Ann-Michele & Noah, Abington Art Center

Ann-Michele is a dance therapist, and Noah is a music therapist…they met at work of course!   The couple married at the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia and held their reception at the always welcoming Abington Art Center.

Bride Ann Michele says:”  I’m  SOOO excited!!!  I’m viewing on my blackberry and can’t wait to see on a regular screen!

The photos are incredible!!  Spectacular!

Thank you so much, Rebecca!!!!”

Noah’s cousin Sara says: “Your wedding photos are incredible!” You and Noah’s love for each other is SO APPARENT in each photo…

Plus, you both look AMAZING!”

I  shot some quick, fun portraits of both Ann-Michele and Noah separately at the church,  prior to their ceremony.

I love this photo of Ann-Michele and her parents starting their trip down the candlelit aisle at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia.  The candlelit service was multi-cultural, including elements from Ann-Michele’s Romanian Orthodox background and Noah’s Jewish heritage. The couple circled the chuppah three times while wearing Orthodox tradition crowns. Note the stones holding the ketubah in place, below.  At far right is Reverend Nate Walker, who had a wonderful voice that sounded like honey (well, you know what I mean)!  This ceremony was full of tradition, yet extremely unique and  made great photos!

WOW, what an awesome kiss!  Their body language and hand placement reveal how comfortable they feel kissing in front of all of their guests.

First, imagine the Star Wars music they had playing….then Ann-Michele & Noah’s bridal party created an archway of  lightsabers for the                                       couple to exit through, how fun!

Reception at the Abington Art Center, even beautiful in the rain!  I have worked consistently there for years and am a referred photographer.  It’s a beautiful venue combining nature and art. Perfect for couples wanting an outside party without having to have a tent! Catering by Jeffrey Miller Catering.
