The Knowlton Mansion // Kara & James, Philadelphia, PA

Hamerstone & Scott Wedding

We bring you some truly special moments from Kara and James’ special day, which they chose to celebrate at the Knowlton Mansion, Fox Chase, Philadelphia.

The bride, Kara’s dazzling necklaces and engagement ring!

Kara’s stunning wedding dress against the 19th century décor of the Knowlton Mansion took our breath away!

Kara got ready with her bridesmaids in the bridal suite at the mansion.

The wedding bands set atop an old typewriter perfectly encapsulated the essence of this quaint wedding venue!

Kara looked extremely stunning in her wedding gown that we couldn’t help but take her portraits all over the mansion!


The groom, James, looked truly dapper in his crisp wedding suit!

James posed with his groomsmen against the Victorian décor of the Knowlton Mansion Library.

James waited for his bride at the stunning white pergola in the Knowlton Mansion garden.

We loved how Kara walked to the pergola herself. Her smile was so beautiful that it took our breath away!

Kara and James read handwritten vows to each other – it was a truly special moment, which was made even more special by the stunning greenery of the Knowlton Mansion garden!

And then, they were one!!  Just look at the radiant smiles on their faces!


The expansive lush garden of the Knowlton Mansion acted as the perfect backdrop for these pictures. The wedding party had a blast posing with the beautiful couple!


The new couple posed in the magnificent garden of the Knowlton Mansion, which was a sight to behold!

Just look at the intricate flowers and the detailing! The photos of the couple also added a nice touch to the joyous day!

The Knowlton Mansion Conservatory, with its vaulted ceilings, glass skylights, and intricate woodwork, was the perfect venue for the reception.

The vibrant flowers perfectly complemented the simple yet chic place settings at the reception venue!

Kara and James enjoying their first dance as a couple! The sky lit ballroom and the gorgeous dance floor were picture-perfect!

The newlyweds changed things up and slow danced to an 80s song!

The wedding guests quickly joined in on the fun on the ballroom dance floor!

Ah, the much-awaited cake cutting! We simply loved capturing these candid moments between the newly married couple!

The hilarious speeches made by the best man had all the wedding guests laughing their hearts out!

We ended the night by taking some gorgeous shots of the oh-so-in-love couple on the grand staircase and the stairs leading to the wine cellar at the Knowlton Mansion!

Kara and James, you guys chose the perfect venue for your big day and we loved capturing every special moment of your wedding! We wish you all the happiness in the world!
