Allie and Andy’s love story began 7 years ago in New Jersey. They had their first date at the Hamilton Inn in Jersey City and thats where Andy Proposed to Allie on the Christmas Eve of 2017. After 1.5 years of planning a beautiful wedding together, they got married at the Manayunk Brewing Company in Philadelphia.

Their wedding day was beyond perfect and Allie looked stunning on her Stella York wedding gown. After days of rain, the sun shined just on time for their big day. We did their first look and bride and groom portraits at the Wissahickon Valley Park near Manayunk brewing company. It was lovely photographing them so smitten with each other.

After the first dance, my favorite part of the night was definitely the adorable father and daughter dance. It was so precious and heart warming to see the bond Allie and her Dad shared.

I love a Historic Venue with a lot of character, charm and story to tell. Historic Strawberry Mansion in Philadelphia was just that and more. This wedding was a coming together of some amazing vendors in the industry who brought the vision and creativity of Heather Benge Events into life. For as much as I am used to shooting pastel toned weddings, the explosion of colors via the gorgeous florals on this particular event made me fall in love with colors all over again.
