Francesca + Brian, Union League

Francesca + Brian dance their first dance in Lincoln Hall at The Union League in Philadelphia, entertainment by EBE’s Dreamtime.   One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is the first dance, I love how the bridal party, the guests and your family stand in honor of your just married status! I particularly love this this photo from The Union League as it reminds me of a still photo from a mid-century film.

Hi Rebecca, the pictures are beautiful!  It was so great working with you the day of our wedding, you captured so many of the moments so perfectly – especially the photos of our first dance.  Thank you so much for all that you have done!    Sincerely,  Francesca
