Union Trust Wedding Photography by BG Productions
We loved photographing Abby and Andrew’s Union Trust Wedding. You may remember this couple from their Cira Green engagement session. Luckily this time on September 25th we had no rain interrupt the fun at their Union Trust Wedding Photography Philly
After they both got ready at the Marriott in downtown Philadelphia we headed over to City Hall for their first look. They’re both into the city and its architecture so the archways of City Hall seemed like a perfect location for such a special moment. We then took photos all around that area and Dilworth Plaza with them and then we were joined by their wedding party for some more awesome photos! Wedding Photography Philly
We were not sure if there was going to be any difficulty communicating with Abby and Andrew and their wedding party due to the fact that they and most of their wedding party are deaf (as well as a good portion of the guests). Her sister is not and was able to offer us a lot of assistance in communication. But after we had shot their engagement session we knew it would not be a problem at all. In actuality we found the day to be peaceful and everybody cooperated so well. The wedding party was so easy to work with. And everyone definitely had a lot of fun! We think there’s so many different ways that you can communicate and so it’s not always about your voice, words or the language. Wedding Photography Philly
Let the festivities begin…
We then headed to their ceremony and reception venue, Union Trust. We have shot several weddings there and always enjoy working with Thomas and the crew there. They’re always so organized and keep things on the timeline. And they treat us vendors exceptionally nice which is always appreciated. What a difference that makes. It always feels like a team effort (and isn’t that the way it should be?).
Union Trust also has some great architecture and lighting. It makes for some pretty cool portraits with the couple and lighting throughout the day. One of my favorite parts of the reception was getting to meet their DJ, Nico DiMarco. Nico is a pretty well-known deaf DJ. You may have heard of his twin (Nyle DiMarco from Dancing with the Stars). I knew their DJ was deaf beforehand and I did a lot of reading about him before the wedding. I find it so amazing that he is deaf and DJ! He seriously kicked ass! The dance floor was never empty and he even joined in to teach some of the guests in line dances. Everyone was having a blast, including Al and myself! Union Trust Wedding Photography
We feel so blessed to capture such a great wedding. Here are some of the vendors that I know were part of the team who all made the day possible:
