Independence Seaport Museum Wedding Photos

Oh my goodness, this wedding! Where to begin! Steph and Dave had a pretty amazing day. These two tied the knot at the Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia – it’s museum filled with art, artifacts and archival materials documenting the diverse maritime history of the Philadelphia region. Above the museum (where Matt and I totally history-geeked out) there is a pretty one of a kind wedding venue – there are indoor spaces and outdoor terraces that overlook the Delaware River and the Ben Franklin Bridge. It’s pretty darn fantastic – I think the fact that the groom is an avid fisherman may or may not have influenced the decision to use this venue! I love it. Steph looked like an absolute dream in her gorgeous David Tutera gown – everyone was definitely ooh-ing and aahh-ing! Her purple and silver accents and flowers provided an elegant color palette with a hint of drama. Now for the photos! We began our wedding day with a “first look” in front of the U.S.S. Olympia – a Spanish-American war era battleship. We were then allowed to go aboard the ship (so cool!!) for some creative shots. The weather was sunny and bright – and then suddenly dark and stormy, so we beat a hasty retreat back to the venue. When ceremony time rolled around, the sky was still looking pretty ominous, but our couple decided to go ahead and tie the knot outdoors as originally planned. And you know what? It was incredibly romantic. They quoted Bob Dylan’s “Wedding Song”, which might be the most passionate song ever. A light misty rain fell throughout their vows, ships passed in the background… it was wonderful. Steph, Dave – you guys were so much fun to spend the day with. We really enjoyed working with you guys over the last year, and how you totally let us indulge our creativity and excitability! We wish you all the very best and a heck of a happy marriage!!!   xoxo Laurie
