Dave & Lisa had an absolutely stunning wedding day at the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia, Pa. Hotel Monaco itself oozes character but with the touches that Lisa added to the day it just enhanced it that much more! Their ceremony was at Historic St. Georges in Old City, Philadelphia. It is a church I have passed more times than I can count. The grounds are stunning and it sits on a beautiful Old City street just under the Ben Franklin Bridge. What I couldn’t believe how well the inside of the church fit Dave & Lisa and their wedding day!
Dave and Lisa took a horse drawn carriage from St. Georges back to Hotel Monaco. My favorite way to incorporate details into a wedding is in a natural way. Lisa gave me one of my favorite detail photo opportunities to date when she went to pet the horse that would be taking them through the city with her left hand. It’s one of my favorite detail photos to date!
The reception party at the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia was epic as expected. Dave & Lisa had an amazing choreographed dance that had everyone on their feet. The cocktail hour on the roof, was as amazing as it sounds. Even though we got rain most of the evening. They embraced it and had fun with it which turned into some amazing photos as we wrapped up the night.
This Hotel Monaco Philadelphia wedding was such an amazing and fun day to document. These photos ended up being the backbone of what was on spectacular wedding album. Philadelphia is my home city. It’s where I grew up and I always love photographing weddings in the city. There are just endless possibilities when you are roaming the city like we did on this wedding day. I hope you enjoy!
