Martha & Anthony’s wedding at Moorestown Community House is today’s featured #WeddingWednesday couple…and this is certainly one to scroll through!

Martha has had a clear vision of her wedding day since she was little.  We were all about making her vision a reality and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.

We spent the early part of the day in two different locations, both Martha and Anthony surrounded by friends preparing for the evening.

We snuck Martha’s mom in for some finishing touches and began the walk to see Anthony for the first time…

…not without one last look of course!

…Meanwhile across the street… 🙂

Gotta love an incredible first look expression by the Groom!

We brought out the gang for a fun portrait session and really had a blast just playing up the style.

We were really working for striking poses and statement imagery and we found some incredible spaces inside the Moorestown Community House to capture just that.

Last item on the list before their ceremony was just a few minutes of the newlyweds alone…some of our favorite moments happen when no one else is around.

Moorestown Community House was set perfectly for their ceremony.  Every detail was considered and nothing was left to chance.

Congratulations Martha and Anthony!  It was such a pleasure getting to know you both and capturing your incredible day.

Cheers to a lifetime of happiness for you both!

It’s raining here in PA but we’re definitely smiling about this week’s #WeddingWednesday post…

Elizabeth and James were married at French Creek Golf Club this summer and it was absolutely fabulous.

Renovations at French Creek Golf Club are complete and the new space for both the bride and groom are perfect for all things prep.

It’s a great way to start the day and build excitement for that fairy tale “first reveal” moment.

There’s also not a bad location for pictures anywhere on the ground of French Creek Golf Club so naturally, the first reveal was AMAZING!

We headed down to our favorite spot by the spring house and lake with the entire bridal party for a portrait session so everyone would be able to enjoy all of cocktail hour.  Who doesn’t love the idea of that!?!?!

There’s something about Elizabeth and James that was super contagious.  Their smiles and love for each other just came through so perfectly in these images.

Classic elegance with a farmhouse feel, looks like perfection to us!

We were set alongside mother nature for a beautiful outdoor ceremony that went off without a hitch…

Gotta love when it all comes together at just the right time 🙂

French Creek Golf Club is a beautiful space but inside and out.  The staff is amazing and their food, simply incredible.  You’ll have no worries here, that’s for sure.

Special shout out to DJ Taz with Silver Sound DJs for awesome uplighting and entertainment that kept the guests on their feet.  Congratulations Elizabeth and James, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

We’re bringing some sun to this dreary day.  It’s #WeddingWednesday and we’re showcasing Michelle & Roydon’s wedding at Finley Catering’s Ballroom at Ellis Preserve

The morning couldn’t have been more perfect with these two.

Roydon was definitely having fun with his groomsmen…who said being photographed had to be painful?!?!?!

We headed out to the church where they said their vows in a beautiful ceremony, complete with bubble send off 🙂

Finley Catering’s newest venue, Ballroom at Ellis Preserve has so many backdrops there’s no need to go anywhere else.


On one side, the look of rolling fields and on the other roman columns, doesn’t get much more convenient than that!

We made sure to be a part of the room reveal with the newlyweds and got some great photos of all their hard work that finally came together…how gorgeous!

Finley Catering and all of the staff at Ballroom at Ellis Preserve are incredible, not an item out of place and the food is AMAZING!

As always, one of our favorite parts of the day to photograph is after the sun goes down…had to get some sparkler fun in there too!


Congratulations Michelle & Roydon!  We wish you both many many years of health and happiness.

We’re outside the city on the Main Line for this week’s #TBT.  Throwing back to Christie and Kevin’s wedding day at The Radnor Hotel

We prepared for the nuptials of Christie and Kevin at two different homes, and set out for the ceremony to exchange “i dos”.

The church was gorgeous and made for the perfect backdrop to this couple’s ceremony.

Complete with a bubble send off, we hopped on the bus and headed to Eastern University for bridal portraits…

The day was unbelievably hot and it had rained during the ceremony so the humidity was incredible.  But this bridal party was all in for Christie and Kevin.  We had an awesome photo shoot with the whole group.

We stole a few minutes with the newlyweds, and really couldn’t wait to get these two alone on the water.  It really couldn’t have gone any better!

The Radnor Hotel was beautifully set for the evening.  The decor is always spot on and the service is top of the line.

We never hear a complaint about the entire experience, true professionals are by your side the entire day.

We certainly couldn’t end the night without getting outside for a few…not even mother nature’s rain could stop us 🙂

Congratulations Christie and Kevin!  It was an awesome day and we’re so lucky to have been a part of it.

Today in honor of #TBT we’re throwing back to Katie and Thad’s wedding at Atrium at Curtis Center, one of Cescaphe Event Group’s premier wedding venues…

…but first we must start at the lovely Hotel Monaco for all things prep 🙂

We had a wonderful early afternoon getting ready for the day’s festivities, complete with a bit of bubble of course…

Thad spent the morning with his groomsmen and parents at the home he grew up in.  It was a wonderful day to start the day and prepare for the “I do’s”.

…don’t you just love the little note from Katie?!?!?

Their ceremony at Old Saint Joseph’s Church was beautiful, so much history in that space, and we got to make a little history ourselves!

We got a great group shot in the courtyard before we hit the road for a few spots for portraits…

First stop was the 18th Century Gardens, we got the whole bridal party involved but had to steal a few moments with the newlyweds…

Next up…Washington Square…

And finally, The Atrium at the Curtis Center…we always love to be involved in the room reveal, some of our favorite shots come from those moments.

Nothing like seeing months of planning finally come together!

Thad and Katie’s entrance was perfection, not to mention the choreographed first dance that went off without a hitch…and don’t let us forget the iconic newlywed dip and petal cannon!

All of their guests thoroughly enjoyed every moment…Cescaphe Event Group is second to none and never leave a detail up to chance…and don’t forget the Wedding Painter!!!

It was such an honor getting to photograph this couple and their families.  We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these two!

Congratulations Katie & Thad!  Here’s to many many years of love and happiness.

xoxo
