Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | All Saints Catholic Church | Stacy & Joe

Wedding

Not many couples get the chance to get married twice. Two venues, two dresses, two parties, two cities, and two completely different weddings (don’t worry, same partners). Stacy and Joe are just that lucky. To tell you the truth, I feel the luckiest of all because I got to see them for their engagement session around the Art Museum, another session with Stacy, and both of their weddings.

The first was on July 4th in Philadelphia (pretty perfect, no?). Joe’s entire family lives within a few blocks of each other. And this is a big family. Joe is one of 10 and then you’ve got all of the spouses, nieces, nephews… It was so important that the wedding be based among all of this love and take place at the family’s church (right down the street, of course).

Stacy got ready at Joe’s sister’s house. Stacy had some beautiful details including blue Badgley Mischka shoes, a borrowed pearl bracelet from her mom, a veil borrowed from her godmother, another bracelet from Joe’s great aunt, and gorgeous diamond earrings that Joe gave her as a wedding gift.

Stacy, as always, looked incredible. The ultimate happy, nervous, gorgeous bride.

Joe was getting ready a block or so away at his parents’ house, all decked out for the wedding and Independence Day.

We gathered at All Saints Catholic Church.

Guests were invited to don red, white, and blue for the occasion. Stacy’s bouquet was a fantastic combination accented by a brooch from Joe’s grandmother, a horseshoe necklace, symbolic of Stacy’s grandfather, “Poppy”, and a swath of fabric from her grandmother’s wedding dress. I loved how intimately everyone was represented.

Do you remember how sweltering it was this past Fourth of July? It was about 95 degrees with a heat index over 100. According to Stacy, the day was to be 77 and sunny. Not so much. So it was slightly warm inside the ornate but un-air-conditioned church where Stacy and Joe said their nuptials for the first time that week.

We grabbed a few family shots at the altar and I took Stacy and Joe for a quick walk for some pictures of them before I bid them adieu until the second wedding a few days later in Connecticut.

Bucks County Wedding Photographer | Aldie Mansion | Angela + Davide
Angela made one thing clear to me before the wedding day: “We’re all Italian so it will be loud.”  I was looking forward to it! There were so many creatively beautiful touches that day.  I had an inkling that might happen when I met with them months ago for their coffee shop engagement session and then received their 3D save-the-date. The fingertip length veil that Angela wore was created from her mother’s own cathedral length veil. There were a few things to worry about (like the dog sitter who never showed for their two doxies) but solutions were found and there was so much calm once Angela and Davide did their first loo ...

Tomer and Sarah knew what they were doing. After dating for three years and knowing each other even longer, Sarah and Tomer eloped atop a mountain in Virginia, a 3 mile hike where Tomer had popped the question just two months before. It was just them and their officiant, a very close professor who was ordained just for them. It was important that they have something very intimate from day 1.But where’s the fun in that if there’s not a group of friends and family to help them celebrate their marriage? Enter their reception party help at the delicious Garces restaurant, Amada, in Old City.It was a chilly December night when their closest 40 ...

Wedding Photography at Philadelphia City Hall: Triana + Ankur
I don’t think Triana and Ankur could keep a straight face for more than 10 minutes if their lives depended on it. And, honestly, I wouldn’t want it any other way. This was the same Harry Potter/Twihard couple I geeked out with at their engagement session a few months ago at Longwood Gardens.So there we were at Philadelphia City Hall on an incredibly hot Thursday afternoon waiting for these two to say their ‘I do’s. Ankur had arrived at the crack of dawn and elbowed out some fellow to-be-weds months earlier to reserve this date. City Hall weddings are something special because there is so little stuff involved. It really is all about the ...
