Michelle and TJ found me on The Knot, but actually went to college with another couple I photographed, Alicia and Paul. They chose one of my favorite venues, Brigalia’s in Sicklerville, for both their ceremony and their reception. After some quick photographs at the home where the ladies and gents were getting ready, we headed to Brigalia’s for some pre-ceremony portraits. The weather was hot and humid, and we actually struggled a bit with our lenses fogging up when we went from indoors to outside. Michelle and TJ were troopers, though, and we got a fantastic set of portraits both before and after the ceremony.
Michelle is a nurse in the Cardiac Intensive Care unit at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. TJ works as a behavioral health aid to children with Autism. They met back when they were just thirteen years old and have “kinda been stuck on each other since then.” They love to cook and take trips together, and just be in each others’ company watching their favorite television shows or just hanging out. I had an amazing time sharing their wedding day with them. The care for others they show in their daily lives as a nurse and health aid was easily evident in the love and care their friends and family shared for them. Everyone laughed joyously and with abandon throughout the celebration, which is rowdy and full of love all around. Their friends are practically family, and it showed all day long.
Michelle looked absolutely beautiful, as did all of the ladies with their hair and makeup done by Anthony J Hair Studio. Oops a Daisy Florists provided stunning sunflower arrangements. Linda Moore, with Angel of Love performed a lovely ceremony, after which it was time to party. A1 Entertainment had everyone dancing the whole night through, and Potito Bakery did their typical excellent job with the cake. Brigalia’s, one of my most highly recommended venues, provided the perfect environment and experience for Michelle and TJ.
Thank you so very much for giving me the honor and pleasure of capturing your wedding day. I loved meeting all of your friends and family, and I had a spectacular time celebrating with you!
