Elena and David’s Unique Elkins Park Wedding

Posted on April 8th, 2011 in Weddings by Gabe Fredericks

The Elkins Estate, located in Elkins Park, PA, just outside of Philadelphia is a one of a kind space that offers a very unique setting for a wedding to take place. For a couple like Elena & David, who had a very romantic way about them, the elegant estate was perfect.

Elena & David had a beautiful ceremony sharing traditional elements from each of their backgrounds. Elena is Greek, and David, Jewish and the Rabbi did a wonderful job incorporating elements from both religions. It was moving to witness the two come together as one and see the love their families share for them. Their day was filled with their closest family and friends. Documenting this day was one of the most emotional experiences I have ever been part of. It was an honor to be with Elena & David, capturing these moments that only happen once, and being able to preserve these memories for them to enjoy for many years to come.

Ever since I had my daughter and soon to welcome son into our lives, I have become much more in tune with documenting moments that happen in my life and others lives so that our children have memories forever. Giving our children the gift of remembering who we were, is the best gift in the world.

Speaking of capturing moments and preserving life… It was nice to document Elena & David’s wedding alongside my good friend, Nick of Video One Productions. It’s always a great day working with you guys. I can’t wait to see the film you put together.

Elena and David selected an awesome team to help create and ensure their day was perfect. Feastivities Catering was fabulous as usual… Dawn & Meredith really did an unbelievable job with making sure everything was happening when it needed to happen, and keeping everyone where they needed to be. Well done team FEAST!

Last but not least… This party wouldn’t have been a fun night without some kickin’ tunes! High five to Brian from Cutting Edge Entertainment for getting the dance floor packed and keeping everyone partying. Great to work with you Brian, looking forward to doing it again!

Elena & David… Thank you! It was an amazing day and a day I couldn’t imagine missing. I wish you both all the best in your years to come.
