An Urban Chic Wedding at Skybox Events Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Annamarie (Anna) Saracino (29 and a dietetics student) and Jim Fox (34 and a surveyor and guitar salesman) mixed metallic brass accents and rustic wood details to pull off an urban chic event at the Skybox Event Center in Philadelphia. “We’re not the most traditional couple, so we wanted something industrial yet polished,” Anna says. Lanterns and candles lined the way to the altar, where the couple exchanged Game of Thrones–inspired vows in front of a large wood pallet accented with an abundance of greenery and all-white blooms. For her walk down the aisle, Anna chose a beaded and bejeweled Hayley Paige design with an open-back and layers of organza with a geometric motif. “I didn’t want your typical wedding dress, so this dress was super unique and really fit my funky personality,” Anna says. Jim opted for a classic black suit and his signature black Vans sneakers. The pair dressed up their dining tables with brass candlesticks of alternating heights and flower-filled metallic vessels. Various lanterns, candles and bistro lights juxtaposed the venue’s existing high ceilings and raw, warehouse vibe. DIY details included custom save-the-dates, table numbers, bar signs and the escort card display, along with subtle, fox-themed accents as a nod to the couple’s new shared surname.
