Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Amada | Tomer + Sarah

Wedding

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-something friends and family gathered together for a night of congratulations, drinking, dining, and mingling.

I met up with them a little bit before the party started for a few nighttime pictures in the area.

Tell me you don’t adore Sarah’s party-length ruffled gown and stunner pumps!

And because I couldn’t help but snatch the shoes when I saw Sarah kick them off later in the night.

I am so, so happy for these two. They both have hearts of gold. Sarah is finishing up school to be a vet and Tomer just earned his doctorate. They live with four big, happy puppies in Virginia.

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Morris House Hotel |Jean + Brian
If I were planning my wedding all over again, it would look a lot like Jean and Brian’s.  It was incredibly similar in so many ways which made it all the more special since it was one of the very last I photographed before I said my own vows.  Their wedding had an intimate, family-centric guest list.  It was held on the summer solstice and pulled in a lot of natural and earthy elements.  There were a lot of whites and greens everywhere for a beautiful yet not shmancy feel.  It was great to have Rebecca of Rebecca Richman Events on board to keep the day running perfectly. Jean didn’t realize how important her dress was to her until she went ...
