Wedding

There is no way to forget Keri and Dan. They were the fabulous couple who were up for an engagement session at a carnival. I was absolutely psyched for their wedding day. I asked Keri to get me beautiful light and she totally delivered. Keri and Dan had the kind of day all couples dream of having for their wedding day. The temperature, the skies, the light, and the color all came together for utter fall perfection. I could have been outside with them all day that day. Alas, there were other things to do… Like get married!

The wedding was held at the Chester Valley Golf Club in Malvern, PA. The ladies got ready in the club house while the men figured out boutonnieres in the locker room. Keri’s ‘something blue’ was a gorgeous aquamarine ring that Dan had given her the month before for their nine year anniversary.

You could say that Keri was a bit preoccupied that morning and maybe forgot to brush. Bridesmaids to the rescue.

The ceremony was so sweet. I don’t know if there was a dry eye in the house. Two readings – These Hands poem and the letter Paul Newman wrote to his wife on their wedding day were part of the service. There was a beautiful candle lighting to include all of the guests and the stage for the ceremony was constructed by family friends.

I love Keri’s reaction to the pronouncement of “husband and wife”!

We went outside to bask in the most stunning light.

These two danced their way through the entire day – up the aisle after the ceremony, during pictures, and certainly into their reception.

They shared their first dance together to “Love Song” by 311.

The speeches were great, especially the one by Keri’s sister, Michelle (a.k.a. Pippa).

Didn’t think so.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that these two are tall. (And yes, I’m really short!)

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

Romantic wedding elopement in Philadelphia's Wissahickon Park
Philadelphia Elopement Photographer | Wissahickon Trail | Christina + Larry
In the grand scheme of all weddings, I don’t think there is anything more romantic than an elopement.  No details.  Just two people so in love that “wedding” means commitment in its purest and simplest form.  Think Romeo & Juliet, William Wallace & Murron, and a slew of celebrity couples. I originally talked to Christina about her plans for a City Hall wedding but the more I heard of her story with Larry, the clearer the answer was: Christina + Larry + officiant on the 2 year anniversary of the day and place they met while hiking 22 miles down the Wissahickon Valley Trail. I felt so honored to be there to witness such a ten ...

Philadelphia Bridals Photographer | Philadelphia Art Museum | Vanessa
Gather round, you Northerners. Let me tell you about a special kind of photography session called Bridals. Quite simply, these are pictures taken before the wedding of the beautiful bride in her beautiful wedding dress. It’s a great opportunity to get more use out of that gown and see how it feels to wear it, walk in it, sit in it, and twirl in it. Knowing it it’ll ride up (or down) is great for dealing with alterations before the big day. And if you tie it in with your hair and makeup trial, bonus! (If you’re already married, don’t fret – you can always do an after session/love shoot or a trash the dress and wear that fabulous frock again!) ...
