Celebrating Love at The Lucy by Cescaphe – Philadelphia’s Latest and Greatest Wedding Venue!

Posted on April 16th, 2019 in Weddings by Gabe Fredericks

Last month, Philip Gabriel Photography had the honor of documenting Samantha and Justin’s big day at Philadelphia’s newest wedding venue, The Lucy by Cescaphe!

Samantha and Justin’s wedding day was filled with so much love, and the bond between the two of them was evident from the first moment we met them. Samantha shared her love story with us and it is every bit as wonderful as they are.

“Justin and I met at Penn State 9 years ago – when I was a freshman and he was a sophomore – and there was an instant connection. Our love has traveled the world and endured lots of distance, State College, Prague, Barcelona, Philly, and New York. What makes us so special is that we’re best friends; we’re great people alone, but we’re even better together.”

Their big day began with them getting ready at The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia. They spent the morning enjoying time with family and friends, anticipating their first look which took place at City Hall.

From there, Samantha and Justin took wedding portraits around Old City, loving every minute of being together and getting excited for the rest of the day.

Both the ceremony and reception took place at The Lucy. Everything was absolutely stunning, thanks to their expert planner Robin Lathrop from BYROBIN Event Design and Management Group. Robin was not only the planner, but her company created the beautiful floral arrangements as well as the draping and lighting. Talk about a company that does it all!

From their big entrance to the last dance, Samantha and Justin’s reception was a dream! Their band L.A. Starz from EBE Talent kept everyone dancing into the early morning hours, and Cescaphe were the perfect hosts (as always,) keeping the incredible food and drinks coming!

We are so honored to have been chosen to document such an amazing day for Samantha and Justin, and we cannot wait to see where life – and love – take the two of them in the future!
