If I had to summarize Christine and Brad’s wedding day in one word, it would be show stopping. I know that’s technically two words but they are the most fitting words. From the bride’s stunning wedding dress to the jaw dropping reception venue, everything about this wedding day was epic.
While the groom was getting ready alongside his dad and brother, the bride got ready at the house that the groom built for the couple. When Brad first started building this house for himself, he also started to get pretty serious about his future with Christine so he decided to make the house a bit bigger for their future together. When the house was finished, he proposed to her in this house so it’s only fitting that she spent the morning of their wedding day getting ready there.
As Theresa from The Posh Bride and Sarah Giovinetti finished Christine’s hair and makeup, the bride’s mom helped her with her dress. Christine’s L’amour by Calla Blanche wedding dress was subtle but sexy. It was also really special to her because she had sewn a piece of her mom’s old wedding dress on the inside.
Being the owner of her own dance studio, it makes sense that Christine chose The Academy of Music in Philadelphia as the most beautiful backdrop for her and Brad’s wedding day. Not only did the bride choreograph her first dance with her husband but she also choreographed a surprise dance for all the guests. The bride and her bridesmaids put on a show that then opened up the dance floor for the rest of the guests to party the night away.
Christine and Brad, thank you so much for choosing me as your photographer. Your wedding day is one that I will never forget. It was beautiful, fun, and so full of love. You two are such a sweet couple and I wish you nothing but the very best in life!
