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.

So you’re getting hitched; congrats! Perhaps you’ve heard of events called ‘bridal shows’. The concept is this: couples (and sometimes their supportive others) come to an awesome venue to check out a smattering of wedding professionals – bakers, invitation designers, DJs, bands, florists, transportation companies, travel companies, wedding coordinators, and photographers. There is usually a fashion show or wandering models displaying some lovely bridal attire. It’s a good time and it gives you the chance to check out a small sample of what is out there and ask a ton of questions without feeling any pressure.I bring this up because I’ll be ...
