Lori and Kevin’s wedding ceremony took place at Fairmont’s Eastern State Penitentiary! Some of America’s most infamous criminals were held at the Penitentiary while it was still open. In fact, in the picture of Lori’s beautiful gown, it is hanging near the cell that Al Capone was held in! Wow!!
The Philadelphia Inquirer was so interested in the space that they even published an article about Lori and Kevin’s wedding and KYW News Radio interviewed the bride to learn more about what they had in mind for a wedding taking place in a prison in the state of perpetual ruin.
Paper by Proud ran with the idea used the look of prison bars as the inspiration for the invitation and stationery design. Using a striped grosgrain ribbon belly band to close the pocket and a vellum overlay invitation atop one of their engagement photos, the result was modern, chic, and fun invitations!
The reception was at the Philadelphia College of Physicians, once home to the country’s oldest professional medical organization, now a beautiful and historic museum. Allebach Photography captured the historic beauty of both locations. Carl Alan Floral Design created stunning bouquets and corsages by contrasting bold red flowers with fun, white feathers! The reception was filled with great food from Catering By Designs and fun music and dancing thanks to Schaffer Sounds! Lori and Kevin’s special day was unique and unforgettable! Congrats!
