Honoring A Perfect Match – Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

When it comes to special occasions, honoring a sacred union is one worth remembering. We all have our ideas about what a wedding could and should look like. It is our day, a moment in time that we aspire to capture and seal in our memory banks for years to come. May 6th of 2017 was one of these specialty captivating days, where the stars all seemed to align in just the right way. Philadelphia wedding photographer Kevin York was here to capture such a day at the James A. Michener Art Museum. Kevin saw firsthand how much it means to be in love when he photographed his special couple in Doylestown.

Theia (Marion) from Ivy Kaplan provided the bride’s gorgeous wedding gown. Tribeca-CTO provided the incredible music for the event. Cindy Singer of Dylan Michaels Cosmetics handled the beautiful make-up for the bride. Jill Kozar from Up Your Do handled the brides’ gorgeous hair and Terri Fair from Catering by Design also stepped in to provide a wide range of tantalizing foods. To top it all off, Bredenbeck’s Bakery provided the beautiful wedding cake. Kevin’s imagery illustrated a day that was intricately planned for months. His photography highlighted a special relationship and commitment.

Although the day had a rainy beginning, clouds soon parted to make way for sun while family and friends enjoyed delicious bites, drinks and dancing to commemorate this momentous occasion. The love present throughout the day was palpable and is sure to be remembered for years to come. The honored couple expressed their thanks for the amazing vendors who implemented their vision and exceeded their expectations.

Shoshana & Adam at the Crystal Tea Room

I met Shoshana Katz many years ago when she was a dancer working with Cutting Edge DJ’s. I was asked to photograph the dancers for a blog Cutting Edge was doing at the time. Shoshana was one of those people who just light up a room with her energy and her smile. I still remember that day and “That Girl”.

Fast forward a few years later and Shoshana and I are doing a stylized bridal photoshoot for the Seaport Museum. She was the bride in the photoshoot. I remember her saying to me after we looked at many images”If I ever get married Kevin you will be shooting my wedding some day”. I think that was like 8 years ago? Guess what? she kept her word and I’m so happy she did!

Shoshana and Adam (who I also met at Cutting Edge,a really great guy) had an awesome day in October for their wedding. They started out at the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia. We set up a nice moment at the Ritz for a “first glance”. Then it was off to Rittenhouse Square for some fun shots with bridal party and bride & groom.

The ceremony and reception took place at the Crystal Tea Room. The folks at Finley Catering were wonderful and did a great job. Cutting Edge DJ’s provided non stop entertainment all night long but Shoshana & Adam, their families and friends made the show.

This wedding is very special to me for lots of reasons but when I think about how young Shoshana was when she said I would be her photographer for her wedding it kinda blows me away looking at these photos today.

Shoshana & Adam I wish you and your families all the best!

Vendors from this wedding:

Bryn Athyn Cathedral – Cairnwood Wedding Photographer

I always love coming to Cairnwood Estate and it’s always a special treat to have a ceremony in the Bryn Athyn Cathedral. So many opportunities for great photography with this venue!

Where do I start with the Cathedral?  It’s spectacular both inside and out. The great thing about this place is that even if the weather isn’t perfect, you can get great images there. The first time I worked there it rained, but we had so many spots outdoors, under cover, that the weather made no difference. The interior is a classic big church. Super high vaulted ceilings, beautiful natural and artificial light, big granite columns and a long runway to the alter.

Courtney & David’s wedding this August was a Bryn Athyn Cathedral ceremony with the reception at the Cairnwood Mansion. I think it’s so cool to be able to have your ceremony at such a beautiful venue and then a short walk to another awesome venue for your reception.

We all had a blast that day! Courtney & David were a wonderful couple to work with and their families were so nice. I have included a few of my favorites from the day.

Congratulations Courtney & David wish you all the best!

Morris Arboretum Wedding – Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

It has been a couple of years since I have worked at the Morris Arboretum. But I was very fortunate to return with such a loving, animated couple along with their wonderful families, awesome wedding party and the ring bearer Mochi.

Ariel and Ross are a very affectionate couple and it really shows. Ariel was in love with the arboretums rose garden. She had the wedding there and many of the portrait photos we did were in the rose garden. I have to admit it was really great and the light was absolutely beautiful. Middle of June late afternoon, evening light you can’t go wrong and to add a couple who gave me so much well you can see the results.

The Wedding Design, Planning, & Florals were by Mark Kintzel
