Another awesome Atrium at the Curtis Center Wedding in the books! Simona & Brandon had perfect weather, temperature and were on time for everything. I knew they would have a one of a kind day after their GTKY session at Ventnor Beach down at the Jersey Shore. Brandon was actually a groomsmen in Amanda & Josh’s wedding that I photographed a few years ago. Josh was, of course, one of the groomsmen in this wedding. Amanda & Josh were also guests at Jessica & Justin’s wedding. I need to see them at least once a year when I am shooting!
Simona & Brandon had all their preps at The Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia. It is one of my favorite stylish hotels in the city. Simona had an incredible dress from The Wedding Factor. They had their first look at the park across the street from The Hotel Monaco and Brandon could not believe his eyes when he saw Simona. Prior to the wedding, they had made arrangements to photograph at this amazing outdoor restaurant in called Talula’s Garden. We Ubered around the city photographing and met up with the bridal party back at Washington Square.
Curtis Center wedding ceremonies are beautiful and they had detailed beautifully for their 250 guests to watch. The Chuppah was custom built with crystal beads draping all around the sides, which as Rihanna would say, “shined bright like a diamond”. CTO Band provided some awesome music for the reception and it was packed with dancing, speeches and tons of other classic festivities. The album we designed and created for them is one of a kind with a custom muted glass cover that see’s through to the first page. In addition, they also have two amazing canvas wall art pieces of their entrance into the reception with the rose petal cannon and a beautiful portrait in front of City Hall.
