As the day approached,  I was prepared for a hot summer downtown club wedding with Megan and Nick.   I knew it was going to be one of the hottest days of the year,  and with all the stress added for a wedding day,  I  was prepared for a challenge, knowing full well I did not have a lot of time to get the pictures done before everyone wilted with the heat.

The day started as Megan and her girls got ready at the beautiful Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia.   With all the bridesmaid she had,  I strongly suggested that she got dressed and her mother’s suite,  where the lighting was absolutely perfect,  the room was perfectly clean,  and we had plenty of room to get Megan dressed and maneuver around for some pictures –  it was the perfect scenario.

Then after the church,  we went to the area behind The Second Bank  for some incredible pictures as the sun beat down on everybody.   Since I was able to work real fast,  I focused on my  attention on Megan and Nick,  moving them from scene to scene and getting some incredible images,  before they were ready to meld with the heat!

Then after that,  it was to The Downtown Club,  where it seemed like  everyone forgot about how hot it was inside,  and they continued the party into the night.

Megan  was a referral from many of her nurse friends at the Jefferson University Oncology Floor –  is group of girls have grown to be one of my one of my biggest groups of supporters,  and great friends as I photographed five of their weddings.

Thank you Megan and Nick for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day  as your photographer.  I’m sure that through your images you will look back with fun memories of this day even though we almost melted right to the ground……..lol!
