Philadelphia’s Crystal Tea Room Wedding || Tara + Tom ||Philadelphia and NY Wedding Photographer || BG Productions Photography and Videography

While September 13, 2014 may not have been filled with sunshine, blue sky, and those little white fluffy clouds- it was filled with Love and Beauty! This was the day Tara and Tom were married at St. Magdalen church in Media, PA. And it was a Perfect day- despite the weather and the electricity going out twice right before the ceremony (thank goodness for backup power!!) We knew it was going to rain all week- and no matter how much we hoped it wouldn’t (so they could take gorgeous photos in Philly’s Historic District) we had to be practical and have a plan B (we had plan C as well!!)

Al and I scouted out areas close to their venue- The Crystal Tea Room. We looked at the alcoves at City Hall and then were told That the Finley’s (who operate the Crystal Tea Room also operate the Union Trust) said we could use Union Trust for picture taking!! Oh how AMAZING it was to shoot in there (and we cant wait to shoot there in April for a wedding!) This is such a cool and unique venue.  And after taking some gorgeous photos there the rain stopped and we were able to go out and get the Broad Street shot which was super important to them.

Everyone helped to make this such a great day. Their families and bridal party was so friendly and great to work with. All Dolled Up and Amanda D’Andrea Hair worked with Tara and her girls to get them the looks they wanted and talk about GORGEOUS!!! Loved the way Tara looked!. And that dress! From Bijou Bridal in Armore was perfect for her!! Though we cant leave out how handsome Tom looked and LOVE LOVE that he had a Jacket change- how cool is that!!!)

The staff at the Crystal Tea Room and Finley Catering were Fantastic and the food was Fabulous! and they were so nice to us (other Philly venues could take a lesson on how to treat vendors) and the place looked AH-MAZING!! Thanks to a great team of professionals- After Tara and Tom worked closely with Finley Catering-Rachel and her team from Creative Eventology stepped in for Day of Coordinating!! Charles Deviln Designs made everything look so beautiful and the band Masquerade Live kept the dance floor hoping! 

We were thrilled to capture all the love, fun, and beauty and thanks to Daniel and Brian our Fantabulous BG Team for holding it down with us!! We hope you have a Great time on your honeymoon in Aruba!! Contact us at to discuss us capturing yoru special moments!!
