Congrats to Heather & Albert, on their November wedding day! They managed to fit it in, albeit on a cold day it was before the December 2017 cold snap really kicked in (0 degree temperatures). A lovely wedding with great guests at the Waterfall Room on Southampton Rd, located in Northeast Philly.
In what was my last wedding of the year, I was glad to knock in out of the park. Brooke & Woodrow had a great fall day for an October Wedding in Philadelphia. Prep was done at Hotel Monaco, and the ceremony & reception and The Downtown Club. We decided for better coverage to hire a 2nd shooter, something I offer in my services as an added feature, and I got to work with a photographer friend Tanya Rose Peth. Don’t let the term “Photographer” scare you, she’s schooled in the video field and nailed every shot I had asked of her to capture.
Congrats to Christine & Ralph for having their awesome Philly autumn wedding. Starting off at the Morris House Hotel we did bridal prep in their lovely bridal suite. Onwards to Philip Neri Church in Queens Village for a lovely Catholic ceremony. On a beautiful (and busy) fall day, they took the limo on up to South Broad Street, for a shot of the couple with City Hall as our backdrop, “Hello Honkers!”. I got the chance to work with the laid back but skilled Jon Oler on a bridal party shoot at the nearby Washington Park, making for a nice setting of greenery for the backdrop, as well as red brick.
Lastly it’s back to Morris House Hotel for the cocktail hour and reception. Introductions and First Dance started off the evening, followed up by toasts by Ralphs brother & best man, Christines 2 Maids of Honor, and a ‘Romano Familia’ toasts by Ralphs sister, welcoming Christine to La Familia Italia. Or something like that. Guests enjoyed themselves and the outdoor setting led for plenty to be out on the dance floor getting their Uptown Funk on. Great autumn night for a wedding.
Congrats Ralph & Christine!
This wedding was a scorcher Rebecca & Brian chose to have their lovely Sunday wedding at the Mendenhall Inn, in suburban Chadds Ford. A lovely location with a sunlight Ceremony reception and cocktail hour, with the reception a close walking distance away. Very convenient for guests (and videographers).
I got to work with Amy & Wenty on their wedding day thru a mutual friend, photographer Josh DeHonney which I was excited about, because Josh is a great photographer, and I know, going in he has a vision for the day. The full day took place at the Windsor Ballroom which makes for a much relaxed day for the bride and groom, and can be convenient to wedding guests. A slight and inconveiniently timed rain moved the ceremony indoors, and from their the party started with the reception. On this Sunday wedding, guests forgot about work the next day and danced the night away.
Congrats to Dayna & Don for their great Philly Wedding. Loved how the Eagles theme was merged in, yet totally was not made into being tacky. Stated at the Ukrainian Church, then a quick photo session at the Art Museum for photos behind the museum (a result of the front being closed due to the Democratic National Convention.
