Kate + Nate

Well... I don't even know where to start explaining how awesome this wedding was.  I shot Kate 'n Nate's engagement session in Ocean City a while back (check it here) and knew from that point that their wedding was going to be a blast. I mean, anyone who includes hot dogs and cheesesteaks on the menu for cocktail hour and dinner knows how to have a good time :) Not to mention, scheduling it a day before hurricane Irene hit the city... bold move! Kate and Nate had tons of DIY details, even these cool place card holders made from wine corks (which leaves me to think they did some serious "preparing" to get all those corks :) ) We started our day at the Sheraton Society Hill in Philly and got some incredible getting ready shots of Kate and Nate, as you'll see below. They met at a cool little corporate park across the road, and I swear Nate was skipping like 6 steps at a time running up to see Kate for the first time. These guys were radiating with so much love the entire day! After the ceremony at the oldest catholic church in Philly, we headed to their reception venue, The Trust. What a cool place! They actually filmed MTV's Real World here for a season.  As you can imagine, the party was nuts and there was so much energy flying around.  Anyway, enough of the typing, have a look at the photos already! Enjoy Fiji guys (hope you get there eventually)!!!!

one advantage to having your reception at an old bank... the vaults are hard to move when rennovating :)
