Find your nearest boutique

Embark on the enchanting love journey of Logan Cohen, where style, love, and a profound appreciation for food and art converge. Donning the Jamie gown, Logan exchanged vows at the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art, creating a picturesque setting for her special day.

A moment of your wedding day will you never forget?

An ice cream truck. As we were scouting venues, As a huge Auguste Rodin fan, II was set on Rodin museum. With its intimate garden, The Thinker at the front, and the Fates in the back, it felt just perfect. My Fiance, Jamie, was worried that it was too close to a busy highway and didn’t  want to hear “ice cream truck” music during the ceremony.

On the day of, sure enough, an ice cream truck was right in front of Rodin’s famous Thinker statue. Jamie and I turned to each other and laughed. We made our way over, and even ordered some soft serve before the ceremony. That moment set the tone of the rest of the day: Embrace what’s in our control, and find the fun in what’s not. They wound up being some of our favorite pictures.

One thing you wish you knew as a new bride? What advice would you give to future brides?

So many people say that the day goes by quickly, and to take it all in. I appreciated that advice, but honestly, there’s no right or wrong speed.  I would encourage future brides to take it in at their own pace.

Some parts of the day are a rush, like hours on the dance floor,  and that’s okay. While other moments, like walking down the aisle feel like they’re in slow motion, especially when Dad gives your hand that extra comforting squeeze. Your soon-to-be husband’s face during the first look surpasses any concept of time because that memory is eternally ingrained within me now.

Be present, be you, and embrace the day for what it is, a celebration of your love. Also… always order more pizza for the after party than you think you need.

A detail that made your wedding special/unique?

An intersection of our two loves: food and art.

We curated our menu based on our favorite meals and snacks from our travels. From vegan “crispy rice” from New Years in Tokyo to pear and pecorino ravioli from a summer trip to Positano. Dessert included macarons that were handed out on painters palettes. Our reception was in the grand stair half of The Philadelphia Museum of Art underneath a gilded statue of Dianna the Huntress. The museum was kind enough to keep a handful of galleries open so that guests could experience the art and even have a guided tour. Our love of art extended to our registry. In lieu of gifts, we asked guests to consider donating to The Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative that works to protect cultural heritage threatened or impacted by disasters. Most recently, they’ve been working to protect Ukraine’s cultural heritage.

How did you know your dress was 'the one'?

When embarking on the dress search, I was certain of one thing… It needed to be a Galia Lahav.  I was actually on my way to try on the Bella dress, when I called my Dad who told me “Logan, just don’t settle. Just like you found Jamie for a husband, don’t settle on any dress, make sure it’s special.”

After trying on the Bella, it was gorgeous, but not for me. The consultant recommended another dress I didn’t pick. Once I tried it on, the room, which consisted of my mom, Jamie’s mom, and my brother’s wife, collectively gasped.

I knew it was the one. It was only the second dress I tried on, and when checking the tag, I saw that it was called “The Jamie”. My fiance’s name. It was meant to be… I didn’t settle.

How did it feel when you put on your dress the day of the wedding? What was everyone's reaction to the dress?

Like the absolute best version of me. Galia’s collection has the unique ability to make you feel otherworldly, while still feeling like yourself. I loved the balance of elegance and sexiness. I wanted to look back to show my grandkids pictures one day and still look like me, not me playing dress up- that’s the timelessness that I genuinely felt that my dress exuded.

Regarding reactions, it can be summed up by Jamie’s first words when he saw me…  “I’m SO happy”

Would you have done anything differently?

Not a thing. Jamie and I still can’t believe how lucky we are to have had a wedding that surpassed our wildest dreams. We are so beyond grateful for our families who made this possible.

What was your favourite part of the wedding to plan/you were most looking forward to?

There were so many things to look forward to, but I have to say our first dance topped the list. Jamie chose the song: Pure Imagination from Willy Wanka. There’s something so galvanizing and romantic about the lyrics of “Want to change the world… there’s nothing to it.” I found a moody cover to set the mood a little more.

We started the dance at opposite sides of the  top of  the Grand Stair Hall underneath a gilded statue of Diana the Huntress. We made our way down 42 marble steps (yes, 42! In heels and a train!)  to a choreographed dance we had been practicing with a Broadway coach for weeks leading up.

Since we felt like the venue, the song, and the mood were all beautiful, but a bit stuffy, we worked in a surprise. By the time we hit the bottom of the steps, the music transitioned to the song “Hey Ma” by Cam’ron to invite our guests to let their hair down a bit and start the party.

How did you meet your husband? How did he propose?

We met at a Shabbat dinner that our good friends set up at their parents house on the Upper West Side. After dinner, Jamie and I took nearly a 2 hour walk home to downtown. I thought, wow what a kind, handsome guy with an absolute wonder and zest for life.  It wasn’t until around date six where I shared how surprised I was that we met organically at a Shabbat dinner while neither of us are especially religious.  Jamie laughed and said… “Oh that was a TOTAL set up. I knew you would be there.”

Jamie proposed at sunset in Positano, Italy at Il San Pietro. It was a dream. He custom designed the ring using one of my favorite brands, Hermès, and added his own touch for the diamond.

How did you find working with the team at Galia Lahav?

An absolute dream. They’re true experts at their craft, yet care enough to listen to ensure that every detail is better than you can imagine.

How many dresses did you try on before you found it?

Just one!  I specifically went in for “The Bella” dress. Although it was stunning, it wasn’t right for me. “The Jamie” was the second dress I tried on. Be kind to yourself throughout the process. Just like in love, when you know, you know.
