Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Top of the Tower | Lindsay + Steve
I feel like Lindsay and Steve’s wedding should have happened ages ago. I met with them over a year and a half before their wedding day and was in close contact with Lindsay going over all of the details and ideas that she had for it. I was thrilled when the day finally arrived. You might remember them from the engagement session that took us all over Drexel’s campus, where they first met.
Everything went down at Philadelphia’s gorgeous Top of the Tower. It was a stunningly clear day and the views from the 50th floor were incredible. Lindsay and the ladies were a cool group, laughing and hanging out before the ceremony. Lindsay wore her grandmother’s blue ring (her old, borrowed, and blue), a delicate pearl bracelet, and some kick ass lace shoes (as a back story, Lindsay went all around NYC for the perfect shoes only to go back home to Texas and find these beauties).
A thing about Lindsay – despite planning this shindig for the better part of two years, she’s simply awesome. Not one hint of bridezilla. She and Steve created this gorgeous event under the theme, “Timeless Love” and just had a great day. Lindsay designed, printed, and screenprinted all of the paper products for the wedding. Not only is she creative and drop dead gorgeous, Lindsay has the absolute greatest expressions too. You’ll see.
Her sister told Lindsay her dress looked like whipped cream (in the best possible way, of course). The Winnie Couture gown fit her like a glove. She had tried on several others but just couldn’t get this one out of her head.
Her headband was a lovely piece from Twigs and Honey.
The ceremony was held in the Stonorov Room, presided over by the family’s minister from Connecticut. Lindsay gracefully descended the stairs and was escorted by her brother to her grinning groom.
Following there ceremony, we took some pictures on the ground floor out by the fountain and then headed over to Logan Square (but seriously, it’s a circle) with the bridal party.
Cocktails and hors d’oeurves were served in the Grand Hallway while guests played around at the Oh, snap! Studio. I loved the seating cards – classy slips that were posted to a blackboard with vintage-looking black and white magnets. Chalkboard accents were seen all over that day.
The tables were set in an arrangement of rounds and squares with centerpieces of soft roses in mason jars and an array of over 30 vintage clocks that Lindsay had collected over the months. Engineer friends were tinkering with them all night long.
Once inside the Furness Room, guests dined and listened to beautiful and heartfelt speeches before being surprised with a slideshow of images featuring Lindsay, Steve, family, and friends over the years. (As a side note, Top of the Tower had some of the best wedding food this vegetarian has ever had.)
Dinner ended and we moved down the hall to witness Lindsay and Steve’s first dance to Sam Cooke’s “Nothing Can Change this Love”.
And of course there was cake cutting…
We just had to get a picture of all of the Drexel people!
What an incredible wedding. Everything came together so beautifully. I’m sure so many hours went into it but it all looked so effortless. Lindsay and Steve, so many congratulations! It kills me that you two live so far away but definitely let me know whenever you come to town.
You’re the apple of my eye
You’re cherry pie
Oh, you’re cake and ice cream
You’re sugar and spice, everything nice
You’re the girl of my dreams
~ Sam Cooke, Nothing Can Change This Love”
