Sean and Phil have a joy for living life that is absolutely palpable. We knew after shooting their fun engagement session around Philly that their wedding was going to be a truly special event to be part of. The men chose U Penn’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology for their venue. Upon arriving at the space, we were allowed to photograph the gentlemen in the Egypt Lower Gallery, under the shadow of the 15 ton sphinx of Ramses II. Sean and Phil were married in an outdoor ceremony in the Warden Garden by Jill Magerman of Meaningful Milestones. Some of my favorite moments included everyone present singing “What a Wonderful World” and the groomsmen draping rainbow ribbons around the couples hands in a lovely twist on the hand fasting ceremony. After an elegant cocktail hour, guests were invited into the famed Chinese Rotunda where they enjoyed a truly spectacular meal by CxRA beneath a 90 foot domed ceiling and surrounded by ancient Chinese art. Gabriella Nemati of Nature’s Florist provided the beautiful flower arrangements and some of the most beautifully unique boutonnieres I’ve ever seen. The real party began amongst pharaohs and mummies of ancient Egypt where guests danced the night away to the music of DJ Joe Philly Star of Philly Star DJs and fabulous lighting by Anthony Cistulli. A stunning cake by Ann’s Cake Pan looked almost too beautiful to eat. Sean and Phil, we can’t possibly thank you enough for allowing us to be even a small part of your journey. The love and joy of your day was one we will truly never forget.
