Cherry Blossom Time at the Horticulture Center

The Horticulture Center in Fairmont Park  is truly an urban oasis and when the cherry blossoms are in bloom it is the perfect spring wedding venue.  Inspired by early spring blooms and budding flowers galore, Lauren James Events collaborated with an incredible team of vendors (see below) to turn this venue into a whimsical and enchanted evening. It was perfect timing for this styled wedding shoot! Thanks to this talented group for giving me such pretty things to photograph.Event Design: Lauren James Events

Union League Wedding Reception of Jessica + Vincente

Jessica and Vincente returned to the Union League for a most romantic reception. They were a wonderful dancing pair and Vince provided me with many perfect “dips” throughout the evening. Jessica surprised Vince with a Batman grooms cake. He LOVED it. Go Batman! Jessica’s sons also tore up the dance floor and each finished the evening with a dance with mom!Wedding Coordinator: Lynda Barness of I Do Wedding Consulting

Philadelphia Wedding Portraits of Jessica + Vincente

Spring was very late in coming to the northeast this year, but as luck would have it we found the one Cherry Blossom in bloom at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Combining that with the wonderful iconic sites of the city such as the Rodin Museum and Broad street, I would say the Jessica and Vince’s portraits were picture perfect!Wedding Coordinator: Lynda Barness of I Do Wedding Consulting
