This black and white photo of us is one of my favorites from our September 2006 wedding. The wedding was in a contemporary art gallery at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. While I’m not typically a fan of posed photos, this one really captured the mood of the evening…modern mixed with vintage, elegant yet whimsical and fun.

Kelly McWilliams from Weddings by Socialites:
This is Krista & Chris (Nov 18, 2006). Krista was one of my favorite clients ever- we had such a great time planning her wedding. Anyway, this photos is of the reveal. They chose to see each other before the ceremony to take photos. The moment was UNBELIEVABLE and the pictures proved it. Both Krista and Chris ended up in tears.

Mrs. Bee of the exceptional wedding blog, Weddingbee:
My wedding day got off to a really bad start when my hair and makeup turned out terribly – and I’m not exaggerating! Luckily my maid of honor saved the day by fixing both my makeup and my hair, but that made me very late to take pictures around the city with Mr. Bee. My being late ended up not mattering, because our limo driver was even later than I was!Despite everything that went wrong before the wedding even started, none of it really phased me. This picture was taken as I was getting into the car to head to the ceremony, and you can see that I was just so happy to be getting married to Mr. Bee.And what’s that reflection you see in the car door? Why it’s the Brooklyn Bridge of course!

I love this shot of the two of us. It was taken during our wedding ceremony while we were listing to my sisters read a poem they had written for us. The poem made me tear up and I was leaning in to Dell’s shoulder a bit to hide my eyes. The crowd kind of “awwwwww’d” and it made me giggle thru my sniffles. I remember very clearly what I was thinking at that exact moment, and how I felt so loved.

Recently I asked bloggers and vendors alike to submit one photo that was a favorite from either their own wedding or a wedding they had worked on. Its so rare to see just one image that can define the whole event, or even just capture a moment that was filled with meaning and memories. I’ve been so happy they’ve shared these gems with me, and now I get to pass them along to you! Enjoy!
First off is Lisa of Good on Paper Design…..
The photo was taken by my photographer, Lisa Lefkowitz. The reason why it’s one of my favorites is because it was a spontaneous shot taken of Nick and I smiling/laughing during our dance. I love that my friends are in the background, and especially love that my mom and my grandmother are laughing in the background too.
