Amanda and Marty were married at The Hyatt at The Bellevue on a beautiful day. Their wedding was classy and elegant, and the Bellevue in Philadelphia provided such a stunning backdrop with its old architecture, grand staircases, and balconies overlooking the city. Amanda and Marty are the sweetest couple, and so very much in love. I was so moved by their love that I found myself tearing up when I was editing their photos! Their wedding was a dream to photograph and I loved being part of their day. Here are some of my favorite images from the day!
I am so incredibly honored to have Amanda & Marty’s wedding featured on one of my all time favorite wedding blogs – the Black Tie Bride! Check out Amanda & Marty’s feature here!
We started the day with some getting ready pictures at The Bellevue.
The moment the veil goes on is one of my favorites!Amanda wore her mother’s veil, so beautiful!Amanda and Marty decided to do a first look, so we headed over to XIX Restaurant on the 19th floor of The Bellevue. I can’t get over Marty’s first reaction to seeing his beautiful bride!Next we headed down to the grand staircase in the hotel.
The classic City Hall shot!Marty and Amanda had their ceremony and reception in the beautiful Rose Garden Ballroom. Married!! I absolutely love when couples display photos of their loved ones from the past. Amanda and Mary found so many beautiful wedding photos of their family members. This is one of the reasons I absolutely love being a wedding photographer. It preserves these memories that are held so dear to so many.
Every table was a classic Philadelphia landmark.The favors were traditional English crackers! This toast was a memorable one! Marty’s son and brother exchanged speeches to read and the place was nearly in tears laughing!
Amanda and Marty, I truly had the best time photographing your engagement session and wedding day. I wish the both of you all the best!
