Philadelphia Marriot Wedding

The Philadelphia Marriott Downtown is a wonderful wedding venue for Philadelphia-area brides and grooms. It's large, comfortable, and has everything you'd want in terms of location. You're incredibly close to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and Reading Terminal. For this stellar winter wedding, we started at the bride's parents house for getting ready images. We then moved to the Parish Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Lindenwold, New Jersey, for the wedding ceremony. After that, we endured the craziest drive I've ever experienced on a wedding day, crawling for hours in the pouring ice and snow to make it to Center City Philadelphia for their reception at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. One of my favorite moments from this day was at the very beginning of the photography coverage, when the bride had finished with hair and makeup, and got into her wedding dress How many brides can you say are brave enough to let the family dog shake their hand while wearing their wedding gown? I adore this image for its' timeless appeal and clean, simple black and white processing. Mostly I adore this image for the wonderful moment captured, and the sweetness of the bride and her beloved pet. 1/160; f/3.5; ISO 4000; 24.0 mm.
