Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Knowlton Mansion | Casey + Eric

Wedding

125 guests and several continents arrived to celebrate Casey and Eric’s wedding at the beautiful Knowlton Mansion in Northeast Philly. (Remember their wintery Princeton engagement session?) You’d never know this 130+ year old mansion was there unless you were looking for it and once you find it, BAM!, you’re presented with this slate roofed, three story Victorian masterpiece with brass chandeliers, hardwood floors, stained glass windows, and manicured gardens. It’s kind of crazy.

Casey, Eric, and guests gathered here on what would have been Casey’s grandparents’ 64 wedding anniversary. She knew of the venue because her grandparents used to live right down the street. Casey carried her grandmother’s angel pin and great aunt Elsie’s handkerchief with her that day.

There is no doubt that their Casey and Eric’s sense of humor made an appearance. Check out the wording on their rsvp cards.

They did a first look and formals before the ceremony so that they could get to the party during cocktail hour.

Oh, right, and I forgot to mention that there are ponies on the property.

The ceremony took place outside under perfectly overcast skies.

I really like the hand binding ceremony that they incorporated into the service.

Eric’s phone reads: “Update Status: Can’t figure out how to properly do it so this will have to do… MARRIED TO”

We retired into the intricately decorated rooms and the stunning conservatory with impossibly tall beamed ceilings for the cocktail hour and reception.

They shared their first dance to Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing.”

The food by Conroy Catering was spectacular. For dinner there was an Indian station and a carving station in addition to the fantastic cocktail hour passed hors d’oeuvres, pasta station, and a bruschetta station.

“Party animals” just scratches the surface when it comes to this crowd. There was hooting, hollering, whistling, flailing, and so much dancing it would make your head spin. And it was awesome!

Jenica + Heath: Jewish Wedding at the City Club of San Francisco
I have kind of gotten behind in my posting but I wanted to share this beautiful wedding between Jenica and Heath that I shot with the talented Lisa of Lisa Leigh Photography.My day started with the groom and his groomsmen at Barber Lounge in San Francisco. I don't know how they came across it but it was simply perfect and oh-so-trendy. It's on the third floor in an old building in SOMA and has these great old windows across the front of the reception area. It stretches back with lots of space filled with hair stylists, masseuses, and, of course, barbers. If you get a chance, I highly recommend checking this place out. It's just so unli ...
