As Philadelphia wedding photographers, we have worked at multiple wedding reception venues. One of the venues that definitely stands out is The Crystal Tea Room. Located at Wanamaker Building only steps away from Philadelphia City Hall, this venue has it all. From a gorgeous atrium featuring a beautiful fountain and lots of greenery to the main reception room with spectacular crystal chandelier, this place looks regal and timeless.
The venue has a lot of great opportunities for stunning wedding pictures. As wedding photographers, we always suggest our clients to allot additional time in their wedding day schedule specifically for photos in the empty reception ballroom. There are many ideas for amazing portraits inside the venue. You can photograph at the gorgeous Crystal Tea Room Bridal suite, have some photos done in the middle of the dance floor with a beautiful chandelier or by the delicate drapes that frame the entrance. On this photograph we positioned the bride and groom six feet behind the columns that are lined up on both sides of the Crystal Tea Room. We exposed for the bright red uplighting of the columns and lit the couple with the off camera flash.
This is only one of the many examples what is available at this breathtaking Finley wedding venue. Make sure to check out one of the blog post that highlights one of the weddings we docuented there!
