Fonthill Castle Wedding of Kira + David (Part 2)

There were just so many special details for Kira and Davids wedding. I could only include some of my favorites; from the white birch chuppa in a field, to the antique sewing machine sweetheart table, so, so many. You can see all the festive partying ending with The Mizinke, a dance for the David’s parents as he was their last child to be wed. A very special day!

Fonthill Castle Wedding of Kira + David – 10-13-13

Earlier this year I was perusing some of Philadelphia’s bridal boutiques and noticed a beautiful selection of “Gatsby” inspired wedding gowns. Hoping one of my fashionista brides might be inspired by then.  I was so thrilled when Kira donned her gorgeous Elizabeth Filmore “Gatsby” inspired gown. She even had a “flapper” wave hairdo and t-strap shoes. And Kira and David were such a fashionable pair, check out Davids custom blue suit by Bindle & Keep! A very special act of love was Kira’s broach bouquet. It was made by her sister. So amazing I just had to do a montage of all the different views. Check back later this week for a beautiful ceremony and reception!

Four Seasons Philadelphia Wedding of Morgan + George – 10-12-13

On the way to their wedding reception at the Four Season Hotel in Philadelphia, Morgan and George stopped off at several iconic Philadelphia locals for some portraits; among them were Broad Street, The Rodin Museum and the fountain at Logan Circle. . My heart skipped a beat when I saw the decor and lighting in the ballroom. It definitely was one of the most beautiful receptions I photographed at the Fours Season.  A special thumbs up to Table Art and Eventions making it so pretty for me to photograph. Well, it was a big beautiful Greek wedding so there was rousing dancing and money flying everywhere. Totally a night (and wedding) to remember!t

Morven Museum Wedding Reception of Deirdre + Bill

I had long been anticipating Deirdre and Bills wedding reception at the Morven Museum and Gardens in Princeton. It was the former Governors Mansion of New Jersey and much of it has been preserved to it’s original state. Adding to the charm was the fabulous tent from L & A Tent Rentals complete with Edison lights adding to the vintage charm. Deidre ended the evening with an adorable dress change and Irish dancing with family and friends! A perfect first time at Morven for me!

New Jersey Bride Magazine Bridal Editorial

Several weeks ago I shared the covers of New Jersey Bride Magazine that I photographed. To top it off there was also a 6 page bridal editorial that is featured inside it’s cover. On a very windy autumn day last September at Mallard Island Yacht Club Michelle Indorato- Santanello of MDS Floral Design  and I planned a beach inspired bridal editorial. It was just such a perfect day and all the talent came together for one of those perfect shoots. I was in photographers nirvana! Finally got around to scanning the feature. Enjoy!

Early autumn at the Jersey shore, and what better place to be than Bonnet Island Estate!  Kimberly prepared for her wedding day at her parents home right on the beach! How perfect! I knew it would be extra special with Michelle Indorato- Santanello of MDS Floral Design doing all the florals and decor. Wonderful working with Michelle again!
