Today we got to see the wedding of Jeffrey and Ann at the beautifully newly renovated Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown: 21 N Juniper St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 Phone: (215) 496-3200. Everything was perfectly arranged by Nicole Trotter, of Marriott Catering, a Marriott veteran with over 10 years experience, with entertainment provided by Leonard Bennett, Pro Music Technician, Sound Engineer. The only thing we worried about was the somewhat drizzly weather, but the couple was so amicable and flexible that we were able to shift photo opportunity times and capture all the moments of the day while making sure not to get the couple soaked!
Here's some beginning shots standing outside the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown: 21 N Juniper St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 Phone: (215) 496-3200.
Inside a spacious, well appointed bridal suite inside the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown 1201 Market Street Philadelphia Pennsylvania 19107 USA, we had a blast photographing the details of the wedding. It really helped how spacious the room was as we were able to get all the shots we needed without being in the way of the bridal party, make up artists, bride's mom etc. This was a lifesaver and made our jobs so much easier. Would highly recommend this particular bridal suite.
In the ceremony area, the newly renovated ballrooms certainly stood out. From steel contemporary beveled tables to the fresh wall papers and furniture, it was easy to make the day look good on camera.
The ceremony went off without at hitch and could have not gone more smoothly.
After the ceremony we got a chance to walk around the city hall area, which is any photographer's wet dream. There is so much to work with in the immediate area!
After the wedding, before cocktail hour started, we were able to get back into the ceremony area which had these huge floor to ceiling windows to do some cool bridal silhouettes.
The reception was wonderful and flowed right along under careful guidance of Nicole Trotter, Courtyard Marriott Catering. Leonard Bennett, DJ, got the crowd on their feet.
After it got dark, Jeffrey and Ann were kind enough to allow some time to take pictures at night time around city hall. I'm so glad they did.
