Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Glen Foerd Mansion | Jen + Joe

Wedding

We had a few days of strange 80+ degree days and then came the day for Jen and Joe’s wedding and Glen Foerd Mansion. It was chilly and damp, which really only made the grand estate feel more proper somehow. The beautiful venue on the Delaware River was vibrant with green and overflowing with history and charm. It’s a place Jen has known practically her whole life.

Despite coordinating a wedding and four very little ones, Jen looked radiant.

They had a first look before the ceremony. It was great to wander the grounds and spend some quiet time together.

As I said, Glen Foerd is beautiful and oh-so-charming.

The ceremony was held in the drawing room, just the right size to hold the couple’s intimate 35 guests. This room with lush red tapestries, gilded mirrors and chandeliers, and piano player in the background felt perfect. Governor Ed Rendell, a close family friend, presided over the ceremony.

There were little ones everywhere. The couple opted for a low key dinner reception and I stayed through the cocktail hour to get a few images of the day’s revelry.

I have known Courtney for a long, long time. We went to elementary school together. When I moved back to Philadelphia from San Francisco a few years ago, she welcomed me with open arms and let me know that I would be photographing her wedding, whenever that may be to whomever that may be. I guess it was about a year or so later that she met Ryan while they were both working at Campbell’s (yeah, of Campbell’s soup). Check out this post for their engagement session in New Jersey.On the day of their wedding, I showed up at Courtney’s parents’ house in Ardmore. Courtney was so excited to show me, and I was so excited to see, her incredible m ...

Destination Wedding Photographer | Cape Cod | Elise + Eddie
Will I travel for weddings?  Hell yes I will.  Especially if it’s the wedding of two incredible people like Elise and Eddie.  They were married at Chatham Bars Inn, a beautiful beachfront resort in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  This was a pretty big deal.  I’ve known Eddie for years and he is a Philly boy at heart.  I photographed his sister’s wedding at the Ritz Carlton – Philadelphia just a couple of years ago.  Elise’s heart resides in Cape Cod and she has always known that it had to be the Cape.  Her family has vacationed in the area since the 60s and she couldn’t imagine saying “I do” anywhere else. The weather that week was all over the pl ...
