We REALLY felt like family! Did you know that Sarah and Michael and (Zoe their dog too) spent some time in philly for a awesome pre-wedding shoot… So nice connecting with them in Philly where they walk everyday and live. You two are a very special couple! Jana created a one of a kind custom designed engagement sign-in book for guest signing at the reception. The party at the hotel was full of fun and celebration! A very special thanks to Sarah, Michael and all the families, bridal party, and Jillian and her staff at the Hotel DuPont ! I also wanted to mention, CTO “HEAT” for their great dance and party music. And what a pleasure working with Dave Pfafman of Dave Pfafman Videography .

The Hero’s Wedding

Monday, August 17th, 2009

We were a part of the Hero Wedding at Deerfield Country Club this past Friday. Jeff Robinson approached us with an idea about eight months ago. Deerfield was thinking about donating a wedding celebration to a deserving couple. Interestingly enough, Mike had a similar idea at almost the same time. So we joined the team of talented, local vendors who made a dream wedding possible for Sue & Joe. We had an amazing time working with the couple and their families. I can not imagine a more deserving and appreciative couple. They met while in service in Iraq and their relationship flourished. We were honored to witness and document their strong bond becoming official. Good luck to both of you!
Thank you all vendors involved for being a part of this team effort. We truly enjoyed working with you!

More photos coming soon.
