Sarah & David in Philadelphia, PA

A New York-based couple transforms a blank-slate venue into a jewel-toned backdrop for their sophisticated wedding.

Sarah and David, who live in Manhattan, chose to marry at the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal, located in the Navy Yard. "We wanted our wedding to feel very much like 'us,' so we looked for a raw space that we could completely transform," says Sarah.

She wore an Oscar de la Renta gown with a tulle skirt embellished with silk flowers, from Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier. David sported a custom-made white dinner jacket.
