Bario Neal began as the collaborative work of designers Anna Bario and Page Neal. Anna and Page began working together with the shared idea that our most precious things come with a story. Drawn to the imaginative possibilities of jewelry, yet disillusioned by industry standards that turned a blind eye to metal and gemstone mining’s environmental and human tolls, the designers began to envision how to make jewelry of lasting value and ethical origins.
In 2008, Anna and Page launched Bario Neal as a design-forward, women-owned and feminist company. Today, Bario Neal is an industry leader in ethical sourcing and progressive manufacturing, known for its design sensibility and high-quality, handcrafted work. A belief in the right to love and marry whoever and however you choose is one of the core principles of Bario Neal’s jewelry. Whether it is a custom diamond ring or a pendant from the collections, each piece is designed in-house and handcrafted with reclaimed precious metals, Fairmined gold, and ethically sourced stones.
When visiting Bario Neal Philadelphia or the New York showroom, you will find an atmosphere unlike any other jewelry shop. The Philadelphia flagship doubles as both a production workshop and retail space, where a diverse group of skilled jewelers work next to the collection displays. The knowledgeable sales and design crew are thoughtful, approachable and trained to help customers realize their vision, whether through a custom design or an item from one of Bario Neal’s acclaimed collections.
Bario Neal is designing an ethical way forward for the jewelry industry, one handmade piece at a time. Explore our online shop, New York showroom or Philadelphia workshop and become part of the story.

Live Your Story. Speak Your Love.
The Art of Etiquette creates vow books and keepsakes for life’s big days. We believe every love story is unique. We celebrate yours by empowering you to write your vows—on your own terms, in your own words—in beautifully-bound mini books and with the help of our vow-writing services.
To us, there’s nothing more important than feeling truly seen in your wedding vows. The words and promises you and your partner will live by should be a reflection of all that makes your union beautiful. As a certified LGBTQ+ inclusive vendor, we are intentional about crafting products and services that will help rewrite the narrative of our industry into one that embraces all identities and gender spectrums.
We believe language and messaging matter, so we turn ours into action by creating welcoming spaces. Each blank page in our books is an invitation for you to be your own storyteller. There are lines on the page, but no rules. There are thoughtfully-curated quotes as inspiration, but the meaning and how you choose to define it are entirely up to you.
A New Tradition
To us, the notion of etiquette is not about tradition or decorum. It is simply about kindness. Taking the time to write your own vows is a gesture of thoughtfulness. It tells the person you love that one-size-doesn’t-fit-all. That you’re willing to endure even messy first drafts and writer’s block if it means expressing your true feelings in front of them and all your loved ones.
Our books even have tiny paper pockets for you to write a first anniversary letter (to be opened in the future)! Years later, when you look back on this day, you’ll have a keepsake of your words and promises. And you’ll have created your own personal traditions, together.
People often tell us that our vow books are so beautiful, they’re almost afraid to write in them. But your vows don’t have to be perfect. In fact, we encourage couples to relish in all the little imperfections that make their relationship unique. Maybe it’s an inside joke, or a shared memory. Maybe sweet and sentimental isn’t your style but fun and heartfelt is.
In every set of vow books, you’ll find a vow-writing booklet full of prompts, tips and questions designed to help get the words flowing. We also include practice sheets so you can feel things out on paper before writing them in your book. Embrace the journey and remember there’s no right or wrong way to write your own vows. Love is love and we’re here to celebrate yours one page at a time.

Congratulations on your engagement! Each couple is unique and so each wedding ceremony needs to be unique. The most beautiful ceremonies reflect the hopes, dreams, love, traditions, and values that you bring to each other.
I can provide resources and guidance throughout the ceremony planning process. As you determine how you want your wedding to be structured, I will help you both to understand the meaning of different rituals and customs (both religious and secular) and to select readings, prayers, and music that you find meaningful. Your ceremony can be creative and can include as many or as few religious elements and cultural traditions as you want. I can also help you prepare vows if you choose to write them yourself and determine how you would like to involve your family, friends, and guests in the ceremony.
In addition to providing rabbinical and cantorial services for Jewish weddings, I am comfortable conducting both interfaith and secular wedding ceremonies and am happy to co-officiate with special friends or family, or clergy from other faiths. I believe strongly in marriage equality and delight in serving and supporting the LGBTQIA+ community. In life – and especially at a wedding – everyone should feel loved and embraced.

We are a boutique event management company which means we limit the amount of clients we take on each year to eliminate being overburden and decreasing our quality of service to you. What does this mean? We produce no more than two weddings each month and no more than 6 corporate or social events each month.

Hey, I’m Chris and I provide bold, modern, and authentic photography for unconventional couples. I believe that your dream wedding should be unapologetically you, and that you deserve the peace of mind knowing that that I’ll capture real emotions and real moments without noticing I’m there. I’ll thoughtfully document all that you cherish so that you’ll be able to relive the joy of your wedding for years to come.
Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions of the wedding planning process. You need to be absolutely sure you find someone you’re comfortable with because they’ll be with you the entire day. You need to love their style because you’ll be looking back on the photos for decades to come.
Peace of Mind
I’ve photographed 125+ weddings. I’ll capture everything about your wedding day without having to be asked. You’ll get timeless photos, not bizarre sepia toned fad edits. You’ll look back and remember the day as clearly as if you were there.
I like to keep everything very casual. I provide very light direction so you won’t be forced to pose in unnatural ways. There will be banter and real laughter. It’s essentially an awesome adventure where someone just happens to me taking photos. Couples routinely tell me that their anxiety quickly disappeared and that they had a lot more fun than they expected to.
I appreciate bold aesthetics, wide shots, and incorporating architectural elements. My couples tend to appreciate those things as well. Why have an epic location or venue if you don’t capture it?
