Lucy and Andrew had been following the renovations of the Bok building, a historic vocational school restored into a creative space for small businesses with a rooftop bar and event space.

They were thrilled to be one of the first weddings on the South Philly rooftop terrace with 360-degree views of the city. The industrial space was embellished with local florals from Vault + Vine in East Falls. Birchtree Catering, a woman-owned business known for its local and seasonal fare, created a spread of coffee-smoked brisket, lemon-roasted chicken and orchard salad. A “donut wall” by Federal Donuts evolved through the night into a pretzel wall from Philly Pretzel Factory.

Using local artisan business Remark Glass, the couple was able to create commemorative repurposed glassware from their empty wine and champagne bottles.

Lucy and Andrew understand that weddings are a huge financial investment, so they wanted to make sure to not only put that money toward their beautiful day, but also toward small businesses that share their values and love for Philadelphia.
