An Eclectic Earth Day Wedding at Reading Terminal Public Market in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Marrying on Earth Day meant an organic palette of blue, brown and green for Alexandria (Alex) Kragie (27 and a medical student) and Olamide Sanuth (31 and a scientist), who focused on incorporating DIY details and simple florals into their spring nuptials. Six months after they wed in a traditional Nigerian ceremony, the pair became Mr. and Mrs. once more when they exchanged vows against a one-of-a-kind backdrop made from hundreds of colorful paper cranes. “We had a no-fuss style,” Alex says of keeping their décor to a minimum in order to focus on memorable menu items, like savory, cheese-based appetizers and bites. “We picked the market because the venue’s catering team allowed us to serve a tasting menu of all of our favorite things.” To surprise their guests, the newlyweds performed a bachata dance to “Stand By Me” by Prince Royce, performed by a friend.
