Vaux is a wonderfully refreshing option for a small wedding in Philadelphia. It has all the center city elegance and character and as soon as you step in you feel specail and celebrated! It is a modern and and affordable option for couples eloping or gather a imitate group of guests.
Can you believe Rebecca & Kris planned their entire wedding in just six weeks?! It is possible. This is one of the benefits of planning a smaller intimate wedding and keeping it simple and beautiful.
My advise to other couples is follow your vision and intuition for your wedding day. We planned our entire wedding in 6 weeks, which made decision-making easy because we had to think quickly. We didn’t have time to ask for a lot of opinions, so our day really belonged to us. Trust your gut and make your wedding a reflection of who you are as a couple and you can’t go wrong!
“To honor my Jewish heritage, we incorporated the traditional Ketubah signing ceremony. This was especially meaningful because Kristofer had the honor of wearing a tallit (prayer shawl) that belongs to 98-year-old Holocaust survivor Abe Zalcberg, the father of my boss and mentor Sarah Franco. We also decided to write our own vows and I am so glad we did it was a chance to share our promises in front of our friends and family.”
“Since we had a small number of guests, we wanted to incorporate them into the ceremony. We did this by having them participate in a “Ring Warming” ceremony in which the rings were passed around so that each guest could offer them a personal and private blessing or wish. By the time the rings got to us, they contained the warmth, energy and well wishes of all of our wedding guests!”
