Knowlton Mansion Wedding|Michelle and Chris

It came as no surprise that Michelle and Chris's Knowlton Mansion Wedding ran as smooth as could be. Michelle is definitely a Type A personality and helped organize things perfectly!

We had a perfect day and itinerary. We started our day at the Loews in Center City and stayed in the area for Michelle and Chris's first look and Bride/Groom photos. After a beautiful ceremony in Old City, we made the trip to the historic Knowlton Mansion for the party!

A big thank you to Michelle and Chris for being an absolute joy to spend the day with!! They were easy going, fun and we wish them an amazing life together!

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day:
