Kimmel Center Wedding: Brooke + John

I have a feeling that the Dorrance H. Hamilton Garden at the Kimmel Center is going to be THE place for wedding receptions in Philadelphia. Brooke and John’s wedding was stunning. The atrium rooftop garden fills with light as the sun goes down and it just glows. At night, you have views of the cityscape out the window with City Hall  just down the street. The views, the airy space, and oh yes, Jose Garces Catering. All this perfection, and I think Brooke’s favorite moment was seeing a bulldog in Rittenhouse Square jump into the fountain for a a swim : ) See Brooke & John’s cake topper and you’ll understand why. Beka Rendell from Styled Creative, along with Amy, were awesome to work with and made the day smooth and easy. Congratulations Brooke and John!

Try photographing a bride and her bridesmaids in Rittenhouse Square while 50 people in bright orange are in the midst of a treasure hunt and half of the clues seemed to involve a bride! Ha! Brooke was so cool, she rolled with it. This guy was our favorite though, a lovely serenade.
