The beginning of 2020 was great fun for Tango Café. The beautiful Society Hill Dance Academy, home to our milonga, welcomed over 190 dancers with our amazing Roaring 20s Milonga in January, and in February 2020 guest DJ Jorge Fernández kept us dancing for hours. That was our last milonga; and although Covid-19 has kept us on hiatus for over a year now, we remain in love with the dance. Tango Café, along with others in the Philadelphia tango community, will resume milongas and on-location activities when it is safe to do so. We continue to support all efforts to continue building a strong, safe and vibrant tango community for all. Stay tuned for future updates. Be well and stay safe. We shall embrace again. Un gran abrazo!
// Talia & Alex \\ “The most unique element of our wedding would have to be the venue. The Groom has known the owner of The Hideaway at Crooked Creek for nearly 10 years and used to work for him. Their relationship has grown over the years and Alex has seen the venue grow from an idea to the beautiful space it is today. The uniqueness of the ceremony space near the waterfall, the entire landscape (including cows and llamas grazing in the fields nearby), combined with the tented reception space (including a DJ booth, catering station, and spectacular lighting), made it feel like a space created just for us." ceremony/reception: The Hideaway at Crooked Creek photography: Danielle James Photo gown: THEIA gown from BHLDN bridesmaids’ dresses: Birdy Grey groom/groomsmen’s formalwear: INDOCHINO invitations: East Avenue Creations cake: Maple Honey Goods catering: Holly Tate Fine Catering flowers: Sedgefield Florist officiant: David Lovice (Groom’s Uncle) & Mark Yoder hair services: Mirror Bomb Studio makeup services: Makeup by Caitlyn Michelle wedding coordinator: A Beautiful Day by Christina music/entertainment: Dow Oak Events & Corda Entertainment party rentals: The Prettiest Pieces Vintage Rentals & Happy Rentz Inc videography: Everything Legendary favors: Copley and Pine (Etsy) transportation: O.Henry Hotel honeymoon/travel: The Africa Adventure Company sewing/alterations: Nilah & Company dance lessons: Society Hill Dance Academy rehearsal dinner caterer: Rack Slabbath BBQ pj sets for bridesmaids w/ matching dog bandanas: Poppy & Co
