Kulynn and Allen met online on what was to be a very special night for Allen: not only did he receive his first message from Kulynn, but he also hit his first home run in his men’s baseball league! They messaged back and forth for over a week, then had their first date at his favorite restaurant and their beautiful relationship grew from there. Before too long, wedding planning would be in full swing!
Kulynn and Allen’s wedding event all took place within the city of Philadelphia, where they started their day at Renaissance Philadelphia Downtown Hotel. Kulynn wore a pretty white floral robe as she got ready with her maid and matrons of honor and her mother by her side.
Meanwhile, Allen dressed into his classic black tuxedo with a striking white necktie, his groomsmen in contrasting black ties. Kulynn’s bridal party all wore exciting, sparkling gold dresses with mismatched necklines for this wonderful event, aside of course, from her adorable junior bridesmaid and flower girl who had special pretty dresses just for them.
Then, Kulynn dressed for her day, and what an amazing wedding gown she had! She wore a strapless, intricately beaded gown with a dramatic mermaid silhouette, a full, ruffled skirt billowing out just above her knee. In her relaxed updo, she wore a cathedral veil attached to the back of her hair for her ceremony and photos. She was such a beautiful bride!
The couple skipped a first look and headed straight to St. Augustine Church for their traditional Catholic wedding ceremony. The Mass was especially engaging and very personalized just for the couple. Father Joseph Gleason led Kulynn and Allen in reciting their vows, which proved to be a very emotional moment for the couple. At the conclusion, the couple shared a kiss and were pronounced, ‘husband and wife’!
Following the ceremony, photos were taken outside the First Bank of the United States and Carpenters’ Hall by the fabulous team at Anastasia Romanova Photography. We loved the classic poses they struck and had so much fun filming their sessions! Be sure to take a look at some of their terrific photos on their blog!
Kulynn and Allen’s reception at Cescaphe Ballroom had a decidedly Great Gatsby & Roaring Twenties vibe and it was gorgeous! Beautiful Blooms once again did a fantastic job adorning the venue with warm candlelight, gold accents, just the right amount of sparkle and amazing feathery décor that perfectly reflected their theme.
The couple of honor entered the ballroom with Cescaphe’s signature sparkler salute on display, and danced a beautifully choreographed first dance together. And who didn’t cry during those toasts? Kulynn’s maid and matrons of honor and Allen’s best man spoke such heartfelt and touching words expressing their love and support for Kulynn and Allen. Parent dances were equally touching to watch that evening.
Then, DiNardo Brothers Entertainment opened the dance floor to everyone and their music definitely didn’t disappoint! The guests danced the evening away, everyone having a ‘roaring’ good time!
Kulynn and Allen together planned such a fantastic, personalized wedding event, one that we won’t soon forget! They were so sweet to work with as well and we know their unbreakable love will last a lifetime. Congratulations to Kulynn and Allen!
