R & R’s LGBT Wedding in Philadelphia

Rolf and Ricardo’s LGBT Wedding in Philadelphia at the Stotesbury Mansion was one for the books. I loved this wedding and I am so excited to share!

Everything was well thought out, from their brand new accessories to their old accessories, their full evening waistcoats, their beautiful invitations and stunning Tiffany wedding bands!

Before we arrived at the church, we headed to their venue for bridal portraits and even stopped in Rittenhouse Square for a few photos of the two of them.

Their ceremony was at the dramatic St. Marks Church in Philadelphia and was a full high mass complete with a gospel choir. After their hour long mass, we continued the photo session within the church capturing family, more bridal party photos and a few more of our newly married couple. Upon leaving the church, we were able to capture them exiting and then a huge group shot of all their guests!

I absolutely loved the decor at their reception. Their flowers were swoon-worthy and their cake was beautiful. They even included Chilean chocolates for each guest at their seats as a sweet favor.

The reception was a sophisticated event! From the string quartet playing a piece that Rolf wrote himself, to a couple performing the tango just for our couple and many sweet speeches and delicious food!

But before the night came to a close, I was able to sneak the couple outside for a few sparkler shots, what a way to close this amazing wedding!
