Becky & Greg | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Cescaphe Ballroom

Becky and Greg came home from San Francisco to get married in the familiar confines of friends and family in Old City Philadelphia. The ceremony was held in the grand atrium space of the Cescaphe Ballroom at the Curtis Center, originally the building housed the home of Curtis Publishing which published/publishes The Saturday Evening Post and The Ladies Home Journal among others. Then we took some time to take some portraits around sites like Independence Hall before their traditional Jewish ceremony with the most amazing chuppah I've ever seen. The chuppah along with all the other amazing floral arrangements were designed with characteristic style and grace by Donna at Beautiful Blooms. I've worked with Donna and her crew several times in my short tenure here in Philly and consider it a real treat. I know that regardless of the couple's flower budget, working with Donna is going to produce a gorgeous display.

Becky and Greg wanted to go one step further in getting pictures of themselves and their guest and we set up a Photo booth. Not one of those old-timey machines, although those are cool too, we set up a studio with two soft boxes off to the side of the reception space and used the draping of the space as our backdrop. Mustafah came as my second shooter and we made this his area of concentration for the evening. So all night long guests stepped into the studio and had a blast, as did Becky and Greg. This addition to the traditional coverage of a wedding provides for an unbeatable collection of pictures that's going to look great in their album. I know this because even though their wedding was on May 31, these two have already picked out more than 100 images for their album.

As always, there's more to see in the slideshow (here).
