Wendy and Sean had the most amazing wedding day at Belmont Mansion in Philadelphia in early September. Just wait until you see their ceremony views!
I first met Wendy at a Chamber of Commerce event and she said she needed her wedding photographer. Voila! We were scheduling a meeting and in no time, planning their engagement session. Their engagement session was held in Center City Philadelphia and we had a great evening roaming the city, finding little pockets of the area with great photo opportunities. We ended up at City Hall to capture the median images, knowing we wouldn’t have time to head their for their actual wedding day.
On their big day, we met up at the Hilton City Avenue hotel to catch the getting ready photos–often times some of my favorite images form the day–and this day is no different!
Their First Look was at the venue: Belmont Mansion, located just over the hill with breath-taking views of the city skyline. Even without the skyline, the building itself is amazing. So many colors and textures, it was definitely a dream to photograph there, with endless possibilities for portraits. The mansion is extremely unique and historical, as it was a major stop on the Underground Railroad. The mansion itself is a museum documenting the historical time.
Rain was threatening the day, but it managed to hold off until the reception, so the two of them were able to enjoy a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the Philadelphia skyline.
Finally, when planning their nighttime shot, the rain came at the exact right moment, sparkling the area around them adding to the photo.
