Bartram’s Garden Wedding || Ali + Mark || Philadelphia Wedding Photography for Unique Couples || BG Productions Photography + Videography
I think most people know that Al and I have a VERY soft spot when it comes to shooting weddings at Bartram’s Garden- If you don’t know- it is where we say “I Do” 7 years ago!! And it is still one of our favorite places in the city!! WE get so excited every time we book a wedding there and each time it is a new, fresh, lovely experience!!
This past Saturday (Sept. 6, 2014) was just Awesome!! Despite a late start due to a late limo driver- we quickly were able to get back on track because Ali and Mark were so Amazing to work with! Our day started with Ali and her bridesmaids getting ready at her parents house in Narberth! Her dress was stunning and we got to capture her and her other love- Mona, their dog!! She even had a special flower “collar” made for the occasion! After getting Ali dressed and capturing all the moments and details we head to the Inn at Penn to get Mark and the guys!! Mark was the Perfect groom!! He had everything all laid out for us- and all the different ties were even cooly displayed on the table just waiting for me to take their picture!! All the grooms man were super friendly and fun- but the ring bearer stole the show! We quickly dubbed him “the fish man” because he had a 2lb bag of swedish fish and I LOVE those!! and he shared!!!
We departed the hotel to get ready for their first see in private before beginning some photos with just them and their bridal party and even got all the parent shots in before the ceremony!! The ceremony was officiated by their aunt and was even able to get finished before the skies opened up and the rain came (actually started towards the end of the cocktail party so folks could enjoy the garden for a bit)
Everything at the reception was perfect with the guidance of Joelene from In Your Shoes Event Design and Mike from Diverse Catering. The flowers for the couple and bridal party were from one of our FAVS, Love n’ Fresh Farms and the table flowers were from Triple Tree Farms which Mark picked up from the Farmers Market in Clark Park before the day began.
Their DJ was a friend who has his own company, JBM events and the bride and her girls hair makeup and hair were perfectly done by Bella Angle Bridal Hair and Makeup and ceremony music by Driftwood Duet and Strings!!
We are SOOOO thrilled we got to capture such an Awesome couple and wedding and work with Great vendors!!
