Ritz-Carlton Wedding Preparations of Heather +DanPhiladelphia Wedding Photographer

I was excited to be back for a wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia.  It’s been several years and it’s had a little “face lift” bringing it back to it classic elegance. I knew Heather and Dan’s wedding was going to be truly wonderful as so many of Philadelphia top vendors. Wedding Planner Gina Sole tied this lovely day together without a hitch. You can see below all the talent involved. Some details I loved were Heather’s Reem Acra gown hanging between her christening and first communion dresses. You know that was a mothers touch. I have so much more to share in upcoming posts! Stay tunes.
