Everyone loves a story that starts with high school sweethearts. How about a story about a couple that met when they were in Kindergarten and went back to get married at the church at their school? Not only does this couple have an adorable story but their wedding day was a non-stop party from start to finish.
When I got to the brides house, Bridget and her bridesmaids were blasting music, snacking on adorable custom cookies by Two Sweet Boutique, and just having the best time getting their hair and makeup done. I knew the day was going to be fun because it was early in the morning and it already felt like a party. Once Marisa from Flawless Finish Artistry finished the brides hair and Cezannegraue was done with the makeup, Bridget’s mom and sister helped her get into her Pronovias gown from Designer Loft NYC. Bridget looked like a vision when her dad came to pick her up and drive her to the ceremony in a Rolls Royce.
At the church, where Bridget and Nicholas first met when they were five years old, the groom was patiently waiting for his beautiful bride to walk through the church doors. Looking dapper in his Chadmoore Tux, the excitement was written all over his face, and once the church doors opened, Nicholas couldn’t hide his emotions. The ceremony was heartwarming and emotional, and as soon as the couple shared their first kiss as bride and groom, everyone had one thing on their minds – party time!
Though still being fairly new to the scene, Cescaphe’s The Lucy has already made a name for itself as an iconic venue in Philadelphia. Located right on Broad St, with a beautiful view of Philadelphia’s City Hall right outside, this wedding venue is the perfect backdrop for any elegant couple’s wedding day.
When guests walked in to the party, they were greeted with an outfit change by the groom, bridal party entrances that you had to see to believe, and toasts that had everyone cracking up. The live band, Masquerade, had everyone out on the dance floor having a sing off. Even the people who don’t love to dance were on the dance floor singing and dancing all night.
Bridget and Nicholas, thank you for having me there for your beach engagement, your wedding, and all of the special moments in your life. I am honored to be a part of these memories and hope you will treasure these photos forever.
