Metropolitan Club Wedding Preparations of Laetitia + Trudi

When Trudi first spoke to me about her and Trudi’s wedding plans she said that she saw them as the perfect combination of Science and art. Trudi, a physician and Laetitia works in the art scene in New York. When they came from was also very diverse. Trudi was born and raised in Texas and Laetitia from Paris. I guess they are one of those perfect examples of how contrary forces are actually complementary. They knew they found the partner they were to marry. The couple prepared for their wedding ceremony at The Church of the Ascension in adjoining suites at the Metropolitan Club. They made sure there was no more “peeking” once they donned their wedding attire! Wedding Preparations: Metropolitan Club

Philadelphia Wedding Portraits of Katie + Todd

Katie was a bride who knew how to make a grand entrance. For her first look she chose the steps of the Rodin Museum! One of my favorite locations in Philadelphia it made for a “perfect” first look. After doing all the family portraits at the museum we moved on to the historic Merchant’s Exchange. A first for me and I LOVED it. I’m sure I will be back with other couples. Right across the street was the First Bank where we finished up our portraits before departing for the Downtown Club to get these two married!Wedding Preparations: Hotel Monaco
