Dominique and Dylan’s Ballroom At The Ben Philly wedding was one that literally looked like it was straight out of a magazine from beginning to end. It was this past March (still trying to get caught up), so you’ll see some snow on the ground in a couple photos. As we prepare to photograph a wedding in the heat and humidity tomorrow, putting this together reminded me why I have never minded cold-weather weddings. I’ll take a little snow any day of the week over 95 degrees with humidity as thick as Campbells Soup.
Dominique and Dylan both got ready at one of our favorite hotels in the city, the Loews Hotel of Philadelphia. We have taken some of our favorite prep shots at this hotel, and this wedding was no different. There got married at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, where family and friends joined for a beautiful ceremony. With only limited daylight left before heading off to the cocktail hour, we quickly shot over to the Second Bank of the United States for some photos. One of the most impressive pieces of architecture in the city, it’s always a great spot for portraits. Each time we shoot there we try to mix in a few creative shots that are different than any we’ve taken before, giving our clients something unique. Those shots came as we quickly lost our natural sunlight and instead had to create our own. One of those shots are at the very end of this blog, and it’s definitely one of our favorite shots we’ve taken there.
From there the two of them along with their bridal party made their way over to the popular Ballroom At The Ben wedding venue. Another favorite of ours, it’s a venue that is perfect for a big city wedding and we love working with the staff there. It was a great party where the dance floor was rarely empty and it was the perfect ending to an awesome day. We couldn’t be more grateful that Dominique and Dylan hired us to be part of their big day and wish them nothing but happiness together. Looking forward to getting the call to photograph their next life event 🙂
