Desiree and Ryan's wedding at the Tendenza had to be one of our most entertaining all year! The newlyweds gave us the heads up that their bridal party was going to be a handful, but we were ready for them.They kept us laughing the whole day!
Melissa met the girls for getting ready photos at Desiree's family home in Northeast Philadelphia, while Matt gathered the guys at Ryan and Desiree's apartment above the Dollhouse Tanning Salon, which Desiree owns and operates.
Once the girls, dressed in strapless black bridesmaids dresses, helped Desiree into her beautiful, flowing wedding gown — which was embellished with diamonds — they gathered their things and went to meet Ryan and his groomsmen for the ceremony at Resurrection Church in the Northeast!
The ceremony was a traditional catholic wedding mass, and by the time the just-married-duo walked down the aisle, there were very few dry eyes in the church. After the mass, the whole bridal party hopped onto a trolley for arguably the most fun ride we've taken. First we stopped in Olde City for bridal party portraits before ending up in Northern Liberties. We did a few bridal party portraits at Liberty Lands, a park in Northern Liberties, and then took the Bride and Groom for their own portraits around Northern Liberties!
Following suit from the rest of the day, the reception at Tendenza was a ton of fun. The guests definitely did not hold back from busting a move on the dance floor!
Congratulations, Desiree and Ryan!
