Last weekend, I photographed Darlene and Pedro’s Phoenixville Foundry wedding! Built in 1882, this former iron and steel foundry is an amazing venue for events, I am so excited to share their Phoenixville Foundry wedding!
Darlene and Pedro first met in 2012 on OKCupid. After “meeting” online, they chatted via G-Chat and text message for an entire month before their first date in November of 2012 where they ate sushi and saw Skyfall in the movie theatre. On this first date, Darlene knew Pedro was the one when when they both cracked up laughing at the same part of Skyfall that somehow reminded them of Home Alone.
Darlene and Pedro were engaged on 09/04/2016, the proposal from Darlene: “Pedro and I were in Portugal with our friends Donna and Steve. It was our last full day there and we were going to rent bikes for a ride along a path that Pedro and I went to 2 years before. A few minutes into the ride, there’s a huge bridge with an awesome view. Pedro asked me to take a selfie with him, so of course I did. I looked at it, didn’t like it then walked away. Pedro asked me to come back to take another one, so I went over. Out of nowhere, Pedro goes down on one knee with a ring in his hand. He’s known to be a jokester, so I immediately said, “You’re joking. That isn’t real.” When he wasn’t laughing, I got the hint and of course said yes! Steve was taking photos of the entire thing, and yet I had NO idea!”
We fit so many amazing moments into their Phoenixville Foundry wedding. Upon arrival at the Foundry, we used the space for Darlene to get dressed, watched both her and Pedro exchange sweet gifts and before their first look in front of the World Map Mural (spoiler, Pedro cried!), Darlene had a super sweet first look with her Dad. Once Darlene and Pedro’s first look was complete, we used the Colonial Theatre marquee as a backdrop for their photos. My couple had their name and date on the marquee which was such a great prop to have on their wedding day! We also used their vintage Volkswagen bus in quite a few portraits, which wasn’t surprising since it was featured in their engagement session! After all portraits were complete, these two had a short and sweet ceremony followed by a fun reception with a great live band! Before the night was complete, we were able to get the bride and groom outside for a sparkler exit, which was such an epic way to end an already amazing wedding day!
I hope you two are enjoying your honeymoon in St. Lucia! <3
