Katie and Jeremy’s Wedding at The Merion


Details of the Day:
We decided on a traditional, elegant wedding. My bouquet was made up of succulents, orchids, hydrangeas, multiple different flowers. The elegant ballroom, garden and pool were key factors in helping us choose the location and made our reception gorgeous. Our colors were blue/gold/pastels we also had Ivory table cloths with black napkins.  Our first dance was Amazed by Lonestar.


The Venue: We went to a bridal expo in Philadelphia and fell in love with pictures of the Merion. It was the first venue me and my fiancé (now husband) went to together! We loved the outside garden and the size of the ballroom, the food options and everything they had to offer! On our wedding day the Merion surprised us with roses handed delivered by workers at the Merion! It was so sweet and thoughtful!

The Menu: Our menu included everything and anything!!! The Merion does an amazing job with their assortments of foods! Our cake was from Sunflower bakery and was a three layered vanilla cake with chocolate frosting. Our cake topper was my favorite! It was a Ceramic figurine of the bride and groom Wesson bride their bridal attire! The groom owns his own landscaping business so he is wearing a leaf blower on his back and his business hat! It’s Adorable.. it was purchased from etsy Barbara’s clay creations which I highly recommend!


The Gown: My dress was a champagne and ivory lace gown with a low back by Martina Liana purchased at the Bridal Garden in Cherry Hill. The lace and beading were all throughout the dress. It was the first gown I tried on! I fell in love with the back of the gown!

One Detail You Couldn’t Live Without: The favors! I loved them! Three chocolate covered pretzels with a white chocolate Oreo that says Mr. & Mrs. Miller.. purchased from Sweet Memories Chocolates in Philadelphia!
