On nights like this — cold, rainy, sans functioning government — the only thing that can get me out of my funk are weddings. Thankfully I got to comb through the photos of not just any wedding — tonight I was treated to Vanessa and Casey’s glorious Philadelphia fete. When I opened up this catalog I felt like I had fallen into a dream. Vanessa and Casey’s celebration was a modern fairytale, chock full of elegant, timeless details that could easily be featured in the Vanity Fair party pages. If these pictures are any indication, this gorgeous bride and groom will have a beautiful life together.
This dress could have had it’s very own blog post. All of those stunning details — of course, the dress harkens from Jenny Packham — you know the couture design house that dresses my personal hero The Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) — no big deal!
I dare you NOT to smile along at these first look photos — I still have the gleeful grin after seeing these photos for the first time.
The ceremony and reception were both held at the elegant Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia. Their ceremony was clearly an emotional and love filled affair.
Vanessa and Casey — your day was perfect. Your photos are such a treasure and I’m so glad we got to share them with the internet!
