Jayne & Ryan – DoubleTree Philadelphia, PA

Where do I start?! This was the first wedding of the season and it started with a bang. Not only Jayne and Ryan were wonderful to work with (thank you for giving me freedom to play) but their wedding will be featured on the TLC’s Four Weddings show. I have no doubt that they will be the winners (sorry other brides 🙂 ). I’ll post the dates as soon as I find them out, so check back for updates.

Lisa DeLuca from DoubleTree Philadelphia did an amazing job at coordinating everything. The entire event went smoothly and everybody had a great time.

We started at the DoubleTree hotel with the preparations: first the guys and then moved on to the girls.

… and captured some beautiful moments as they saw each other for the first time…

I love the expression on this image…

The ceremony also took place at the DoubleTree hotel. John Kevin Gallagher did a beautiful job (you will see what beautiful arrangements did in the reception room as well)…

The ceremony was officiated by none other than John DeBella of Philadelphia’s Classic Rock 102.9 WMGK

The reception followed shortly ….

…. and if the introductions were an indicator, this would be a great party …

… it started slowly with the first dance and parents dance…

… and then, Jeff from Signature Djs did his magic and had everybody dancing and having a great time all night long…

…. even if you had a walker ….

… and a dance off between a 20 days old and a …. guest 🙂

Unfortunately (for you), I’ll have to end this post (if you were a guest, don’t worry, you’ll see all the images shortly) but not before posting a couple more pictures of a beautiful couple:

Jayne and Ryan, thank you again for allowing me to be part of your day.

  • John Kevin Gallagher - Hello there,
    The photos look amazing! You captured everything in the brilliant colors that they were! Jayne and Ryan look like they enjoyed every moment as I am sure they did! Lisa De Luca is a dream to work with and the whole team flowed together seamlessly. My biggest fear as the decorator was concern for the fish being alive and happy throughout the evening and when I left, everybody looked perky and well!

  • Lisa DeLuca - Vali – you did a great job of capturing them – just beautiful as they are! If someone didn’t have a great time with Ryan and Jayne – then it truly was their own fault! They had a great party!
    Thanks to all the “partners” who helped to make this a great day for everyone.
    I love this job!

  • Valentin - John – I’m happy to tell you that the fish were alive,well and “kicking” 🙂 The decorations were beautiful.
    Lisa – it was a fun night and everybody had a great time. Thank you for making my job easier.

  • KathyAnn - They are amazing and the colors are so true to the actual event. Jane and Ryan look so happy. I am glad I was able to be a part of this very special day. And, I know, that Uncle Bill is very sad he missed it.

  • Jayne Overturf - We’re finally home from the honeymoon and getting used to married life!
    These photos are AMAZING!I can not WAIT to see the rest of them; I feel like I missed so much that day; and I’m so glad you were there to capture everything.
    John-the flowers and centerpieces were to die for, Such incredible designs, thank you so much!
    Lisa-the venue was top notch; everyone said they have NEVER been to a nicer wedding and the staff was full of such hardworking kind people.
    Scott/Jeff-the music and lighting was more than we ever imagined; a million thanks!

    Thanks so much for everyone’s hard work; our day wouldn’t have been the same with out you!

  • Valentin - Thank you Jayne and Ryan … I hope you had just as much fun as I did making the pictures

  • Craig @ Cutting Edge Entertainment - Amazing photos as always Mr. V. Especially #4,5,6,7… oh well… just about all of them.

  • Valentin - Thank you Mr. C.

  • Reid Overturf - Jayne and Ryan,

    I also continue to hear “best wedding I’ve ever been to” from my family and friends. Well done you two! I know however, that it couldn’t have been done without the help of Lisa, John, Scott and Jeff, the hotel staff and family and friends too. Everyone was excellent and these pictures are outstanding. They capture what a beautiful, special and fun wedding that it was.

    I am so happy for and love you both,
