BEST WEDDING PHOTOS OF 2010 – Carriage House Wedding, Wilmington, DE

With only 60 guests, Michelle and Byron’s wedding maybe a small wedding, but it’s one of the most fun wedding I’ve ever shot. The couple are so relaxed on their wedding day. Both prepared at their beautiful home in Bear, DE with their four cats roaming around as they get dressed. It was so fun seeing this couple trying to hide form each other before their “first glimpse” moment – the first time Byron sees Michelle in her wedding dress. We did all the formals and their bride and groom portraits before the ceremony at Rockwood Park and Museum on a gorgeous Memorial Sunday. Ceremony was a mix of emotions and comedy, especially after Byron picked up Michelle on their first kiss as husband and wife. And last but not least, the party was a blast, and thanks to Don of D&J service, who got the crowd going!

Here’s my favorite from Michelle and Byron’s big day…

Michelle says goodbye to her babies before she left for the ceremony. One of the cats gets a little curious about  that gorgeous wedding dress….LOL

And enjoy more images from my post I made the day after their wedding…

Ceremony and Reception - Carriage House @ Rockwood Park and Museum in Wilmington, DE. This 150 estate is a perfect setting for a very romantic wedding on a warm Memorial day weekend. Here’s something about the place from their website:

“The mansion is a wonderful example of Rural Gothic architecture.  In the museum, you will find the rooms restored to the way they looked in 1895, the Gilded Age of the Victorian Era. The Museum reflects the way the Bringhurst Family, descendants of Shipley, lived in their early years at Rockwood.”

Caterers - The Greenery Caterers. One of the best caterers in Delaware! I love their watermelon designs at the cocktail hour…check out their website for their amazing menu. And not to mention their superb food. Great job guys at Michelle’s wedding!

DJ and Entertainment - Don of D&J DJ service. This guy is so fun. He works really well with other vendors and he gets the party going for the guests. Love his selections of music….Don is truly the life of the party.

Here are some images from yesterday’s wedding…

Michelle and her mom spend a laughing moment while putting on her dress. The wedding dress by the way was the original dress her mom wore on her wedding day.

Michelle and Byron have four lovely cats. And as they couple are getting ready for the wedding yesterday, these adorable cats get curious about all these wedding stuff laying around the house, including Michelle’s flower bouquet. Yummy!

BEST WEDDING PHOTOS OF 2010 – Downtown Club Wedding in Philadelphia, PA

And on that Sunday, I shot Karen and Kevin’s wedding –  my third wedding that weekend…wow, I was not sure why even at the end of that weekend, I was still so fired up shooting. And no, I was not on steroids…LOL. Just doing what I love to do. =)

Here’s my favorite image from Karen’s wedding. It was when Kevin, the groom, broke down into tears, while saying his vows…..

And here’s more images from the post I made right after their wedding…enjoy!

Bride and Groom: Karen and Kevin

Ceremony and Reception: Downtown Club, Philadelphia, PA

Karen and Kevin’s wedding day was a day of miracle in terms of the weather. The forecast for that day the night before was STORM, and that was not looking good on Sunday morning, when it poured down rain minutes before we did our “bride and groom first glimpse” outside the Four Points Hotel in Philadelphia, where Karen was staying. Thanks to the staff of Four Points for letting us use their Penthouse Ballroom overlooking the beautiful city of Philadelphia to do our “bride and groom first glimpse”. And thanks also to those who prayed for good weather that day because as soon as we arrived at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to do our bridal party photos, the rain stopped.

Thanks again to the staff of the Four Points Hotel in Philadelphia City Center for letting us use the Penthouse on top of their hotel to shoot these gorgeous portraits of Karen in her wedding gown.

What a cute couple. Karen and Kevin, will you have a long lasting relationship, and will you have many babies to come…LOL

Karen - And, we can't forget A BIG THANKS to our wonderful photographer for asking the hotel to use their Penthouse. You're the best! The thought never occurred to us about asking and we soooo appreciate you doing that for us.May 26, 2010 - 2:53 pm

BEST WEDDING PHOTOS OF 2010 – A Saigon Maxim Restaurant Wedding in Philadelphia, PA

After Eliza and Ramon’s wedding in New Jersey, we headed back to Philadelphia for Tien and Chris’ multicultural wedding. Their wedding was a mix of Filipino and Vietnamese traditions.

Here’s one of my favorites from their wedding…

…and enjoy the rest of these images posted the day after their wedding.

Bride and Groom: Tien and Chris

Ceremony: St. Alice Catholic Church, Upper Darby, PA

Reception: Saigon Maxim Restaurant in Philadelphia, PA

I remember photographing this couple during a Filipino Christmas party in Delaware about three years ago. I noticed how they are so much in love with each other so I snapped a couple of pictures of them on the dance floor. Little that I know that I will be part of their special day three years later. This wedding was not only a marriage of two loving couple, but a marriage of two cultures – Vietnamese and Filipino.

With Tien’s Vietnamese background, a Vietnamese Tea ceremony was held at their residence in Lansdowne, PA to honor their ancestors .

A Catholic mass followed at St. Alice Catholic Church in Upper Darby, PA

Then the fun with the bridal party began after we left the church and stopped by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, a favorite spot for wedding photographers. And just like the bride and groom, everyone in the bridal party has full of energy! Can you tell?
