Kristen and Jonny were married at Peche at Sherman Mills. It was our first time shooting at Peche and we loved every minute of it! The space is such a great venue, allowing the couple to be as creative with their decor as they wanted to be. Even though it was close to freezing outside, Kristen and Jonny braved the cold and allowed us to get some great shots!
Kristen put a lot of effort into all the details for the wedding. She worked closely with printer-maker, Will Stichter, on the letter pressed invitations, RSVP cards, and programs. Maggie Machledt constructed the photobooth backdrop and seating cards. Flowers were designed and assembled by Tanti Lina of Papertini. We also stopped in to our close friends, Kate Kaman and Joel Erland’s studio to take a few pictures of the couple. The night as a whole ended up being a great celebration of friends and family getting together to welcome the joining of these two individuals, as well as a really fun party!
Pictures of the couple’s engagement session can be seen here: Jonny and Kristen’s Engagement.
Jen and Donald were married at the Dolce Hotel in King of Prussia. It was an intimate ceremony and dinner reception following with family and close friends. Everyone was in the best of spirits on this beautiful day, and Jennifer looked amazing in her dress and veil! The whole event was very classy yet casual. I loved how Jen and Donald were able to go around and spend a little bit of time with each guest that arrived.. something that’s hard to do when you have a large guest list! It showed that they really valued each person and how they contribute to their lives together.
Thanks Jen and Donald for having us photograph your wedding!
Nicole and Jason got married at the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia. After the ceremony, we strolled around the beautiful fields, colorful leaves, and old barns in a nearby park. The reception followed at Normandy Farms. I had a great time photographing them!
Gaelyn and John were married a couple of months ago and were our contest winners of this year for free wedding photography. When we arrived on the west coast, we wanted to get a feel for the couple’s personality and also a view of some of the landscape. We agreed on doing a “day-before shoot” and the couple showed us around the area. We absolutely loved shooting in California and hope to do it again soon! So any west coast couples out there looking for a photographer, just because we’re based in Philadelphia doesn’t mean we wouldn’t be available… we love to travel!
Thanks again to Gaelyn and John for participating in the contest and congratulations on winning! We had a blast with you guys!
And of course, thanks to Rock n Roll Bride for hosting the contest!
I apologize for this post being late, it ended up never being published after we were finished with it. whoops!
Casey and Ari were married at Stroudsmoor Country Inn on probably the most beautiful day of the year. You could not have asked for a better day, and Casey looked amazing! Taking photos of the two of them together was such a breeze because every time they looked at each other, it was evident that they were in love. The whole day was fine tuned to their individual style and unique personalities. A lot of friends and family pitched in to make this event perfect and they definitely succeeded! Also, I cant forget to mention the great DJs of the evening, Roots and Groove, whom we love working with!
Thanks Casey and Ari for having us there to photograph your wedding,!
Mo and Chris were married at Ridley Creek State Park, one of our most favorite places to photograph weddings. What was a special treat was that we’ve never photographed there in the fall, and I must say it was stunning there! The couple decided on a vintage 40’s feel and look to the wedding, and everyone looked so good! Flowers were purchased off Etsy from seller, JoeNet2. Even though the wedding vibe was un-traditional, there were many traditions that went into the day. For instance, the diamond tennis bracelet Mo wore was her grandmother’s, that is given to each woman of the family to wear when she gets married. The couple picked Ridley Creek because of the natural beauty of the venue. Also, Chris is a stone mason by trade and loves historic stone buildings. There’s a romantic feel to thinking about who made the building, the skill it took to cut each stone, the history.
And a little bit more from Mo, the bride:
“My favorite part of the day was obviously any time I spent with Chris. Being able to sneak away to smooch for pictures was awesome, it was great to just look at him and reflect on the reason we were there and enjoy the peace of the woods together. “
Thanks Mo and Chris for having us there to photograph your wedding!
