Theresa & Colin’s wedding at Cescaphe’s Vie took place just this past Saturday. What a party it was on Saturday night! We are barely just recovered ourselves. Theresa & Colin are currently enjoying their honeymoon in Hawaii as it pours rain here in Philadelphia on a cold and gloomy Thursday afternoon. We started on Saturday morning at The Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Center City where both Theresa and Colin got dressed and ready for their day. After everyone was made-up and ready to go we all hopped in one of Cescaphe’s wedding day trolleys on our way to the historic and beautiful St. Augustine’s Church situated at the foot of the Ben Franklin Bridge. The ceremony at St. Augustine was just beautiful. The duo choral singers accompanied by piano, flute and a violinist was really breathtaking to hear throughout the ceremony. Theresa had bagpipers surprise Colin as we exited the church before hopping back on the trolley to take photos at Race Street Pier with the wedding party. Then it was into Center City for some final photos of the bride and groom in front of Colin’s favorite building in the world, Philadelphia’s City Hall.
The reception at Cescaphe’s Vie on Broad Street was full of laughs, mainly at Colin’s expense, dancing, music, flaming desserts and more and more dancing led by one of Philadelphia’s best wedding bands, Masquerade. This was a fun, rowdy and very happy crowd. It was a pleasure to spend the day with everyone involved. Tom and I had a great time with you all.  Thank you Theresa and Colin for trusting us with your memories. Enjoy your photos and enjoy Hawaii!

Alison & Sam’s Horticulture Center wedding took place just last Sunday. It was a good thing we were all in the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center for most of the day because it was a wee bit nippy outside, only a day after it was 75º and sunny. This place is so beautiful for a wedding. It’s spacious, varied and totally unique. On chilly days it can be a welcome respite from the cold. After all, the event space is in an actual greenhouse….nice & toasty. As far as photography lighting goes it doesn’t get any better than the afternoon light inside the greenhouse at the horticultural center. Everything is filtered evenly and beautifully through the glass ceiling which makes all of our photos look perfect right out of the cameras.
Alison & Sam started their day off in Center City Philadelphia as they preparred for the day at The Marriott Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown which sits directly across the street from City Hall. Naturally we set up the first look at City Hall since we were basically already on the property. Like I said, it was cold last week so we didn’t make it too long before the warmth and comfort of the Horticultural Center was calling for us. Once inside the center we finished up the photos with the wedding party before the ceremony in the main greenhouse. Alison & Sam read the vows that they had written to each other in front of about 175 of their close family and friends before Sam broke the glass at the end of the ceremony. The cocktail hour lead into a loud and thumping reception driven by the brass instruments of The West Philadelphia Orchestra. This crew played the crowd into a frenzied Hora to start the evening portion of the celebration off. Alison and Sam, thank you for having us. It was a pleasure to work with you, your families and the wonderfully talented group of top Philadelphia wedding professionals you assembled. Congratulations to you both! Enjoy your wedding photos.

Gretchen & Sean’s Super-8 wedding video was actually shot not on video but on vintage and nostalgic Super-8 film. This is real deal movie film everybody! Think old hold movies from the 60s and 70s! It’s vintage, rustic, nostalgic and freaking beautiful! So not only was Gretchen & Sean’s wedding film shot on lovely Super-8 film, their wedding took place at one of our all time favorite wedding venues, Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ. It doesn’t really get any better than this for us. This was a gorgeous wedding with a beautiful and loving family at a top venue. We were kind of geeking out all day long.

Do you love vintage style and aesthetics? Are you looking for something completely unique? Do you want to capture your wedding day in a timeless and elegant fashion? Then you, my friend want to have us film your wedding day on Super- film! For real. It’s that good.

Enjoy Gretchen & Sean’s teaser clip and happy weekend!

Marie Claire & Tommy’s Super-8 wedding film is of course one of our favorites.  I personally love anything done on Super-8 film and we LOVE working at The Fairmount Park Horticultural Center. Super-8 film was the perfect medium for this summer garden wedding ceremony. The natural light, that extends well into the evening, was beautifully filtered through the greenhouse roof for a good bit of the reception. And as any good wedding does, this one capped the night off with a packed, thumping and sweaty dance floor!

When I explain that we offer real movie film for weddings I often get asked what Super-8 film even is. Allow me to explain briefly.

My family has such wonderful old home movies from when my father and uncle were boys together in the 50s to Christmases and summers down the shore when my sister and I were toddlers in the late 70s. I have always cherished these home movies and I have always loved the look and feel of the real film that my dad shot before video came on the scene in the 80s. The videos of our family are great as well but something about the feeling and beauty of old Super-8 film was lost when our family started recording the major milestones, holidays and family trips on video. Today I shoot all of my own family’s major events on Super-8 film. From my wife and my own wedding to the birth of both of our children to the same trips down the shore as a family that I took as a child. Super-8 film is the way that I as choose to capture my family’s memories.

The vintage medium of Super-8 film captures these moments and those feelings in the dreamlike and nostalgic way that you remembered them. A wedding captured on Super-8 film is simply beautiful and timeless. Enjoy this teaser clip from Marie Claire & Tommy’s beautiful summer wedding!

A Congress Hall Wedding in Cape May is always something special. This beach front hotel and property is uniquely beautiful and quintessentially “Cape May“. It’s got a throw back to another time sort of feel and vibe. And that time is nothing but class and 1st class elegance. Historical photos line the hallways of the hotel and guides give tours of the property dressed in Victorian clothes. You can truly feel the history when you are in this building. We are fortunate enough to work quite often at Congress Hall and it really is a treat for us to shoot here each time we have the opportunity to do so. We’ve done weddings in every corner of the country and I can honestly say that Congress Hall is my personal favorite wedding venue. Like most couples that choose to hold their wedding at Congress Hall, Hope & Jack grew up enjoying summers in Cape May with their families. So when it came time to pick the perfect spot for the wedding day it was an easy decision to invite all of their family and friends down to the shore for a long weekend to celebrate. As we usually do, Alexa and I started the day off in different locations. She was with Jack and the guys at a family home on Poverty Beach while I and our video team started with Hope and the ladies in the bridal suite, Founders Hall. A lively prep (including the groomsmen cruising the streets of Cape May on bikes while weaing tuxes)  lead into an emotional reveal with Hope and her dad before she got to see Jack for the first time. We took portraits around the hotel and the wedding ceremony was held under an almost cloudless sky on the lawn. Kristin from Reveriemade styled all of the details of the day but she and her team really outdid themselves with the cocktail hour tables and details. Once the reception started in the main ballroom it was pretty much a non-stop, controlled chaos of a dance party led by one of Philadelphia’s premiere wedding bands, Milan 77.

Take a look at the video teaser we produced from Hope & Jack’s day. It incorporates all of the crazy party and the impromptu bike ride yet it still tells captures emotional and spiritual core of the day that Hope & Jack had. Congratulations you guys. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and your families. Thank you for inviting us into your lives to share in your celebration.
