Britt and Cody got married on New Year’s Eve at the gorgeous Vue on 50 at Three Logan Square, Philadelphia, PA. They started the day getting at their stylish apartment complex. We arrived early in the morning to photograph the details and some candid getting ready shots.
Incidentally, at around the same time, the couple both decided to rewrite their vows, so we have matching photos of these moments from two different locations.
After rewriting vows, it was time for the father’s first look. This has been trending over the past year, and it’s a really intimate moment between father and daughter–the first time dad sees his daughter on her wedding day. After a few touches from mom and her bridesmaids, we brought dad in:
After the father first look, it was time for the official first look, held atop their apartment complex with gorgeous City Hall views.
After the first look, we hopped on the Philly Trolley works for a crazy city wide tour that included stops at City Hall, the Art Museum, Independence Hall, Race Street Pier, and LOVE Park.
The ceremony was held at Vue on 50, a gorgeous venue with floor panoramic views of the city. You could not ask for better views of the city skyline.
As the dance floor heated up, Philly Keys provided dueling piano entertainment to dance the night away. At the stroke of midnight, the staff shot confetti off the balcony and the couple shared their first kiss of the new year. The dancing continued until 1:00 am where Cody and his brother sang a final song as a duet to a packed dance floor. Best New Years ever.
