Last weekend, I photographed Marcy and Andrew’s classic Collingswood Grand Ballroom wedding. We had a beautiful winter day and their ivory and burgundy color scheme perfectly complimented the ballroom, we were even lucky to catch a light snow fall at the end of their portrait session, which was such a sweet and lucky surprise!
Marcy and Andrew first met on the first day of marching band at Temple University and their first date was dinner at a German restaurant, Bierstube in Philly. After enjoying dinner they walked to Franklin Fountain for some delicious ice cream!
Engaged on 09/30/2016, the proposal from Marcy: “Andrew and I parked the car on Temple’s campus and took an Uber to Devon’s Seafood in Rittenhouse Square. We had Lobster Bisque to start dinner off, a bottle of wine, and a lot of other delicious foods! After dinner we went to the opera. Once the opera was finished we went back to campus. As we walked around campus Andrew reflected on our relationship and great times we’ve had together. Our last stop on our walk was Founder’s Garden (where the Founder of Temple University is buried). The Garden is a paved circle surrounded by beautiful trees with lights. Andrew got on one knee and proposed!”
Now that these two are married, they are planning a belated honeymoon for this Summer and when they return, their dream is to build a home together, have kids, do a bit of traveling as a family and to have fun and make memories during all of it!
