Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | All Saints Catholic Church | Stacy & Joe

Wedding

Not many couples get the chance to get married twice. Two venues, two dresses, two parties, two cities, and two completely different weddings (don’t worry, same partners). Stacy and Joe are just that lucky. To tell you the truth, I feel the luckiest of all because I got to see them for their engagement session around the Art Museum, another session with Stacy, and both of their weddings.

The first was on July 4th in Philadelphia (pretty perfect, no?). Joe’s entire family lives within a few blocks of each other. And this is a big family. Joe is one of 10 and then you’ve got all of the spouses, nieces, nephews… It was so important that the wedding be based among all of this love and take place at the family’s church (right down the street, of course).

Stacy got ready at Joe’s sister’s house. Stacy had some beautiful details including blue Badgley Mischka shoes, a borrowed pearl bracelet from her mom, a veil borrowed from her godmother, another bracelet from Joe’s great aunt, and gorgeous diamond earrings that Joe gave her as a wedding gift.

Stacy, as always, looked incredible. The ultimate happy, nervous, gorgeous bride.

Joe was getting ready a block or so away at his parents’ house, all decked out for the wedding and Independence Day.

We gathered at All Saints Catholic Church.

Guests were invited to don red, white, and blue for the occasion. Stacy’s bouquet was a fantastic combination accented by a brooch from Joe’s grandmother, a horseshoe necklace, symbolic of Stacy’s grandfather, “Poppy”, and a swath of fabric from her grandmother’s wedding dress. I loved how intimately everyone was represented.

Do you remember how sweltering it was this past Fourth of July? It was about 95 degrees with a heat index over 100. According to Stacy, the day was to be 77 and sunny. Not so much. So it was slightly warm inside the ornate but un-air-conditioned church where Stacy and Joe said their nuptials for the first time that week.

We grabbed a few family shots at the altar and I took Stacy and Joe for a quick walk for some pictures of them before I bid them adieu until the second wedding a few days later in Connecticut.

Stacy will be the first to admit that she is totally spoiled. And it’s kind of true. The terrible thing is that Stacy is one of the sweetest, kindest, most loving people I’ve ever met so she pretty much deserves it all. This includes two weddings for her and Joe! (Check out the pictures from their Philadelphia wedding here and their engagement session here.) Joe is a city boy from Philly but Stacy considers herself a country girl at heart. It was important to Stacy that she have a wedding that represented the Connecticut side of her life, where she grew up with her very tight family. She wanted something loose and casual but still ...

New Year’s Eve is always a crazy , magical day for weddings.  There is an electricity around the city and more excitement in guests than just your regular Saturday wedding.  Something about the extra bite in the air and knowing that the party is going to last after midnight makes NYE weddings one of my favorite! I ended 2014 with Ann and Mike for their beautiful Philadelphia celebration.  The ladies (dressed in glamorous black) got ready at the Loews hotel.  Ann, a grade A planner had the details and the day worked out perfectly.  She had thought of everything (down to the something borrowed shamrock pin on her bouquet).  The day was sunny ...
