite detail? Karen’s show-stopping fit-and-flare wedding dress with a dramatic skirt covered in fabric ruffles.
