Katie and Mike had a fantastic wedding day at The Cescaphe Ballroom in Philadelphia. With unseasonably warm weather, we were able to take so many fun shots of the wedding party outside. Some of which, we admit, were a little risky as you’ll see! Katie and Mike are a great couple. Mike serves in the U.S. Air Force National Guard and Katie is a drop dead gorgeous and hilarious mother to their beautiful daughter, Giada. Their little girl was so sweet and created so many beautiful memories on their wedding day. Katie and Mike’s families were already so tight knit with each other –it made the day a breeze. Not to mention their hilarious groomsmen and bridesmaids who were down for just about anything! You’ll have to check out the photos to see what we mean.

Katie and Mike both prepared for their day at the Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia. This location never disappoints. With its exquisite design, inspired by world travelers, the Kimpton Hotel Monaco is a favorite of many of our wedding couples.

Katie and Mike had a beautiful ceremony and reception at The Cescaphe Ballroom in Philadelphia. This Cescaphe venue is located in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. In 1923, the building housed the Imperial Movie Theater. A few decades later it was transformed into The Cescaphe Ballroom by caterer, Joe Volpe. The Ballroom has amazing vaulted cathedral ceilings, crystal chandeliers draped in pearls and an impressive floor to ceiling bar. As always, the attention to detail at this Cescaphe venue was remarkable.

We even made a stop at the Second Bank of the U.S. for some fun and memorable portraits with the wedding party before the reception celebration began!
