The Perfect Philadelphia Elopement • Haley Richter Photography


We shouldn't play favorites, but from the moment Haley Richter sent us this Philadelphia elopement, we've been counting down the days until we could share it. Kerry + Bill's City Hall wedding is absolute perfection. From helping her into her dress, to the love notes they read at home, to their quiet dinner for two... we secretly wish we could have been there to watch. And to top it all off, their adorable puppy Roan was there to share in their joy, making the day even sweeter. Classy, elegant and oh-so-sweet, this elopement will have us smiling all day. 

From Haley: Kerry and Bill were married this past November on a Thursday at Philaelphia's City Hall. I absolutely loved that Kerry and Bill got ready at their home together. He helped her into her dress and read notes to each other- which was such an intimate and beautiful moment to capture. Their pup, Roan, also got to be apart of their day and made the wedding album! After having a small and intimate ceremony outside City Hall, we captured photos around Independence Hall, which was the perfect backdrop for their elegant look! They ended their celebration dining at Wm. Mulheirn's Sons in Fishtown. Their elopement was simple with classic elements mixed with some modern flare- like Kerry's sequin white dress and photos we snapped around the unique murals and textures in Fishtown.
