Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | DoubleTree Hotel | Becca + Nick

Wedding

If Snow White were real, I’m fairly certain she would look like Becca. Becca was absolutely gorgeous and her wedding to Nick was filled with personal touches, unseasonably warm weather (a few days before Frankenstorm, no less), and a group that knew how to rock it out like it was their job.

I arrived at the Philadelphia DoubleTree Hotel to spend time with Becca and the ladies before the ceremony.

Dreamy, fluffy, bowed Badgley Mischkas? Yes, please!

Nick wrote a note for Becca to read before the ceremony. It included his famous doodles of them. Completely adorable!

Please note Becca’s “something blue” toenails and pearls borrowed from her new mother in law (who had an emergency appendectomy a few days before the wedding and still looked amazing).

This little one is going to be big trouble if he isn’t already. See that impish grin and golden curls. Oh, dear.

The team loaded into the limo and were off to St. John the Evangelist Church. It was such a gorgeous Catholic church and the sermon was about gifts – giving the gift of life and love to each other, gifts that come from nowhere else but from the hearts of two people who have fallen in love.

The bridal party headed out to the Azalea Garden and the Philadelphia Art Museum after the church. The colors were just popping off of the trees. It was beautiful.

Before heading back into the DoubleTree for cocktail hour, we had to take the classic Broad Street shot. I don’t care how many times I see this, it’s still stunning. A beautiful woman in a white dress, her handsome groom, and one of Philly’s most iconic buildings.

Escort cards were attached to bottles of 100% pure Vermont maple syrup made by Rebecca’s family for five generations.

Becca and Nick danced their first dance to “Amazed” by Lonestar. As I learned in their Manayunk engagement session, Nick makes the best faces.

The reception was a great time. I think just about everyone was on the dancefloor.

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Morris House Hotel | Elise + Eric
Elise and Eric wanted their wedding day to be super low key.  Well, Elise did.  She would have happily eloped.  Eric is more of a traditionalist.   This combination resulted in a gorgeous fall wedding day for the two at the Morris House Hotel with 49 guests. I was enamored of Elise’s cloudlike wedding gown that breezed behind her as she walked.  It had a floral embroidered top set against an illusion neckline and back.  She wore the daintiest set of pearls – a meaningful strand that has been in her family for ages. Elise bemoaned the fact that white wedding shoes were so hard to find.  I don’t understand th ...

Michelle + Mike: Chester County Wedding at the Brandywine Manor House
Michelle and Mike are hilarious. They held their wedding at the Brandywine Manor House in Honeybrook, PA (about an hour west of Philadelphia). Sure, it was a little chilly and the wind got pretty awful, but these two looked amazing and the sky, well, you'll see…The day started off incredible. Huge puffy clouds set against fantastic blue skies. I love this hand-painted sign at the entrance to the manor.The girls partied it up while getting ready in the bridal suite. Michelle herself had some pretty gorgeous accessories. Despite losing some blue heels just prior to the wedding day, Michelle had a pair of adorable ivory flats, some great j ...

Michelle + Alastair: A Casual Wedding in Ithaca, NY
Last month I was in Ithaca, NY for the wedding of Michelle and Alastair (you may remember their engagement session at 30th Street Station). Though they live in San Francisco, and had their engagement session in Philadelphia, their romance began about 15 years ago at Cornell. Years pulled them apart and brought them together again but they finally ended up tying the knot on a rainy day in June among 93 adults, 7 children, and 10 babies. There were vows, a wedding gown, rings, and toasts but this celebration was gloriously low key, just as Michelle and Alastair wanted it. Read on for creative jewelry, little ones everywhere, BBQ, board game ...
