Bellevue Wedding of Leigh + Thomas – 05.26.13

A true town & country wedding; Leigh and Thomas wanted the best of both worlds. The couple said their “I Do’s”  at the brides parents home in a beautiful country setting and then traveled to center city Philadelphia for their reception at the Bellevue. So cute, Leigh is part of a rowing team and the girls chose to show their prowess by “supporting” the groom. I always love the evening city views from terrace on the Bellevue. Best wishes Leigh and Thomas!
