Yinan and Stephen hosted a beautiful and modern Hotel Monaco Philadelphia wedding, complimented by a traditional Chinese custom of tea ceremony. After their getting ready in the hotel, we sneaked onto the roof for the first look or as some of you might know it, reveal. When it was time for their portraits, we roamed around the Second Bank of Philadelphia which is a fine example of Greek Revival architecture. These marvels of architecture always make for the best environments and backgrounds for photos, and they represent perfectly that Philadelphian city charm.
Later we were back at the elegant Hotel Monaco (a Kimpton property) where Yinan and Stephen had their ceremony and reception party.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the awesome team that brought all this together. The girls were thankful for their beautiful makeup done by Monica. The amazing Anthony of Be Films made sure nothing will be missed from their story later on. Floral arrangements were brought to you by Carl Alan. And of course, the party wouldn’t have been as much fun if it weren’t for the talented musicians from Philadelphia String Quartet.
Thank you for letting me be part of your special day Yinan and Stephen!
