It is no secret that Crystal Tea Room weddings are one of my favorites. The magnificent view of the ballroom and its dazzling chandelier. The exquisite bridal suite with its tall windows and heavy velvet drapes and full-length mirrors. The Crystal Tea Room’s iconic pub room, that has become everyone’s favorite bridal party photo backdrop. The list goes on and on about why this Philadelphia wedding venue is just remarkable.
Allie and Max’s day was extraordinary in many ways. It was the overflow of pure joy, love, and genuine happiness. Even though it was a job for us, it didn’t feel like that. We were enjoying every moment that was unfolding in front of our lenses!
Wedding Preparations At Crystal Tea Room
Allie was getting ready at the Crystal Tea Room’s gorgeous bridal suite. That room is one of a kind and is truly a wedding photographer’s dream space for wedding preparations. Allie’s style is very delicate and sophisticated. All her bridal details were carefully selected and the end result was nothing short of amazing.
At the same time, Max was getting ready at the Loews Hotel, accompanied by his groomsmen and parents. Afterward, Max left for the Crystal Tea Room for their First Look with Allie.
Crystal Tea Room Wedding Ceremony & Reception
After the couple had their first look, it was time for the bridal party and family photos at teh City Hall. We managed to complete all the photos just in time before the rain started pouring down.
Both wedding ceremonies and reception were held at the Crystal Tea Room. When Allie was walking down the aisle, Max couldn’t hold his tears, even though they had already seen each other. And then there were some more happy tears and even more happy laughter, endless dancing, heartfelt speeches, and loving glances. Allie and Max, thank you for letting us capture all your magic and for trusting us with everything from beginning to end. Your day was one for teh books!
