Betsey and Andrew were married on October 5, 2019 at the new Four Seasons Philadelphia!
Betsey and Andrew held their first look in the J.G. SkyHigh Lounge.
The lounge was a stunning backdrop for the lovely couple to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. With views stretching all the way out into the countryside, the relaxed lounge played host to Betsey and Andrew’s joyful reunion. Guests watched with anticipation as they suddenly became firsthand witnesses of the first couple to get married in this brand-new location.
As the day went on, Betsey and Andrew enjoyed spending their day in one of the most beautifully designed new venues in Phildelphia. From the guest rooms to the ballroom, shiny surfaces are everywhere at the new Four Seasons. The multiple balconies and observation decks have railings and walls constructed from clear materials, allowing a wide-angle view of the city and creating an elegant, luxury feel. This can be challenging for someone with a camera to avoid catching their own reflection, but when you have the right experience you can use the reflections to your advantage to create a dreamy, abstract feel. How did we do?
You are in the sky! The ballroom is closer to the ground, but the views from the enormous windows are awe-inspiring to say the least. Philly locals will recognize the views from the other skyscrapers in Center City, but the Four Seasons brings an all-new perspective. The city’s skyline is famous for constantly changing, and this moment has been highly anticipated by all fans of Philly architecture.
For photographer Sarah DiCicco, the new location was a welcome change of pace. As one of Philadelphia’s most highly prized photographers, Sarah has seen the city’s high-end wedding locations so many times she has lost count. It’s nice to try out something new!
All the features of the new Four Seasons have one thing in common: everything looks so clean and new! In the middle of a busy, bustling city, this hotel stands out for all the clean lines, bare surfaces, and smooth textures. Evantine Design showed why they’re Philadelphia’s premier event designer and coordinator. Evantine helped Betsey and Andrew bring out their own style into the ballroom with plenty of white roses, floating candles, and white fixtures. The chuppah was made of clear material, emphasizing the transparent, clean aesthetic. Each couple’s event will look slightly different, and the Four Seasons gives a beautiful canvas for personal style choices.
In their reception, Betsey and Andrew continued the celebration. From the first dance to the cake cutting, Betsey and Andrew were ready to enjoy having their friends and family all in one place. LA Starz Band was busy jazzing up the crowd with their infectious sounds. The Four Seasons catering staff ensured that the guests had all the drinks and food they wanted. Andrew even performed a song for Betsey, who watched lovingly as her new husband serenaded her.
Later in the evening, Betsey and Andrew stepped out onto the balcony for an intimate photo session. The dizzying view of the streets and buildings below played counterpoint to Betsey’s shimmering party dress. The evening ended back inside the Four Seasons with plenty of drinks, desserts, and dancing.
