Union Trust Philadelphia Wedding

When you have a Union Trust Philadelphia Wedding you're probably not going to be terrible interested in stopping by Milkboy on Chestnut Street for a photo op on your wedding day. That is unless you met at Milkboy and wanted to stop by to pay homage to the place where it all began for you!
I love a couple like Nikki and Kevin. They are very low key and chill, super sweet and they love to cook at home together! My kinda people!!

A big thank you to Finley Catering and the staff at Union Trust and of course Nikki and Kevin for trusting us to capture this amazing time in their lives and for being such a pleasure to be with!!

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day:

Getting ready took place at the Loews Hotel in Center City. I love shooting at the Loews because of its central location which is close to several landmarks and also because every room has great light!

Nikki and Kevin wanted to hit several meaningful Center City and Old City Philadelphia locations for their bride and groom images. We made sure we had plenty of time to visit those locations without being stressed about being late for the ceremony at Union Trust. Being able to enjoy the beautiful weather and not rush really helps us to make beautiful images for our clients!

I worked with the officiant, Julie Cassidy, last year and really loved her approach to a wedding ceremony. Just like Nikki and Kevin, she's very chill and her approach is a short, sweet and to the point ceremony. I loved her parting words for Nikki and Kevin after their vows:

"May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitements a marriage should bring. May you need one another, but not out of weakness. May you want one another, but not out of luck. May you look for things to praise, often say, “I love you!” and know that you’re not perfect, life isn’t perfect, but you’re perfect together...".

So perfect!!
