Classic Downtown Philadelphia Wedding at Cathedral Basilica • Emily Wren Photography


It's just getting colder and colder here in the northeast, but our weddings keep reminding us that warmer weather is just a few months away. Kelly & Andrew's summer wedding at Cathedral Basilica in Philadelphia is perfection on every level. A sophisticated dress, mismatched bridesmaid dresses, and bold and organic florals all made this wedding a modern classic. One of our favorites, Emily Wren, was there to capture it all, putting her signature touch on everything. 

From Emily: Kelly & Andrew's wedding was a beautiful juxtaposition of modern and traditional, romantic and carefree! They chose The Cathedral Basilica in Downtown Philadelphia for their ceremony location; a stunning, impressive church full of grandeur and awe. For portraits we took a quick walk over to The Barnes Museum, stopping under a canopy of sycamore trees and playing with the reflections in pool that surrounds the modern museum. Kelley looked absolutely beautiful with her free-flowing locks and chic classic Theia gown from lovely bride. Her summer bouquet by Flourish Floral Artistry was bright and fun!

JG Domestic The Cira Center was the perfect reception location for these two. A great mix of rustic, sleek and modern. The bright blooms really popped against the clean and open backdrop of the reception room. My heart just melted watching Kelley & Andrew's first dance. These two were brimming with excitement all day!
