You couldn't have a nicer group of people than Terri & Russ and their family and friends. I'm so happy they had such a beautiful day at The Desmond, in Malvern PA. The color scheme was a deep violet with flowers containing white & yellow, the perfect accents. The bride's bouquet had a dragonfly in it. I love dragonflies, too. The suite where the bride and her girls got dressed was awesome! Big and beautiful with large windows on two adjacent walls. As the photographer, I love being able to control the light and this room was the perfect set up. Plus there were two adjacent bedrooms so there was plenty of places for the women to put their stuff and keep the center area clear. Russ and the men were able to have their own session before and took advantage of the many areas inside and outside of The Desmond. The wedding ceremony was in the solarium, which is beautiful, large windows surround the whole room and ceiling. The Cocktail hour and ballroom were close together and spectacularly beautiful. They had little cookies made that were the spitting image of the bride and groom, each guest received a set. The music and MC of the day was provided by Frank Raffa, owner of Sound Sensation DJ's. As always he and Amber did a wonderful job. The guests were treated to a night of great music and delicious food. The service and thoughtfulness of the staff were second to none. Here are a few images of the day. More to come in about 2 weeks.
Congratulations to Melissa and Andrew on their beautiful wedding! There may not have been any water from the sky, but there was lot's of water in the form of happy tears throughout the day. Melissa's father could not hold back the tears when he turned around to see his daughter as the beautiful bride for the first time, which of course brought tears to everybody's eyes. We did a first reveal for the little flower girl too. She couldn't have been more excited and happy. She was such a sweet and pretty little girl! The day started at the Residence Inn in North Wales with the men getting ready. They looked quite debonair in their navy blue tuxedoes with an orange tie and pocket squares from Men's Wearhouse. The women soon arrived, all looking great with their hair and makeup done at Contempo Cuts. They did a super job. We were transported by an adorable trolley provided by Cescape Trolly, to St Matthews church in Conshohocken, which is a cathedral-like historic church. The grandparents and parents were escorted up the aisle as Dr. Troy Wilnemiller sang The Lord's Prayer. I can't describe to you how majestic it was as he stood on the balcony in the back of the church and filled the church with his operatic and booming voice. It literally brought tears to my eyes! Then the girls proceeded up the aisle. I'll never forget the look of pure love and beaming happiness on the grooms face when he saw his bride and her father coming up the aisle. See if you can spot which of these images are of that moment.
The reception was at Talamore Country Club in Ambler PA. The Talamore never looked more beautiful with the table clothes and flower centerpieces all perfectly matching the color scheme of the wedding party. In fact, all the flowers, which were from Willow and Thistles in Blue Bell PA, looked fabulous! Uplighting and monogram and photobooth were supplied by Frank Raffa from Sound Sensation DJ's. They also providied the "Dancing on a Cloud" first dance, it was very romantic. So, here is a little preview of some of their wedding images. Many more to come in a few weeks.
Have you ever been surprised with a party or shower? If you didn't suspect it, you probably were not dressed with hair and makeup done the way you would have been, had you known. I think it's safe to say that Barbara was really surprised at her party at Talamore Country Club in Ambler PA. She was told by her husband that he hired a photographer to do some professional pictures as a birthday gift to her. Great idea because it gave her a reason to be dressed up. The surprise didn't end there though. For MC they had a comedian who is famous in Nigeria, where Barbara and Alan are from. He flew in for a couple engagements. Alan got down on one knee, presented her with a bouquet of roses. You would think that's it, but no, he also gave her a beautiful and very large ring. For dinner they had authentic Nigerian Food along with the Talamore's American food. I tried the rice and some kind of fried dough, both were delicious! Did you know that Talamore allows outside caterers? After cutting the cake and some heart felt words for Barbara by family and friends the dancing began and never stopped till the party was over. Everybody had a great time. Here is a sneak peek till I can get the rest of the photos processed and uploaded.
Here is a different approach to a wedding: Split up the wedding day by holding the ceremony and the reception on different days. This is what Tracey and Jim did and I must say, it worked out very well. Immediately after the Saturday mass, the wedding ceremony was held at St. Luke the Evangelist Church, 2316 Fairhill Ave, Glenside, PA 19038. The ceremony was followed by a short photography session and a bubble exit.
The next week was the reception at the newly renovated Country House at Blue Stone, 711 Boehms Church Rd, Blue Bell PA. We met them early and took formal pictures, then they enjoyed their reception. There were several unique elements at the reception. First, the prints of the wedding ceremony were framed and displayed around the home style rooms and on the baby grand piano. They looked beautiful, if I do say so myself. There is also an outdoor area with a fire pit which the guests enjoyed, especially the cigar smoking men. Inside the music was provided by Unbreakable Entertainment from Warminster PA. During the evening, everybody went outside and watched as Tracey and Jim released a hot air balloon lantern. They also had some cute family wedding traditions, like everybody waving flags and singing "God Bless America" and ending the evening with a human pyramid. It was a really fun wedding with a really nice group of people. Speaking of nice, the staff at Blue Stone Country Club were wonderful and the food was outstanding. I definitely recommend checking them out if you are planning a wedding. Here is their sneak peek:
Congratulations to Zach and Rebecca on a wonderful wedding at the Warrington Country Club,1360 Almshouse Road, Warrington PA . The beauty of the bride was almost matched by the wonderful weather and the view of their outdoor location. The bridal party colors were a gorgeous yellow and white accented by the men wearing a dark blue tux. The white and yellow roses were provided by Domenic Graziano's. The Warrington Country Club has been totally renovated in this past year. It was always pretty, but we love the new glamorous look. First thing in the day while we were taking pictures of the girls, the bride's son was asking where is the doughnut wall was. Turns out it was a dessert option I had never seen before. This was a wall of freshly made donuts with a wide variety of options. Image the smell of fresh doughnuts still warm and some even dripping with fresh chocolate. It looked delicious! The guests were treated to a delicious dinner and had a great time dancing and visiting with each other. Here are just a few of my favorite images. Check my website to see more soon.
