I know this has nothing to do with photography and we had nothing to do with the making of this, but it’s too cute not to share! Amanda and I will be photographing their wedding (and engagement shoot) next year, and we cannot wait! Mike is an animation film maker and made this short film for Sarah to ask her to marry him. Enjoy!
Teresa and Nuno got married in the Newark, NJ. Their wedding day made for such an inspiring, creative, genuinely sweet wedding. Every detail was amazing. And their warmth and love for each other made photographing them a pleasure.
Thank you Teresa and Nuno for having me be part of your wedding! And thank you to my favorite girl and team member, Monika Broz for having me second shoot!
Anna and Jeff got married at the Seaview Hotel in Galloway, NJ. The day was filled with lots of love, really funny toasts, and dancing with family with friends. My fellow Love Me Do partner, Carina, helped me photograph their day.
Thank you Anna and Jeff for having me be part of your wedding!
Carly and Kyle’s eco-friendly and 100% vegan wedding was held at the distinctive Valley Forge Freedom Center on a beautiful autumn day. “We really wanted our wedding to be a celebration of love and a joining of all facets of our family as well as a good representation of who we are as people. We wanted our care for animals and the environment to shine througha bit without being overt.” They picked the venue because of its close resemblence to the backyard of the groom’s grandmother. They were married under a beautiful wedding arch (made by the bride’s step-father) in a ceremony that was not tied to any particular religions but did include a charming Quaker tradition, which has all the guests sign a handmade wedding certificate as witnesses to the day. After exchanging their own vows and being pronounced husband and wife, you could hear Carly estatically cheering as they walked into the distance. For the reception Ludwig’s Gourmet Catering provided a delicious vegan meal. Locally grown apples were used as place cards for tables with kale as centerpieces, and little pots with basil for favors. The flowers used in the bouquets made by Blue Moon Florists and were all in season. The music was provided by our friends at Hi-Society Entertainment and was stellar as usual. Carly and Kyle tell us “Our favorite part of the day was having a celebration that was representative of us as a couple and something that paid tribute to our beliefs and brought people together in a meaningful, fun way. We were both so happy to marry our best friend.” We couldn’t agree more; this wedding was perfect fit for such an adorable couple!
Leslie and Seamus got married at the beautiful Valley Green Inn in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia. They had their first look in Rittenhouse Square followed by a stroll around the street of Philadelphia. We then stopped by Lemon Hill on the way to Valley Green. I had an absolute wonderful time photographing them and their friends and family.
Thank you Leslie and Seamus for having me be part of your day!
Tony and Mary’s late September wedding was held in the picturesque Holy Saviour Catholic Church in Linwood PA. Having originally met in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the ceremony was heart felt and followed by a spirited receiving line. From there the couple and bridal party headed to the charming grounds of Swathmore College to have their photos taken. With the couples involvement in theater, the group was very animated and included scenarios of a zombie apocalypse and reenactments from the Godfather in some of the shots. This flare for drama carried into the reception at the quaint gastro-pub meets wine cellar that is D’Ignazios Towne House Restaurant in Media. Halfway through their first dance, Mary tore off the bottom tier of a 2nd wedding dress (by Unique Vintage; ceremony dress by Bella Sera Bridal in Maryland) and broke into a swing dance routine. From that point on the dance floor was packed for the rest of the night with their friends and family in celebration of their new union. Mary tells us, “With being in school, and Tony traveling for work, it was hard to find time for a lot of personal touches, and I was so glad for the Etsy site to find artists to help. That’s where we got our invitations, the notepads for our time capsule, a maid of honor gift, and our cake topper (Cake by Maria’s Prime Time Bakery) – just to name a few things!”. All in all the wedding was a fusion of tradition with a little quirk and a lot of fun, there is no doubt that a good time was had by all!
