Beautiful Bride: Ashton at Skytop Lodge by Sarah DiCicco

When it comes to weddings, I adore the classic – dress, venue, styling, and everything that is timeless.  Going to Skytop Lodge in the Poconos to help Ashton get ready to wed her Alex was like stepping into forever, as you can see by some of my favorite photos by the illustrious Sarah DiCicco.  Hair by Amanda D’Andrea.








On Film: Caitlin & David by CinemaCake

I can’t say it enough – a wedding film allows the bride and groom to see precious moments of the day that they might have otherwise missed. Philadelphia is blessed to have one of the best wedding filmmakers in the country, CinemaCake.

Caitlin was just ravishing and a delight to work with. Will post more photos from the remarkable Sarah DiCicco when they’re available…. enjoy!

Beautiful Bride: Emily Ciliberto

“Spunky glamour on wheels” – that is the way I would describe Emily, who married Jamie in November.  Photographer Daniel Moyer had a field day with the colorful backdrop that characterizes the Hotel Monaco in downtown Philadelphia.  Here are just a few  of those photos that delighted me.

Emily came to me as a daily wearer of false eyelashes, so she was used to a bit of cosmetic magic.   Because of her already perfect skin,  I was able to do maximum eye and still keep it looking real.

I was particularly moved by Jamie’s expression when he first saw Emily – happy tears of “first look” love.  And any bride who checks her make-up in the side mirror of a moped is a goddess to me.
