We met Kim and Rebecca at the Marriage Equality Expo in Philly a while back. Then we really got to know them better when we did their Longwood Gardens and Game of Thrones Engagement Session. so we knew that their wedding would be filled with love and lots of laughs! And of course it didn’t disappoint! We started our day with them getting ready at the Holiday Inn would allowed us to use a cool little strip of greenery across the street for their first see. Hey- in the city there are hidden gems everywhere- you just have to look for them. They totally both teared up when they turned and saw each other- so sweet!! While it was hot out- it really wasn’t too terrible for their photos at Penn Treaty Park. That is where we met up with their friends and family in the wedding party for a few groups shots and individuals ones with the couple. Love all the greenery there is for lovely backdrops. And the park wasn’t too crowded, though there were some cool spots we couldn’t use because there were already people there. But a nice couple was kind enough to move for a few minutes to let us get a little of the Ben Franklin Bridge in the background.
Their ceremony a (and reception) was at Richmond Hall with Catering by Marios– a really cool looking building that I believe used to be a church. I loved that their day was filled with lots of personal touches such as having their guests sit in a circle, pouring sand, a handfast, 4 readers, jumping the broom, and later sharing some scotch as they cut their cake!! they spent their reception hanging out with friends and family, dancing, and just really truly enjoying the whole day! This is really what every wedding should be- nice and chill, full of love, and being with the ones you love!
We know you two are in for a lifetime of laughter, grand adventure, and Lots of Ren Fairs!!
