Philadelphia City Wedding at the Ben Franklin Ballroom || Briana and Marcus

Talk about a Stunning Philadelphia City wedding at the Ben Franklin Ballroom. Brian and Marcus live in California but they were married here in Philly and what an Incredible day had by all!

We had only met this awesome couple via chat. But we knew they were sweet and adorable. I got to meet Briana and her mom a couple weeks before the wedding when I did a walk through meeting with them. It was such a pleasure meeting her (and her Awesome mom) in person. I felt an instant connection with them. So when the Big day came along, I felt like we were already great friends.

Al captured Marcus getting ready while I was photographing Briana at the Hotel Monaco. Both of them were super chill and just a pleasure to hang out with. And how Gorgeous did Briana look. Just so stunning in her Galia Lahav wedding dress. I LOVE dresses that are unique, match your personality and match your venue (this one is important and often overlooked!) And of course Marcus looked great too. And we always love taking photos inside the beautiful Hotel Monaco, a great getting ready hotel in Philadelphia.

We photographed their first look at the 2nd National Bank and then we had a ton of time for photos of just the two of them.

We always love it when we aren’t rushed and can take time getting all those must have photos. This allows us to get the best photos possible that are not only beautiful but natural. We always want to capture the real you! And we could have stayed out there all day photographing these two. We finished up with their fun wedding party and headed over to the Ben Franklin Ballroom for their ceremony and reception. Everything looked so beautiful! And talk about a great reception! This was certainly a dancing crowd and the dance floor was packed all night!

Weddings like this are exactly WHY we love what we do and the couples we photograph. We hadn’t met Briana and Marcus in person since they live across the country, but that didn’t matter. We were just a truly great match for each other. And this made the whole day go by in such a wonderful way. We feel blessed to know this Awesome couple and wish them nothing but years of love and fun!
