Meredith and Brian

Labor Day Weekend, Maddie and I (yes, ladies and gentlemen, the one and only Madeleine Stevens is back in town) headed to Philly to shoot the wedding of Mer and Brian.  I've known Mer's family for quite some time now, and it was great to not only be a part of the wedding but also to capture tons of special moments (and not to mention the weather was AWESOME).  We started the day at the Downtown Marriott in Center City, followed by a drive out to Lehigh University.  The church there was beautiful, an older style with huge ceilings and stained glass windows.  We took advantage of the beautiful backlighting on the trees outside the church and grabbed some formal family portraits on campus before heading back towards the city to the Philadelphia Cricket Club.  They had an extended cocktail hour which allowed us to make some extra images, and the following reception was gorgeous.  They even had a local band from Manasquan called Enjoy rock their wedding!  Lots of details and hard work went into this wedding, and it definitely showed.  Hope you guys are having an awesome time in Belize!
