A Philadelphia micro-wedding


The Hill-Physick House is the perfect venue for a Philadelphia micro-wedding. It’s indeed an intimate historic house museum located at 321 S. 4th Street in the Society Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia. As a matter of fact, it was built in 1786. This square, four-story brick house is the only free-standing Federal townhouse remaining in Society Hill.  It is decorated with outstanding examples of French-influenced Neoclassic furnishings. The unusually large city garden also contains plants popular in the 19th century and the perfect space for a Philadelphia micro wedding.

First, our Bella Angel artists arrived bright and early at the Renaissance Philadelphia Downtown Hotel. We provided all the hair and makeup for Ana and her group. Ana had a trial prior to the wedding day so of course the artists knew exactly what they needed to do to complete her look. Ana chose a coiffed low chignon and soft, beautiful makeup for her Summer wedding. She certainly looked beautiful and Heidi Roland captured it all in these photos.

Ana looked so beautiful in her Martina Liana gown. Of course, her hair and makeup was on point as she walked to meet her handsome groom Zachary. After that, Ana and Zachary met for their first look at the 18th-century garden. This historic Intimate spot at Independence National Historical Park in Old City, Philadelphia is modeled after a 1700s English garden. It’s indeed the perfect place for wedding photos.

After the outdoor garden ceremony, Ana, Zachary and their party headed over to the beautiful tent outside of the Hill-Physick House. The tent was decorated so beautifully with accents of blush pinks and navy blue and twinkling string lights. Such a perfect place for a Philadelphia micro wedding.

Ana and Zachary had Danielle Pasternak as their planner. She was especially amazing at keeping the vision of the couple in mind in the pre-wedding planning and on the day of.

We would especially like to thank the vendors for pulling everything together. They all certainly did a wonderful job. Finally, we would like to thank the beautiful bride and handsome groom for including Bella Angel. It was truly our pleasure.
