Some people are just like a ray of sunlight. Jennifer and Kenny are those people. Documenting their special day at the Down Town Club was a delight. But even more importantly, it was the greatest joy to be a part of their celebration and witness their love.
Wedding Preparations at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco
It is no secret that Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia has some of the most stunning suites. Jennifer was getting ready at the fabulous Presidential suite. It was spacious, had some exquisite interior and most importantly, had s0me phenomenal natural light. Jennifer’s beauty is unparalleled, both inside and out. The most she stepped into her made everyone in the room tear up. She looked angelic, to say the least.
At the same time, Kenny was getting ready in his suite. It was a morning filled with a lot of excitement and anticipation. Both bride and groom couldn’t wait to see each walking down the aisle
Wedding Ceremony at St Augustine Church
I will let the photos do the talking, but it’s worth mentioning that Kenny couldn’t take his eyes off his gorgeous bride. The couple couldn’t look happier. The ceremony was concluded by a beautiful exit through St Augustine’s red doors. It was fabulous!
Wedding Portrait in the Old City and City Hall
Jennifer and Kenny had a distinctive vision of what they wanted their photos to look like. I always encourage my couples to open up about the ideas and style they have in mind so I can tailor our work and create photos they have been dreaming of. The couple loved the combination of the bright and airy and dark and moody styles. And for that, we chose the First Nation Bank for their bridal party photos and then headed to the City Hall for a more of a dramatic look for their couple’s portraits.
Wedding Reception at Down Town Club
Weddings at Down Town Club are always one of my absolute favorites. It was the first Cescaphe’s wedding venue that I worked at many years ago ( I lost count!), and I’ve been in love with this place ever since. Jennifer and Kenny performed one of the most spectacular first dances. The night was filled with heartfelt speeches. Jennifer’s father played and sang a song for his beautiful daughter, which was a very special and emotional moment for everyone in the room. I can go on and on about how magical this day was, but I’ll let the photos do the talking. Jennifer and Kenny, thank you for having us and for trusting us with everything. You reminded us once again why we love what we do so much.
