Valerie + Matt’s Wedding | Cescaphe Ballroom, Philadelphia, PA

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!

Joanna + Vasilios’ Wedding | Vie, Philadelphia, PA

10 Bridesmaids.  4 Flower girls.  11 Groomsmen.  2 Junior groomsmen.  Oh…and did we forget to mention over 400 guests in attendance?!  Joanna and Billy’s wedding day was so full of excitement, hustle and bustle, that it all seemed to fly by in the blink of an eye.  Even for us!

If we could only use one word to describe this magnificent day, it would be “FUN”.  Groomsmen shaving Billy’s facial hair, Joanna telling us how excited she was, celebratory handfuls of rice, and an evening filled with traditional dances that kept the party going all night long!

Joanna and Billy, what more can we say other than “thank you”.  Thank you for allowing us to photograph one of the most important days of your lives…thank you for hospitality…and thank you for being amazing friends!  Congratulations.

Weiwei + Tim’s Wedding | Vista at the Top of the Tower, Philadelphia, PA

SchultzWedding_0482

Weiwei and Tim initially met each other at Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.  So when it came time to start planning their wedding, they knew that the City of Brotherly Love was the place to have it!  From getting ready at the Logan Hotel, to getting married at the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, to dinner and dancing at the Top of the Tower…it was a perfect Philadelphia wedding.

While Mother Nature decided to throw a few raindrops our way, that definitely didn’t stop Weiwei and Tim from their plans of pictures in the city.  With stops at Broad Street, Elfreth’s Alley and Drexel University – it was an afternoon of iconic spots that were so important to this couple.

Weiwei and Tim, thank you so much for having us as invited guests during this most special time in your lives!  Congratulations.

Megan + Miteswar’s wedding | Top of the Tower, Philadelphia, PA

PurewalWedding_0771

When it comes to a wedding, traditional events and details play a major role in each couple’s day.  For Megan and Miteswar, they wanted all of their families and friends to take part in both of their cultural backgrounds.

The day started early in the morning, when Miteswar took to horseback for his Baraat.  Amazing musical performances and dances were held in his honor.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing this colorful event, you can check out a video clip we posted HERE.

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…

Kristina + Chris’ Wedding | Crystal Tea room, Philadelphia

There’s something about a wedding, the day after St. Patrick’s day, that gives off some good vibes.  Perhaps it was the “Luck O’ the Irish”, but we’re going to chalk it up to the fact that Kristina, Chris, their families and friends were nothing short of hospitable!

Memories, whether past or present, played a significant role in all of the wedding details.  Beautiful images of family members adorned Kristina’s bouquet, and her wedding dress hung in between her Christening and Communion dress…

Lisa and David’s Wedding | Downtown Club, Cescaphe Event Group

Lisa and David’s “destination” wedding took place in Philadelphia, on an absolutely gorgeous fall day.  From the moment we walked into the suite at Hotel Monaco, you could tell that Lisa and David are surrounded by so much love!  It’s no wonder these two hit it off when they met at a speed dating event.  Their relationship was truly meant to be.

Lisa and David, thank you for allowing us into your lives and for giving us the opportunity to photograph one of the most important days in your relationship.  Mazel Tov!

Olga and Joannis’ Wedding – Philadelphia, PA

When you plan for a winter wedding, sometimes, you get more than what you could have ever wished for.  Olga and Joannis’ winter wedding came complete with icicles, blustery winds and snow…lots of snow!  But with details of blue, silver and glimmering rhinestones, their fairytale wedding most certainly lived up to their winter wonderland theme.  Oh, and did we forget to mention the horse drawn carriage?!  Yep!  Merlin (quite the handsome horse), greeted us at Olga’s family’s farm.  To say that the entire “feel” for their wedding images was nothing short of picturesque, is probably quite the understatement.  We couldn’t have asked for anything more scenic, serene and snowy.

Olga and Joannis – you are both champs!  Thanks for strapping on the snow boots, wrapping yourselves in scarves and embracing the winter weather.  We couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect!  Congratulations.

Lindsay and Jim’s Wedding – Cescaphe Ballroom, Philadelphia, PA

Lindsay and Jim’s wedding day was like something out of a “How to Wedding Guide”.  When it came to all of the wedding plans, Lindsay knew exactly what to do and when to do it, then topped it all off by being one of the most organized brides, ever!  The wedding day was flawless from beginning to end, and since Lindsay just so happens to be a party motivator for Hot Hot Hot Entertainment, the only REAL way to celebrate this magnificent event, is with an even MORE amazing party.  A heart felt and emotional video montage, an Eagles chant with Swoop, an endless flow of Veuve Clicquot champagne, a super impressive Cescaphe flambé, and let’s not forget struts with the Mummers!  Let’s just say that if you ever need to throw a really high energy party – Lindsay and Jim are your planners.

Lindsay and Jim – it was truly an honor to capture this wonderful time in your lives.  From the “mini tour” of Philadelphia to the party that could have gone all night long, your wedding was a most memorable one.  Congratulations!
