Like many other 2020 weddings, Jessica and Tom’s wedding has been postponed twice due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, they were determined to make it happen in the summer of 2020. I remember being on a phone call with Jessica, the bride, talking about how we could adapt their wedding plans to the new circumstances and new reality and still make their day memorable and unique. ” I just want to marry Tom, for us to become husband and wife. And I still want the day to be beautiful and special”, Jess said. From there on, I knew the day would be wonderful and unforgettable.
Breve – Cescaphe’s new solution for outdoor weddings in Philly
Originally, Jessica and Tom were supposed to get married at Tendenza in Philadelphia. However, due to the restrictions for indoor gatherings in Philly, the couple had to switch to a different Cescaphe venue. Cescaphe Event Group came out with a perfect outdoor solution for their couples and offered their new event space called Breve. Overall, it couldn’t be a more perfect fit for Jess and Tom’s Philadelphia wedding.
Wedding First Look and Ceremony
Regardless of it raining almost the entire morning and afternoon, we were able to hit all of the Philly photo locations that Jess and Tom had envisioned. Jessica and Tom did their first look and wedding portraits by the steps of the Second National Bank and had some more portraits taken with their bridal party at the Race Street Pier.
The ceremony took place at the phenomenal St Augustine’s Church in Philadelphia. The rain stopped exactly by the time the couple walked down the aisle after the ceremony. You can see in the photos below how excited they both were when exiting the church and seeing a clear sky!
Needless to say, it was a perfect, remarkable day. Jess and Tom showed us one more time that true love has no limitations, can stand strong in the face of all the restrictions and regulations, and still endure!
