Jessica and John got married at Osteria, a Schulson Collective restaurant. Guests dined on award winning, homemade pastas from chef Jeff Michaud, while the bride and groom exchanged vows on the intimate, glass enclosed patio of Osteria.
Before arriving at the Philadelphia restaurant for their ceremony, the couple stopped at a few of their favorite local city spots to take some portraits. Since Jessica and John both live in Philadelphia, they wanted to make sure to capture the liveliness of the city in their wedding day photographs. For their modern portrait session walking around Philadelphia, John wore a charcoal grey suit and Jessica wore a sleek low-cut dress.
While the couple wanted some stylish, contemporary portraits around the city, they also wanted something soft and romantic. This is why the day after the ceremony, we drove over to the most romantic place around the Philadelphia area: Longwood Gardens.
Jessica switched out her chic ceremony dress for a dreamy Mac Duggal gown fit for a princess. Actually, while walking around Longwood Gardens for their editorial wedding portraits, a young girl approached the couple and asked the bride if she was a real life princess. Is that not the cutest story you have ever heard? It was so sweet!
Jessica and John, thank you so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer. It was so fun documenting your wedding day and taking photos both in center city Philadelphia and Longwood Gardens. These photos are equal parts genuine and whimsical, and that is exactly what I wish for you two – a life that is beautifully authentic to you and also a glamorous fairytale.
