Congratulations to you both!! 🙂

 Date- November 26th 2011
Wedding- Swarthmore Presbyterian Church.
Reception-Wallingford Comunity Arts Center

Mark and Karen are hard core runners. Where else to show off bands but in running shoes?

I loved this moment of Karen with her sister. Precious.

This melted my heart.

Karen’s Dad all ready to go.

Beyond Gorgeous.

The guys. Loved their matching cuff links.

The groom looking extremely dapper.

While I was taking photos of the girls, I turned around to find Karen’s neice taking some photos of her own!! Click Click!! This is one of my favorite photos!!

 I was in love with Karen’s purple wedding shoes. They were so pretty!!

So cute.

This has to be a bridal party favorite of mine. Bride’s idea!!

Party Time!!  The Arts center was amazing.

Dances, toasts. speeches. All so beautiful, and touching. There was some crying behind the camera for sure.

Thank you Karen and Mark for letting me have a share in your most special of days. You guys are the best.

11.11.11.

They will never ever forget their wedding day. I will never forget their wedding day. Most people will never forget their wedding day. And the cool thing is that this wedding date is so unique. I love how these dates pop up only in the first 12 years of each century. Won’t see it again until November 11, 2111.  Truth be told, it really was a wedding of a century. Laura and Dan’s story is a sweet one, that started as a friendship, and blossomed in to a beautiful love, that culminated in to one super amazing wedding.  I know that sentence was a run on. True love deserves a run on.

The wedding started out at the Sheraton Suites at the airport for girls.
At Laura and Dan’s home in Lansdowne for the boys.
I was assisted by the ever amazing Ralph Nardell for this entire wedding. I met up with the girls getting ready, Ralph was there for the guys.

I really enjoy the getting ready shots, it might be my favorite part of the day. Dan’s daughter Marisa was just the sweetest girl, and her and Laura share a very special bond.

Laura had a very big Bridal party, complete with all of  her little nieces. They were all so cute, and I had a hard time not taking tons of pictures of them. So I took tons of pictures of them.

Laura’s dress was Alfred Angelo and it was just gorgeous. Perfect in every way.

One more shot of those amazing shoes!!!! Kate Spade of course.

After all that getting ready it was time to head to the ceremony and reception . In style of course. Philadelphia Trolley works is awesome!
I love their vintage trolleys. The guys and girls each rode the trolley to the ceremony.

One of my favorites of the day.

The ceremony and reception was held at The Ballroom at the Ben in Center City, Philadelphia. Just an absolutely gorgeous location. They do everything on a complete grand scale. They were even in the middle of filming a Big Hollywood movie while we were there.

But the stars here were Laura and Dan.

A few weeks back in the beginning of November I had the pleasure and honor of photographing Shannon and Chris’s wedding. I have known Shannon a long time so this was such an honor for me to do this!! It’s been so nice getting to know Chris this past year, the pair are absolutely perfect together. Their wedding was just lovely- The getting ready shots were taken at the Raddisson Warwick Hotel in Center City- We did portraits with the bride and her parents as well as the bridesmaids in Rittenhouse Square Park. From there we headed to The German Society ((Germansociety.org) for the ceremony and reception following- portraits happened at the German Society except the ones we took in front of City Hall on Broad Street. We jumped in a cab for few quick shots there!! It was such a fun day. Shannon and Chris are so very loved by their family and friends.

Shannon and Chris thank you for letting me share in this day with you! Here is your big preview!
