Ashley & Aaron tied the knot at an elegant spring wedding at Tendenza in Northern Liberties a few weeks ago. Ashley has worked as a hair stylist for many weddings, so she knew exactly what she wanted from her day. Two of her top priorities were awesome photos and not being stressed—so she was pretty much our ideal bride!
The day started at the Loews Hotel in Center City. We wanted to take full advantage of this location, so we headed to the top floor of the hotel for a few portraits with the Philly skyline. (It was an added bonus to be able to keep everyone indoors as much as possible during the first heat wave of the season!) It was very important that Ashley & Aaron didn't see each other before the ceremony , so Matt and I spent a lot of time strategizing to create portraits that would go together, without having the bride and groom in the same place. We were able to spend over two hours with the bridal party before the ceremony and about an hour with the bride and groom afterward. That amount of time was an appreciated luxury, and it really gave us the ability to expand our creativity and style unique portraits for this wonderful couple.
The talented Regina Miller of Origin Photo joined our team for the day to take the groom and groomsmen portraits and help document the ceremony. I love her take on the guys!
Both the ceremony and reception were held at Tendenza. I love this venue so much because they truly think of every detail. It combines elegance and extravagance without being overdone. Teamed up with Beautiful Blooms florist, the reception decor was truly stunning. I love details, so I'm always in my happy place at a Tendenza wedding.
Ashley and Aaron— You guys are such a great couple. Thanks for throwing such a gorgeous wedding — and inviting us to document it! We loved having so much time to spend creating portraits, and I hope we were able to bring all your ideas to life.
