CaponePhotography2017_0009

We appreciate our clients.  We love them like family, and we are so honored to be a part of their lives.  Let’s face it – they are hiring us to photograph their wedding.  A day that they have been dreaming about ever since they were a little kid.  So when the level of appreciation is reciprocated, it makes what we do that much more enjoyable!  Just recently, Valerie and Matt posted the most heartwarming review on our WeddingWire.com page.  When you get the chance, be sure to read it HERE.

To say that this day was fun, is an absolute understatement.  This couple, their families, their friends, all know how to party!  They were all so hospitable, and we can’t thank them enough for allowing us into their lives.

Valerie and Matt, from the bottom of our hearts, congratulations on this next journey.  We can’t wait for so many more momentous occasions in your life, because we know we’ll be there to document each and every one of them!

Aubrey + Anthony | Tendenza, Philadelphia

Aubrey and Anthony’s wedding was like something out of a fairy tale – the undoubtedly beautiful couple gets marred on a picturesque day, they are surrounded by loved ones while saying their “I do’s” in a gorgeous church, they dance their first steps as husband and wife in a stunning Cescaphe Event Group venue and they put their trust in top notch vendors to give them the wedding of their dreams.  It really is no wonder that their wedding images speak for themselves!

We are so thankful to have been a part of this fantastic event, filled with love, laughter…and happily ever after!  Congratulations.

Here are just a few of our many favorites from Aubrey and Anthony’s wedding day…

There is nothing like the father of the bride seeing his “little girl” as a bride for the very first time, while mom watches on…

Briana and Ricky’s Wedding – Cescaphe Event Group | Atrium at the Curtis Center, Philadelphia, PA

Love in Philadelphia.  It was a theme that carried itself throughout the course of Briana and Ricky’s wedding.  Whether it was the “LOVE statue” ice sculpture, having their guests dine on Broad Street…Packer Ave…or Rittenhouse Square, to telling a “Philadelphia Love Story” through a pretty amazing wedding cake design – it is no doubt that the City of Brotherly Love plays quite the significant role in Briana and Ricky’s relationship.  After all, it’s where they had met each other about 3 years ago!

Briana and Ricky – From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for allowing us to be invited guests during your amazing Cescaphe wedding.  We sincerely had a great time being a part of the #RickyAintSingle celebration! 😉 Congratulations.

Allison and Tom’s Wedding–Cescaphe Event Group’s Tendenza, Philadelphia, PA

Allison and Tom’s love has certainly traveled!  Mexico, New Orleans, Madison and Juneau are just a few of the cities they have visited.  When we spoke to Allison the week of the wedding, she told us about their trip to Juneau, Alaska.  “While we were there, Tom really liked the Alaskan White beer they brew.  So as one of his wedding gifts, I was able to ship a case back home so he could enjoy it again!”   While Tom opened his ice cold beer, Allison opened her gift from Tom and was treated to a pair of stunning diamond earrings.

An Eagles/Giants ice sculpture, personalized “Mr. and Mrs.” champagne flutes and the Philadelphia Mummers.  For Allison and Tom, it was all about the details for their wedding reception at Tendenza

Allison and Tom – you came from two different ends of New Jersey, but somehow, found each other.  Kudos to Fairleigh Dickinson University for helping make that happen!  For more images of their Philadelphia wedding, check out Allison and Tom’s personal Facebook album by clicking HERE.

Janey and Eugene’s Wedding – Tendenza, Philadelphia

The day started at the Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Philadelphia, as Janey sat in a chair and had her makeup applied by Jina of JAC Beauty.  Bridesmaids helped Janey slip into her Casablanca wedding gown and step into her pink Manolo Blahnik heels.  As the finishing touches of Janey’s lipstick were applied, her elegant pearl jewelry from Tiffany & Co. and Mikimoto were fastened.  Her bridesmaids, family and friends cheered for joy as Janey had turned into a beautiful bride.

Eugene patiently waited in the hotel suite right next door to where Janey got ready.  Groomsmen assisted in helping Eugene get ready, then celebrated the Groom-to-Be with a shot of Macallan 12.  Even though it wasn’t the Bacardi 151 they used to drink back in their college years, Eugene and his men toasted to all of their past memories and and so many more to come.  Including all of those with Eugene’s future wife.

