I know I’ve talked about it before, but I have no problem saying it again…some of my favorite weddings are those for brides that come back to us because of their experience as a bridesmaid…remember Jenn & Matt back in May of 2014? (click here) recognize Kristen’s pretty face a in a blue dress? Showing up at the Loews in the morning was like walking into a room with a bunch of girlfriends excited to see me too!
Patrick and his groomsmen also got ready at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel…and we can’t forget to mention the infamous Mazanec Belt 🙂
Their ceremony was right around the corner at St. John the Evangelist Church…its a gorgeous piece of architecture and quite the backdrop for Kristen and Patrick to exchange vows.
We had a great timeline planned out before the big day, and lots of places to hit before the party back at the Loews. We had a great group to photograph, and they were down for anything we threw at them…Love Park in Center City Philadelphia was the first place we stopped…had to hit all the iconic philly photo ops!
Next up, the Broad Street Dip…can’t get married in the city without stopping traffic first for this shot in front of Mr. Penn and City Hall…
We jumped out again in the historical section of Philadelphia for a picture on the steps of the first back in the city…gotta love that fish eye lens!
Race Street Pier for a few…then Washington Square for some greenery and finally back to the Loews Hotel for their own iconic 33rd Floor skyline photo op! (my favorite!)
I can’t say enough about these two, but I will say I’m sad its over and I’m hoping to have another bridesmaid to a bride opportunity with these gals in the future!
Congratulations Kristen & Patrick, it was an incredible day and I’m so honored to have been a part of it. Here’s to many many many years of love and laughter!
