Renee & Matt ‘s Winter Wedding At The Ballroom At The Ben – Philadelphia

Posted on June 15th, 2017 in Weddings by Gabe Fredericks

Chilly weather and shorter days can sometimes scare couples out of planning their wedding during the winter months. Here at Philip Gabriel Photography, we love how the crisp air and quickly fading light makes for some truly gorgeous winter wedding photographs.

Take Renee and Matt for example. They planned their beautiful wedding in the middle of winter at the Ballroom at the Ben in Philadelphia. Since Renee spends her Monday nights cheering on the sidelines for the Philadelphia Eagles and Matt works as a professional soccer player, the athletic couple wasn’t fazed by the chill in the air!

The fading light gave them a gorgeous backlight and the warmth of the sunlight made for fabulous photos. Not that the couple even noticed us…they were too wrapped up with each other and having fun with their friends and family to even realize we were capturing all of these incredible moments for them!

Rene and Matt have a sweet story, one that makes you feel like they were absolutely meant to be:

“Matt and I met out in the city while with mutual friends. He asked to take a picture with me that night, which at the time I thought was odd having just met him, but he claims he instantly knew we were going to be together.”

They were thrilled with their day at the Ben. Surrounded by family and friends, Renee and Matt wouldn’t stop dancing all night. From the heartfelt speeches from their family and friends to the long-awaited dances with their parents, Renee and Matt were simply glowing, and it shines through in the images.

“What we loved most about our wedding day was sharing it with each other and all the people we love. We allowed ourselves to really enjoy every moment the way we wanted to together and are so happy being able to relive all those moments through our photos.”

It was amazing spending this incredible day with Renee and Matt! Aside from the beautiful images we were able to create, we were so happy to be able to capture that happiness in photographs that their children and grandchildren will be able to admire!

“We could not be happier in having chosen Philip Gabriel as our wedding photographer. We truly feel that they captured our day in all the best ways possible. Their work speaks for itself but aside from the stunning photos they take, the way they contributed to the day as a whole was beyond all expectations.”

Thank you, Renee and Matt, for making us a part of your day! We loved being there with your families and friends to experience this incredibly important day of your lives! We hope you will enjoy your images for years to come.
