We finally kicked off our 2012 season, our 14th year documenting weddings in Philadelphia, with the wonderfully green St. Patrick’s day wedding of Maureen and Ryan. We started off at Maureen’s childhood home for the getting ready and lovely light for some portraits before heading over to St. John Neumann Church in Bryn Mawr to meet up with guys who were all full of silliness. The ceremony was full of laughs and tears. Ryan was mistakenly called by another name, and of course that name stuck with him for the rest of the day. Maureen is a teacher so having her past and present students involved was important to her. They each carried down a white carnation to hand to them, they in turn used it for the Blessed Mother presentation. I really got choked up watching these students walk down the aisle, it truly was beautiful. It was a beautiful day out, so we spent a lot of our time for formals outside enjoying the weather. I remember when we met last year talking about never knowing if it might snow on their wedding day. We’ll take the warm sunshine and then the unexpected flowering trees that we found once we got over to the Desmond at Great Valley. It was decorated beautifully, as always, and loved the green uplighting that carried the St. Patrick’s day theme. They did a wonderful job greeting their guests, enjoying every moment, but the day went by way too fast. Thank you Maureen and Ryan, we loved being with you and your friends and family. Congratulations!!
Always enjoy working with:
