Monica and Vu’s wedding at Vie Philadelphia was filled with so many beautiful moments it was hard to share just a few with you! This couple started their big day at the stunning Loews Hotel in Center City, Philadelphia. Did you know that the Loews Hotel is located in the nation’s first skyscraper? Built in the 1930’s, this sophisticated landmark set the tone for Monica and Vu’s amazing day. We were able to capture beautiful moments of Monica and Vu both preparing for their First Look which took place on the 31st floor of the Loews Hotel.

From there, we made our way to historic City Hall for shots of the bridal party. The historic and lavish architecture of City Hall provides an excellent backdrop for powerful wedding portraits. Next, there was no better place to show off the fantastic weather on their big day, but Delancey Street in Philadelphia. We made a quick stop to the iconic Philadelphia street to capture timeless images of the couple outdoors.

For the ceremony and reception, Monica and Vu chose the breathtaking Vie Philadelphia venue in Center City. The ceremony was held in their outdoor courtyard which provided abundant amounts of natural light to best showcase the couple’s most intimate moments. The reception was filled with so many fun moments, including epic dance moves and an impressive cake cutting sword! The event staff at Vie Philadelphia ensured that the night went off without a hitch! Big thanks to Wedding Coordinator, Jessica Kerrigan for creating such an amazing day for Monica and Vu!

We were honored to capture such amazing moments with Monica and Vu. With such a fun and enthusiastic couple, it seemed more like play than work! Congratulations!
