Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | DoubleTree Hotel | Becca + Nick

Wedding

If Snow White were real, I’m fairly certain she would look like Becca. Becca was absolutely gorgeous and her wedding to Nick was filled with personal touches, unseasonably warm weather (a few days before Frankenstorm, no less), and a group that knew how to rock it out like it was their job.

I arrived at the Philadelphia DoubleTree Hotel to spend time with Becca and the ladies before the ceremony.

Nick wrote a note for Becca to read before the ceremony. It included his famous doodles of them. Completely adorable!

Please note Becca’s “something blue” toenails and pearls borrowed from her new mother in law (who had an emergency appendectomy a few days before the wedding and still looked amazing).

This little one is going to be big trouble if he isn’t already. See that impish grin and golden curls. Oh, dear.

The team loaded into the limo and were off to St. John the Evangelist Church. It was such a gorgeous Catholic church and the sermon was about gifts – giving the gift of life and love to each other, gifts that come from nowhere else but from the hearts of two people who have fallen in love.

The bridal party headed out to the Azalea Garden and the Philadelphia Art Museum after the church. The colors were just popping off of the trees. It was beautiful.

Before heading back into the DoubleTree for cocktail hour, we had to take the classic Broad Street shot. I don’t care how many times I see this, it’s still stunning. A beautiful woman in a white dress, her handsome groom, and one of Philly’s most iconic buildings.

Escort cards were attached to bottles of 100% pure Vermont maple syrup made by Rebecca’s family for five generations.

Becca and Nick danced their first dance to “Amazed” by Lonestar. As I learned in their Manayunk engagement session, Nick makes the best faces.

The reception was a great time. I think just about everyone was on the dancefloor.

You already know Colleen and Karl from their winning Best of 2012 wedding picture and their Bryn Mawr engagement session with adorable puppy, Samson. I think it’s about time you saw more of their marvelous wedding at the Bellevue at the very end of December. This wedding was beyond incredible. The entire thing, starting with Colleen’s 1920’s vintage do, seemed to be made for black and white and sepia.It was snowing hard that morning but the flurries had completely disappeared by the time I arrived on the scene for the getting ready pictures. The ladies were prepping in the suite and Colleen, 24 weeks pregnant at the time, was blissful and ...

I want to tell you about the wedding I shot the other weekend with the talented Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography. Or rather, I want to tell you about the couple: Karen & Tom.Karen and Tom were fabulous. I really enjoyed being a part of their wedding day. Throughout the day we pieced together the long and tangled relationship between these two lovebirds. They met each other when they were in their teens while working at Round Table Pizza. They were in love and dated for a while but eventually Karen left to go to college in Boston. Fast forward about fifteen or so years, Karen comes back to town! They meet up again at a friend's h ...

New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Brooklake Country Club | Alyssa + David
Alyssa and David’s wedding was a very special one for me.  Call me hormonal because I was two weeks from giving birth but this one had all the feels.  The Brooklake Country Club served as the backdrop to the wonderful day. The ladies primped in a lovely bridal suite.  Alyssa wore earrings created from David’s late mother’s earrings and her mother’s necklace. A foreign friend was around for support. The gentlemen got ready one door away from the ladies.  I’m digging their custom rocks glasses. David’s wedding band was one of the most unique and sentimental I’ve ever seen.  His own mother’s wedding band was part of hi ...
