Winter Cescaphe Ballroom Wedding of Shannon & Mark – Philadelphia, PA

Shannon & Mark had a very, very, very cold day for their Cescaphe Ballroom wedding. I think it topped out at around 18-19 degrees. They are so positive that it would be amazing no matter what. The bridal party was really fun too. There was an unscripted groom pants dropping for a few shots which you will see in the images. Not the day to randomly wear your army camo boxer briefs. They had their wedding ceremony at St. Anthony’s in Trenton, NJ. It is a beautiful church and I have been there about 5 times in the past year and a half. The priest there is very easy going and I love working with him. We went to a mansion that was close to the church to create images for them. They did 5 minute shifts in and out of the limo, as I always do when it is cold/hot outside. On the way to center city for a few images in front of City Hall it started snowing very hard. We did make it to Cescaphe just in time for cocktail hour. I love Cescaphe Ballroom Weddings! You should never miss a second of cocktail hour. I always try to plan the timeline that way for all brides. Overall it was a wonderful day and am looking forward to delivering an incredible album to the bride and groom!
