Sarah and Nick’s wedding was absolutely perfect in every way. This beautiful, grand wedding event was held at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia and as the bride and groom are both doctors, the chosen venue couldn’t have been more apropos. This historical building is home to the oldest medical society in the US and features a stately, columned marble rotunda and opulent period furnishings. And this couple certainly was as delightful and as perfect for each other as they come!
Their wedding ceremony took place at The First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia. Sarah and Nick wrote their own personal vows, which we absolutely love. As they not only professed their love for each other, they announced their admiration as well, and how much each inspired the other to be the best person they can be. They were so well written and deeply moving.
Sarah looked so glamorous in her strapless, lace covered trumpet silhouette gown. The beautiful bridesmaids wore matching royal blue gowns and Nick and his groomsmen were sharp dressed men in their classic black tuxedos. We were sure to film the party while fabulous formal photos were taken in front of the church and around the city by award-winning photographer Jim Heine.
We were in awe of the sensational toasts given to honor Sarah and Nick at their reception. Their parents‘ speeches were both lighthearted and sentimental, and Sarah’s sister and the best man delivered heartfelt tributes to the couple. And of course, one of the highlights of the reception was Sarah and Nick’s wonderfully choreographed first dance! Their routine was flawless!
Once again, Beautiful Blooms supplied impeccable floral arrangements and décor. And Urban Guerilla Orchestra, led by Henri McMillian, kept the dance floor packed with their high energy rock and funk classics and more!
One more note about their “to a tee” personalized reception: they chose to have blood themed cocktails, not only fitting for two doctors but also a perfect idea for a wedding held in the same building that houses the Mütter Museum, a medical museum featuring historical medical instruments, studies and human oddities!
Sarah and Nick’s wedding was so unique and such a pleasure to film. The two make a perfect couple and we know their love will only grow stronger each day. Heartfelt congratulations to Sarah and Nick!
