Media, PA Wedding Photographer | Wallingford Community Arts Center | Jackie + Geoff

Wedding

Why pick one or two wedding colors when you can have them ALL?!  I love me some black and white photography but this wedding day can’t be contained with monochrome.  Jackie’s thought was, “I can’t possibly narrow it down to one or two colors.”

Jackie and Geoff’s sunny, rainbow-tastic wedding has some of the most exuberant details I’ve ever seen.  And on top of that, Jackie handmade it all!  It was a personal wedding that was perfectly them.

Their life and home has been consumed with different colored pieces of felt for a while.  She created over 300 flowers and that was just the beginning.

Can we stop for a second and take in this fabulous hot pink, bejeweled heels?!

She let the colors of the day play center stage though her column gown with keyhole back and detachable train was pretty awesome.

Jackie and Geoff shared their first look on that sunny day at the Wallingford Community Art Center.

It was a beautiful day to stroll around the whimsical gardens and interesting old mansion.

Geoff had his own flair with bowtie, special boutonniere, and socks.

Yes, there were handmade boutonnieres for each of the 40 guests.blog-215-JackieGeoff

Jackie’s style was gorgeous.  She added a sweet birdcage veil and the delicate jacket her late mother made for her own wedding.

The self-uniting Quaker ceremony in the round involved loving advice from everyone in attendance.  The first speaker held a large ball of white yarn with tiny color pieces all along it’s 600+ yards length.  The ball was tossed from one person to another and across the circle, creating a web surrounding them.  I had never seen anything like it.

Instead of a bouquet, Jackie carried a colorful staff (“stick”) that she created for the occasion.

Of course the reception was just as vibrant.  Painted vases with handwritten quotes and several felt blooms each adorned the horseshoe-shaped dining table.

Jackie and Geoff led off the party with their first dance to “Pot of Gold” by Robby Hecht.

The guest “book” was a unique sheet of textured, rainbow paper that Jackie has pained white circles on for guests to sign.  It was a beautiful keepsake of the day.

It was a lovely evening and they were showered by so much love.  Congratulations on everything!

While I’m in the kitchen cooking up a pot pie
You’re just watching with your pretty blue eyes
And the kids are singing our favorite tune
My pot of gold is my life with you

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Atrium at the Curtis Center | Jennifer + Mark
I think Jennifer and I exchanged close to 150 emails in the year + leading up to her wedding. I imagine that’s pretty much the way things have to be when you’re planning a wedding from a different continent. I loved our weekly/daily exchanges and the end result was absolutely worth all of the planning. I saw her only a few times before the wedding, once for Jennifer and Mark’s engagement session at Longwood Gardens (I’m still itching for a pair of those back-seam stockings myself!).The wedding was a smash success! The day was sunny and perfect.The wedding party got ready at the super fashionable Hotel Monaco right at Independence Hall.Jen ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Morris House Hotel | Abby + Ryan
Abby and Ryan are self-proclaimed geeks. They bonded over video games and nerding out when they met at Drexel (she challenged him to beer pong at a party). Abby, an English major, along with her mother, conceptualized a wedding that could have come straight from the pages of a book. The sweet pink, green, and ivory sprinkled throughout the day were gorgeous. The setting was the incomparable Morris House Hotel which couldn’t have been more perfect as a setting that makes you feel like you’ve snuck into some beautiful garden Narnia in the middle of Philadelphia. Abby paid homage to her grandmother with a choker using her cameo and was a gift ...

Chester County Wedding Photographer | People’s Light & Theater | Emily + Leonardo
I’m pretty sure that I could photograph Emily and Leonardo’s wedding every weekend and still never get tired of them or their spectacular day. It was happy, truly and utterly blissful. Throughout the day Emily’s refrain was, “I’m so happy. So, so happy”. I don’t think that they can be near each other without breaking into dance and, really, what is better than that?I started shooting at Emily’s mom’s house in Wayne, PA. I honestly imagined Emily in something very simple but her lace gown was just perfect for her. It was light and fit her like a glove and she looked completely stunning.Her something old was her great aunt’s diamond brace ...
