This wedding was like no other that I have attended or photographed before. This wedding was Melanie and Paul’s wedding.
Melanie and Paul both live in Brooklyn, NY, but met their friends and family in halfway Philadelphia for this unique wedding. The stylish and luxurious Hotel Palomar housed the getting ready stage of the day. I especially love the pop art mural of Benjamin Franklin painted on the roof of the hotel entrance; it totally makes the first-sight photo is this post. Then, we shuttled over to Philadelphia Art Museum‘s courtyard for some group photos. Soon after, we arrived at the Please Touch Museum where the religious traditions and celebration took place. The museum was absolutely overwhelming and it complimented the theatrical qualities of the couple perfectly.
The partying went long into the night and even included solo covers from members of the wedding party and Paul himself. He sang “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney. It was a really nice fit to the Alice in Wonderland and The Beatles inspired wedding. Loved it!
Mel and Paul, thank you so much for having us. It was an incredible experience. Lastly, huge thanks to the lovely crew at JPG Photography for making this possible.
