Real Wedding: Dawn & Will

We had the pleasure to work with Dawn and Will this past year on the wedding stationery for their July 2014 wedding. With the wedding itself taking place on the beach, they had booked the Merion Tribute House for their wedding reception which would be held a week later. For their Save the Date, Dawn and Will wanted to use a photograph of themselves (or at least, their lower halves) to help spread the news...

Save the Date designed by Creative Director Francesca Staffieri

Trilogy Event Design Creative Director Francesca Staffieri designed the save the date using the font that would be used on their wedding invitation suite to give a hint of what was to come. She set the type so that it would appear as if the words were written across the bricks. 

For their wedding invitation suite, Dawn and Will wanted a rustic look and chose a PC-100 Kraft paper. For the design elements, they fell in love with one of Francesca's custom-designs: a wine-stained invitation suite.

The look of the paper and the wine stains were exactly what Dawn and Will had been envisioning for their stationery, with a reply card and business card sized wedding website card completing the suite.

We had a fantastic time working with Dawn and Will and wish them both all of the best on their new life together!

The 2014 Knot Market Mixer

With all of the weddings, birthdays, and other social events we have been planning the first half of 2014, we were also excited to help The Knot Magazine plan, design, and coordinate their annual Market Mixer held at Moulin at Sherman Mills this past June. (All photos by the tremendously talented Todd Zimmerman, owner of Pictures by Todd Photography).

The event was entitled "Jour et Nuit a Moulin (Day and Night at Moulin)" with the breathtaking venue by Brûlée Catering divided into a day and night side. As guests arrived, they were taken along a beautiful garden path designed by Elite Florals.

Guests then had the choice of checking out two sides to the venue: the brightly colored day-side, or the sexy, lounge night side,

Of course, one of the big hits on the day side was the deliciously crafted cakes and desserts by The Master's Baker. From the orange creme in a chocolate cup —

... The Master's Baker truly helped us rock Philly that evening! And, as Pictures by Todd photographed the highlights of the evening, husband and wife dynamic duo Al and Cathie Berrey-Green of BG Productions filmed the event (short film at the end of the blog).

While the dulcet tones by Shaw Strings played to guests as they checked in, Silver Sound Entertainment kept the guests moving inside Moulin.

So many great professionals helped us bring the evening together including a great open air Photo Booth by Party Cam, the yummy cotton candy by Sweetistry, and the final details on the ribbon provided by Party Favors Ink.

The Knot Rocks Philly with Trilogy Event Design: The Master's Baker

West Chester, PA based uber-bakery The Master's Baker not only makes some of the tastiest cakes and desserts in the area, but their attention to detail and design easily rivals anything you may have seen on TV. So when it came time to select the baker for last week's Knot Magazine Market Mixer, The Master's Baker was the first name on everyone's lips.

We spoke with Chad Weldon, General Manager of The Master's Baker, and discussed our vision for a Day & Night themed event, with their cakes and dessert being an integral part of the Day side. Chad took all the information back to the bakery which then created a magnificent assortment of pastries and cakes.

To anyone who attended the event, The Master's Baker was the talk of the night with everyone enjoying their carefully crafted and yummy desserts!

Thanks to The Master's Baker for all their hard work in helping The Knot Rock Philly!

The Knot Rocks Philly with Trilogy Event Design: Party Cam

The Knot Magazine rocked Philadelphia on Thursday, June 26th at Moulin at Sherman Mills with an advertiser's party coordinated and designed by Trilogy Event Design. As with any good party, choosing entertainment options for your guests can be as important as selecting the menu. Fortunately, Party Cam, an open air Photo Booth company, was on-hand to provide our guests with a fun way to take crazy pics using all manner of props.

The open air photo booth is becoming a popular option for weddings and events allowing more people to get in the frame with other exciting features. Besides the instant gratification of having a photo strip print out, the iPad screens set up as you exit the "booth" allow you to become even more sociable by sharing images to your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

We had a fabulous time putting together The Knot Magazine's market mixer, and the open air by Party Cam was a fabulous way to capture the spirit of the evening. 

Stay tuned for more spotlights on the vendors who assisted us with this event, as well professional photos of the night and the unveiling of the theme chosen in the next week.

The Knot Rocks Philly with Trilogy Event Design: BG Productions

Not hiring a fantastic videographer may be couples' #1 regret when they look back at their wedding day, but it was not going to be a regret that Trilogy Event Design was going to have when planning this year's Knot Magazine Market Mixer. Finding the right person who shared our vision and energy, as well as having the talent to showcase the best of what this night was going to offer was high on our priorities. And, having worked with the dynamic husband and wife duo Al and Cathie Berrey-Green of BG Productions many times previously, we knew we had to have them there capturing the evening with their usual creative flair.

Every video that Al Green shoots is lovingly edited and crafted into a short-film that always wows the couples and clients that work with them. While Cat and Al take their art seriously, their uniqueness, enthusiasm, and creativity shines through with each frame.

We're thrilled to be working with this great couple once again, and can't wait to share the film from the evening soon!

In our initial discussions with The Knot Magazine, we talked about our plans for the overall look of this week's event, as well as the all of the details we were looking to design. When the conversation turned to whom we should approach to photograph this year's event, everyone on the call kept coming back to one name: Todd Zimmerman.

Anyone that has ever met Todd knows him as a mega-talented, enthusiastic, and absolutely hysterical photographer who has won the hearts of his clients — and his colleagues! — time and again. So, when it came to deciding on the photographer for this year's Knot Market Mixer, we knew we needed someone with the talent, vision, energy, and attention to detail that Pictures by Todd Photography owner Todd Zimmerman has.

The Knot Magazine Market Mixer is only a few days away, and after it's over and the last guest has left Moulin, we'll be surely looking toward our inbox everyday for when Pictures by Todd will be coming our way.
