Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia wedding

Jamie & Vlad

A magic-tinged autumnal affair

Jamie & Vlad

Their romance officially bloomed at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia, so it was only fitting that Vlad and Jamie get married there too. Though they'd met on Match.com, the true love story unfolded when Vlad surprised Jamie with a night at the opera ‘La Boheme,' followed by a stay at the HKimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia—in room 829 (the date of their first date). The rest, as they say, is history. The perfect recipe for their autumnal wedding? Music, love and even a little moonshine.

Memorable Details

On October 10, 2014, at 6 p.m., Jamie's father walked her down the aisle in the Lafayette Ballroom, to a tune by Yo Yo Ma. With less than 60 guests, their wedding was small—but mighty!

The bride wore white (lace).

Memorable Details

Cocktail hour commenced at Stratus Lounge, where Vlad's groomsman Bogdan offered Èuica (a common Romanian moonshine, since Vlad grew up in Romania). A decadent dinner was later served and afterward, well, it's safe to say everyone brought their dancing shoes!

"When we got engaged and started planning the wedding, we thought it would be great if we could get married at the Monaco!" -Jamie
