Emily & Alan held their fall wedding in Philadelphia at Bartram’s Garden which is a very special place for me. My wife, Dawn and I were married at this very same venue almost six years ago and Emily & Alan’s wedding day was the first time I had been back to Bartram’s Garden since my own wedding.  These two had a very intimate outdoor wedding in the garden where Alan’s brother officiated and friends gave readings and read their own poems.  The flowers….all succulents….were made by friends, the DJ was a friend; hair and makeup were done by friends as well.   The fall setting of Bartram’s Garden was the perfect backdrop for the rustic style wedding that was created by family & friends chipping in giving a very personal and intimate touch to the day.  Joy Moody helped me out in photographing Emily & Alan’s beautiful day and some of the photos below were captured by Joy.

You guys, it has been a pleasure to work with you both.  You were all smiles on the engagement shoot and I haven’t seen a couple who has been happier together and more excited to be married than the two of you.  Enjoy your wedding photos.  Thank you for having me share in your day.
