So where do we start? Last yeast we have met with Zack and Bianca for the first time, and photographed their engagement session. From that time it was clear - these two are perfect for each other. We had a fantastic time shooting Zack and Bianca at their favorite Philly locations. They were all about candid moments - and we got a chance to have fun and capture all pure and unstaged moments and emotions!
After that epic engagement session, we were looking forward to Zack's and Bianca's big day! And it was magical! This couple is truly one of a kind. Don't get us wrong, all of our clients are awesome, and we love them all, but Bianca and Zack's love for each other, their amazing sweet personalities stole our hearts.
The day started at the newly renovated Courtyard Marriott Downtown, where our bride and her ladies were getting ready for the big day. Bianca looked absolutely stunning in her White by Vera Wang wedding dress!!! To compliment the ensemble, and be super comfy, bride picked nude TOM's shoes. (Not pictured in this blog post, but we can assure you, they looked adorable!)
Once everyone was ready, we headed just outside of the hotel for some pre-ceremony portraits. With city hall across the street from the hotel, it was an easy and ideal photo backdrop. We had to be a bit tricky to make sure that bride and groom wouldn't see each other before hand, so all ladies were outside of the building, and all men were photographed in a courtyard of the city hall. We had about 15 minutes for all portraits, but we've made it work!
Traditional Jewish ceremony as well as following reception were at the magnificent and elegant Ballroom at the Ben. The ceremony was so powerful and emotional that majority of guests were tearing up. Two brothers walked Bianca down the isle, where Zack along with couple's parent and closest of family and friends were waiting under the huppah.
Before the reception, we got a few shots of the ballroom and some fabulous details and the wedding cake.
Reception part of the evening was full of great moments - a beautiful first dance, heartwarming speeches from made of honor, best man, and parents, lots of dancing, and of course cake cutting!
