Hotel Monaco Philadelphia Wedding PhotographerAn excellent wedding planner is worth their weight in gold. At this wedding in Philadelphia the wedding planner was Gina Sole, and she coordinated the entire day flawlessly. From the bride’s preparation at the Hotel Monaco, the church ceremony at Old Saint Mary’s, the portraits in Washington Square Park, and the reception at Cescaphe’s Atrium at the Curtis Center there was not a single glitch in the plans. I love this image of the bride getting ready in her suite at the Hotel Monaco. The birdcage veil was the perfect touch to her delicate dress and I love how her hands are raised to frame her face. The image is lit simply by one open window and the fantastic Hotel Monaco curtains provide visual interest in the background. It was a wonderfully relaxed preparation for a wonderfully relaxed day - all thanks to Gina!. Location: 433 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
