Vie Wedding in Philadelphia by Cescaphe | Jodi & Gordon

Where do I even start with Jodi and Gordon’s Vie wedding? They’re one of those perfect couples that probably make strangers jealous when they’re walking around town. They know exactly how to make each other happy and it shows. Lincoln and I came into the day ready to go and we were happy to see some familiar faces, as we took photos of baby Max and Mia, Jodi’s nephew and niece, a few months ago. The day kicked off at Le Meridien. If you have never been to this hotel, you are required to check it out on your next trip to Philadelphia! We found some gorgeous photo ops including the beautiful original brick wall in the 75-foot atrium – where we did Jodi and Gordon’s first look. It was such a touching moment and a very special way to begin the day. The ceremony and reception took place at the Vie wedding venue by Cescaphe. Over the years we’ve come to learn that the Cescaphe event group never ever disappoints, and Vie was looking stunning, of course, and the tables absolutely sparkled. We have worked with Cescaphe at many of their venues and let me tell you – they know what they are doing! It is ALWAYS a pleasure and they put on the most gorgeous, over-the-top events.  Jodi and Gordon’s wedding was no exception – everything was done perfectly. They had Masquerade, a 12-piece band/DJ/MC, and it was the icing on the cake (by the way – their cake definitely earned a spot in our hall of fame. We thought it was going to be from some New York boutique cake shop, but it turns out Cescaphe actually made it!). Masquerade was absolutely amazing and really got the crowd involved – the dance floor was packed the entire night! We highly recommend them and it really created such a great atmosphere for the reception. We ended the night with some sparkler fun before trekking home and passing out as soon as we hit the bed.

Aronimink Wedding | Nina & Rob

Nina and Rob were previous clients of ours who had a vow renewal and quite a glamorous Aronimink wedding reception to celebrate with their family and friends. We loved photographing them the first time and this time around was even more fun since we were with them the entire day and really got to know their families, including their lovely daughter, Karen Grace. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception at Aronimink to follow was an elegant affair to remember! The luxurious golf club was the perfect setting for the event and provided a beautiful backdrop for the evening’s events. I definitely have to give a shout out to Nina’s wedding planner, Judith Campbell from Campbell Studios, as I’m sure that Nina would agree the day went as smooth as can be – with tons of help from Judith! She was great and after working with her, we highly recommend her services. We wish Nina and Rob the very best and were so happy to be apart of their special day!

Brantwyn Estate Wedding | Afton & Joe

Afton and Joe chose one of our favorite venues for their ceremony and reception, the regal Brantwyn Estate wedding venue in Wilmington, Delaware. Their wedding was so cute and Afton put so many creative touches into the day, she even made the bouquets and boutonnières herself! The ceremony was in the lower garden and afterwards the newlyweds made their grand entrance onto the back lawn from inside the mansion. Afton and Joe were so sweet and genuine that it was easy to capture the personality of the couple. Here are some of our favorites from the day.

West Chester Engagement Pictures | Sara & Shawn

Sara and Shawn are lucky enough to live right in the heart of downtown West Chester and they knew it would be the perfect location for their engagement session. Let me start off by giving you a bit of backstory on this super-star couple…Shawn was on Wheel of Fortune. He WON. Then he proposed to Sara that night! The episode aired a couple of months later and we were lucky enough to see him answer that winning puzzle on tv! Right off the bat, we knew we were going to have a great session – Sara and Shawn are playful, fun, and easy going. We managed to choose a perfect day for a West Chester Engagement session, because all the gorgeous Magnolia trees were blossoming and the streets of West Chester looked picturesque….literally! Sara and Shawn also introduced us to West Chester’s Everhart Park, which was so serene. We had such a blast and it made us super excited for their August wedding at the stunning Greystone Hall. Stay tuned for those gorgeous wedding photos later this summer!

Villanova Chapel Ceremony & Desmond Hotel Wedding | Amy & Rob

You know you’ve picked the right place to tie the knot when you have to reserve it years in advance; as is the case if you want to have a Villanova Chapel wedding ceremony. Amy & Rob are a special couple to us for many reasons, not the least of which is their dedication to serving our country. We did learn one important lesson: the military knows how to party. The dance floor at the Desmond Hotel reception was crazier than a scene out of Footloose (many thanks for the incredible Don Eaton Band). Amy & Rob’s wedding also broke a personal record for us: most sword wielding people in a room at one time.
