From their awesome Washington Square Park Philadelphia Engagement session, the excitement continued on their wedding day! Karen and Andrew celebrated thier big day at the Collingswood Ballroom in Collingswood, NJ.
Mother nature put a scare on us as the forecast mentioned for rain on that Saturday all week long, but as the day went on, the rain stayed away and we were able to get some nice outdoor time for the couple with their bridal party! We should always find the positives in every situation because sometimes, it really does work wonders!
Karen and Andrew got ready at their private residence which really had great lighting for the early part of their wedding day.

Their dog Cookie was ready for the day too.
Our bride's Maggie Sottero wedding dress and she looks amazing in it!

And a dramatic portrait of our bride, absolutely beautiful.
Portrait of our groom
He wore a very special set of cufflinks as they were passed on from his grandparents. And finishing off his stylish look with his bowtie.
Our couple did a first glance.
The sight of each other is such a great moment between them.
And the warm embrace.
After the first look, we went to Knight’s Park for some fun shots.
So glad the weather changed its mind. Nice foliage at Knight's Park for our portraits.
Another bridesmaids set.
The color coordination looks so awesome on the bridal party!

And we always love veils!
Afterwards went made our way to the venue which was the Collingswood Grand Ballroom in Collingswood, NJ.
The ceremony and reception were held at the same venue.
Ceremony was underway. The Collingswood Ballroom has some nice 1920's style decor, which really lends is self to a well polished old-world in a modern time setting.
Our couple had their own vows to themselves, their family and friends. Which was really heart warming to witness.
And yes they're married! I'm really humbled to have documented their day for them. What an incredible couple.
Had a minute to see how nice it turned out outdoors before we kicked off the reception.
The decor details were just elegant.
Table settings were very impressive.
What's unique about the Collingswood Ballroom from other venues I have been in is that, the bride and groom are introduced with their first dance by being revealed as the curtains open from the upper cocktail hour area.

I always see those fiery skies and always wonders where they are on a wedding day. Well finally had a shot (pun intended) at it, but it was fading fast. Thank you to our couple for giving me us the two minutes I needed to get this shot.
Father and daughter dance went underway.
And the mother and son dance shortly after.
And the incredible band of Big Ric got everyone partying!
He just had an unlimited amount of dance moves the whole evening. Our groom enjoying their amazing day!
Capping it of with an end of the night photo of a wonderful evening!
To all the vendors that made this day a success for our couple Karen and Andrew, thank you for all your hard work! And a very special thank you to my team that worked hard that day, Inna and Kaylyn!
Congratulations to the wonderful bride and groom and their successful day! Cheers!!!
