Meet Maria & Mike! We started off the day at Maria’s family home where she and her girls got their hair and makeup done. I love when brides choose to do this because it adds such an intimate element to their story! As she slipped into her beautiful dress, that she embellished herself with flowers and feathers, this adorable rush of excitement surrounded Maria…She was going to marry her man today! This was happening. Their Ceremony was was held at Saint Albert The Great Parish in Huntingdon Valley which has this beautiful glass wall behind the alter. After the Ceremony we headed over to the Reception at Bell Voir Manor which is the lovely sister venue next door to Pen Ryn Mansion. If the mashed potato bar wasn’t enough to make me fall in love with this wedding, Maria’s family surprised Mike with a Mummers Band. If you’re not from Philly then you’re most likely saying what is a Mummer?! Every year on New Year’s Day, Philly has The Mummers Parade where Philly blocks and entire families compete for best costumes, bands & floats. The entire reception went nuts and everyone was on the dance floor doing their best Mummer’s Strut.
Check out some of my favorites from the day!
