Sean’s proposal to Dana came as a complete surprise to her. As they enjoyed a candlelight dinner on the beach while vacationing in Mexico, Sean let her know that he had something special for her. Knowing Sean as a prankster, Dana was ready for a true embarrassment! Sean informed her however that he had hired a photographer for her. Dana loves photos so this was a true treat for her! They took photos on the beach until Sean got down on one knee and took Dana’s hand. Having done this as a joke several times in their past, Dana assumed he was kidding again. But this time, it was the real thing. After getting over her initial shock, Dana said yes! It was one of the happiest days of their lives… and they have the photos to prove it!
This brings us to the next happiest day of their lives… Dana and Sean were married on Valentine’s Day. What more romantic day could there be for a wedding? It even snowed just a little to add to the charm and magic on this winter’s day. Their ceremony, held at St. Ephrem Catholic Church in Bensalem, included sweet, personal vows written by Dana and Sean. One couldn’t help but swell with emotion as they were read.
Dana was such a dazzling bride! She wore a strapless mermaid-silhouette gown covered in lace. Of course, she complemented her look with those amazing strappy Jimmy Choo shoes! Sean chose to walk a slightly unconventional route by wearing a white jacketed tux with black trim on the lapels. He looked so handsome and it’s nice to see a groom break away from the mold with his attire!
Dana and Sean had a very large wedding party. All of Dana’s lovely bridesmaids wore matching long blush gowns and carried beautiful white rose bouquets. It was a very soft, romantic look and perfectly captured the chic, glamorous atmosphere that Dana had envisioned for her wedding day.
In the crisp winter air, formal photos, captured by Artistic Imagery were taken while we filmed the couple and wedding party along the center city Philadelphia streets and at the bridge. We were thrilled to be catching the couple walking in a winter wonderland!
The snow was lightly falling as we arrived at Cescaphe’s Tendenza. This stylish loft space features soft lavender uplighting, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, brick and stainless steel accents and sparkling crystal chandeliers. The gorgeous floral décor was courtesy of Beautiful Blooms.
Dana and Sean’s grand entrance was complete with a sparkler salute and cheers from the crowd! The couple kicked off the evening’s dancing for their guests, which was followed by energetic dancing by all in attendance. The dynamic nine-piece dance band, CTO Park Central, kept the guests on their feet right to the end!
Congratulations to Dana and Sean! May all of your days together be as beautiful and as cherished as your wedding day!
