A very emotional and happy day for Cara and her family as she prepared for her wedding. I truly have an amazing job, and I am grateful that my clients trust me to witness these most important moments.
After the ceremony and before the party, John and Elyse share a quiet moment on the dance floor. Elegance and grace.
It’s true. No other event brings together Moms, Dads, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins, friends and neighbors, loved ones all, like a wedding. It is a milestone for everyone, but no more bigger milestone then for the bride and groom and their parents. Here are some moments to savor as Joe dances with his Mom on the evening of his wedding to Kathleen:
I arrived at the hotel to find Joe and his groomsmen in the bar.
Luckily, they clean up very well.
Meanwhile, as Kathleen prepared for the wedding, her father regaled the room with stories from his wedding day.

And on to the church, St. Mathias. The fellas do their thing, guests begin to arrive…
Joe watches until he must take his place…
Kathleen arrives and…
The bride and groom are finally able to share a smile.

Take a close look at what’s going on here: Joe looks intently at his bride…she has literally just become his bride…as she places a ring on his finger. This is a giant moment for Joe and Kathleen as a whole host of possibilities stretches out before them. As I write this we are already 11 days removed from this moment. In the blink of an eye Joe and Kathleen will mark their first year together along with the changes within that year. And one day perhaps Joe will regale a roomful of his daughter’s friends with stories of his wedding day, this day.
A quick stop at a local park for some photographs
And back to The Hilton for the party.
Jodi and Jon were wed on a spectacular Philadelphia day in March. The ceremony and reception were at The Downtown Club and a splendid time was had by all. Jodi and Jon first saw each other that day at The Hotel Monaco.
