Liza & David
This past fall, Liza and David were the first to tie the knot at FAME, a new industrial loft space with sweeping views of Philadelphia, where they both grew up. The emotion and connection was palpable as the couple said their vows surrounded by misty-eyed family and friends.
Liza and David couldn’t stop smiling through the tears. The reception was equal parts emotionally charged and infectiously fun, with some of the best toasts we’ve witnessed, live music, dancing in front of the city skyline, and Liza and David crowd surfing!
Val & Jen
Jen and Val are strong women. They met and fell in love while working in the hospital, where both provide medical care to some of the worst cases. When you meet them, their strength and grace absolutely radiates, especially together.
We joined Val and Jen at Jim Thorpe for hiking (their pup Saydi stayed home for this one!) and s’mores. Thanks to Jen’s navigation skills, we didn’t get too lost and had a blast getting to know them! Their wedding at Waterworks overlooking Boathouse Row in Philadelphia was gorgeous from start to finish, with more special moments than we can count and romance saturating the air.

Hana & Mike
Hana and Mike’s wedding was a labor of love. They wrote their ceremony together, foregoing the traditional script for something more personal to them and their guests. The ambience was warm and loving, mimicking the couple themselves. Through their love, Hana and Mike found safety to be themselves, yet also inspiration to be better for each other. Hana sees Mike as patient, kind, level-headed, warm-hearted, and loves watching his way with others. Mike sees Hana as caring, devoted, patient, inspiring, and loves her commitment toward family and friends. After five years of blissfully walking, running and rowing toward this day, Hana and Mike said their vows (which they also wrote themselves) in front of loved ones at Public in NYC.

Courtney & Chris
Modern day dating is tricky and probably more so than ever, but these two immediately wanted to marry each other after their first date at London Grill in Philadelphia. Along with their personal vows to each other, Chris’s daughter’s, Riley & Kamryn, had the sweetest words to say during their ceremony. Chris is a loving, hardworking father that is inspired by Courtney to be the best person he can be while Courtney is very compassionate and has been a loyal best friend since the beginning. Together, they are a haven and example to their daughters and loved ones.
Brittany & David
Brittany & David’s wedding at Westmoreland was causal and elegant, with live jazz greeting guests before dinner and dancing. We celebrated David’s birthday and even had a pizza party while shooting portraits on a nearby farm. We also had the pleasure of strolling with them through Philadelphia, a place we all call home.