Janey and Eugene’s ceremony and reception were held at the modern Tendenza in Northern Liberties, and floral arrangements were created by the always innovative Il Fiore Bianco.  It was an ultra chic wedding from beginning to end!

Jen and Ryan’s Wedding at Cescaphe’s Atrium in the Curtis Center

Jen’s family is from Portugal, so she and Ryan made a special trip to visit with them and also to tour parts of the country.  In fact, many beautiful photos from their trip were on display at each table at their reception.  Oh, and while they were there, Ryan proposed to Jen.

The email we received from Ryan back in January read:

Subject: My gift to Jen

“…When I proposed to her in Portugal, she was sitting at a table pushed up close to a wall so I ended up kind of sitting instead of kneeling when I proposed and I think sometimes we wished it was on my knee.  So here’s my idea…The first time Jen sees me, and since we’re taking pictures before the ceremony, I would like to do an almost, “re-asking of Jen to marry me”.  The problem is I fear tears will effect her makeup…Please…this is of the utmost secrecy…”

Well, the “re-asking” and the tears happened – and Jen’s makeup held up just fine!

A terrific couple, an emotional, amazing day!

Jen and Ryan, your wedding day was very classy and unique, a definite reflection of the two of you.   We wish you a life full of fun, romance and excitement – and Jen, we printed the email from Ryan and saved it for you!  😉

Christina and John’s Wedding – Cescaphe Ballroom, Philadelphia, PA

Today is Christina’s birthday.  Today is Christina’s wedding day.  Today is a day she will never forget.  She looks stunning in her Rivini and said that shopping for it at Kleinfeld in Manhattan was an “awesome experience.”

John and his groomsmen wait patiently in the hotel lobby for the trolley, which will take them to the Philadelphia Art Museum.  He and Christina are going to meet for the first time before the ceremony for their photographs.

So far, it has been an emotional and anxious time, but during that intense moment when Christina and John finally get to see and hold each other on their wedding day – everything is perfect.  What a good feeling!  Their ceremony is at St. Thomas Greek Orthodox in Cherry Hill.  It’s a beautiful, ornate church filled with family and friends who were all there to share this amazing day.  After their ceremony, Christina and John were showered in bubbles.

CescaphÈ is, in one word, exquisite! Joe and his team always do it up right.  After an impressive cocktail hour, Christina and John are introduced to the crowd as they descend a stairway alive with sparklers – it’s so cool!   DiNardo Brothers and A&A Celebrations provided just the right music to keep the party going all night.  As Christina and John danced their first dance, a bottle of Cristal is placed next to their table.  The Cristal reflects them and their day – top notch.

Christina and John, your day was fabulous!  It was filled with wonderful people and truly happy moments, as we are sure the rest of your life together will be.  Enjoy the sneak peeks below and then see a few more on our Facebook page by clicking HERE.

Burke Wedding – The Atrium, at the Curtis Center, Philadelphia, PA

Megan and Greg’s relationship dates back to their freshman year at Gloucester Catholic. Talk about high school sweethearts!

Their ’09 winter wedding definitely lived up to it’s time of the year..it was REALLY cold this day, but Megan, Greg, their family, and friends really kept our minds off of the fact we couldn’t feel our shutter finger!  Thanks for hangin’ in there everyone!!

We started at the Omni Hotel in Philadelphia and carried out the Philly theme throughout the course of the day. Their ceremony was at the beautiful Saint Mary’s Church in Gloucester, NJ. Followed by the reception (back over in Philadelphia) at the Curtis Center, catered by Cescaphe. We did a lot of traveling that day!! 🙂

Congratulations Megan and Greg!

The wind helped with this picture, but also helped with the single digit temperatures!!

LOVE this picture.  It really shows how much fun they were having.  How often do you get to walk the streets of Philadelphia…in a wedding dress?!

So because Megan and Greg met at Gloucester Catholic High School, it was only natural that we roamed the halls and captured some killer imagery!
