Philadelphia Waterfront Wedding Couple's Portrait

Stephanie, aka Miss Romantic Bride from It’s A Bride’s Life, got married to the love of her life on September 6th, 2014! I was honored to be involved in their Independence Seaport Museum wedding. I designed Philadelphia custom wedding invitations for them. Their day-of stationery had a matching purple and Philadelphia skyline theme.

CinemaCake Filmmakers captured the video of their special day. Here’s a link to the trailer, but I’ll warn you: have tissues ready before you watch it!

Stephanie’s dress was the Byrna gown from David Tutera for Mon Cheri. The wedding’s details brought together the deep purple, lavender, and silver palette that Stephanie chose.

Stephanie and Dave had their first look and couple’s portraits on the Philadelphia waterfront. There are lots of great nautical-themed spots for portraits–perfect, since Dave is an avid fisherman.

Werth Photography also took Stephanie and Dave’s awesome bridal party portraits with Philadelphia skyscrapers towering in the background. I’m not sure there’s a couple out there who loves this city more than they do!

Outdoor wedding guests definitely appreciate when their programs take the form of fans! The ones I made for Stephanie and Dave used the Philadelphia skyline, with a watermark that paid homage to the iconic “LOVE” sculpture.

Stephanie and Dave’s seafront wedding ceremony took place in the rotunda at the Independence Seaport Museum. It threatened to rain right up until Stephanie was walking down the aisle, but luckily, it stopped at a few sprinkles!

The tables at their reception were each named after a Philadelphia landmark, and the table numbers offered a little bit of information about each!

The party kicked into high gear at Stephanie and Dave’s Independence Seaport Museum wedding reception. Werth Photography got the chance to sneak the two of them outside for some outstanding low light photography! The sparkling night skyline looks absolutely beautiful in the background of their portraits.
