A few weekends ago we made our first trip back to one of our favorite venues, Valley Green Inn, for Caroline and Alejandro's outdoor wedding along the Wissahickon creek. Portraits were a priority for these two, so they decided on doing a First Look in Center City Philadelphia, inside the Hyatt at The Bellevue where Caroline got ready. We had the bride-to-be descend a spiral staircase to her fiance awaiting below with the bridal party looking on. After that we ventured out to South Broad Street for some bridal party portraits at the Union League of Philadelphia and then bride and groom portraits at City Hall.
Then it was off to Fairmount Park! After a few more bridal party portraits on the bridge near Valley Green Inn it was time to prepare for the wedding ceremony. They decided to have their ceremony on the bank of the Wissahickon Creek, just outside of the 19th century inn. With the creek as a backdrop and a beautiful May day, their ceremony went off without a hitch.
There were a few surprises throughout the night, like the percussion group Alejandro's mom surprised everyone with. Alejandro is from Puerto Rico, and the band played music like you'd hear there, so it was a great way to add some unique flavor to their wedding. Personalized M&Ms and brightly colored poms hanging from the rafters of the porch emphasized their tropical color scheme of pink and light teal. And they incorporated their love of animals with table named after their favorite pets.
The biggest surprise, though, had to be the Kid Robot-themed Groom's cake that Caroline had made. Alejandro's face pretty much said it all when he first saw it come out.
Caroline and Alejandro, it was truly a pleasure working with you both. Your personalities truly do compliment each other and that came through in a big way on your wedding day. Thank you so much for making us a part of that experience!
