Haley and Ruven’s Philadelphia Wedding At The Four Seasons

Posted on April 25th, 2012 in Weddings by Gabe Fredericks

An elegant Four Seasons Hotel Wedding in Philadelphia….there is truly nothing like it, especially when the family pulls out all the stops.

The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Beautiful people, beautiful setting, and beautiful light…doesn’t get much better then that. The novelty of the wedding planning and the excitement all coming together to create the perfect day, still excites us at Philip Gabriel Photography.

We were delighted when Haley and Ruven asked us to be a part of their team. Documenting every moment of their day was a pleasure along with Allure Films. One of our most memorable moments was shortly after we arrived at the ‘getting ready’ part, Haley had just put her dress on, she held her mother’s hands in amazement…had this day had finally arrived?  The event and décor designed by Evantine was truly breathtaking and played perfectly off of Haley and Ruven’s personalities.

The Courtyard of the Four Seasons was lush with color, just in time for Ruven to lay eyes on Haley for the first time on their wedding day. When a woman’s beauty moves a man to tears, I am reminded of why I love what I do! Another incredible part of fall days is that the sun sets earlier and warmer.

I rarely talk about the food at an event, but after witnessing the menu methodically arranged by Jackie – Catering Manager at the Four Seasons – I felt I must. The dishes were delicate, delicious, and playful.  You name it, they had it! From sliders to mini Oreos the food and the party didn’t stop, while the guests rocked to the sounds of the Melanie Rice Entertainment.

Thanks Haley & Ruven, it was a great honor to be your Photographer, and share in your special day!
