Rachel & Neil's Modern Victorian wedding at Knowlton Mansion

• Posted by Natalie •

Way back when I was planning my own wedding, the Knowlton Mansion in Northeast Philadelphia, was one of my top choices to hold our big day. We ended up choosing a different site, but since then I've been hoping for the chance to return and photograph a wedding at this gorgeous Victorian house. At the end of March, my wish was granted when Rachel & Neil tied the knot under the glass skylights in the Mansion's Conservatory.

Rachel's classic dress and hairstyle fit in perfectly with the venue, and daffodil accents throughout the wedding added in a playfulness that fits perfectly with the couple.  It was a very emotional day, and it was beautiful to see how well these two complement each other.

Rachel & Neil, we wish you guys a lifetime filled with lots of laughter and sunny bike rides :)  Thanks for inviting us to share your big day!
