Villanova Cathedral in Philadelphia Wedding: Gianna + AJ
A Fairytale Wedding For Villanova Alumni’s at the Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia
Gianna + Aj
Gianna & Aj’s fairytale Philadelphia wedding was super dreamy. A Girl meets a boy they fall in love and live happily ever after. These Villanova grads took their wedding back to a time that was very meaningful to them. They wedded at the Villanova Cathedral in Philadelphia. This was a special event because not just anyone can be married at this Cathedral. The newlyweds then went and had a beautiful dreamy reception at the Ritz Carlton, in an exquisite, old bank where the functions are held in the vault.
Lights, Camera & Action
The newlyweds got primed and ready in their suites alongside their tribe. The Bride admired her gorgeous dress, read her handwritten exchanged letter from her Groom, and had her first look with her father. Then was driven to the Cathedral with her Mom and Dad to be wedded.
The groom was stunned by the beauty of his Bride as she walked down the aisle to him. The newlyweds said their vows in front of family and close friends during their Catholic Ceremony held by the Cathedral’s Priest.
MR. & MRS.
The couple was announced, for the first time, as Mr. & Mrs. they toasted to their new title as husband and wife. J&J’s Studio flawlessly captured every detail of the newlywed’s big day.
The Grand Reveal
Of course, my favorite thing of all weddings is seeing everything my Bride and Groom dreamt about finalized. The Grand Reveal is the rushing feeling when your Bride and Groom get to be astonished and taken away by my creations!
Butterflies (a shared connection between the Bride and her Father) to Villanova flags, the reception had all the meaningful details for these newlyweds. The tables had red velvet curtains towering over them and were dressed with crisp white linens, topped with fancy crystal glasses, and placed with silverware. The newlyweds had all wedding traditions: listened to speeches, cut their cake, had a father-daughter dance, and of course, had their first dance. They celebrated like a true fairytale.
Congratulations, Gianna & Aj! May your love shine like sparkles from a fairy Godmother’s wand: today, tomorrow, and always.
