Tattooed Brides ||Philly Photography || Bully Family ||Ash + Alyssa

LOVE these 4!!! Ash and Alyssa are getting married in May at the Helicopter Museum- how cool!!! Besides just being awesome when we first met and we knew we were the perfect match, they also happened to have 2 rescue dogs!! We told them about the BG Bully Breed Sessions we are doing to bring attention to the breed and people that are often judged for having tattoos! Both often face discrimination.

You my have seen the post we did about bringing attention to these discriminations through a special photo project-click here to read it. We will be concentrating on families that have bully breeds. But for some, like Al and I our 4 legged ones are our family!! So we didnt want to leave people out for not having human kids!! Over the course of the year we will be shooting a variety of families. I have read so many amazing stories about each rescue and cant wait to share everyone! I will use this blog but we have a new facebook group. We would LOVE you to follow it! find it here

We were Thrilled that Ash and Alyssa and their adorable two rescues-Bowie and Broddy (who is deaf and blind in 1 eye- the white one) wanted to be a part of the project and do a little mini “engagement session”!! It was a beautiful day and we loved hanging out with them!

and we also have a hashtag #bgbullyfamily  you can follow along on my instagram bg_productions

if you are interested in being a part of the project please email me at cathie.bgproductions@gmail.com

Enjoy the photos…..

Hollyhedge  Estate Wedding || Katherine+Joe || Philadelphia wedding photographer

Spring is finally in the air and we were so glad the sunshine came out for Katherine and Joe’s wedding at the beautiful Hollyhedge.  You may remember this fun couple from their engagement session (check it out here)

Katherine and Joe are the third from a set of La Salle University friends whose weddings we have done. And we know we are Always in for a good time with this crowd!! Katherine looked gorgeous in her wedding dress from Say Yes to the Dress shop in Huntington Valley and her hair  done by Platinum Hair Company in New Hope and a friend of hers did her makeup.  All her bridesmaids dresses came from David’s Bridal and I loved the different styles and the pop of peach mixed in with the grey. Each girl had a dress that was reflective of them and they looked great!!

But my Favorite part of the day, after their first-see of course- was their Beautiful ceremony!! It was such a beautiful day and the whole thing was so lovely! And it was so cool having the Annabelle Rose Trio playing music from the balcony! and you could just see how much Katherine and Joe are in love by the way they looked at each other- both sweet and silly faces!!!

After some formal family pics and cocktails their banging reception began. The room looked great with all the flowers from Pod Shop Flowers and the dance floor was hoping thanks to their friend Greg from In the Mix Entertainment. I really liked their personal touches like their invitations from Red Heart Paper Company, pictures of cats and themselves on the tables and their super cute cat cake topper! So hope you enjoy their Awesome Hollyhedge Estate wedding photos.

and thanks to Jen and James for being part of the BG team and helping us capture all the fun!

    Barb - Kat and her mother looking to each getting ready captures such a beautiful moment! Great work!

  • April 21, 2015 - 8:21 pm

    Katherine - I like the full bridal party shot in front of the steps (the one including the kids)!

  • April 21, 2015 - 8:48 pm

    Leanne - Agreed, the one with everyone on the steps is great. It was no easy feat getting us squeezed in, but you got us all and BOTH handsome ring bearers! Great job to Katherine and Joe for looking so fly, and to BG for capturing it :)

  • April 21, 2015 - 8:52 pm

    Deborah Sharp - I love them all but my favorite is the one where they are holding hands and walking out of the gate smiling.

  • April 22, 2015 - 8:09 am

    Colleen Alcoff - It’s so hard to choose because they all look fantastic! I really like the one where Joe sees Katherine in her wedding dress for the first time! The look on his face is priceless.

  • April 22, 2015 - 9:07 am

    Gabrielle - So many lovely shots, but my vote is for the gate shot – the looks on their faces are priceless. :) Close second was the tree shot; what a gorgeous background! Also, “Just Meowied” might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, ever.

