Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Modo Mio |Kelly + Christopher

Wedding

Kelly and Chris married almost 4 years to the day they met.  She was in Philly for the summer and the two hit it off.  They strongly considered eloping but decided on something a little larger and more personal instead.

The day was wet and dreary but I swear you’d never know it from these two.  I met with Kelly at the Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia to photograph her (and her hilarious friends and sisters) before meeting up with Chris in the lobby.  Her look was so perfectly classic with her vibrant blue eyes, bright red lips, porcelain skin, and a fun A-line strapless dress with pockets.

We ubered it over to the Philadelphia Wedding Chapel as I grilled them on their relationship.

They are totally practical people.  It was while they were vacationing in the Caribbean when they decided to make things legit.  So they got an engagement ring there and started planning.  You must take a close look at this engagement ring again (on right).  Tell me it’s not incredible and completely unique.

The ceremony was both light-hearted and drew a few tears.  You could tell that the people in the room were the very most important ones to Kelly and Chris.  The happiness was palpable.

We left the chapel to some rain and made our way over to the next stop: Broad Street.  We must have gotten there right when the sky opened up and drenched us.  They were such great sports about the entire thing.  Cars honked and onlookers took pictures of the crazy trio in the median.

The dinner reception was held at Modo Mio.  It made perfect sense to them: they live right down the street and it is their regular spot for a delicious dinner.  They shared their first dance to “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles.  Totally appropriate given the day.

The rest of the evening was filled with dancing with their parents, plenty of emotional speeches, hand selected beverages, and course after course after course of amazing Italian food.

It was such a beautiful (damp) day and I’m so honored that I was invited in to be a part of it.  Congrats, Kelly and Chris!

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Wedding in Carmel with Julie Cheshire
The other week I shot a wedding with the lovely Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography down in Carmel at Mission Ranch. As you will see, Mission Ranch is just beautiful.Loren got ready in the honeymoon cottage. It was an adorable little house just large enough for all of the girls to get gussied up. Loren is simply beautiful and I love, love, love her hairstyle. The flower girl was cute as a button. That face in the lower left was when she saw Loren’s dress for the first time. She looked like a little princess herself.The ceremony site was down a path and over a bridge with a spectacular and private view of a field and the bay in the distan ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Bartram’s Garden | Mika + Joe
I have met many low key, laid back brides but none of them hold a candle to Mika. She and Joe were married at Philadelphia's Bartram’s Garden with 10 of their closest family members in attendance.The oil lamp at their ceremony table was the same one her parent’s had at their wedding.Just a few highlights about Mika:She ordered her dress online and hoped for the best. It arrived a few days before the wedding. It was too long so she took scissors to the bottom of it the night before the wedding. Bonus fact: she wore her mom’s petticoat slip since the dress was a bit too sheer.The morning of the wedding she went to the salon and asked f ...
