Colorful Congress Hall Wedding, Beth & Joe

Colorful Congress Hall Wedding, tattooed bride, Cape May, Moody Photographers, Joy Moody

This colorful Congress Hall wedding with Beth and Joe was the best wedding to end on before my maternity leave! I went to college with Beth, she was in my photography class before switching majors our junior year. We had some fun film and video projects together and I still have test polaroids that we took in the studio! It was so special to be there for her on such a special day! Beth and Joe make such an adorable couple. They are brainiacs and athletes, they love science and technology, the outdoors, bikes and adventure! We had a great time wandering around Congress Hall for pictures, I never tire of shooting there, its so colorful and you are just naturally happy when you walk through the different spaces. We had a special appearance from the blue pig who is a prominent figure/mascot for the hotel. This was the first time I’d seen him and I’ve been there more than a few times. We had a lot of fun with him. Beth and Joe’s good friend Marc officiated the wedding, he was witty and funny and really gave the personal touch to the ceremony that fit Beth and Joe so well. It really was a fabulous day and I couldn’t be more thankful to be there to document it for them!

We had such a beautiful day in Cape May at Congress Hall! Robertson’s Flowers did a beautiful job on all the florals. Make Me Up Pretty was on point for the hair and make up, Beth looked stunning! True to Beth’s style the 80’s dance party reception took you back in time thanks to Enchanted Celebrations DJ’s! Pete Malone was on hand second shooting with me and all was right with the world! I loved all the black and white polka dots that accented the day, everything was perfect. Thank you for having us there with you, couldn’t be more excited for the both of you! Congratulations.

Cairnwood Estate Wedding, Kendall & Matt

Cairnwood Estate Wedding

Kendall and Matt had the most beautiful Cairnwood Estate Wedding! We managed to escape any threatening weather and had a beautiful June summer day. Kendall and Matt are way too cute together! We had so much fun photographing this day, family, bridal party and guests were so friendly and accommodating to us. The ceremony was on the front steps of Cairwood officiated by a judge and good family friend. Flowers for Friends provided the beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets.  The bridal party was so much fun, they were up for anything! We had a fantastic time with them. Kendall’s dad brought his red Triumph TR6 for them to have some pictures in. It was as fun addition to the photos, I love old cars, and it meant so much to Kendall. They shared their first dance outside under the stringed lights and evening sky. EBE Monte Carlo kept the party going all night! Sage Catering did an amazing job with the food, everything was delicious and looked beautiful. Bredenbeck’s didn’t disappoint with the cake, beautiful and tasty cake, they are always one of my personal favorite bakers. Working along side me all day was Jackie Bayne of Love Shack Photo, great photographer and friend I was so thankful to have her along side me all day! Thanks Jackie! Also working with us was Life Images Videography, they had a team covering it all, was a pleasure to work with them for the first time.

Thank you again for having us there to document such a special day! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Indian Valley Country Club Wedding Joy Moody Photographer

Amanda & Tyler had a beautiful wedding at the Indian Valley Country Club. They met when they were in the police academy together, you’ll notice a pair of custom engraved handcuffs come into play after the ceremony. The perfect ending to a wonderful union!  ha. Tyler had the best speech for Amanda as he cuffed her to walk down the aisle, she wasn’t getting away, thats for sure. We had a great time wandering the grounds of the country club for photos. The flower girls provided us with the ultimate cuteness and entertainment. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day. Schmidts Florist did a beautiful job on the flowers and bouquets. Snacky French provided a yummy cake! EBE kept the dance floor packed all night. Thank you Alexa Nahas for second shooting with me! It was a pleasure to capture this day for such a great couple.

Ballroom At The Ben Wedding, Jacqueline & Dan

ballroom at the ben wedding philadelphia, Joy Moody Photographer, Moody Photographers Inc.

Jacqueline and Dan had an amazing day! Its been a while since I’ve been to the Ballroom at the Ben for a wedding, I had forgotten how beautiful it is!

Jacqueline and Dan met at her sister Kelly’s wedding in 2011!  That just makes their wedding all that more special I think. It was great to see the family again for such a special occasion.

Alexa had the pleasure of photographing the guys before the ceremony, you’ll see they found an awesome bouncy castle to use for a backdrop. I was with the ladies at Jacqueline’s parents, an amazing house for pictures. I love shooting there.

The first look with Dad is one of the most special moments in this family, he is one proud Papa! Dad also continued the tradition of stepping on the brides veil after giving her away at the church, exactly the same thing he did with Jacqueline’s sister. Don’t worry that veil was secure and nobody was harmed in the stepping on the veil.

We took pictures around Independence Hall in Philadelphia. A great looking bridal party for sure! It was a beautiful spring day, couldn’t have asked for better weather! Jacqueline and Dan make an adorable couple. They both have these majestic blue eyes! Truly mesmerizing! Jacqueline’s dress was gorgeous an moved so beautifully. They were both just perfect.

The Ballroom at the Ben looked amazing! Marcus Hook Florist did a fantastic job with the flowers! The ballroom looked amazing. Big Ric was there to party the night away, I love Big Ric he has such a big personality and talent to match. The reception was a fantastic dance party! It was truly a perfect day all around. I couldn’t be more excited for this fabulous couple!


Enjoy this slideshow and some images from the day.

