Few sights can match the sunset over Philadelphia from 52 floors up, but that was just the icing on the cake during Julia & Tom's Pyramid Club wedding reception. This sweet and fun couple tied the knot in Center City Philadelphia at St. Patrick's Church in early July before stopping at a few iconic Philly spots for wedding portraits, and then venturing up to the Pyramid Club for the evening.
The view wasn't the only thing that was spot-on. Julia outfitted her bridesmaids in various brightly-colored dresses, and matched her bouquet to the colors of her sisters' dresses. It created a bright and cheery palette to match the beautiful summer wedding day. Tom added his own bit of flair by surprising the whole bridal party — especially his new wife — with fake mustaches for the men and party-store accessories for the ladies. Julia gamely indulged him and donned a uni-brow for a few fun bridal party photos during portraits at the Azalea Garden behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Though thunderstorms threatened us all day, the weather cooperated beautifully as the storms held off until we had wrapped up outdoor portraits and the newly married couple was enjoying their cocktail hour. The wedding reception room at the Pyramid Club provided guests with an awesome panoramic view of Philadelphia from three sides. For a little bit it looked gloomy as we watched thick clouds obscure our wonderful view before the rain started, but afterward we were treated to a rainbow over the Ben Franklin bridge as the sun set and the party really got started.
These two know how to make an exit! Their guests showered them with bubbles as they exited the Pyramid Club. Back at the ground level, a pedicab picked them up and whisked them in the night.
Julia & Tom, being your wedding photographers was truly a treat! You two and your whole crew were such a blast to spend the day with. Thanks so much for including us!
