Please Touch Museum Wedding:
Christine + Pat

So many favorite things about this wedding. First, Christine’s 89-year-old grandma “Nana Betty” was a bridesmaid. She was adorable. Second, Nana Betty could keep up with the non-stop shenanigans (read non-stop laughter). Third, this is the second wedding we’ve photographed within a year of someone marrying someone with the same last name. Fourth, we photographed Christine’s sister’s wedding a few years ago so we knew just what we were getting into. Congratulations Christine + Pat!02_Philadelphia_wedding_venue_unique

    What an Amazing Beautiful Wedding that you included your Grandmother, She had a ball, Never did she anticipate that you would ask her 5x are you sure? When she agreed, She looked just as her Beautiful Granddaughter. Thanks for sharing your beautiful Wedding with us, With Nanna Betty, What a Beautiful Memory for her Grandmother. Congratulations Christine & Patrick on your Wedding Day xx

    Beautiful Wedding. I wish my nana had been alive when I got married. She passed away before I grew up.

    I think it was adorable to have Nana in your wedding a memory for you both and as far as I know it has never been done. I bet it was the best time of her life and she will never forget it. This memory will last forever. Congrats to you and your hubby and always best wishes to Nana for dancing the night away. All your pics were beautiful.

    Mooi bruidspaar heel veel geluk voor de toekomst, ik heb erg genoten van jullie foto’s. Ze zijn werkelijk prachtig, vooral de foto met de bruid en de lachende bruidsmeisjes is geweldig. Complimenten aan de fotograaf.

    What a beautiful bride and groom! To have your grandmom as a bridesmaid is something neither you or her will ever forget. I wish all the best as you and your husband start a life together.

    What a beautiful wedding and the fact that her grandmother was in it makes it even more wonderful. Nana Betty totally ROCKED the dress, too! Thanks for sharing!

    The pictures I saw made me very happy. God bless the newly wed couple and I wish the Grandma will soon happily hold her grand-grand child joyfully in her arms.

    What a great idea to have her Grandmother as a Bridesmaid. Love it! I barely know my Grandmothers so I find it so so special. Thankfully they hired a professional photographer to capture their day! Wonderful job! I’m so happy to see you getting picked up on Huffpost and Buzzfeed for something meaningful. A great reminder of why we Photographers are there to begin with!
