Nothing says classic Philly quite like a Ballroom at the Ben wedding! Natasha and Julian’s stunning day had one amazing surprise for the guests at their reception…Belly Dancers! Such a beautiful wedding, so many smiles and laughs and pure joy. It was an honor to be part of such an amazing celebration of love.
Loews Philadelphia Hotel was the prep location for the bride and bridesmaids. I was thrilled to once again work with Jenn Haines of Gloss Philly, one of our favorite hair and makeup artists. She’s honestly amazing. I never have to fix facial imperfections when Jenn does the makeup. She’s honestly that good. An elegant gown from Love Couture Bridal and flowers from Jennifer Designs made for a truly elegant look.
Old Saint James is the oldest Catholic church in Philadelphia. It has lots of old wood and beautiful gold and artwork. I’ve been fortunate to photograph it several times. You can feel the history of the building just by being there. It’s a very special place. I love that Natasha and Julian left the ceremony to go to our photo stop in a classic Chevy. SO romantic!
The Merchant’s Exchange Building in Old City is a classic for wedding photos. I joined the bridal party there for a some beautiful photos after the ceremony. I love the bride and groom portraits we took that day. Definitely make sure you get a permit for this location, so you can shoot undisturbed for a bit.
Ballroom at the Ben is always a perfect choice for classic Philly weddings. The staff is amazing and the building is stunning. Natasha and Julian surprised their guests with Belly Dancers! The performance was absolutely amazing. They were truly beautiful performers.
