Union Trust Wedding || Jenna + Andrew || BG Productions

WOW!! Talk about a Stunning Union Trust wedding!! Jenna and Andrew's wedding was a perfect blend of romance, emotion, beauty, and fun!! Jenna's dress has to be one of my all time favorites. Her dress was from Marchesa at Nordstroms  and was simply Stunning!! I love the beading and the cape like train!! And I knew that Andrew and his groomsmen were going to look totally awesome too. He is a suit manager at Nordstroms and they all had custom made suits. We love when grooms treat themselves to something great too! But I think what he wore best was his smile. All day he wore that smile!! Hands down one of the Best first-see moments ever!! He was just filled with emotion when he first saw Jenna that he broke down- and she did too! They chose to read their private vows to each other right after their first look on the 33rd floor of the Loews Hotel in Philly. This was such a tender moment as they each read to their soon to be spouse! They wanted to do it this was and not in the actual ceremony itself! And what a great decision! Union Trust is such a cool looking space and Finley Catering does a fantastic job. Not only is their food great they are super nice to us and trust me- that makes a Huge difference! Al, Chingi, and James covered this wedding and got some incredible shots. The flowers were provided by Chuck Devlin and the dance floor was HOPPING (this is a total dance crew) thanks to Mancia Events! We know Jenna and Andrew are going to have an awesome time in Greece when they go there for their honeymoon in a couple of weeks and we wish this couple nothing but love and fun for many many years! Thank you so much for allowing BG Productions Photography and Videography to be a part of your special day!

    Gabrielle - THAT DRESS. Holy cow, how gorgeous. I’m voting the indoor train-length shot, holding hands with the skyline in the background. That’s absolutely a shot you want hanging in your living room!!

  • August 31, 2015 - 1:27 pm

    Melissa Pierce - Beautiful photos, beautiful wedding day! My favorites are the two of them dancing on the bench seat at Union Trust (so fun!), and the one on the 33rd floor at Loews where they’re holding each other’s hands and her cape train trails behind her. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! Great work, BG!

2016 Wedding Menu Trends || Wedding Tips and Advice

We have had some of the most stunning weddings in the past few weeks and are once again in awe of being able to do what we do (please scroll through to see our most recent couples!).  We love our clients and are so glad you become our friends!   We have also had several new client meetings and can't believe that 2016 is almost completely booked.  To say we feel excited and blessed is an understatement.  And the wedding trends for 2016 are simply fantastic.  We've done a few posts about the fashion of 2016, so now, here is a post all about the food.  And it is going to be A.MA.ZING!!!
The first trend we are seeing is a focus on fresh and locally grown foods.  
With seemingly everybody trying to follow a healthier diet (Paleo, Gluten Free, The Primal Diet; they are all here and not going anywhere!), as well as many people being more cognizant of using local food sources, caterers are catching on and providing options that feature locally resourced menu items and are special diet friendly.  You will see menu's of  locally sourced beef, fish, fresh vegetables and organic fruits.
We will also see The Tasting Menu. 
We all love cocktail hours and dessert bars because they give us the opportunity to taste several different foods and allow us a plethora of choices of things to fill up on.  Well, the main course is getting in on the fun now too.  A twist on food stations (which often were 3 to 4 different main dish selections), a tasting menu of main dishes is normally comprised of 5-7 different options, each food area offering a sampling of something that would normally be considered a main dish.  Think mini plates of 3-4 bites of steak and mashed cauliflower, small bowls of rice topped with a few scallops, or slices of eggplant topped with veggies and mozzarella.  If you are looking for something less formal, this menu style is perfect for that as well.  Think French fry station with several dipping sauces to try, mini burgers/sliders with several toppings available, or a grilled cheese station with sandwiches made with baguette bread and served with a side of tomato soup in a shot glass.  These menus are great because they can be served later on through the night; host your cocktail hour after your vows, then enjoy some time with toasts and dancing before you open these stations up.
Foods that reflect things about the couple is huge now too.  
You can work this into your cocktail hour or tasting station reception; consider a mini soup station that features New England Clam Chowder to represent ties to New England, mini-cheese steaks to show ties to Philly, a fondue station with an array of Wisconsin cheeses, fried green tomatoes or pickles to represent Southern ties, or some mini-ribs or brisket to indulge the barbecue lover.  If you are doing a dessert bar, incorporate mini desserts of your favorites; mini ice cream sundaes, chocolate chip cookies with shot glasses of milk, personal size pies or petit-fours of your favorite cake flavors.
The bar is getting in on the fun too.  In lieu of full bars, weddings are hosting wine tastings or beer flight stations.  Enjoy a sample or two of beer or wine than decide on which you want to enjoy with a full glass.  This is a great place to have fun and bring in personal touches too; have some beers from local breweries or choose a wine from a winery you and your fiancé enjoyed on a special date.
2016 is bringing in so many fun twists that we know it is going to be a fantastic year.  Share with us your ideas!

