We are so excited to share Jess + Mark’s wedding pictures. You may also remember these two from their NYC Engagement Session earlier this year. We really love when we work with couples who live and work in NYC or Philly but get married in the other city, because it gives both of us Femina ladies a chance to work with them on their engagement session and then for the wedding!!
Jess + Mark started their day getting ready at the ultra modern and unique Hotel Monaco in Old City. We were the able to walk on down to the 2nd Bank for an intimate and secluded First Look there. Even though Jess + Mark were having a church ceremony, they really wanted this moment between them to be special and private. So we found this hidden little pathway which was absolutely perfect. It’s the type of moment where you just hold your breath as she’s walking slowly toward him because it looks like something right out of a movie! And once they saw each other, every stress from the excitable morning just seemed to melt away. They really are the perfect pair and it completely shows in every photograph of the two of them together. It made our job of choosing just a few for this sneak peek, that much more difficult!
The rest of the day went as smooth as can be, thanks to their wonderful planner Kelly at Details by Kelly, who helped keep things right on schedule. They got married at St. Gabriel’s Church in Grey’s Ferry and then we headed over to Front & Palmer for the reception. It’s always a pleasure working with Lini Skiba and her team at Feast Your Eyes Catering – not only are they easy to work with but they feed us wonderfully delicious meals (as vendors we are very grateful for nice hot meals). Jess + Mark really wanted to get some photographs under the El train at night, so we snuck away towards the end of the reception for a few shots. It’s always an adventure trying to dodge traffic while snapping some quick photos there, but we’re SO glad they took those few minutes to come out with us because they turned out great!
We want to wish Jess + Mark all the best in their new adventure as husband and wife and thank you for letting us be a part of your Wedding journey – congratulations!! Front & Palmer Wedding Photography
A big shoutout to Derek at Lavon Films, him and his team were so great to work with. Thanks for a great day of collaboration!
