Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | St. Augustine + Courtyard Marriott | Jamie + John

Wedding

It was a chilly but sunny November Philly day when Jamie and John tied the knot. The church, colors, and wedding guests (wedding party especially) were nothing short of fabulous! I had a hunch this was going to be a fun time when I met with Jamie and John for their engagement session at Villanova University (where they met at school) and learned of the pair’s love of movies.

John and his men were armed with Ghostbusters gear pre-ceremony.

I love this shot of Jamie’s mom seeing her all done up!

John and the guys channeling a little Reservoir Dogs…

Their Catholic ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Augustine Catholic Church.

This church was beautifully ornate with a drool-worthy balcony that allowed for incredible images of the ceremony below.

The wedding pictures were especially important to Jamie and John (bless them!) and they allowed for plenty of time and opportunities for great images. First stop: Race Street Pier.

Then the bridal party rallied for pictures at Franklin Square with wonderful fall colors of the carousel in the background.

Our last stop before the reception was on the classically Philadelphia scene of City Hall from Broad Street. I swear this view is spectacular in any season at any time of day in any weather.

We finally ended at the Courtyard Marriott Downtown for Jamie and John’s reception.

As homage to Jamie’s Main heritage, favors were maple syrup in beautiful engraved bottles.

They shared their first dance to “Longing to Belong” by Eddie Vedder.

And then the ruckus started. Dance moves like you wouldn’t believe and so, so, so much laughter!

Jamie and John, I can’t thank you enough for inviting me to be a part of such a wonderful day. So now dish details (and pics!) of your Australian honeymoon!

I’m falling harder then
I’ve ever fell before
Im falling fast while hoping
I’ll land in your arms
Cause all my time is spent here
Longing to belong to you

Megan and Brian’s wedding make my little heart sing! I was smitten with them from the moment I met them via Skype one night and then in person at their engagement session (hi, Jake!) when they came down from New York to Philly.This wedding was all about the chicness of black and white with the whimsy/fun (and boy was it fun!) of sparkles, or, as Brian called them, sprinkles. With a wedding venue at the Please Touch Museum, you know you’re dealing with people who don’t take themselves too seriously.Megan’s details had just the right amount of bling.

Kate and Dakota had the rustic wedding people dream about when they think of having it in their own backyard.  Mixed with the perfect weather, it was both beautiful and comfortably familiar.  Everything happened at her family’s farmhouse in Tabernacle, New Jersey. Kate and the ladies got ready upstairs.  They wore matching robes as they primped. The wedding day garb was almost as comfortable – the bride and every bridesmaid wore cowboy boots. The groom and groomsmen weren’t quite as lucky though they did get to hang out longer and spent some time admiring Dakota’s Triumph motorcycle that he customized himself. ...