Cairnwood Mansion Wedding || Kim + Fiory || BG Productions

Kim and Fiory had the perfect  Cairnwood Mansion wedding. It is one of my favorite venues and it was such a gorgeous day.  But all that paled in comparison to the love and beauty of this uber sweet couple! We knew fro our first meeting that were a perfect match for the BG Family!! And getting to know them better at their Philadelphia engagement session really solidified it. While things got a late start we didnt let that throw us! We were still able to get all the photos done before the ceremony began! Their first-see was Awesome! Fiory was just so happy to see Kim when he turned around and he even cried. It was so touching. And he couldn't take his eyes off of her- who can blame him- she looking amazing in her wedding dress from Bijou Bridal and hair and makeup from Salon E'Toile! Their ceremony took place on the front steps of the Cairnwood Mansion. It was the perfect setting and the weather was perfect! Guests spent much of the evening outside enjoying the great night air after dinner and all the formalities were over. The tented area was perfectly set. The blue table cloths and the candle and flower centerpieces from International Florist were absolutely perfect.  And the food from Sage Catering was Delicious and the staff were really great to work with! I had yummy crab cakes!! Of course the dance floor was hopping all night too thanks to Bob from Philly Event Group! Thats one of the things I like about the set up there- you can open the large windows and doors and feel like everyone is still together- but then there are also other rooms that folks can sit in and talk, have some coffee, if they want. I really enjoyed when the bridal party came down the staircase with their fun props! The BM and Maid of Honor gave their toasts from the staircase looking at the couple and as they were surrounding by family and friends. Her MOH did something Really cool- as a wedding present she bought them a star and named it after them. She told them that all their loves ones who had passed on were now looking down on them. The combination of the fun props and funny and sincere toasts  really set the tone for a laid back, fun party atmosphere! We know Kim and Fiory had a blast and Jen (my Awesome Possum 2nd shooter for the day) and I had a great time capturing the whole day! thank you so much for choosing BG Productions as your Philadelphia wedding photographers!

    Stacey - I love so many! My favorite of them is the one where they are nose to nose, eyes closed. Just taking it all in. My second favorite is the one of her and her father, just about to walk down the aisle. Beautiful!

  • August 27, 2015 - 8:05 pm

    Kim - I love the picture of me and my dad!! We have so few pictures of just the two of us. I do love the pic of the mailbox and all the little items I spent so much time on like the almond tin and table number. All look great! I’m greedy and want to see more:)

    Gabrielle - OMG too many gorgeous shots to choose from! For a print, though, I’m voting for the night shot with the moon in the background. So AWESOME.

Bartrams Garden Wedding | Carlie and Jared || BG Productions

You know Al and I love Bartrams Garden (it was where we were married). It is such a sweet spot! So we were really excited that Carlie and Jared hired BG Productions to capture their beautiful wedding. Even though Al and I weren't shooting it- we knew they were in excellent hands with our Lead Associate Team of Chingi and Jen (who then moved to hold down the BG booth)! And they did such a wonderful job capturing these too! Carlie had a very unique dress that actually had a pink tone to it and Jared had a really cool blue suit. They both look Amazing!! Though their son Benjamin may have stolen the show with his total cuteness!! Bartrams is under going some construction and some changes and are now having their reception in the field with a tent- while it is still really pretty- I have to say I am sad they arent using the really cool brick courtyard anymore- it was just so much more intimate and no cars in the background behind where the couple sits! But it is still an awesome location and when you are working with Diverse Catering you know the food is going to be great! They did most of the stuff themselves with the help of family and friends and everything looked great! We know they had a lot of fun because Carlie smiled the whole day and Jared just couldnt stop looking at her- can you blame him!! Carlie and her friends were very much the selfie crowd- Chingi even caught them out in the field taking a selfie while she was doing some portraits with them! lol!!

Vie Wedding Photography || Melissa + Lloyd ||BG Productions

(Please make sure to leave a comment on the blog saying your Fav. photo and WHY and help them win a FREE 8x10 of the most popular!)

