Mr. & Mrs. Bright: Philly Edition

Reader, I married him.

On June 1, 2019 it was an honor to officially be united in marriage with a truly special person, my HUSBAND, Joel Rice BRIGHT! #thisiswhatequalitylookslike

We had a morning ceremony at the Historic Arch Street Meeting House, followed by an INCREDIBLE brunch at Talula’s Garden, and finished it all off with a bar party at Bonner’s Irish Pub.


  • Getting ready together and walking into our ceremony together while all our friends and family sang “Enter, Rejoice, and Come In”.

  • Having so many loved ones participate in blessing our marriage.

  • Having a whole bunch of congregational singing as part of our ceremony.

  • Joel’s vows. “For all of time and space.”

  • Saying our vows over a piece of petrified wood as an oathing stone. (Yeah, it was weird and wonderful.)

  • I cried basically non stop all day and my makeup held up.

  • Joel’s friend Tim playing bagpipes for us.

  • The incredible food all. day. long. I honestly can’t rave about Kerri and the team at Talula’s enough. They were absolutely phenomenal.

  • Arguably my most brilliant idea since deciding to marry Joel: USING A QR CODE FOR THE SEATING CHART. I was able to change it up until the night before and honestly just loved being able to incorporate technology into our brunch.
