Dreamy Philadelphia Wedding

This dreamy Philadelphia wedding started off in Old City with a first look at Elfreth’s Alley. Elfreth’s Alley is a street in Philadelphia which is referred to as “Our nation’s oldest residential street (and is the perfect backdrop for photographs). This wedding was lovely in so many ways. Erica and Daniel planned the perfect day for traveling around the city for photographs. I love when my couples decide to do a first look to allow more time for pictures ( especially for a Philadelphia wedding).  The two of them make a perfect pair. We headed to Independence Park for formal portraits then to the Tendenza (in the Northern Liberties Section of Philadelphia, PA) for the most dreamy romantic ceremony. The Tendenza is one of Philadelphia’s hottest wedding venues! If you are looking for the perfect Philadelphia venue with a modern twist this is the perfect place.

Portrait Locations: Elfreths Alley ; Independence Park

Rustic Glam Wedding-Ash Mill Farm

I am swooning over the portraits we were able to take at Ash Mill Farms for this gorgeous rustic glam wedding. This wedding is the perfect inspiration for brides wanting to bring a rustic romantic feel to there wedding day. Carrie Anne’s vision for wild flowers and adding a bit of glamour came together perfectly. She traveled on a road trip over the summer to New Orleans where she was inspired to try on Sue Wong designers wedding gowns. She knew then she had found the perfect gown. This amazing dress has beading detail and flows perfectly for a bride looking for a dress that is not so traditional. This Gatsby glamour look was completed with a rhinestone headband and greek goddess sandals. We started off with a first look for Carrie Anne and Nick at Peddlers Village then headed to Ash Mill farms for formal portraits. This location made for a stunning backdrop. To our surprise there was even a magical swing for the gorgeous couple to have fun with. Nick wore his navy whites and was looking great! It was the perfect day for an outdoor ceremony. Under a rod iron gazebo the two were wed then it was off to the Warrington Country Club to dance the night away. Carrie Anne even had personal touches that were fabulous such as a fun photo booth with props for guests to interact.

Paul J. Spetrini - Ashlee, I love this gallery. What a great look and feel to these photos. I love the unique combination of the inked bride and the very traditional military groom and the lighting for a lot of these is awesome.
Gives the photos a really cool and distinctive flavor.
Great job!

Sheila DeNardo - As grandmother of the groom, and now grandmother to Carrie Anne, and grandmother to two of the groomsmen, I have to say that in knowing them, you captured their personalities. These photos are absolutely beautiful! I love how natural they are, and by saying that I mean that there is no stiffness to the subjects, they all look happy and non posed. Beautiful!

Amy Santos - Rustic romance is right! What a great gallery of wedding photography at Ash Mill Farm. All the details blend so well together and that ceremony was so full of light! Beautiful work.

Parker - What a beautiful rustic, yet glamorous, wedding! I love the American flags in the background in your portraits.

Ailecia Ruscin - What beautiful wedding photography at Ash Mill Farm! I love your muted tones and who doesn’t love a patriotic wedding with a groom in uniform! Beautiful shots, exquisite composition and editing. I love your bridal portraits and attention to detail. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Lori Foxworth - Absolutely gorgeous! Ash Mill Farm was the perfect wedding venue for a glamorous, rustic wedding. The bride’s Sue Wong dress was a perfect match for your film work. I always love your portraits and details. Stunning work as always!

Andrea - The hand beading on the Sue Wong wedding gown is amazing! Beautiful wedding photography, Ashlee

Cassie Xie - That dress! That headpiece! And man oh man, I love a groom in uniform 🙂 The scenery and trees at the Ash Mill Farm are beautiful! The ivy walls are so pretty and you did such a great job capturing the natural peace of the location. You can tell the couple had such a wonderful day, such great photos!!

Kelly Loeffler - Love your style. the beautiful light in these pictures, I love it! This brides dress is so different and I love the detail on it. The swing pictures are my favorite. the way you capture the the look in their eyes when they see each other is perfect. You did a great job on this wedding.

Ballroom at the Ben

I am swooning over this Philly wedding that took place at the Ballroom at the Ben. Noelle and Jason got married at St. Pius church then it was off to the city for us. Noelle’s vision for her wedding was stunning. And her wedding gown was to die for!! This glamorous Philadelphia wedding was bursting at the seems with bling, a gorgeous gown and so much more!!  We headed to Washington Square for bridal party portraits then to the Ballroom at the Ben to party!! This wedding was filled with timeless details and the perfect elegant design. I adored the blush and champagne colors that tied in for the perfect color scheme for this wedding day. This is the perfect inspiration for a bride looking for a wedding filled with lots of glamour!

Rustic Farm Wedding

This gorgeous rustic farm wedding started off on the bride’s and groom’s farm where they live. Not only did it make the perfect backdrop for photographs but we were able to include there chickens for a quick feeding.  We then headed to St. Katherine’s for bridal party photographs then off to the reception to dance the night away!!

From the sweetest bride- We are so happy this day has finally come! We worked hard to make our day uniquely us. For months we had all these ideas and finally seeing it all put together made us so happy. My favorite part of our ceremony was planting our marriage tree. We’re glad we didn’t go with the traditional unity candle lighting, as we now have a beautiful tree to remind us of our special day, our love, and the joining of our families. I was not nervous about getting married, I was more nervous that something would go wrong during the day, but luckily our family and vendors truly helped make it a day to remember.

Glamorous Philadelphia Wedding

Jessica and Mike’s glamorous philadelphia wedding went off without a hitch. We began portraits and getting ready photographs at the Penn’s Landing Hilton hotel then made our way to Penn’s Landing for a special first look. Everyone was thrilled to be able to share in Jessica and Mike’s first look especially there adorable daughter Hadleigh. Having a first look on your wedding day allows for numerous portrait locations. We next explored the Harbor Pop up park and even were able to snag some cotton candy. Right before Mayor Nutter married Jessica and Mike we took photographs at the pier. The pier is a gorgeous location for portraits. After the ceremony it was all dancing and singing to Bachelor Boys Band, who kept the party going on all night long. Congratulations Jessica and Michael!!
