Philadelphia Wedding Photography | Julia & Ross's Valley Green Inn Wedding

*Posted by Theresa*

Here at Fairmount we usually work with couples that live in Philadelphia or the surrounding area, but every so often we'll hear from an engaged couple that lives a few states away who happen to be getting married in the city. In the case of Julia and Ross, 'a few states away' meant New Mexico!

The two brought things back to where it all began (they met in Chestnut Hill) for their wedding at Valley Green Inn. You could definitely tell that these two were meant for each other! Family and friends travelled from all over the country to see them tie the knot, and you could feel the love in the air as thick as the humidity that day.

We started the day with the bride and groom at the Chestnut Hill Hotel, we did bridal party portraits along Germantown Avenue and ended the night at one of our favorite wedding venues: Valley Green Inn. And of course we did a First Look on the bridge near Valley Green Inn! The quiet, rustic atmosphere was such a perfect fit for the wedding, and kept things intimate and special. We may have had just as much fun as the guests hitting the dance floor!

Philadelphia Wedding Photography | Josh and Lauren's Fairmount Park Wedding

Weddings at Valley Green Inn are always fun for us. The park, the venue, everything is just so picturesque. Add in perfect weather and start to understand how Lauren and Josh's Fairmount Park wedding was last fall!

Lauren and her two bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done at Spa Elysium-Fringe in Chestnut Hill, then went back to the Chestnut Hill Hotel to get dressed. The bridesmaids wore knee-length gray bridesmaids dresses, while Lauren wore a beautiful Roman inspired, off the shoulder wedding gown.

Down the hall in the boys' room, Josh had super hero t-shirts ready for his groomsmen to wear under their suits, along with accompanying tie clips!

While the girls made their way to Valley Green Inn for portraits, the boys stopped off down the street to the Iron Hill Brewery for portraits...and a well deserved beer.

Once they had their first look on the bridge near Valley Green Inn (and Josh was sufficiently blown away by his beautiful bride-to-be!), we walked all around the grounds of Valley Green to capture some lovely photos, made even more dreamy by the warm fall colors.

Josh and Lauren said "I do" as the sun set, and danced the night away surrounded by the gold accents of their wedding reception!

Some details we loved were their ombre wedding cake, irish champagne flutes, and a pumpkin with their faces carved into it!

They ended the night as uniquely as their day had been, with LOTS of glowsticks! Glowsticks at a wedding, you say? That's right. They made it truly a fun night to remember.
