It feels like we've been excited for Justin & Emily's summer wedding at Glen Foerd in Northeast Philadelphia for almost as long as them! We had so much fun at their engagement session last fall at ReStore, a reclaimed furniture store in Fishtown, and we couldn't wait to see everything they had planned for their June wedding come to fruition. Their love for all things vintage popped up in little unexpected details throughout the day, but they mostly relied on the natural beauty of their church and reception site to set the overall tone of the day.
We met up with them at the Loews Hotel in Center City. If you're keeping count, that's the third wedding in a row we've been to this hotel, so they must be doing something right! You'll hear no complaints from us, since this centrally located hotel offers a great view of the Philly skyline, bright and modern rooms and easy access to a variety of Philly venues. For Emily & Justin, this hotel was a no-brainer, since it was just a bock and a half from St. John the Evangelist church, where they had their wedding ceremony. From there a vintage car picked them up for a trip around the block to get photobooth photos at El Vez restaurant.
Then it was off to the historic Glen Foerd mansion along the Delaware River in Northeast Philly. I just love the general atmosphere of this venue. Guests could enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the wrap-around front porch, explore the historically maintained rooms of the mansion or wander down the path along the Delaware River, before heading to the huge glass-enclosed patio on the back of the house for dinner and dancing.
Emily & Justin — Thanks for making us a part of your beautiful wedding day! It was such a pleasure to share the day with you and your family. You guys definitely know how to throw a party!