Wow! This was just an AMAZING wedding! We fell in love with Melissa and Lloyd the first time we met them! We knew they were a perfect match and they felt that way too! Not only are they Gorgeous, and Sweet- they share my home state of Ohio!!! They are also the most humble people we have ever met. I will never forget when we first met and Lloyd was talking about being a basketball coach- i of course ask him what HS he coaches for! lol!! He just smiled and was like "nah, I don't coach HS". after a little more talking he said he coached for the Sixers! Other, more boastful men, would have led with that. But this is just how they are. And this was so evident when we saw them interacting with their family and friends at the cocktail party the night before that they so graciously invited us to as well as the wedding. We have really gotten to know them by having dinner together and catching some of the games- pretty fun sitting in the "family" section cheering on the Sixers! We hope we can continue to foster a friendship as well as be their photographers (and videographers) for life- no matter where they may end up!! You may remember these two from their Philly engagement session. Well their Vie wedding was just spectacular. I cant even tell you how many Amazing photos I have that I didnt put in this mini album. I have already been told I put too many- but these posts are for our couples and their friends and families. Sometimes this is all others beside them see- and i know this crowd wants to see as many as possible! Especially since their ceremony was Unplugged- and YES- everyone stuck to it (ok there was 1 guy- but he was quickly reminded of the policy by his date and my stare as I leaned in and said- "they are serious- they don't want to see 1 phone or camera in their pictures!! lol and what a treat not to have all of them ruining such sweet and tender moments of their ceremony. We knew we wanted to have a different look than all the typical Philly places. And I think we Nailed it! We started with them getting ready at the Loews Hotel. Lloyd has some of the most Epic getting ready shots ever! and Melissa looked just gorgeous- but really it was the smile she wore ALL DAY that was her best accessory! The couple had gone back and forth on doing a first see or not. Lloyd was really into it (at first). But he let us know at their walk through meeting that he was going to surprise her and do it! and by surprise i mean- not telling her until it was happening! It took a lot of coordination (including a fake timeline sent to the bride) and a lot of reassuring Melissa that we had it all under control and not to get lost in the details. Yes- it was a Crazy plan and we knew it wasn't working that way- but poor Melissa didnt. And what a testament to how much she Trusted the BG Team- she just went with the flow! Of course Al and I were Really nervous (never really a great idea to surprise a bride with such a big thing on her wedding day- but he was willing to take any backlash that may come our way!!). We had a special team meeting to go over the complete plan, lots of texts back and forth with Lloyd, and letting the Loews and staff at Vie in on the surprise!. and it was the MOST AMAZING moment ever!!  Because of the first see we were actually able to do all the photos that Melissa was really wanting, and more!! They knew they wanted to showcase murals but yet also have the softer romantic side. By stoping at the Dr. J mural from the Mural Arts Program and getting it allowed us to get some of the coolest Philadelphia photography we have ever gotten with the groom and his guys! And that mixed with the great sun setting shots at the park (I saw just a small sliver coming through the trees and knew we needed to capture them with it) really showcased the beauty of the day. Vie (Cescaphe Events) did a wonderful job with the reception. Everything looked beautiful and the food was Fantastic! A friend of Lloyds from California came into town to be their DJ, DJ Jay Biz,  and played some dope music all night! A very special thanks goes out to our BG Team- Brian- 2nd video, Chingi-2nd photographer and Jen- assistant and BG Booth goddess! They KICKED ASS!! Here are some of the other vendors- Beautiful Blooms (florals) Philly Hair and MakeupWedding Paper Divas (stationary) Spososabella (wedding dress) Nordstroms (Adrianna Papell) bridesmaids dresses) Lloyds suits were both custom made. We know they are having a blast on their honeymoon in Italy! We cant wait till we finish all their photos and video- we know they are gonna Love them!

    Lloyd Pierce - THIS IS AMAZING….

    OF course, we love them all! My personal favorite is me walking my bride down the streets of Philadelphia with my glasses on and the trolley in tow outside of LOVE Park…we look like we are ready to hit the RED CARPET and all the attention is on us! She is gorgeous and i’m just trying to keep my cool to stay up!

    Sandy Shorr - My favorite is the one of you both standing in the sunlight next to the window with the skyline outside. The full length one with Melissa holding her gown with her back to the camera, and the bouquet across the room. This is such a beautiful photo, so artistic, it looks like it could be a painting. I love the light. This is such a romantic photo! Love it! Wonderful job BG!

    Nancy Ghoston - Breathtaking is absolutely right! I have so many favorites, but these three are tops: #1 Lis kissing the top of Lloyd’s head while he kisses her hands; #2 Also San’s favorite, at the window with her holding her train and the skyline is behind them: and #3 the close-up of their first dance, with Lloyd’s tender expression and Melissa’s demure downward glance. You’ve captured the light and the mood and the joy perfectly – thank you, Cathie and Al xo

    Leah Ghoston - Aaaahhh!! SO many to love! You guys captured this incredible day so beautifully! Ok- my favorites are i)the up close faces on the PSFS roof ii)the 2 where they are silhouetted against the windows inside hotel w/ the skyline in the back (Melissa’s back!) iii) the two of them with the LOVE statue iv)The two of them in front of the mural with the veil blowing v) the evening light through the trees and the forehead/hand kiss. I could go on and one- this is going to be one hell of an amazing wedding album! Love you guys xoxox

    Teresa perdue Hodnett - Every single one of the pictures are amazing but to be honest if I have to pick one I cannot so I’m a pick two. The one with Dr. J in the background and all the grooms men and LP and the one with Lloyd and Melissa close together with the city in the back ground… ❤️ Beautiful

  • About Us

    Our approach is a photojournalist style. But that being said- dont worry, we still make sure we get all the posed formal pictures. However we love to capture all the funky shots. i am usually on the floor at some point and on a chair if allowed by the venue! Al can be seen with his video camera high over head on the dance floor and often using his glide cam for all those really smooth shots! We also fully support the DIY weddings. There is so much you can do yourself or through other handmade goods. there is a plethora of cool Indy wedding blogs and we encourage our clients to check them out. Mostly we believe your wedding day should be all about you and your personalities- not what some wedding magazine tells you it should be. so go ahead- think outside the BOX!!! So check out our work and we look forward to capturing your BIG day!!
