After their Getting to Know You session in Central Park, Laura & Jarett were ready for the big day. They were an absolutely amazing and fun couple. The bridal party was also incredible. Laura got ready in her bridal suite at the Downtown Marriott in Philadelphia. The area around the Downtown Marriott hotel in Philadelphia is awesome to photograph at. There are so many places to go photograph with couples that are very close. Cindi from the Bridal Garden was there to help her into her complicated dress and to make sure things ran super smooth all day. The ceremony and reception were held at the Crystal Tea Room wedding venue. This is one of my favorite venues to work at in Philadelphia. The great thing about photographing a Crystal Tea Room wedding is that there is so much space in the venue. It can hold about 500 guests and the cocktail space is also not cramped but quite open.
Music was provided by Jellyroll, one of the most amazing dance bands–I get the chills when I am capturing the fun of wedding that has them playing. My assistant even thought they put a CD in at one point because of how amazing they sound. If you have not hired a band please check out Jellyroll. Kurt the band leader is incredible to work with also. I love photographing a Crystal Tea Room wedding!
This is what happens when you add The Jellyrole band to a wedding!
