Weddings are always about the people. ALWAYS ABOUT THE PEOPLE. It is such a unique event where two families come together to create generational bonds and love ties it all together. Alexandra and Alex are so incredibly loved by so many...and they know it. So it's no wonder that they are instantly warm and inviting to all that they meet. That they are generous beyond measure. That they are compassionate and thoughtful. And that they love deeply...each other, family, friends, and their communities. I am truly blessed to have come to know them over our time together!
So how does such an incredible couple celebrate their nuptials? WOW. While I certainly hope the photos below can do their celebration justice, I think this day had to be "felt" to truly appreciate just how special it was.
The day began at the Four Seasons Hotel in center city Philadelphia where Alexandra and Alex got ready for their day. We did a quick first look on the beautiful 60th Floor just before leaving for The Philadelphia Museum of Art. We continued with some portraits under their incredible vaulted ceilings.
And not before long, it was showtime! Alexandra and Alex repeated their vows in front of their guest in the museum's Great Stair Hall. Wow. The vows were heartfelt and sincere and the setting was jaw-droppingly stunning. The night was just getting started...
Guests were treated to a fairytale "tent" atop the famous "Rocky Steps" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art! After dinner, the incredible band Starlight got the party going and it...did...not...stop! From start to finish, the band played and we all danced! But we weren't done yet! The night became early morning at the after-party back at the Four Seasons where the Grand Ballroom was converted into a nightclub with DJ Kim Lee spinning into the wee hours of the morning.
This was an incredible event for two incredible people who were surrounded by love from all.
The evening could not have happened without the hard work of Robert Canada at Evantine Design. Their attention to detail was simply masterful.
And of course, the photos below could not have happened without the help of my long time friends, Danny Bostwick and Katie Merkle!
