Bride and Groom share first dance under crystal chandeliers at Atrium Curtis Center

Stella Maris | Jenna + Drew

Jenna and Drew shared a beautiful day together. We joined each of them as they prepared for their wedding day–Jenna in New Jersey and Drew, over the bridge, in Philadelphia, PA. They saw each other for the first time, when Jenna walked down the aisle at Stella Maris in Philadelphia, PA. Stella Maris Church is a Roman Catholic church that was founded in 1954.

After the ceremony, we headed to the place where Jenna and Drew first met– FDR Park in South Philadelphia. Comprised of roughly 348 acres of land, FDR Park was originally created in 1914. We were able to capture great images of Jenna, Drew and their bridal party in different areas of this park, including by Meadow Lake and the overlook.

Jenna and Drew’s wedding reception was held at the Atrium at Curtis Center. The Curtis Center was built in 1910 as the headquarters for the Curtis Publishing Company. The Curtis Center is home to a stunning Tiffany mural made from 100,000 pieces of hand-fixed favrile glass. The elegance doesn’t stop there. The Atrium also features black and white marble floors as well as crystal chandeliers. Not to mention the service and attention to detail that never ceases to amaze us at every Cescaphe venue.
