Masonic Temple of Philadelphia Wedding

If you want to feel like a princess while walking down the aisle, look no further than having your wedding ceremony at the Masonic Temple of Philadelphia followed by a reception at the Crystal Tea Room! Santina and Bobby held their ceremony in Renaissance Hall which was constructed in 1891. This brilliant scarlet red room is decorated in the Italian Renaissance style and has a very opulent, old world feel about it. I loved the contrast of the red tones in the room against Santina's white dress!

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day:

Getting ready took place at the Loews Hotel in Center City. There was a very nice mix of nervous energy and fun with this group which is rare when you have a bridal party of 27 people!

Emotional Dad's will never, ever get old. Well done Carmen!
Ugh, I'm going to be a wreck when my baby gets married and I see her for the first time!!

A Message From The Bride

"From the minute Ralph and I had our first conversation, I knew that he was the one I was going to trust to photograph one of the most important days of my life. Yes he was professional, but most importantly he made me feel comfortable. He literally went above and beyond to try and get to know my husband and I as a couple, so he could truly understand our relationship in order to create the most perfect photographed story of our day. He was able to capture the most beautiful photos on our wedding day, and I can not even begin to tell you how many compliments my husband and I received after sharing our photos with friends and family. From our outside center city Philadelphia shots, to the most fun champagne popping bridal party shot, Ralph did an AMAZING job capturing the most important elements of our day. I cannot thank him enough for being a part our of special day and would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for any special event in your life".

The other beautiful thing about the Masonic Temple of Philadelphia is its location. Walk right out the giant 17 foot high doors and you're on Broad Street looking at City Hall! So many location options for creating images.

First Dance

Santina and Bobby brought in EBE's "Monte Carlo" to entertain everyone for the evening. They kicked things off with "Speechless" by Dan and Shay. Could anyone have written a song more perfectly suited for a first dance by a Bride and Groom?!?!
