Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Radisson Warwick Hotel | Candace + Scott

Wedding

It was a drizzly morning on Candace and Scott’s wedding day. Honestly, this didn’t seem to bother them at all. This was just as I expected after I saw how laid back they were at the engagement session in Fairmount Park this past spring. They held the ceremony and reception at the Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel right around the corner from Philly’s Rittenhouse Square.

Scott’s wedding gift to her were these gorgeous diamond and pearl earrings.

Candace just blows me away. She’s absolutely stunning (she says she’ll get back to working out after all of this wedding stuff is over). As amazing as she looks in a wedding gown, she would have been just as happy, if not more, in sweats. Her wedding day shoes included Manolos, Badgley Mishkas, and silver sparkly TOMS.  She was really psyched for the TOMS.

Be braved the outdoors and did the formals in Rittenhouse Square where we had great diffused light from the overcast skies.

We gathered inside for the intimate signing of the ketubah and the bedeken.

The chuppah and the ballroom looked fantastic and the Jewish wedding ceremony went off without a hitch.

During cocktail hour, the ballroom was transformed for the reception. Candace and Scott entered to share their first dance, “Realize” by Colbie Caillat sung by a 10 piece band.

Which of course led into a rousing hora…

The wedding toasts gave guests some insight on Candace and Scott’s 9 year relationship (much of it spent long distance) as well as a few tidbits about each including certain yellow bird dance costumes for Candace and maid of honor, Julie.

The reception was all out dancing. Bridesmaids crowded the dance floor for a special “Call Me Maybe” and the place was swinging.

Desserts included a beautiful cake and a candy bar with token toothbrushes (Candace is a dentist).

Joanna & John’s Reception in the Ferry Building
Say you walked into an event and were told that there were going to be Mongolian contortionists, fortune tellers, and go-go dancers. Would you believe it? That's kind of the way I felt Saturday night when I arrived at San Francisco's famed Ferry Building and went over the shot list with the event coordinator, Maxine. This was in addition to the virtual golf station and candy bar. I must say I was a little incredulous. I was half-expecting a TV camera to come out and see how long I'd let the list continue.But no. It was all very real and breathtaking.The event was a celebration of the marriage of Joanna and John, which had occurred a few ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Bartram’s Garden | Mika + Joe
I have met many low key, laid back brides but none of them hold a candle to Mika. She and Joe were married at Philadelphia's Bartram’s Garden with 10 of their closest family members in attendance.The oil lamp at their ceremony table was the same one her parent’s had at their wedding.Just a few highlights about Mika:She ordered her dress online and hoped for the best. It arrived a few days before the wedding. It was too long so she took scissors to the bottom of it the night before the wedding. Bonus fact: she wore her mom’s petticoat slip since the dress was a bit too sheer.The morning of the wedding she went to the salon and asked f ...
