Mindy + Ben 05-02-09 (Part 3)

After their ceremony at Broad Street Ministries, Mindy and Ben stepped out onto the center median for a classic Broad Street Philadelphia shot. I adore the timeless classic portrait of Mindy! We were then off to a very creative, urban venue in Philly named Crane Arts. It was a former plumbing warehouse that now houses artists’ workshops and a large space for events that used to be a giant refrigerator! The room is called the “Ice Box”…how cool! Following the theme of origami cranes, Donna of Beautiful Blooms really out did themselves of the décor. Hundreds of Cranes hung from the ceiling awash with beautiful yellow and tangerine hues. I wonder who did all that folding! Check out the amazing place cards with letterpress origami cranes by Two Paper Dolls. Mindy and Ben danced the night away as all their dance lessons really paid off!
