HOTEL DU VILLAGE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

By | Weddings | One Comment

 

You may remember Carrie and Pat from their NYC engagement session last summer. The happy couple lives together in New York where they first met playing rec soccer on opposite teams. I was fortunate enough to meet Carrie & Pat last July for their engagement photos and got to see the neighborhood that they call home. Fast forward to this spring, Carrie and Pat are finally married!! Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful (and luckily much cooler in temperature than their engagement session). The day went off without a hitch not only because Carrie and Pat are awesome, but so was their venue. Their Hotel du Village wedding was flawless! The ceremony and reception spaces, the bridal suite, groom’s prep location, and grounds were all available for us to use and did not disappoint.

After the first look and some windy portraits guests started to arrive for the ceremony. The ceremony was heartfelt, sentimental and gave everyone gathered around had an inside look into Carrie and Pat’s history and love story. After cocktail hour we were able to steal the newlyweds for a few additional minutes of portraits. We couldn’t was the amazing sunset that was happening! The rest of the night is history! Guests partied along with Modern Luxe band who had everyone up and dancing all night! And before the sparkler exit, guests were even treated to late night snacks like mini pork roll, egg, & cheese sandwiches.

I have loved working with Carrie and Pat over this past year! They have been so kind, easy-going and genuinely wonderful. They even gave me a few bags of their favorite coffee as a gift and if that doesn’t tell you how awesome these two are, I don’t know what will.

Enjoy a small look into their beautiful Hotel du Village wedding!

Thank you for having me, I’m honored to have been apart of this very special evening!

UNION TRUST WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

If there is anything you should take away from this Union Trust wedding it’s that you don’t ever need to apologize for being a little extra! Jaime meticulously planned her wedding day and admitted that some details may have been over the top but it was flawless and stunning! Jaime and Anthony celebrated among close friends and family in the best way and didn’t let the rainy weather get in their way of anything. We started the day at the Hotel Monaco for prep and the first look and then made our way to the Blue Cross Riverrink for photos. While we waited for our own private cabin we hung around the lodge for a bit to take photos and of course grab some crab fries! The rain stopped just in time for a few photos around the river rink and along the Delaware River. Then it was time to head to Union Trust to meet for family photos and the ceremony! The space at Union Trust is stunning on its own but the flower wall provided by Nicol Floral Designs and the centerpieces by Precious Petals made it breathtaking. The ceremony and reception were perfect thanks to all of the staff at Finley Catering and each of the other vendors listed. We ended the night with an amazing dessert display complete with waffles, ice cream and much more. Congratulations Jaime and Anthony! I wish you both a life filled with nothing but happiness!

HOTEL DUPONT WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

There is something that I love about self-proclaimed “awkward” couples! Alex and Erik claimed to be awkward in front of the camera but really they were sweet and fun. We first met at my studio and was so glad when they chose me as their photographer – they were definitely people I knew I would love to work with. Knowing that their December would be artificially lit due to the early sunset, we tried to have a sunny engagement session but instead were met with overcast skies. Regardless, we had a great time exploring Valley Forge Park together! Their day was a bit rainy and cold but inside their Hotel DuPont wedding everything was perfect! The formal Christmas wedding was absolutely stunning. Every inch of the venue was a dream to work in just as Alex & Erik were, even in all of their “awkwardness”. Congratulations Alex & Erik! It was an honor to photograph your day!

THE INN AT LAMBERTVILLE STATION WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

My career in photography has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people. If it wasn’t for Kara, a friend and fellow photographer, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to photograph Christina and Scott’s wedding at the Inn at Lambertville Station in New Jersey this past October. Christina is incredibly sweet and is Kara’s sister. Scott is sarcastic and funny but I know deep down had a soft side. Scott insisted that since this was their second marriage, it wouldn’t be like a traditional wedding and I reminded him of that comment while we waited for Christina to make her appearance at their first look! Like most second weddings Christina and Scott wanted most of the focus to be on family. We took so many family photos which I hope will be treasured by everyone for years to come.

GROUNDS FOR SCULPTURE WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

Lexi and Hank celebrated their new marriage alongside close friends and family for an intimate morning wedding at the Grounds for Sculpture. The weather was questionable for their morning outdoor ceremony but the sun eventually came out in perfect timing for Lexi and Hank to say “I do”. After the ceremony the new bride and groom took the time to personally see each guest before taking photos of their new combined family. Rat’s Restaurant welcomed everyone to a lovely brunch where a few close friends and even Lexi’s son, gave heartfelt toasts wishing happiness to the newlyweds.

JG DOMESTIC WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

I have so many favorites from Chelsea and Tony’s wedding! Their day was a bit hectic due to some crazy traffic in the city but when you have a bride like Chelsea that has every gorgeous detail planned perfectly a little traffic is no big deal. The new Mr. and Mrs. had the most gorgeous sunny day for their wedding and celebrated alongside close friends and family at JG Domestic in Philadelphia. Garces Events ran the whole day perfectly as well as all of the other vendors that Chelsea and Tony chose for their day! Enjoy!

HAMILTON MANOR WEDDING

By | Weddings | No Comments

Sometimes  I struggle with what to write in these blog posts and the main reason is because I just can’t repeat how awesome a couple is, over and over again. So I sit here just thinking that Ashley and Dan are awesome and I can’t come up with anything else to say that would do any justice. Their Hamilton Manor wedding was full of all of the moments you want to see during a wedding – emotion, laughter, hilarious antics from family members, and mummer umbrellas. Let’s just start with the bridal prep where everyone had Mean Girls themed shirts on. Amazing. Then we got to Ashley’s first look with her dad complete with high fives. On to the ceremony where Ashley’s sister and maid of honor was a tad overzealous when it came to fluffing the dress but had us all cracking up about it. And we can’t forget the reception where Ashley’s dad unbuttoned his dress shirt to reveal a Spiderman costume underneath and “webbed” everyone. I won’t even get into the hilariously inappropriate best man and maid of honor speeches! The day was overall gray and gloomy but left only the brightest and most cheerful memories. Congratulations Ashley and Dan!!

BLACK BASS HOTEL ELOPEMENT

By | Elopement, Weddings | No Comments

I truly love when couples know exactly what they want and aren’t afraid to go against the norm and pursue their own version of a perfect wedding day. Rachel and Tom first reached out to me and weren’t quite sure of where they wanted to tie the knot but they knew they wanted it to be outside in nature. After making a decision, the Black Bass Hotel came up weeks later. We changed course and never looked back. The Black Bass Hotel in Bucks County was the perfect location for their intimate, fall elopement. The short ceremony was officiated by a great friend and as soon as they said “I Do”, their family all ran up to give hugs!  We took photos out on the bride behind the Black Bass and a few more on the grounds near the ceremony location. Afterwards Rachel and Tom enjoyed lunch with their family. It was pretty much a perfect day – no fuss, no stress, but all of the love you can imagine.
