Ritz-Carlton Wedding Reception of Kristen + Ben

I just love the stunning cocktail hour location at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia. The space, the lighting and, of course, the balcony for me to photograph it all. The decor by Eventine Design was stunning as always and Kristen and Ben even had an artist capture the beautiful room in an oil painting. I also loved their “twinkie” cake! Happy life Kristen and Ben!

Rodin Museum Wedding Portraits of Kristen + Ben

After a quick portrait stop at the Second Bank in Old City we moved on to The Rodin Museum. Capturing all the beauty of an Autumn wedding, we were so fortunate to have Dave Williams of Cinemacake Filmmakers on hand. The BEST human leaf blower in Philadelphia! A really cute idea was the blackboards for Kristen’s bridesmaids. They were able to write down where they first met Kristen!

Ritz Carlton Wedding Preperations of Kristen + Ben

My final wedding of 2014 is a very good way to start my 2015 blog posts! It’s been awhile since I’ve photographed a wedding at the Philadelphia Ritz-Carlton and I was definitely looking forward to it. Ben and Kristen prepared in their suites in the Ritz before meeting on the balcony for their “first look”.
