ARTESANO IRON WORKS, PA WEDDING : DANIELLE & KALEFE

The Look of Love – Can’t you feel the love from the above picture?  They are too cute!   After meeting back in 2005 at a house party during their undergrad college years, the time had finally arrived for Danielle & Kalefe to express their love for one another and for the world to see.  We could not have asked for a better way to finish our summer weddings this year (despite the rain), than to get back together with Danielle & Kalefe and their diverse families and friends from all over the world.  If you missed their ‘Spelman meets Morehouse‘ – Engagement Session from back in the spring, be sure to go back and check it out here.  We appreciate them allowing us the freedom to document their beautiful wedding. Enjoy!

We were able to head over to the Double Tree Hotel here in Philadelphia to catch some action of the organized chaos of the guys getting ready.

Even the intermittent rain could not stop them for enjoying the intimate moment of their first look together before they became husband & wife.

Although its almost right in our backyard, this was our first time working at Artesano Iron Works, and we must say we adored the artsy feel of the whole place!

Danielle & Kalefe surprised their guests with a surprise DJ set in the middle of the party, and it turned out awesome!

Congratulations D & K!  We know that your best days are in front of you, but thanks for letting us be there to document your amazing start!

BEAT STREET STATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY : RAYNE & KAREE

 

We almost can’t believe that we are already 4 months into the year.  What that means for us is that wedding season is about to pick back up & we couldn’t be happier!  Our very first wedding of 2014 is this awesome couple above.  If you have been coming here often, you will certainly remember Rayne & Karee from their engagement session, just over a year ago at Merion train station here in Philadelphia.  Fast forward to 2014 and we were able to shoot the beautiful union of the two at Beat Street Station also here in Philadelphia.

Rayne’s beautiful mother seeing her daughter, almost ready for her big day.

Rayne presented each one of her girl’s with a personal gift to show just how much they mean to her!

Karee getting the finishing touches before the ceremony.

In keeping with the frame theme from their engagement session, they decided to bring along a prop or two!

It was our first time shooting at Beat Street Station and we must say, we were impressed!

Don’t hurt her Mike!

Before the day’s festivities ended, we were able to sneak away for a few more B & G portraits.

Congratulations again Rayne & Karee, and thanks for trusting us to shoot your big day.

REGAL BALLROOM WEDDING : KAREN & SHERON

A while back, before the bitter cold & snow that has hit the Philadelphia region set in, we got a chance to enjoy the nice fall wedding of Karen & Sheron.  We first met Sheron on the day of the wedding, & it was immediately clear to us that the two of them blended very well together.  The two of them seem to be some of the most easy going spirits you could ever meet & their love for one another on this day was evident to anyone who was there to witness.  We started off here in Philadelphia at the Hilton Hotel, before heading over to the Regal Ballroom.

Can you tell Karen’s mom is excited to see her baby in her wedding dress for the first time?!

After Sheron met up with his bride for a first look in the hotel, it was time to head out for a few bridal portraits before heading over to the Ceremony.

While taking a portrait of the happy people, we had mom & dad in the background showing a little love of their own….we love the reaction after the fact!

Then it was off to the Regal Ballroom to make things official!

We had the opportunity to work with our friend Clorise Watson of C. Watsons Decor, who did another wonderful job on the room decor.

Congratulations Karen & Sheron, thanks for sharing your day with us!
