Like all weddings that are taking place this year, Christine & Mike’s wedding had to be re-worked and re-imagined because of the pandemic. Originally scheduled for March with over 100 guests, their Philadelphia Cricket Club wedding at the end of August instead had about 20 guests. But Christine and Mike also in a way lucked out with the change of plans. Because the original wedding day ended up being a cold, rain soaked day where as their re-scheduled wedding at the end of August was pretty much the most perfect day of the summer. Sure, they didn’t have the wedding that they had originally planned and they weren’t able to celebrate with all of their family and friends. But the wedding that they did have was special and unique in its own way. With only a small amount of family and friends a micro wedding can be much more intimate. As the bride and groom, you can actually have time to sit down and talk to people during the cocktail hour and reception. There are more opportunities to have connections with people throughout the day as well. The big blowout reception has its place and we love them for what they are. But a micro wedding like the one that Christine and Mike had a few weeks ago are quickly becoming some of our favorite events to photograph and be a part of. Christine and Mike, thank you for having us and thank you for trusting us to capture your day for you. We hope that you love your wedding photos!
– From Christine & Mike-
We were struggling to find a photographer we liked for our wedding, nothing seemed perfect, but then someone recommended Two17 Photography. Instantly, we loved the pictures and their style of photography, and once we met with Pete, it was a no brainer. He was easy to talk to and reassuring about helping to make our wedding planning process easier. We had a great engagement session in Chestnut Hill, and Pete knew exactly where to go for beautiful fall pictures and he made sure we had fun. A few months later we had to postpone our March wedding due to COVID, and Pete was very understanding and responsive in rescheduling for another date. We also had some changes to our original wedding plan, and Pete was able to work with us to make last minute adjustments. We were able to get married August 30, 2020, with a small group of family and friends, and Pete and his assistant, Caroline, captured our entire wedding day perfectly. They were fun and creative in taking different photos around the property, and our families and wedding party had a great time with them. We absolutely love our wedding pictures, and we are so grateful to Two17 Photography for making that happen and for their support throughout the craziness of wedding planning both before and during a pandemic.
