When it comes to Irene and Jim’s Crystal Tea Room wedding, I feel like I am lacking words to describe what a wonderful, terrific, unforgettable day it was. From the engagement session we shot for Irene and Jim back in 2016 to their Big Day, I have been counting days to when we get to work with this incredible couple again.
Wedding Preparations and Ceremony
Irene was getting ready at her parents’ house and Jim was getting ready at the hotel in Philadelphia. The wedding ceremony was held in Trenton, New Jersey, at Saint George Greek Orthodox Church. The moment Jim saw Irene walking down the aisle was one of my favorite moments throughout the entire day. It was so emotional and so special!
Wedding portraits in the Old City in Philadelphia
Right after the ceremony, we headed to Philadelphia for bridal party photos in the Old City. Our two primary destinations were the Merchants Exchange Building and the First National Bank of the United States. We also made sure to save some time for quick portraits of the bride and groom on the Broad Street in front of Philadelphia City Hall.
Crystal Team Room Wedding Reception
Their wedding was special in so many ways. From morning preparations full of anticipation and excitement, fascinating traditions of a Greek wedding ceremony to endless dancing rounds at Crystal Tea Room, tons of laughs, hugs, kisses and warmest wishes from families and friends, this day was a dream to document. Irene and Jim, we were the luckiest to be your photographers and we are so happy you shared this special day in your lives with us!
