Kristen and Christian strolled alongside the Merchant Exchange Building, looking into each other's eyes as Kristen's veil flowed behind her. That simple look was a visible display of a love between them that was absolutely delightful to capture.
The wedding day is a pleasure for us because our vendor friends are experts in their fields. Our friends at Philip Gabriel Photography find it quite natural to create gorgeous photographs, and no less true with the picture-perfect duo of Kristen and Christian.
At The Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, seats were filled in anticipation of a lovely ceremony. The traditional Catholic service was something both Kristen and Christian will remember for the rest of their lives together. The church was a lovely backdrop for a stunning photo shoot after the ceremony ended.
Later on at the reception, the dance floor was packed in The Crystal Tea Room. Don Eaton Band started to play and the guests couldn't help but tap their toes. Before long, every guest in attendance was hearing an old favorite or a fresh jam!
Finley Catering provided five-star service and plating for all the guests, showing why they are one of the top caterers in Philadelphia. Carl Alan's fragrant bouquets of red roses and white lilies completed the scene for a movie star look. The reception looked like it was too good to be true!
The amount of friends and family that came to celebrate Kristen and Christian's union was incredible. From far and wide, people came to celebrate their marriage and dance the night away!
There's an old saying, that a sorrow shared is half the sorrow, but that a joy shared is twice the joy.
- Emily, Maid of Honor
Kristen's father toasted the couple, emphasizing that every guest at the wedding had a significant role in their family's lives and that he couldn't be happier to have them witness the new union.
Kristen and Christian once again walked hand in hand, to their last stop of the night, Broad Street. There's something about the city lights and speeding cars that sets the scene pefectly for one last intimate portrait session.
"My Hubby - we're family,"
Kristen leaned in and whispered to Christian. Christian smiled and replied:
Congratulations to Kristen and Christian on starting their lives together!
