Trisha and Maxim were such a pleasure to work with — from their Rittenhouse engagement session, Center City Rehearsal Dinner and then their sophisticated wedding at The Crystal Tea Room Philadelphia — we loved every moment of working with these two! We started with getting ready photographs and a first reveal at the Loews Hotel. That view from the 30th Floor of the Loews overlooking the city is the perfect place for an intimate and secluded first look between bride and groom. Before heading over to the Crystal Team Room Philadelphia, we popped over to Rittenhouse Square for a portrait session with Trisha and Maxim and their bridal party. Little did we know that it was also the famous Arts Festival, so needless to say the park was even busier than usual. However, Trisha and Maxim were calm as ever and took it all in stride. We were able to get plenty of photographs there, before heading over to the venue for the ceremony.
When we first arrived at the Crystal Team Room, we were awestruck at the sight of the gorgeous ceremony setup by the talented team at Elegant Affairs. The wedding Mandap was adorned with cascading flowers, pops of color and candle lighting. Since this was a blending of Western and Eastern cultures, after their ceremony Trisha, Maxim and their bridal party did a quick outfit change. Afterwards we snuck them all out for a second portrait session under City Hall and Broad Street for those iconic Philadelphia wedding photographs. We were so thankful that this crew was so easy-going and down for a quick portrait session!! Trisha and Maxim were able to make it back in to enjoy some of their cocktails before getting the party started. The reception decor was just as stunning and the The Crystal Tea Room was truly shining after the Elegant Affairs team was done with it. We’re so excited to be sharing some of our favorites from their big day!
