We had a thrill working at the Lucy, Cescaphe’s brand new venue, for Rachel and Michael’s wedding day! When I first met with this incredible couple, I knew right away that great things were in store for their Big Day. Being a designer herself, Rachel told me how much she appreciated a good lighting in wedding photographs. That was clear from the very beginning that these two will be a treat to work with. And we have been looking forward to their Big Day since then filled with excitement.
Needless to say, were couldn’t wait for the chance to photograph a wedding at The Lucy for the first time, which made this day even more special for us. Located in the heart of Center City on Philadelphia’s Avenue of the Arts, this venue is simply stunning. With its sleek and modern design, The Lucy is a representation of timeless elegance with touches of European sophisticated detailing.
Wedding Preparations at Cambria Hotel
The bride was getting ready at Cambria Hotel accompanied by her family and bridesmaids. An interesting fact is that Cambria Hotel connects directly to the Lucy, which makes a very convenient and quick access to The Lucy at any time during a wedding day.
The Lucy Wedding Ceremony
The wedding ceremony took place at The Lucy. A candle lit aisle and a delicate floral decor provided for a very romantic and intimate setting. It was incredible to document all the emotions of happiness and joy that Rachel and Mike shared during their ceremony, all witnessed by their loving families and close friends. Once the ceremony was over, we headed to the City Hall for the couples portraits.
The Lucy Wedding Reception
Same as the wedding ceremony, the reception ballroom at the Lucy was beautiful decorated with candles and gorgeous centerpieces by the incredible Beautiful Blooms Events. The entertainment for the night was provided by one of Philly’s best wedding bands – Jellyroll!
Rachel and Mike, we are forever thankful to you for entrusting us with your wedding memories and for letting us be a part of your day. We will never forget how full of joy and love it was!
