When I first met bride Elisabeth back in November of 2010 I had an immediate connection with her.  I love when I can be friends with my clients, after their wedding.  There was one thing that Elisabeth & I shared which was super cool: our love for Jeopardy.  But she took her love one step further than shouting answers at the TV.  She was on Teacher Week in 2011!!!!  The episodes aired just weeks before her May wedding.  She even got to the second round!  Way to represent Philadelphia schools Mrs Yucis (she was still Miss Raab then).  Special thanks to Elisabeth for referring us to our newest client Ivy!

Elisabeth had all of her big decisions made for the wedding by the time we met, I just helped her with a few things.  This included finding a hotel for her out of town guests (Staybridge Suites), a bridal suite at a local salon (Joseph Anthony), in addition to being her day of coordinator. She had already chosen some really great wedding professionals.  Here's the stats:

Venue: Tyler Arboretum

Caterer: Jeffrey Miller

Florist: Carl Alan

Photographer: Marno Muth for JPG Photography

Band: Total Soul

Below are some of the pictures I chose that truly capture the wonderful evening.

Jason & Elisabeth have such a tight knit group of friends.  It was really fun getting to know them and see their love for each other.

I really love this picture of Elisabeth.  Marno captured the light perfectly.  Elisabeth's dress accented the tattoos on her chest and back.  The dress also had an intricate, 15 point French bustle.  Thanks to a diagram drawn by Mia of Mia's Cleaners, we got it just right.

Elisabeth's parents were super sweet.  They trekked all of the pieces of the chuppah with them from Florida (in their car).  They then taught me how to put it together in their hotel room.  It was quite a sight.

The barn at Tyler is obviously a great backdrop for pictures.

A friend of the couple made the cake.  It hints at the time Elisabeth spent in India.

This couple was truly wonderful to work with.  Their guests had a blast and danced the night away.  Thankfully the hotel shuttle picked up those who had just a little much fun.  If there is such a thing as too much fun!
