Philadelphia Cricket Club, Proud to Plan, Petals Lane

I received a phone call at 1:00 on a Saturday with news that no couple want to hear! Their wedding photographer had cancelled at the last minute.  The bride was already in her gown and the preparation festivities were nearly completed.   I cancelled my Saturday night date, pulled my hair into a pony tail and was on location shooting within one hour.  Special thanks to Proud to Plan for pulling it all together!  Being a photojournalist for The Philadelphia Inquirer was  great training for emergencies.  I was so happy  to help out such a nice couple, Liz and Gavin and here they are on their wedding day!  Thank goodness they have professional photos!

We cannot thank you enough, Rebecca!  The pictures look beautiful! Great to get a preview of what’s to come! Thank you!! ~Liz and Gavin
