The Merion Wedding // Theresa & Brian

In honor of the #WeddingWednesday’s blustery weather we’re flashing back to Theresa and Brian’s New Year’s Eve wedding at The Merion in Cinnaminson New Jersey!

We met Theresa and her bridesmaids at the home she grew up in to begin the wedding day preparations.

We made sure to photograph all of her custom details and spent a few extra minutes with some beautiful natural light close ups.

Sometimes the most magical of moments happen without any direction at all…like a final glance in the mirror before seeing your Dad 🙂

Bryn Athyn Cathedral is AMAZING!  We took full advantage of the time we had there and captured Brian in his last minute prep.

The church was magnificent from the outside, and certainly didn’t disappoint once we were inside it’s walls.  Their ceremony was beautiful and we couldn’t wait to photograph the newlyweds in this setting.

Some of our favorite images in church typically come after the ceremony is over.  When the pews are empty and it’s quiet almost like a dream…

After we finished up indoors, we headed outside to continue with the gang.  It was FREEZING, but we had an incredible bridal party who were all up for anything we threw at them.

The limo was waiting for the troops, but we still had time for a private session…and everything about it was perfect.

Theresa’s cloak had us both dreamy eyed…it was like a Disney fairy tale.

Remember I said it was freezing!  For the sake of photography, nothing was stopping Theresa and we LOVED that about her.  These photos are just gorgeous.

We traveled to The Merion, whom I’m sure you know hosts quite the incredible event.  And not only was tonight special because it was their wedding but it was NEW YEAR’S EVE!  They pulled out all the stops and no detail left to chance.

The ballroom was magnificently set and beautifully lit by what was an incredible company MAZZ Entertainment.

In the spirit of New Year’s the bridal party showed up in Mummers fashion and thoroughly appreciated by this Philly crowd.

Everything was exceptional from soup to nuts, guests always leave saying incredible things about their experience at The Merion!

Once it came time for the ball to drop, MAZZ Entertainment live streamed the countdown on the big screen and the rest is history!

Congratulations Theresa and Brian!  You’re wedding was certainly one for the record books and we’re honored to have been a part of it all.
