Saying “I Do” At the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts

Posted on February 7th, 2019 in Monica Brofman, Weddings by Gabe Fredericks

Philadelphia is such a diverse city and is the ideal backdrop for so many of our couples!

There is a venue for everyone, from stunning traditional ballrooms, to unique museums. For Jacquie and JD, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts was the perfect setting for their beautiful fall wedding.

While wedding day can be especially hectic, each moment was perfectly planned thanks to their amazing event coordinator Chrissy from Truly You Events, which allowed the couple to enjoy every minute!

Jacquie and JD began their special day getting ready at the Logan Hotel, with their family, friends and four children. Jacquie and her girls looked breathtaking thanks to the talented team at Aleksandra Ambrozy Hair and Makeup. We could feel the excitement in the air, and loved being able to document it all!

Jacquie and JD shared a first look in the Logan’s courtyard, before heading over to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts for their beautiful ceremony and reception. The ceremony took place in the Washington Foyer, where the couple exchanged their vows while family and friends looked on.

After the ceremony, Jacquie, JD and their guests made their way to the beautiful Rotunda for cocktail hour, and then on to the Tuttleman Sculpture Gallery for the reception! The room was beautifully decorated by Petals Lane, and guests were well fed thanks to Constellation Culinary (formerly known as Starr Catering.) After dinner, Ben from Remixologists did an amazing job and kept guests dancing all night long!

We are so honored to have been the Philadelphia wedding photographer chosen to document Jacquie and JD’s big day alongside the talented Allure Films, and are so excited for them to be able to relive their wonderful wedding day for years to come!
