National Museum of American Jewish History by Asya Photography

There’s just so much to love about this Philly wedding by Asya Photography.  A lovely bride and groom who met at the Jersey shore {the BEST Jersey shore…south of Atlantic City, that is…}, perfectly mis-matched bridesmaids dresses {Emily’s friends will love her forever}, lush florals {Evantine Design totally killed it}, and a big family {22 people in the bridal party!! 250 guests!!} made Emily and Gabe’s day pretty much the best day ever.  The National Museum of American Jewish History – an absolutely stunning space with an even more significant meaning – set the perfect backdrop for this couple to celebrate their marriage, and celebrate they did – with one amazing party!




From Emily, the bride:

The ceremony and reception were both held at The National American Jewish History Museum. We chose the museum for its floor to ceiling windows, the beautiful architecture, the outdoor terrace and the views of Philadelphia and Independence Mall. It was very special to experience our wedding in a building that beautifully celebrates our american Jewish heritage.  Our wedding was formal/black tie, romantic, warm and organic. The colors of our wedding were champagne, gold, white, metallics, hint of purple and green in the flowers/succulents. The bridesmaids wore dresses in mismatched hues of champagne and metallics as well. We wanted our wedding to have a warm and natural feel to it and these colors completed our vision. Our family owns franchises of Dunkin Donuts in the Philadelphia area and since we did not have a cake, our end of the night give aways were donuts! Evantine created a phenomenal “donut wall” where donuts hung on pegs for our guests to enjoy a sweet treat and created a sign that said “the newlywed couple runs on dunkin”.  We both come from large extended families so we will always remember being surrounded by family and friends at our wedding. We had a large wedding of 250 guests, all family and close friends. The story that I (Emily) will be telling for years to come is that I had 11 bridesmaids and ALL 11 of them were family (ages ranging from 11-37 years old)- first cousins, sister and sister-in-laws.
