One military couple recites their wedding vows at the second-oldest church in the country—followed by a sword tunnel recessional.

An eclectic color palette of gold, orange, peach and purple spoke to the bride, she says. "It hit me that I love everything gold, and that would fit perfectly with the elegant wedding I wanted," Francesca says of the couple's September affair, held in Philadelphia. "Orange is my favorite color, so I chose orange, peach and deep purple for the accent colors." Invitations by JWD Paperie were white and gold. Photo: Rachel Pearlman Photography
