Happy Friday, friends! Let’s kick off our weekend by sharing one of my favorite weddings ever. Joey + Andrew were married at Waterworks in Philly last weekend, and I was so honored they asked me to photograph their wedding. I knew I’d love them because another one of my all time favorite couples (hi Kelly + Quinn!) sent them my way. And I was right! From the moment we met at their engagement session, I knew it was going to be an amazing day.
Joey + Andrew make such a happy, fun, positive pair. That was clear from the moment I met them, but it was also solidified when hearing all of their closest friends & family speak about them. Their entire wedding day was surrounded by so much love, positivity and support. To me, it’s CRAZY to think gay marriage was only legalized 4 years ago. Even though that should have happened much earlier, I’m glad it DID eventually happen…..because everyone deserves to choose who they love and marry.
There were several times I was bawling like a baby behind my camera. One of those times was when a groomsman read the Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage during their ceremony. Those words and that decision changed so many lives for the better. It just made me so dang happy to see these two get married, and live their lives the way they’re meant to. Love always wins!
I was incredibly honored to be asked to document Joey + Andrew’s wedding day, and I couldn’t wait to share some of my favorite images below from their wedding. Also, take a few minutes to view their SLIDESHOW to see even more from their wedding day!
Clean + classic details are my favorite:)
Nothing like getting ready directly across the street from City Hall – it was an amazing view!
Is there a better First Look location??? The answer is no. The balcony of a 46th floor penthouse directly overlooking city hall. It was breathtaking!
I just adore these two:
I still can’t get over how perfect this day was – you could not ask for a more gorgeous spring day in the city!
I have so many favorite images of Andrew + Joey, it’s so hard to narrow them down!
I love this ring dish!
I also loved their vows – they each wrote their own, and their words were so heartfelt and full of love.
The reception site was SO gorgeous at Waterworks!!!
I loved all of the details they put together – it looked amazing!
Joey is an AMAZING singer, and he surprised Andrew with a performance! It was incredible to hear:
Congrats again Joey + Andrew! I hope you’re having so much fun on your mini-moon:)
