Tattooed bride and groom at Barn on Bridge

ShaunaRae and Andrew’s wedding at Barn on Bridge was the perfect example of every reason we dove into wedding photography in the first place.  This gorgeous tattooed bride and her love’s star war themed wedding was a perfect reflection of heart filled moments, beautiful DIY touches, and plenty of geeky details.

ShaunaRae was a stunning bride. Her beautiful artwork was the perfect compliment to a sweet wedding dress from L and H Bridal, and playful Mod Cloth bridal shoes. Lindsay Cave from Do or Dye Hair Salon gets my vote for the coolest bridal hair ever, which included several pre-wedding day trips for color. I’m not even close to sorry that I was obsessed with portraits of ShaunaRae all day. I love the Bridal Suite at Barn on Bride for portraits, which is good since it always seems to be the coldest day of the year every time I shoot there.

Favorite details? That’s a tough one. Andrew’s AT-AT walker plug was amazing. The Star wars ties and storm trooper ” boutonnières” for the groomsmen, and sweet little suitcases for the ladies instead of bouquets. The flower Shauna Rae made for her dad out of Beetles sheet music was unique and beautiful.  There was even a faux “photo booth” set up in the corner which made a cute area for us to take guests photos during dinner.

I love the romantic night portrait from the end of the evening. It was so cold, I can’t believe Shauna Rae braved it. We got it right literally in 5 shutter counts, ’cause that’s how magic this wedding was!

Adam and Eva’s easy summer wedding at Valley Green Inn on the Wissahickon was the epitome of colorful, joyous whimsy, truly unique and absolutely wonderful.  We first met Adam where we find all our best treasures, at Philly Aids Thrift where he works as a manager.  We were fortunate to have one of our favorite engagement sessions at the Italian Market with the couple and knew we were in for a treat photographing their wedding.

Their details were a perfect reflection of the artistic, uniqueness of the pair.  From Eva’s pale grey dress with floral shoes, to Adam’s pink bow tie and Nikes, the bridal party in non-matching dresses (SOMUCHYES!) and everyone’s hand made bouquets and floral crowns.  Paper flowers adorned the archway for an outdoor ceremony on the Wissahickon, oddly perfect with the wrestling figures used as centerpieces on the tables.

This wedding was all about family and friends and laughter.  Eva’s nephew entertained guests pre-ceremony with a spectacular cello rendition of Star Wars pre-ceremony, and the Philly Aid’s Thrift family in attendance were fabulous in every way.  Some weddings you just feel fortunate to be a part of.  Thank you Adam and Eva for allowing us to drop into your life for an unforgettable afternoon.

WARNING!!!  Playing Heart during cake cutting can lead to brilliantly geeky lip syncing.  Trust me on this one.