  • April 22, 2015 - 5:05 pm

    Jen Parker - All the photos are great! I agree with Kat – bridal party on steps!!

  • April 22, 2015 - 7:08 pm

    Joe - I like the one of Kat’s face.

  • April 23, 2015 - 7:20 pm

    Dottie - My vote is for the mr and mrs sign… or the bridal party

  • April 23, 2015 - 9:02 pm

    Lois Malone - I like the black and white one of the wedding. Why? Because I’ve never seen anything like it and it’s cool. I also like the one of Katherine and Joe looking at each other with the gate behind them.

  • April 23, 2015 - 10:09 pm

    jennie - They look great ….my favorites the black and white overview of the wedding…very creative

Wedding ideas from BG Productions- The Little Touches

I am a big fan of little things. Little touches, little gestures, little ideas, all make a moment that much bigger and better. So this blog is dedicated to the little things I have found over the past few weeks that I have just fallen in love with, and am dying to see a couple use on either their big day, or later celebration…or both!!

BG Blog 1

Mr. and Mrs. Fork Set. How cute is this? Picture this sitting on your sweet heart table, or waiting for you to use come cake cutting. This pair will be a keepsake for years to come (use them on anniversaries!), not to mention take ADORABLE photos for your wedding album. These are available at the etsy shop Pumpernickel and Wry, and other sweet imprinted silverware pieces are also available (the cake cutter with imprinted ‘you make life sweeter’ would be a great addition too!)

Personalized Dates Print:

BG Blog 2Perfect to be propped up on the gift table, printed large enough to be a guest sign in, or given as a wedding gift. Marking all of the dates that are special to you.  I’ve seen these continued to add other special dates like birthdays, dates of the birth of children, dates when people became pet-parents – the ideas are endless and too sweet!

 

Super Hero Cuff Links:

BG Blog 4

We have seen a spike in super hero themes at weddings (and why not?! Just because you are getting married doesn’t mean you have to let your inner child completely go!) and would love to see a groom and his groomsmen sporting these down the aisle!

Life does not stop after the wedding! In fact, it is just the beginning. So keep these things in mind for the years to come:

Many couples struggle with what gift to get for their first anniversary, because they want it to be a true reflection of their first year. I LOVE this idea:

BG Blog 5A token of your first year together that you can carry with you for years to come. Available at etsy (where else?!:))

BG Blog 6

Need something for your second anniversary?  The second anniversary gift is traditionally ‘cotton’ and this map is printed on cotton (can also be printed on paper if you would like to stay traditional and use it for your first anniversary…and I also think it would be an amazing wedding gift for your bride or groom to be, noting that as you build your life together you will mark each place that your adventure of marriage takes you.  However you choose to gift it, it will become a beautiful keep sake of all the adventures you have had.

Happy planning, happy wedding, happy marriage! and do you have any Wedding ideas to share?

    Vicki - This is totally amazing

A Romantic Downtown Club Wedding || Philadelphia Wedding Photographer || BG Productions

What a Beautiful Bride!! Kristin looked Amazing in her dress from Bijou Bridals (Martina Liana)  and her bridesmaid’s dresses from Beholden. And of course Chris looked equally handsome in his Vera Wang tux from Men’s Warehouse. We were so blessed that the rain held out and didn’t start until later in the day.

The couple got ready at The Down Town Club after the bride (in  and her ladies (dressed in their Bijou dresses) had their hair and makeup done by Your Day Your Way.  and had a super sweet and romantic “first-see” moment before grabbing the bridal party for picture time before heading to Old Saint Joseph for their ceremony. We returned to the Down Town Club for their rocking reception. The room looked gorgeous. The staff at Cescaphe did a wonderful job setting up all the couples personal momentos. I LOVED all the concert tickets showing all the fun shows they have seen together. Loved all the flowers and floral arrangement from Beautiful  Blooms. The guests danced the night away thanks to the sounds of Millennium.  We wish Kristin and Chris a lifetime of love, fun and Amazing live shows!!
