Liz and Dan got married back in November at the absolutely gorgeous St. Dorothy Parish in Drexel Hill, PA. The eggshell blue wall and brown and teal tiles behind the alter were so colorful and made a great backdrop for pictures during the ceremony. The day started at Liz’s parents house just a few minutes down the street from the church. I was able to get lots of detail pictures while the girls hung out down stairs having drinks and relaxing before it was time to get ready.
Finally it was time for Liz to start getting ready. I teary eyed mom helped lace her into her dress and get her garter belt on. Liz’s jewlery came from her grandmom who was unable to attend the wedding due to an illness.
Finally it was time for the ceremony…
These two could not stop giggling through the entire ceremony…it was so cute!!
Thankfully the rain stopped and the sun started to come out just as the ceremony ended..
Bubbles are always a good alternative to throwing bird seed at the bride and groom…
After the ceremony we headed over to the Spring Haven Country Club for some group photos before the reception. Even though the rain had stopped there were still quite a few very large black clouds looming overhead. We were only able to take Liz & Dan out on the golf course for a few quick shots by the fountain before it started to rain again. Thankfully they had a large patio with nice landscaping to use as a backdrop for the group and family photos.
After the family photos we hopped on the Trolley they rented from Philadelphia Trolley Works to make a very special trip. As I mentioned Liz’s grandmother was unable to attend the wedding due to illness so since she couldn’t come to the wedding we brought the wedding to her!! It was a very proud day for her grandmom getting to parade Liz around the nursing home dining room in her wedding gown. I’m pretty sure she was the envy of all the residents that day! We headed into the little chapel they had there to do a few family photos with grandmom who couldn’t resist checking out the jewelry Liz was wearing that once belonged to her.
After our visit to see grandmom it was back to the country club to celebrate. Many wedding cakes you see now a days are covered in fondant that is colored to look like chocolate…not this cake!!! Everything you see is pure chocolate. It smelled absolutely amazing!
Another unique thing I noticed at the reception were the table numbers. Instead of doing your run of the mill card with a number on it every table had a sign with a year on it. Under the year was a picture of both the bride and groom from that year. They started with baby pictures and worked all the way up to photos from that summer. I don’t know about the guests by I certainly enjoyed going from table to table to check each one out.
And now for the party…
Liz & Dan you were such a pleasure to work with! I hope to have the opportunity to work with you on future projects!!
