Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology | Robin + Chris

Wedding

Robin and Chris came to me like many before them – they were thinking of having a small, easy wedding ceremony at City Hall and wanted some beautiful pictures to commemorate the day.  I talked them through the opaque process and the ins and outs of Philadelphia City Hall weddings as they worked the logistics out on their end.  As they got closer to the day, they realized that they had more guests than originally planned and the date itself was getting tricky.

I had posed the idea of getting married somewhere else Quaker style or with an outside officiant.  City Hall had been a big draw but this idea was looking more and more attractive.

Chris came upon simple and sweet ceremonies hosted at the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and it was right up their alley.  A few confirmations later and we had ourselves a wedding!

It was a lovely day and the wedding was delightful.  They exchanged rings and vows in front of the Sphinx in the Egypt room before reuniting with their guests and birdseed out in the front garden.

As their guests went off for cocktails, I got the two all to myself for pictures around the museum.

I should clarify that they were not “all to myself.”  As we wandered to the Stoner Courtyard, three Frenchmen in wetsuits were getting into the fountain and playing music on found and recycled objects.  I couldn’t even make this stuff up!

We enjoyed the soundtrack as romantic Chris waltzed with Robin.

The performers indulged us for some pictures before they left.

We then walked back through the museum to the China exhibit and came upon a team preparing for a televised corporate function in the room.  We got a few images there and on the stairs before meeting up with the guests again.

Everyone had gathered in Bella Vista at Beau Monde for drinks while we were out on the town.

I left them as they were making their way to a beautifully set dinner at Bistrot La Minette across the street.

It was a beautiful, quirky day and I’m so glad they went for something unique and brought me along for the ride!  Congratulations, Robin and Chris!

Le ciel bleu sur nous peut s’effondrer
Et la terre peut bien s’écrouler
Peu m’importe si tu m’aimes
Je me fous du monde entier
Tant que l’amour inondera mes matins
Tant que mon corps frémira sous tes mains
Peu m’importent les problèmes
Mon amour puisque tu m’aimes
~ Edith Piaf, “Hymne à l’Amour”
