William and Julia’s Wedding

William and Julia are many photographers’ ideal clients. They are super laid back and casual, true to who they are, pleasant to be around, calm when most are stressed out, and all around great people. Their wedding was held Halloween night at the College of Physicians in Philadelphia and it was truly an international affair.  Both had family fly in from several other countries and it was so fun to witness the joy of families reuniting for such a great event. The day started at the art deco styled Hotel Palomar where both Julia and William were getting ready. They had decided not to have a wedding party so this portion of the day seemed to be so relaxed and calm compared to many other weddings.  They both had close family members with them helping them prepare and just being there to support them.

The ceremony was held in the Library room at the College of Physicians. It was decorated simply but beautifully; a great reflection of the two of them. They spoke their vows surrounded by their family and officiated by Julia’s close family friend.

William and Julia had decided they wanted to do a first look, where the Bride and Groom see each other before the ceremony. First looks can be great for putting nervous energy to rest and allowing the couple to have a few moments to themselves before the craziness of the day continues. Its like a big exhale for some people and a chance for them to absorb what is happening in that moment.

The reception is where the colors really came out! They had beautiful Italian masquerade masks for all of their guests, a live band who knew how to get the guests dancing, great food, a photo booth, and friends and family who knew how to have fun. They had little touches of halloween in their details but they kept it classy and subtle. One special highlight was William’s sister singing him a song that she had written for the Bride and Groom. It was such a notable moment that spoke volumes of the love shared between the two siblings.

It was such a privilege to witness the marriage of these two wonderful people and I wish them all the best as they continue in their journey through life. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your wedding day!
