PHILADELPHIA WEDDING: TAHARA & RICKEY

We could not have asked for a more loving, easy going couple to spend this beautiful day with earlier this summer.  Tahara & Rickey are two of the sweetest people you will meet and so in love with each other  They have been together for some years now and both knew that neither one of them were going to leave each others side.  It was only right that they celebrate their love, for the world to see, in front of their closest friends and family!    Tahara & Rickey were referred to us by our past clients Kisha & Mike, and it was great running into Kisha at the wedding.  Sit back and relax while enjoying a few of our favorites!

Rickey you are looking very sharp!

Tahara and Rickey opted for a first look.  We absolutely love the intimate feel of first looks and it seems to make the rest of the day go smoother.

Congratulations T & R!! Thanking for inviting us to document your big day!

DUPONT BRANTWYN ESTATE WEDDING : TAMMY & TROY

 A Long Time Coming….When you have someone you love, you don’t let them go.  Tammy & Troy have been together for some time and have never left each others side.  So it was only natural when Troy asked for her hand in marriage she said YES.  Tammy and Troy are a bubbly bunch, full of personality, enthusiasm and most importantly a deep seated love for each other.  Enjoy some of our favorites from their “Black & White” themed wedding.

Do you think the ladies are excited? Love their expressions…

Stunning!!

An intimate moment without seeing each other, before the full reveal and their “I Do’s”.

Very Dapper Guys!

Congrats again Tammy & Troy, may your love continue to grow each & every day….

CELEBRATIONS PHILADELPHIA WEDDING : SHAYNA & FRED

They started out as good friends and eventually fell in love.  Although this union seemed to have been a long time in the making due to somebody’s denial (Shayna), it is clear to see the love blossom and flourish between these two. You could almost say they were meant to be together.  For what started as two people being introduced at a Bible Study class and sharing a love and mutual interest in what they learned,….to two best friends now inseparable, we have the beautiful story that brings us to this day.

We can remember when S & F first reached out to us to ask about possibly documenting their special day, we were in St. Thomas on vacation but were happy to receive the call.  Shayna & I (Bernard) went to the same high school & college together, and even worked together for a time years ago :)  When they told us the story of how they met, the proposal and vision they had for their big day, we could tell we were going to enjoy this wedding and that we did.  Here are some of our favorites from their special day.  Enjoy!

Show stoppers!

Can you tell someone is excited!?

Shayna had to be reminded of which hand was her right when asked to join hands. :)

After the ceremony, it was time to head over to Celebrations for the reception party.

Ok…let me explain. You will only get this picture if you went to (the best high school in Philadelphia) Central High School.  Being one of the oldest high schools in the country, each graduating class has their own number. I along with Shayna’s sister Erica (far right) are a part of the 258th graduating class, while Shayna is a part of the 255th class….we won’t hold that against them.  Any who, it was decided that we should all take a group picture of all the Centralites :)  It is not a cult, I promise.

Congratulations Shayna & Fred, thanks for letting us be a part of your beautiful day.

ADVENTURE AQUARIUM, NJ WEDDING: ANDREA & ROB

She is Absolutely Beautiful: Those were Rob’s first words about Andrea after seeing her walk the halls at the school where they both taught.  Fast forward to this day and Rob’s sentiments were virtually the same “She is All Mine“.   After getting to know each other outside of their classrooms, Andrea & Rob brought their lessons in love to an all new height as they exchanged vows in unique fashion at the New Jersey Adventure Aquarium.  If you missed the love story of these two teachers, check out their engagement session by clicking here.  To begin documenting this memorable day, we met up with the bride and groom to be, at the Marriott hotel in Center City Philadelphia. We had a chance to work again with the talented Katrina of KG Weddings & Events, which is always fun and with the vibrant Nikki of Mae B Films videography.  Here are some of our favorites.  Enjoy!

Andrea’s lovely daughter Aarin.

Makeup by the ever popular Jenece Horton.

We absolutely adore these next two photos.

We love the classroom theme sprinkled throughout the reception.

In case you were wondering, that cake by Desserts By Dana was incredible.

Congratulations Andrea & Rob!  Thanks for entrusting us to document your lovely day.

THE MERION, NJ WEDDING – JANEEN & JONATHAN

With a love that goes all the way back to middle school, some would say that Janeen & Jonathan are meant to be together.  After being ‘together’ for a couple years in grade school, but subsequently losing touch after Jonathan graduated, it would seem that walking down the aisle would be an impossibility.  How ironic though, that some years later, Jonathan would get a job working with Janeen’s dad & see her picture on his desk.  The sparks would have to wait a few years more before they could fly, until Janeen & Jonathan reconnected at their middle school reunion.  The rest is history as they say & that is what brings us to this beautiful day.  Enjoy!

Gorgeous!

Can you tell Jonathan was excited about his wedding gift from Janeen…

Ring Security was too cool for school!

After the wedding, it was over to The Merion in NJ for the party reception.

Never let the fire stop burning….

Congratulations J & J, thanks for entrusting us with your big day!
