Philadelphia Wedding Photography | Breanne & Eric's Aldie Mansion Wedding

* Posted by Theresa *

We had our first wedding at Aldie Mansion in Doylestown this May with Breanne and Eric. It was such a beautiful place!

Matt started his day with the girls in the bridal suite of the Aldie Mansion, while Natalie met Eric and his groomsmen at the Hampton Inn in Warrington. There were so many great spots around the venue to photograph Breanne's beautiful strapless lace wedding gown and diamond accessories to match!

The bride looked breathtaking in her wedding gown, adorned with a lace cover-up that she later removed for the reception, and her bridesmaids looked great in their matching gray bridesmaids dresses.

Eric stood out from his groomsmen, wearing a white jacket with his tux, while the rest of the guys wore black-on-gray tuxes. They looked great!

They were both naturals in front of the camera so their bride and groom portraits were so much fun! Towards the end of the night, we were able to capture one of our favorite photos ever—the two under a gigantic, twinkle-lit tree!

Congratulations Breanne and Eric!

Philadelphia Wedding Photography | Leslie & Scott's Seaport Museum Wedding

*Post by Matt*

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.

Rich details | Sudha & Andrew's Southern Indian wedding ceremony

Indian Bride and Caucasian Groom kiss * Posted By Natalie and Matt*

It's hard to believe that two years ago (to the day) we photographed our very first Thanksgiving Day wedding when we spent the day with our good friends Sudha and Andrew as they tied the knot in a traditional Indian wedding ceremony in New Jersey. We never got around to blogging about it, though, so we figured 'why not do it now?'

We knew from the beginning that Sudha & Andrew's wedding would be our most unusual event of the year. Partly because it was going to be our first traditional Indian wedding, partly because Sudha had no real interest in wedding planning or being a traditional bride and also because Natalie was going to be one of Sudha's bridesmaids. The very talented Douglas Bovitt, whose work you've seen before, joined us for the day to help document all the amazing details and provide back-up when Natalie had to put her camera down (it was hard to stop taking photos!)

This was an incredibly visual wedding so we won't bore you with too many words. In case you were wondering, the ceremony took place at the Sri Venkateshwara Hindu Temple in Bridgewater, NJ, while the reception was at Westin Governor Morris in Morristown, NJ. Both places were beautiful and really lent themselves to great photos.

And in case these two look familiar, it's because they probably do. This will be their third time on the blog, first time was here (when we had to take Sudha out to learn how to smile in front of the camera!) and second time was their engagement photos.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and happy two year anniversary Sudha and Andrew!

A match made by Santa(s) | Shannon & Brian's sneak peek

Our 2010 wedding season drew to a close on Saturday with what may be the most unusual wedding reception of the year.  Shannon & Brian decided to end their wedding day with the tradition that first brought them together: The Running of the Santas in Philadelphia.  There will be plenty of photos of all that craziness to come, but right now I just want to share one of my favorite shots from a little earlier in the day when the happy couple visited a few Philly landmarks in a gorgeous white Rolls Royce.  We were all too happy to include it in a few images :) A Bride and Groom kiss next to a vintage car in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

We have a lot of catching up to do, since we haven't shared a single full wedding yet—eek! But that means you'll have plenty of photos to remind you of warmer days throughout January and February.
