Ali was raised in a military family so it was a perfect match when she met and fell in love with Annapolis grad, John. I loved the gift that the groom presented to his groomsmen, a cigar holder kit. The guys decided to have a smoke before preparing for the day! Ali prepared for her day in the bridal suite of the Ritz-Carlton in Philadelphia. Claudia Seyler was on hand for hair and makeup. I just loved Ali’s antique hair clip. Her gown was by Jim Hjelm and it was so pretty and breezy for a late summer wedding. The couple met on the stairs of the Ritz-Carlton before taking a ride around the city for so pre-wedding portraits. More to come!
