Classic Philadelphia – Michele and Sal’s Ballroom At The Ben Wedding

Posted on March 6th, 2014 in Weddings by Gabe Fredericks

Michele and Sal picked a great spot, Finley Catering’s Ballroom at the Ben, to celebrate their wedding in Philadelphia.

Their beautiful ceremony was held at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Philadelphia. It was a touching moment to wittiness Sal tearing up when he saw Michele for the first time as the church doors opened and she made her way down the aisle.

When Michele and her father reached the alter, it was apparent that everyone watching could feel the love as Michele’s father pulled Sal in for a hug. If I could have heard the words shared my guess is it would have sounded something like, “Welcome to the family, son.” It’s moments like this that keep us excited about documenting special events.

It was a great day to celebrate! After the ceremony, we went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and City Hall where we captured some classic Philadelphia wedding photographs.

Following the portraits in the city, we headed over to the Ballroom at the Ben for their reception. The Finley Catering team always does an incredible job providing delicious food for their guests in an elegant setting. Also documenting and filming the event were our friends from Allure Films.

We’ve worked with the Allure team on many occasions and we really love how they capture the beautiful and important moments of a wedding day. The E.B.E. band, Rio kept the reception jumping from start to finish and did a great job making sure the guests had a fabulous night.

Overall the day was a beautiful success! Michele and Sal looked radiant, and it was an honor to document their unforgettable wedding for them. Thanks Michele and Sal, we loved working with you and photographing your day!
