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.
Hard to believe it’s been over a year since I met with Kevin & Brittany to discuss their wedding day at the Dunkin Donuts nearby them on Aramingo Ave. At the time they were still value checking, and I handled each of their questions with experience and confidence, but also a high interest in being the one to cover their day. The harder the purchase, the more I want to sell my service. Fortunately, they left interested and later followed up with commitment. I thanked them, and well all awaited their day to come.
June 17th seemed far off at the time, but as with weddings, once the year turns, we’re a few months/weeks away, it rapidly approaches. I got there for the groom & bridal prep, which always makes for great footage of them both getting ready, but it also assists in ‘telling the story’. Sure this story was 10 years in the making, but we’ll condense it a bit. Then it was on to the Pen Ryn Estate, a very nice location with a very accomodating staff & maitre de. The weather was slight overcast, but made for a very nice outdoor ceremony. Also nice, a beautiful butterfly release. Then we ventured the grounds for photo sessions for both family and bridal party. Lastly, we went inside for the reception with lovely first dance and parent dances took place, then two great toasts were given by the Maid of Honor and Best Man.
Oh, and there was a wee bit of dancing towards the end of the day:)
Light at the end of the tunnel
So congrats to Jennifer & Brian on their Friday wedding day, a beautiful fall wedding beginning at Maternity BVM Church located in Northeast Philly. From there we headed up to Twining Hall in Trevose where their guests danced the night away. Including Brian when his fave song came on, Macklemore’s Thrift Shop.
Having said that, it’s time to go all out, for the finale of Kelly & Brett’s West Chester Wedding. While I’ll still have 3 edits to complete (the forgotten work of a wedding videographer), it’s been a great ride 2015. Ideally I’ll close out the edits for all couples by the end of the calendar year, and have satisfied couples who were glad of their videographer decision. I finally had a year in which I shot many on my own, as opposed to shooting for national wedding vendors & studios. Not that there’s anything wrong with going thru them, I just much prefer to take the time & care to edit and deliver the weddings myself, as I was the one who attended, met the couple, enjoyed the day & remember the overall wedding theme & vibe of the day.
That said, Adios!
