Gretchen and Thomas were married at The Union League in Philadelphia with close friends and family, and celebrated the following day with a large reception at The Union League Golf Club, just outside the city.
Whilst the pair have made public their vastly different political views, even interviewing on BBC before and after their wedding (coincidentally before and after the election) to voice their divided opinions, they embody the ideal that when it comes to love, opposites attract.
It was a pleasure sharing in their special day and I’m excited to share some photographs from their wedding with you.
Shannon and Eric had their intimate wedding at Cecil Creek Farm. They surprised one another by both including a recount of their first date in their personalized vows to each other. Immediately smitten, they ordered absolutely everything on the menu. Despite being uncomfortably full, Shannon agreed when Eric suggested ordering the entire desert menu too, eager to spend as much time together as possible. Since that date, they’ve sat beside each other for every meal, so it seemed only fitting that they enjoyed a seven course meal with their closest friends and family for their reception too.
I met Michael and Erica a few years ago when I was working as a bartender in Old City. They were some of my favorite regulars so I was incredibly excited and honored when they asked me to be their wedding photographer.
The lovebirds chose to incorporate only the traditions that were important to them for their big day and skipped a bouquet, bridal party and the typical getting ready pictures. They opted instead for an intimate first look at Race Street Pier and portraits around some of their favorite spots in Old City before heading to Yards Brewery for their ceremony and reception with their closest family and friends.
I always feel so blessed to be a part of someone’s wedding day, it really is such an honor, but this one makes me extra warm and fuzzy and I’m excited to share it with you guys.
