Atrium at Curtis Center Wedding, Philadelphia, PA: Zane and Deana

Wedding season started off with a bang with Zane and Deana’s wedding at the Atrium at the Curtis Center on Friday evening. Ever since photographing their engagement session at Wissahickon Trail, I knew their wedding would be highly anticipated and so much fun! The couple got dressed and ready for the wedding at Hotel Monaco, in Philadelphia. Deana, fearfully, popped open a bottle of champagne which made for plenty of giggles and an awesome photo. After getting into her Hayley Paige gown with the help of mom and her girls, this bride was ready to start her day. Deana is absolutely STUNNING and that’s when I noticed her happy dance begin. Zane later told me that he loves her little happy dance and she does it often. A tear filled first look with dad completed our time at Hotel Monaco and we were off for Zane and Deana’s first look near Second Bank. Deana wanted Zane to see her walking toward him to have a resemblance of a coming down the aisle and Zane’s reaction was amazing. Zane and Deana were both able to be present in the moment SO many times throughout the day and truly enjoy everything that was going on around them. Next stop was City Hall in Philadelphia for bridal part portraits. The light in City Hall is a photographer’s dream and I was so glad we were able to capture so many moments there. We stopped at Washington Square Park to finish the formal photos of the day before walking to the gorgeous Curtis Center. Deana and Zane tied the knot (literally), exchanged the most heartfelt vows, and became husband and wife surrounded by their friends and family. The reception began with a canon shooting rose petals on Deana and Zane as they began their first dance. Under the gorgeous chandeliers at the Atrium at Curtis Center, family and friends danced and celebrated until early the next morning. My very best wishes to the new Mr. and Mrs. Deller!
