When you combine a couple in love, the best coffee, and a ridiculously beautiful venue, you get the perfect coffee shop wedding!
When I first met with Jessica, I instantly felt connected to her and Jaime’s love story. I fell in love with the way she talked about her fiance – her eyes lit up every time she said his name. Ten minutes into our consult, I knew I was in wedding planner heaven – this was a dream couple!! Once she told me she wanted to have her wedding at La Colombe in Fishtown, PA, it took everything in me not to squeal like a little girl.
La Colombe is stunning – you walk into high industrial ceilings, exposed brick walls, a gorgeous graffiti wall, and somehow it maintains the charm of a small coffee shop – even though it’s 11,000 sq feet. When you walk to the back of the space, you’ll find a distillery lining the walls through large glass windows. An industrial rustic wall filled with cut wood and branded wine barrels made the perfect backdrop for Jessica and Jaime’s head table.
This was the first wedding reception ever at La Colombe’s Fishtown location. It was such an honor to work alongside the La Colombe team! Contagious excitement filled the room as we were preparing for the arrival of 100+ guests with the bride and groom. As the guests started to arrive, they were offered various coffees and lattes. Jessica and Jaime’s favorite playlist provided ambiance as everyone enjoyed the fantastic food prepared by the incredible La Colombe chefs. During their first dance, Jessica and Jaime danced under the La Colombe sign surrounded by beloved friends and family. The night was just magical, and filled with special details of the couple, head over heels in love.
My personal favorite touch was the cake table. Jaime calls Jessica his “bunny”, and Jessica calls Jaime her “bear”; these were represented by miniature bear and bunny figurines surrounding the cake. The cake, curated by @cakelife was breathtaking, and topped with their signature “The Best is Yet to Come” – a promise that certainly rings true for this couple!
