Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Glen Foerd Mansion | Jen + Joe

Wedding

We had a few days of strange 80+ degree days and then came the day for Jen and Joe’s wedding and Glen Foerd Mansion. It was chilly and damp, which really only made the grand estate feel more proper somehow. The beautiful venue on the Delaware River was vibrant with green and overflowing with history and charm. It’s a place Jen has known practically her whole life.

Despite coordinating a wedding and four very little ones, Jen looked radiant.

They had a first look before the ceremony. It was great to wander the grounds and spend some quiet time together.

As I said, Glen Foerd is beautiful and oh-so-charming.

The ceremony was held in the drawing room, just the right size to hold the couple’s intimate 35 guests. This room with lush red tapestries, gilded mirrors and chandeliers, and piano player in the background felt perfect. Governor Ed Rendell, a close family friend, presided over the ceremony.

There were little ones everywhere. The couple opted for a low key dinner reception and I stayed through the cocktail hour to get a few images of the day’s revelry.

Reading Wedding Photographer | Stokesay Castle | Becca + Mike
Hey Lindsay, want to photograph a petite curly haired bride and her hilarious groom on a beautiful day in Reading, PA? Um… yes! Great!  How about we throw in fantastic weather, family heirlooms, a long veil, a few forgotten vows, and a gaggle of flower girls so adorable you’ll explode with cuteness and ruffles? Game on! And that’s how it went down.  I started with the ladies at Becca’s family’s house.  There were some amazing little touches that had been passed down through her sister’s wedding and beyond – her mother’s blue stick pin for her something blue, her grandmother’s prayer book that so many before her had carried with th ...
