Philadelphia, here we are - what a story!!! We are thrilled to deliver insight into our job as destination wedding photographers in the United States. If you believe it or not, we as Austrians were hired to photograph Megan & Dan`s beautiful wedding in Philadelphia at the Please Touch Museum. We had such a great time with the two of them as well as their families and friends. They all welcomed us as we would be part of their family, thank you so much! Maybe you remember the map seen in the blog post in front of the bridal gown? We had the honor to photograph Dan`s surprise proposal in Zurich during their holidays two years ago. A few weeks before they traveled to Europe Dan contacted us if we could capture his surprise proposal without getting recognized. We had goose bumps while he asked Megan if she will marry him, feel free to check out images of her wonderful reaction as well as some engagement photos on our blog. That`s the story how we first met these two lovebirds. More than one year after this highlight we received an email and we were stoked. They asked if we would travel to the States to capture their wedding as well. Of course we do, what an honor! So let the wedding story begin.

Dan`s final preparations took place at Sonesta Hotel in Philadelphia and Megan got ready at her parents home. They had a fall theme and chose gorgeous orangish bridesmaids dresses as well as matching groomsmen socks. Megan and Dan`s ceremony was held at the Chapel on Saint Joseph`s University`s campus in Philadelphia where they both attended undergraduate studies and started dating. This place is so beautiful, don`t you think it looks a tiny bit like Hogwarts in Harry Potter? At least it reminded us of lots of movies. The reception was held at the incredible Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. It is actually a children`s museum housed in a building called Memorial Hall that was built in 1876 for the U.S. Centennial Exposition. The cocktail hour took place at the Carousel House where all the guests were able to ride the 100 years old and still working carousel - unbelievable! We had all such a good time and the guests rocked the dance floor. At the end of this extraordinary day we had the wonderful opportunity to get a ride with a school bus, pretty cool! As the Sonesta Hotel, where most of the guests and also we checked in, is pretty close to City Hall we had to do a night shot in the middle of the street to end this wonderful wedding reportage!

Megan and Dan, we can`t thank you enough for your trust, for asking if we would travel to the States for your gorgeous wedding, for welcoming us so friendly, for your gifts at the hotel room when we arrived - for EVERYTHING! It was such a pleasure working with you and we are so happy that we could make it! Let us know when you are in Europe again, we would love to catch up. Wishing you a wonderful start into your married life and we hope to meet you soon again - xoxo!
