Matt and Jenna’s wedding day at Fairmount Waterworks in Philadelphia was a rainy one, but their friends and family filled the day with warmth and sunshine. They have so much love for each other and their city, and it was so wonderful to be a part of this incredible day.
Jenna was the most gorgeous bride! Despite the rain, she was in great spirits the entire time she was getting ready. We spent a slow morning documenting details and candid moments, leading up to the big dress reveal! It was so sweet seeing her sisters light up and their eyes fill with tears when they saw Jenna in her stunning wedding gown! Throughout the entire day, her friends and family supported her with so much love and laughter.
When we arrived at Fairmount Waterworks the rain picked up but I reassured Jenna that we would find the perfect spot for her and Matt to share their first look. Jenna and Matt chose this venue due to its spectacular location which is also very close to their hearts. They got engaged just blocks away in Fairmount Park along the waterway, and they live nearby in Rittenhouse Square. I knew we wanted to highlight the beauty of these neighborhoods as much as possible regardless of the weather. We found a beautiful sheltered spot overlooking the water for their first look, and we even had a break in the rain after the ceremony for portraits! We quickly ushered over to the gardens and the gorgeous city overlook and got some incredible photos of the newlyweds! In the end, the rain made Jenna and Matt’s day extra romantic.
Jenna and Matt are also huge Philly sports fans — especially the Sixers — and chose fun ways to incorporate that into their day! Before their first look, Jenna gifted Matt a custom Sixers jersey with their last name and he was absolutely beaming as he opened it. They even hid a little Philly sports Easter egg on the back of their wedding cake, and had a Sixers ice sculpture at cocktail hour!
Jenna and Matt, thank you so much for trusting me through all of the beautiful twists and turns of your wedding day! It was such a memorable day filled with celebration that I’ll never forget. It was an absolute honor serving you both and capturing all the sweet moments of your day. You two are truly such an amazing couple and I wish you both the best in your marriage together!
