Jessica and Joe had an amazing wedding at the DownTown Club in Philadelphia. They both started their day getting prepared at the Hotel Monaco. The hotel is located within the nation’s most historic square mile. Across from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, it sits at the intersection of Old City and Washington Square West.

From Bride and Groom prep, the couple shared their First Look outside the Second Bank of the US. Built in the early 1920’s, The Second Bank features Greek Revival architecture based off of the Parthenon. The Second Bank is now home to The Portrait Gallery, where over 150 portraits are on exhibit. We took advantage of the stunning marble columns and surrounding area for Jessica and Joe’s First Look and portraits together and with their wedding party.

Jessica and Joe had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Down Town Club. This venue was designed in 1921, and excludes the luxury of the Industrial Revolution. With sleek and sophisticated furnishings throughout, we had many opportunities to capture Jessica and Joe enjoying their day together.

We had a fantastic day with Jessica and Joe and were honored to photograph their wedding. Their friends and family were ready to dance the night away. What an awesome group of people! Congratulations to the both of you!
