We were so excited to photograph Leslie and Scott's Independence Seaport Museum wedding last September! During their engagement photos at Temple University and around the Race Street Pier just a few months before, we really got to learn their sense of humor so we knew we were in for some fun!
Leslie's two piece wedding gown was stunning, with a touch of vintage flair, and her flowing lace veil added such a beautiful final touch. Needless to say Scott was moved to tears when he saw his bride walking down the aisle later that day! Leslie's girls looked just as great in their short, mint green bridesmaids dresses, each of which varied just slightly from the next.
After getting ready in Old City, we headed over to the Independence Seaport Museum along the banks of the Delaware river for the ceremony. During the ceremony, both Leslie's and Scott's vows moved each other and the entire crowd to tears. There was not a dry eye in the place!
The weather finally broke just in time for us to head out for bridal party portraits along the Delaware. Once it was time for just Leslie and Scott to step in front of the camera, the two just fell into place. Their sense of humor showed up when Scott had the great idea to literally be "blowing Leslie away" (see above) for a picture! It was a huge success, and such a fun bride and groom portrait idea.
The reception was incredibly fitting as this group had no hesitations about getting down on the dance floor, and took full advantage of the photo booth that we had set up on the side of the room.
The night was not complete until the fireworks began. You heard right: fireworks. The guests were in for a big surprise when the band asked everyone to step out onto the balcony and the light show began! It was the perfect ending to such a fun wedding, and really sent their special day off with a bang!
We could not have done it without the help of photographer extraordinaire Douglas Bovitt!
Leslise and Scott, your sense of humor and laid back persona really showed as your wedding day was so much fun in spite of the questionable weather! Thanks so much for bringing us along.
