Bridal Market Picks

October 16, 2017

Bridal Market is always a whirlwind of inspiration for us here at District Weddings and we couldn’t be more excited to share with you our top picks and inspirations!

BERTA collection is derived in many ways from the world of Botany, and in particular – Flowers. As the crown jewels of the plants world, Flowers are fascinating to behold, magical to smell and have an endless array of colors. They arouse all senses, and have an admirable inner-complexity.


Galia Lahav designed a line that allowes the bride’s desire to express her individuality in her daily life with her scent, and through fashion on her wedding day, ushered in new approaches to gossamer tulles, fine laces and intricate embroidery, woven into our interpretation of how the world of scents would come to life in our latest collection, Florence by Night.

Ines Di Santo created a collection where you will find presence. Signature pearls, fabrics and beaded embroidery come together to create gowns that are as varied as the city and the authentic women that inspired them.

Multicultural Real Wedding of Jeremy and Danya

September 27, 2017

With any Lebanese wedding, the goal is to make it as memorable as possible. Jeremy and Danya definately had a memorable and gorgous wedding! Their multi-cultural was filled with love and celebration and a timeless design, starting with Danya’s wedding gown. The night started with a true celebration with the Zaffe dance routine. The Zaffe is the dramatic entrance of the bride at the reception, and it begins with a dance routine with young men dressed in traditional clothing and the groom leading the group. How can you not stay on the dancefloor after a dance-set of cheering, clapping, music and more dancing. How fun!

Terrain Gardens

September 19, 2017

RBN Food and Beverage announces the Fall 2018 opening of Terrain Gardens, an innovative new venue that is now accepting booking requests for events taking place September 1, 2018 and onward. From the designers behind terrain at Styer’s, Terrain Gardens will offer a lush, horticultural setting with ever-changing greenery that creates a lavish backdrop for special occasions year-round for up to 150 guests. The venue, situated on the Philadelphia Main Line, will be part of the newly-created lifestyle center, Devon Yard.

“It’s with great excitement that we’re bringing this one-of-a-kind venue to the Main Line next year,” says David Ziel, URBN Chief Development Officer. “Terrain Gardens will combine the rustic beauty unique to the terrain brand with a contemporary edge, creating an event space unlike any other in the area. The venue will provide guests with an unforgettable experience – from conception and planning to the enjoyment of the day’s festivities.”

From weddings to mitzvahs and other significant events, those who choose to celebrate at Terrain Gardens will work hand-in-hand with the experienced Terrain Gatherings team to create an unforgettable affair.

The Venue
The venue will include four distinctive spaces; the Reception Room, a combination of rustic charm and modern amenities available for celebrations year-round; the Garden Porch, a weather-protected space overlooking the gardens; the Ceremony Garden, a secluded garden hideaway; and the Bridal Suite, a spacious and private changing area perfect for a quiet moment before the ceremony.

The Ceremony Garden, Reception Room, and Garden Porch can accommodate parties of up to 150 guests, with additional standing room. Additional spaces at Devon Yard may also be reserved for rehearsal dinners, groom’s packages, send-off brunches, engagement parties, bridal showers, and more.

Deeply rooted in nature and plant life, terrain merges house and garden to create an experience for all the senses. Adjacent to terrain at Devon, Terrain Gardens beautifully merges indoor and outdoor spaces to create unexpected color and texture combinations resulting in a one-of-a-kind beauty. The venue is adorned with elements like reclaimed barn wood floors, overhead festival lights, and skylights to create a unique aesthetic that’s the first of its kind on the Main Line.
