While planning their intimate wedding celebration with close friends and family, Kelly and Chris fell in love with Talula’s Garden in Washington Square in downtown Philadelphia. Though they live in New Jersey, the cozy, chic restaurant with its simple gourmet farm to table dishes drew them in and they knew they had found their unique wedding venue.

Talula’s Garden Restaurant: Intimate Downtown Wedding Venue

As an elegant restaurant with a gourmet market, Talula’s Garden has become a popular downtown restaurant in the middle of Society Hill. Described as a secret garden oasis, the farm-to-table restaurant was designed with rustic, chic elements and the garden courtyard offers a whimsical atmosphere with reclaimed wood and vintage details complemented by florals and greenery.

While the restaurant and courtyard created a romantic scene on its own, Jennifer Designs Events helped Kelly and Chris design a wedding space that fit their unique wedding tastes and built on the enchanted event space. Together with Ram Floral and Texture Florals, Jennifer added beautiful white and blush flowers with delicate greenery accents to the ceremony and reception space. The already romantic garden venue was transformed into Kelly and Chris’s intimate garden wedding.

I love that Talula’s Garden not only provides a romantic wedding space for both the ceremony and reception, but their downtown Philly location in Washington Square gave us the opportunity to step away for portraits of the bride and groom and their family. We found gorgeous lighting in the park and the area is surprisingly quiet allowing us to take our time taking photos of the couple with their beautiful children.

When we finished walking taking photos of the couple and their family in the Washington Square park, we spent a little extra time inside Talula’s Garden with just the bride and groom for more intimate portraits with the restaurant’s chic decor and the added floral details setting the mood.
