Sometimes you have a moment when there are no words… This is one of them. I really don’t know where to begin with Gray and Alisa’s wedding. Everything about it was beautiful; the couple, family, venues, the New Orleans themed parade… Yes, you read correct. A New Orleans parade right in the middle of Philadelphia’s streets! This is definitely a new favorite of mine!

It was the perfect summer day in Philadelphia, not too hot and not too cold. The clouds kept the sun at bay, sometimes threatening with a little rain. But by the time Gray saw his beautiful Bride coming down the isle, the sun was shining bright matching his very mood. Everything about Gray and Alisa’s wedding was joyful and bright. Surrounded by their friends and families they celebrated their day in New Orleans style, followed by a beautiful reception at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia where the celebration continued.

I am so grateful that our paths crossed. Thank you, Gray and Alisa for allowing us to be a part of your beautiful and happy day. I hope we met again! Best wishes!!!

The stunning Bride and Bridal party got ready at the Latham Hotel in Philadelphia.

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous grounds of the National Society of The Colonial Dames. The garden reminded me of the Secret Garden. Absolutely stunning!

Such an amazing way to celebrate your day. Everyone in Philadelphia was stopping to see what all the fun was about. Alisa and Gray certainly know how to throw a party!

This makes me laugh every time. Gray did not want to do the cliche ‘cutting of the cake’ photos, it’s obvious how painful it may have been for him. But as always, he gives in to please his wife and the couple had fun with it! These two… adore.

This was right after, haha, I’m sure he was reminding Alisa how silly he felt, but the love is so evident.
