Though we’ve yet to meet, we already know we have
one thing in common with you and your fiancé:
you are coming into this process
with your best friend by your side.
Since well before our own wedding in 2005, we been creating together.
Together, we’ve built something in Oleander that not only celebrates each
other and the things we hold dear, but pays forward our blessings by
celebrating the love of genuine couples like you.
you would think it would be an easy undertaking for two married designers
to express the heart of their work together.
But sometimes it is difficult to put into words something so very personal.
If there is one word we have heard repeated in reference to our designs,
it is romantic.
Romantic…to which one of us typically responds with a quiet giggle.
We're usually too immersed in our work and lives together to see it.
What we can always see clearly, though, is how our work reflects our relationship and our couples.
Rooted in tradition, beautifully imperfect, organic… raw… and incredibly romantic.
Creating thoughtful, intentional events with an eye for the full experience, beyond basic wedding checklists, naturally evolved from our shared joys.
Trends come and go, but our personal loves often circle back to the refined, timeless and ever always travel inspired.
In Oleander, a boutique wedding planning & design production studio, we have founded a partnership uncommon in today's event community.
Having trained under some of New York & Philadelphia's most established event stylists & floral designers, Cynthia's fine arts and photography background, passion for the botanical and keen sense of environmental design helped initially establish Oleander as one of the region's finest event studios.
David's successful career in interior architectural design, decor fabrication, metal casting, concrete sculpting and woodworking for commercial and residential clients throughout the Philadelphia & NYC markets then assisted in expanding Oleander's event capabilities far beyond the traditional.
