An Intimate Wedding in East Falls, Philadelphia


Letrell and Elisa’s intimate East Falls, Philadelphia wedding was a true joy to be a part of.   A lovely couple who wanted a small, cozy wedding surrounded by friends and family in the neighborhood they once lived in. For someone like me, who spends a crazy amount of time and energy on Philly weddings dragging around lightstands and photo gear on party buses, double parking, risking what shoulder joints I have left dipping in and out of locations, a wedding day as simple as this one was, was truly wonderful.

The Philadelphia Wedding Chapel is a hidden gem for Philadelphia weddings. They’ve recently expanded their space to include a large dining room, warm with re-claimed wood panels and flooded with natural light. Stacey Thomas does a beautiful job officiating the service and providing a serene, sophisticated and joyous event. After the ceremony, a quick trip to Falls Bridge is one of my favorite spots in the area for bride and groom photos, ripe with beautiful views and interesting architecture.  In Riva was the perfect spot for some incredible Napoletana style pizza and to watch the sun go down along the banks of the Schuylkill River.
