Situated in Philadelphia, the College of Physicians is a fascinating space. The Mutter Museum is a museum of medical history, featuring a lot of anatomical anomalies.
Want to see Dr. Joseph Hyrtl’s collection of human skulls? Take a wander around the Mutter Museum during the cocktail hour portion of a College of Physicians wedding. Want to see a tumor from President Grover Cleveland’s jaw? Einstein’s brain? Part of John Wilkes Booth’s vertebra? All in the Mutter Museum.
Being able to walk through the Mutter Museum is a really fascinating part of a College of Physicians wedding, but it’s not all doom, gloom, and anatomy! The marble rotunda that leads up to the ballroom is stunning, and the ballroom itself is truly gorgeous.
This image was taken when the bride was waiting for the ceremony to begin. Her mother was placing the veil over her daughters’ face, and I just loved the light. The light perfectly illuminates both mother and daughter, and the black and white sets the tone for the image. I loved photographing in this unique space, and hope to go back many times for many, many more weddings!
