Sarah and Peter's Wedding in Bride's Philadelphia

Sarah and Peter's beautiful wedding at Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia! Not only did the editor give us an extra page for the wedding itself, she gave us the last page of the magazine for the "closing" shot.

It's always nice to do evening shots of the couple once the reception has gotten underway! It can be difficult to sneak away, but a bride and groom are always more relaxed once they've said their "i do's" and had a glass of wine!

Becky and Jim's Wedding in Bride's

When the photo editor from Bride's caught a glimpse of Becky and Jim's beautiful wedding cake, he insisted on using the shot for their January issue. Becky's blue and white cake was specifically designed to match the room which housed it, called the Marie Antoinette room at Astor's Beechwood Mansion in Newport. The mansion is exemplary of the Gilded Age, when the wealthy American businessmen were copying the homes of the great monarchs of Europe. Here, the architects were copying the French Rococo style with its soft ivory tones and rich gilding.
