Philadelphia Wedding | Courtney + Ruben | The Woodlands

It was not long into our Skype phone call when we knew we had finally found our perfect bride. She had us the moment the words slipped out of her giggling lips and right into our hearts . . . blue dress, flower crown and graveyard.  YES, YES, and YES!!! We swoon, head over heels for one-of-a-kind brides!!! And so began our love of Courtney, Ruben and Philadelphia-the city of brotherly love.

Courtney met Ruben in a friends small apartment kitchen. Their love of good food, wine and friends grew quickly and soon they were inseparable. All of these components were perfectly reflected in their wedding. Everything about their day was epic from the Vietnamese Taco truck to the best band we EVER danced to. Along the way, we photographed them in iconic spots such as Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia City Hall and ended our day in the famous and rustic property of Woodlands Cemetery where the 18th century grand Hamilton Mansion and stable along with elaborate Victorian monuments sit nestled in a 54 acre lush pastoral oasis in West Philadelphia.

Here is a glimpse into their epic friends, delicious food and unforgettable love story.
