Real Wedding {Alison + Kirk}

Wedding pictures of Alison + Kirk…

I’m super excited about today’s real wedding, which was photographed by Carina and Amanda or Love Me Do Photography. This wedding is truly unique and wonderful, all mixed into one. I specifically love the choice of venue, the German Society of Philadelphia. The venue has so much character from an amazing library and hardwood floors to gorgeous statues and oil paintings. What an amazing location for a wedding!

The amazing flowers are from Nature’s Gallery Florist, who have loads of organic, locally sourced and seasonal flowers. The brides bouquet is just breathtaking.

Alison wore a stunning vintage inspired wedding gown, which was made by her designer friend Anna McCraney {what a lucky bride}. The dress was inspired by a vintage Ossie Clark dress that Alison saw a celebrity wear to a premiere. The bride commented I really just wanted something with a vintage feel.”

The couple were lucky enough to have an awesome DJ friend, Brian Curtis, that stepped into the role of wedding DJ. Alison commented He was the only person I could have ever wanted to DJ our wedding, because his taste is so good and he is very effective at starting a party. I flew him out from California just to do it (thankfully, he only wanted the plane ticket as payment!).”

I’m enamored with this super cool mural philadelphia engagement photo shoot, which was photographed by the talented Amanda of Love Me Do Photography {located in Philadelphia}.

These sublime murals are part of a series of murals called Love Letters, located in West Philadelphia and this work is seriously a must see. The couple, Ben and Katherine, could not have picked a better backdrop for their engagement photos. This engagement photography is just too cool!
