Anthony Wayne House Wedding || Jen + Bob ||Philadelphia Wedding Photographer || BG Productions Photography and Videography

The Super Awesome Couple- Jen and Bob

The Wedding- September 26, 2014- Anthony Wayne House

Super Duper Vendor Team- Catering from Jeffery Miller, Wedding planning, styling, and florals from Creative Eventology, Music/Scratch DJ, Video/Be Films, Hair and Makeup/Mack Stylist, King Limousine

Awesome Moments: While I loved the first see between Jen and Bob the first moment her dad saw her was just so special. The love and excitement he had at seeing his daughter getting married was the moments little girls often dream of. And how Amazing did Jen look and those beautiful flowers- WOW!! and how they popped with the bridesmaids in all their different dress. I Love when they do that- they each get to show off their own personalities. and Bob was so handsome- he outfit was perfect for their venue- and those shirts- so Cool!!

The light was beautiful for their sweet ceremony with their parents by their side. and Jeffery Miller and Rachel from Creative Eventology did an AMAZING job with the wedding decor. So simple and so beautiful at the same time. Goes to show you dont need a bunch of “stuff” to make your wedding beautiful and special. Just a few elements that really reflect your personality.

We wish the happy couple years of love, fun, and adventure- and oh yeah- plenty of Star Wars!!

September 30th is here, October is now less than 24 hours away, which means the second most popular wedding month is upon us! We’ve had several posts about all the amazing things fall weddings can include and all the creative ways you can incorporate fall themes (if you missed these posts, scroll back through! And be sure to poke around at the amazing weddings photos from the amazing weddings we have already captured this fall!). We can’t wait to capture the upcoming fall beauty that will be sure to be present in our October weddings, but want to post about something else this blog post.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and you may wonder what Breast Cancer Awareness and weddings have in common.  A lot actually! The amazing charity, Brides Against Breast Cancer, will be in Philadelphia the weekend of October 11th at the Sonesta Hotel.  This charity takes donations of wedding gowns from past brides and sells them for much less than their retail price (at AMAZING shows I might add…the VIP ticket is DEFINITELY worth the $40 price! The food you eat, the vendors you meet, the goody bag you take home and the giveaways make this show a MUST for any soon to be bride), and all proceeds go towards breast cancer research and support.  If you are a bride interested in donating your gown, follow the link for directions. You will be helping an amazing cause AND can write off the donation come tax time. Win win!

Want more opportunities to use your wedding to raise money and awareness for charities?  Here are a few ideas (and this is the perfect time…charities note how around the holidays donations often drop, as we all have more expenses)

Donate your flowers!  Nursing homes, hospitals and cancer centers always welcome donations of flowers to brighten up patients rooms or lobbies.

Donate your bridesmaids dress! Philly’s Fairy Godmother  (actually located in Doylestown) is a charity that provides prom gowns and formal gowns to girls who otherwise could not afford one.  They accept shoe and jewelry donations as well (and yes, again it is a tax write off!).

Donate your double-gifts.  No, you don’t have to tell your guests you did this!  But most brides and grooms receive a double gift (or, a ‘what the heck is THAT?’ gift) that they do not need. Consider donating it to a local charity thrift shop (one of my favorites is Laurel House, a domestic violence shelter for women and families) where proceeds help cover their administrative costs.

Want to donate as your favor, but still give a favor? Check out Feed Your Soul cookies. A portion of the proceeds from every sale is donated to St. Jude’s research hospital (and the woman who started it is a local girl from Hoboken, NJ!) You can also create a dessert bar of her creations to wow your guests.

Happy planning!

Talamore Country Club Wedding || Montgomery County Wedding Photographer || BG Productions Photography & Videography

The Stars: Cynthia and Michael

The Venue: Talamore Country Club, Ambler Pa

Th Details: Loved all the little pops of red. The bouquet- the shoes-the bridesmaids dresses- the ties. The wall monogram was SPECTACULAR!! and how FUN was the guys undershirts all representing their favorite super heroes. And even better when the STUNNING bride joined them!!

My Favorite Moments: Their first-see was SOOO sweet. Tears (on both sides), laughter, Love- it doesn’t get any better than that. and after taking their pictures they exchanged gifts together on the staircase before their ceremony and this was such an AWESOME moment. It was due to time restraints that they did it together- and I wish all our couples exchanged them together! When he got to put the necklace he had just given her around her neck- WOW- so special!!

The Party- Everyone (and Really Almost Everyone) hit the dance floor song ONE and didn’t stop except to go t the bar and have fun in  the BG Booth! This was such a Great PARTY!!!

The Team: Special thanks to Megan and Pedro from Arrow Creative Planning and Event Design- they did a fantastic job and were so fun to work with!! Cynthia and her bridesmaids looked gorgeous thanks to Cheers 2 U Event. TheFlowers were from Moles Flowers and they were really beautiful. and Anthony from East Coast Events Killed it and kept the dance floor full!

  • 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!!