Patrick & Eric Lowes Philadelphia Wedding

Elegant Same Sex Philadelphia wedding

Patrick and Eric had a wonderful Philadelphia wedding celebration at the Lowes. They met each other while in school at Drexel University and knew they wanted to get married in Philadelphia as soon as it was legally possible. These two are pretty adorable together, its clear they were meant to be. I’ve known Patrick since he was in grade school so I’ve watched him grow up over the years, I even had him in one of my photo classes at Drexel! These guys make one talented combo, Patrick in the Design and Merchandising field and Eric in Video Production, they are both in NYC now. They always knew they wanted a Philadelphia wedding, after all Philadelphia is an important piece to their puzzle. Their vows were simple, humorous and from the heart. Its such a special thing to watch two people make such an important commitment to each other in front of their family and most cherished friends. There was laughing, crying and everything that goes in between. The love and support coming off everyone in that room was abundant! I couldn’t be more thrilled for them.

They did the floral arrangements themselves and rented live tree’s from a local nursery. The wedding was held in the Terrace Room of the Lowes, I didn’t even realize this room existed! It was beautiful with all the lights strung and reflecting off the glass. The ceremony was perfectly timed with sunset and a beautiful night sky glowing around them. DJ Deejay kept the party going with an uplifting fun dance set. It was an amazing day and celebrated Patrick and Eric perfectly.

The last image in the slideshow zooms into Patrick’s dads apartment, he installed a giant P+E in their window that could be seen from the Terrace Room at the Lowes. A special tribute to Patrick and Eric.

Thank you to Pete Malone for joining me, its always a pleasure to shoot with you!

Enjoy their slideshow and some images below.

Lisa & Phillip, Vie Wedding

Vie Wedding Philadelphia Moody Photographers

This was our last wedding in 2014 and it was a great way to end the year! Lisa and Phillip had an amazing day, they looked stunning and we had the perfect brisk fall day. It is always great to see all the hard work and planning couples go through all come together so beautifully. I had so much fun with the girls at the hotel before the wedding, such a great relaxed portrait session! The ceremony at St. Timothy’s Church was beautiful and we had a great time with the bridal party in Old City for pictures afterwards. This was my first time at Vie, its a beautiful venue. The Cescaphe Event Group does a splendid job. They earned some extra points for us as photographers as well by making us a special plate of food from cocktail hour as requested from Lisa. We are always in need of fuel when cocktail hour starts and it was just something small to make a big impact on our experience as photographers there that day. So thanks Lisa and Chescaphe!! This was such an amazing wedding to end the year with, congratulations to you and your families.

Nikki & Jason, Springfield Country Club Wedding

Springfield Country Club Wedding, Halloween Wedding

We spent Halloween this year with Nikki and Jason. Nikki was such a gorgeous bride and Jason cleans up real nice too. 🙂 It was a gorgeous fall day and a lively group! Jason is Irish and if you have ever been to a party with a bunch of Irishmen you know its a good time. Nikki is a teacher and they invited all of her students to the wedding ceremony. It was really fun to see them all so excited to see her get married. After the ceremony they were greeted by a friend of theirs playing bag pipes, if you have never heard them played live its a really great thing to witness.

We had such a great time with this bunch, they had trick or treating at all the tables for the kiddos and the kids got to put on their halloween costumes during the reception. Good times were had by all!

Julie & Jamie Cape May Wedding

corinthian yacht club wedding

We had a great time with Julie and Jamie on their wedding day. Julie was gorgeous and Jamie quite dapper. We go lucky with the weather and were able to squeeze in some outside beach pictures despite the threat of rain, the timing was perfect for it. Cape May is a beautiful place in the Fall, the beach is awesome because nobody is on it. The ceremony was beautiful on the inclosed patio at the yacht club. A beautiful string band played during cocktail hour upstairs and EBE handled the dance party the rest of the night. You’ll see, everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The outdoor space of the yacht club had a beautiful fire pit that was perfect for getting a bit of the chill in the night air and warmth of the fire at the same time. It was a beautiful day. Congratulations Julie & Jamie!

Trish & Pro, Crystal Tea Room

Philadelphia Wedding, Crystal Tea Room

This is going to be an epic blog post. Trish and Pro were married this past October at the Crystal Tea Room. Trish is Vietnamese/Chinese and Pro is Hindu. Needless to say there are many traditions that go along with each culture. They had their tea ceremony a few weeks before the Hindu ceremony and western ceremony. They have had a full calendar of events! We were with them for the Indian ceremony and the western ceremony. I love these weddings, one of my favorite to shoot. The energy and song and dance is the best! The aunts got Trish ready with her sari and traditional bengali face paintings. Pro and his entourage danced across Broad Street to the Crystal Tea Room in the baarat. He was met by his family and Trish’s family with the gifts and blessings. All the guests followed up to the atrium where Trish was brought in, hidden with two leaves until just the right time under a canopy. The ceremony was beautiful, I’ll let the pictures below do the talking. After the Hindu ceremony the bridal party went back to the hotel to start the getting ready process again, this time for the western ceremony. We had a little photo session at City Hall and then back to Crystal Tea Room. Their good friend presided over them for the ceremony which made it all that more special. After that it was time to party and let loose! Pro even go up on stage at the end of the night to shred on the guitar! (That’s the short and sweet version, I’ll let you get to the slideshow and images!)
