Tendenza Wedding Reception with Waterworks Ceremony

Natalie and Numa are a perfect match for one another and their entire wedding day really showcased their fabulous personalities. Natalie’s attention to detail was visible in every part of her wedding, from the ceremony at Waterworks to the Tendenza wedding reception. We started the day at the Sofitel in Philadelphia where I started photographing the girls while Lincoln stuck with the guys. Natalie and the girls got their hair and makeup done upstairs while everyone gushed over Natalie’s divine details; from her shoes to her garter to the little champagne glass charms with each bridesmaids’ name on them – she did not miss a thing! From the Sofitel the bridal party went to Waterworks for the ceremony. It was a beautiful setup with the Philadelphia Art Museum visible in the background and beautiful columns segregating the ceremony space. The ceremony had live music and delicious lemonade for the guests to enjoy. It was a very fun ceremony and you could tell that Natalie and Numa’s personal connection to their officiant really made it all the more special for her to be marrying them. They triumphantly marched back down the aisle as man and wife and were greeted by their loving family and friends immediately! We hung out at Waterworks, taking some gorgeous shots of the bridal party before heading to the posh reception taking place at Tendenza. Upon arriving at Tendenza, the cocktail hour was just nearing an end. The reception space was a stunning combination of different textures, colors, and there were personalized table numbers that were actually special places to Natalie and Numa. It was a really cute way of once again making their details really personal! The centerpieces were gorgeous and lush and it was obvious that Tendenza was the perfect reception venue for such a city-loving couple! We had such a blast photographing their wedding day and they were just the sweetest couple. Congratulations to Natalie and Numa!
