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 | Alli & Jason's Valley Green Inn Wedding

Alli and Jason were one of our final Fall weddings of 2014, and their special day was just perfect!

We met up with Alli and her bridesmaids for some getting ready photos at Blo/Out, a salon right in the heart of Center City Philadelphia. After the girls were finished with their beautiful hair and makeup, they assembled over at the Hyatt at the Bellevue on Broad Street. Here, in a fantastic suite overlooking the city, Alli put on her gorgeous beaded, strapless wedding gown and blue heels. She looked amazing!

The guys were also getting ready in the Bellevue, but on another floor. The groomsmen looked great in their charcoal grey suits and orange ties, and Jason stood out wearing a sharp blue suit with a fuchsia tie. It all worked to pull together the bridesmaids' fuchsia, knee length dresses, and the pops of fall colors in the bouquets.

Jason and Alli had their first look on the steps at the Bellevue, and Jason was left speechless when he saw his bride!

The group of 11 then made their way around Center City for some photos, ending up on Kelly Drive for a quick game of Wiffle Ball, one of Alli and Jason's favorite games! This was definitely the first time we ever did Wiffle Ball wedding photos, and it was so much fun!

The soon-to-be newlyweds headed over to Valley Green, the perfect spot for their fall wedding ceremony and reception! Alli's best friend officiated the wedding, and he had the bride and groom in tears (mosty from laughing!) during the ceremony. When the couple said "I do," their guests sent them down the aisle in a shower of golden fall leaves.

Their reception was warm and inviting, with sunflowers adorning the tables, and dreamy paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling of the Valley Green reception hall.

The whole crowd had such a fun time, and Alli and Jason had sunglasses ready for all of their guests, printed with "Klein Time" - the couple's running motto of the day - on the lenses! It was definitely a wedding for the books!

(It's Klein Time! Yeaaaaaaaaaaa!)
