Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | St. Augustine + Courtyard Marriott | Jamie + John

Wedding

It was a chilly but sunny November Philly day when Jamie and John tied the knot. The church, colors, and wedding guests (wedding party especially) were nothing short of fabulous! I had a hunch this was going to be a fun time when I met with Jamie and John for their engagement session at Villanova University (where they met at school) and learned of the pair’s love of movies.

John and his men were armed with Ghostbusters gear pre-ceremony.

I love this shot of Jamie’s mom seeing her all done up!

John and the guys channeling a little Reservoir Dogs…

Their Catholic ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Augustine Catholic Church.

This church was beautifully ornate with a drool-worthy balcony that allowed for incredible images of the ceremony below.

The wedding pictures were especially important to Jamie and John (bless them!) and they allowed for plenty of time and opportunities for great images. First stop: Race Street Pier.

Then the bridal party rallied for pictures at Franklin Square with wonderful fall colors of the carousel in the background.

Our last stop before the reception was on the classically Philadelphia scene of City Hall from Broad Street. I swear this view is spectacular in any season at any time of day in any weather.

We finally ended at the Courtyard Marriott Downtown for Jamie and John’s reception.

As homage to Jamie’s Main heritage, favors were maple syrup in beautiful engraved bottles.

They shared their first dance to “Longing to Belong” by Eddie Vedder.

And then the ruckus started. Dance moves like you wouldn’t believe and so, so, so much laughter!

Jamie and John, I can’t thank you enough for inviting me to be a part of such a wonderful day. So now dish details (and pics!) of your Australian honeymoon!

I’m falling harder then
I’ve ever fell before
Im falling fast while hoping
I’ll land in your arms
Cause all my time is spent here
Longing to belong to you

Walk inside of the doors of this Old City gem and you’ll have your eyes full of some of the most beautiful frocks this side of the catwalk. This new bridal boutique is absolutely hopping after opening its doors in 2013 with the charismatic and stylish Ivy Kaplin at the helm.  Lovely couldn't be a more fitting name. I stopped by the shop to indulge in the soft frillies – lace, tulle, illusion backs, non-whites, short, feathered, beaded, organza, silk… I could go on and on but that’s not my job. It’s Ivy’s. I asked Ivy if she still gets excited about the dresses and tries them on when the shop is closed. I know I absolutely would. S ...

Remember the oddity that was the snowstorm in late October? Yeah, so do Stephanie and Nick who had their wedding that day! Stephanie, a self-proclaimed type A, was a little concerned about the wintry mix that had shown up way too early in the year. Despite the wonky weather, the day went off beautifully! This is the same couple that wasn’t looking for love that I was telling you about a few months ago from their engagement session around Chestnut Hill.I met with Stephanie at the Sheraton not far from the wedding venue. She was there with her mother and sister watching the flakes through the window. She changed into her gorgeous Vera Wan ...

Si and Tanard’s wedding was not your normal wedding. Their wedding spread over two days and had one primary focus: fun! Given what I saw when I met them for their engagement session, this was no surprise to me.A small group of guests were invited out to the family’s farm, Seven Oaks, for a “dress rehearsal” that Friday night.  They were told that formal pictures would be taken then so they should dress up.What they did not tell them was that Friday wasn’t a dress rehearsal at all – it was the actual ceremony. The elated and emotional couple chose to do a first look that day for some uninterrupted time that would allow them to mingle w ...
