Lauren and Mike on Top of the World – Loews Hotel Wedding!

Wow!  Check out Lauren and Mike’s real wedding slideshow from their wonderful Philadelphia wedding.  From Old St Mary’s Church to 2nd Bank in Old City, we captured Philly’s old world charm.  Then onto Loews hotel where Chico’s Vibe band laid down the perfect soundtrack for an elegant evening.  No wedding at the Loews Hotel Philadelphia would be complete with out a trip up to the rooftop to capture an image in front of the PSFS sign that graces the city.

Congratulations Lauren and Mike! We had a blast with you both and we continue to be entertained by Mike’s witty and insightful Facebook posts!

Old St Mary’s to the Loews Hotel Philadelphia

We had such a great time shooting Mike and Lauren’s Wedding–lots of laughter and joyful tears to go around!  And just look at Lauren — absolutely gorgeous!  And you won’t find a nicer, more easy-going couple!  They were an absolute joy to work with.  Mike and Lauren said their vows in a beautiful ceremony at Old St Mary’s Catholic Church in Philadelphia, and after the ceremony, we stopped for a few shots in Old City, and then returned to the Loews Hotel for an unbelievable fun-filled reception with the sounds of Chico’s Vibe.  A special thanks to Caitlin Boshnack, Lauren & Mike’s wedding planner of Just be the Bride who is the consummate professional and so fun to work with making the wedding day run flawlessly.  Be Films provided video for the event and you can see the video highlight here.  Congratulations again Lauren + Mike!  We’re so happy for you!

Kate and Jim’s Spectacular Coveleigh Club Wedding

The Coveleigh Club in Rye NY with its panoramic view of the Long Island Sound was the perfect backdrop for friends and family to join Kate and Jim on their special day.  Kate got ready upstairs in the bridal suite of the Coveleigh Club, while Jim was a few miles away enjoying several raucous games of chance with his 15 groomsmen – see images below.  Kate looked absolutely stunning as she slipped into her Blush Wedding Dress by  Jim Hjelm.  While the girls put on their final touches, the guys games started winding down in preparation to head to the church.  Well that was the plan… rumor has it, said games continued all the way to the church.  With the Church being the big winner!

From the Church on to the Reception

Returning to the Coveleigh Club after a wonderful ceremony at the Church of the Resurrection in Rye, the sun came out and the party was ready to start.  Kate and Jim danced their first dance to Adele’s “Make you Feel my Love” performed by the sultry sounds of Only in America.   The best man’s (Jim’s Brother) speech was especially touching as it told many stories of a young Jim trying to convince his younger brother (best man) that he was not really part of the family.  Jim went as far as to remove all pictures from the family photo album that included his younger brother.  Then said “if you don’t believe me, let’s look at the family photo album.”  Well played Jim!  Well played!

The night held many special moments that I’m sure Kate and Jim will cherish forever.

Best wishes to you and your families now and in the future.  Bob and Lola
