I’M ON A BOAT!
Megan & Brenden’s gorgeous wedding day was jam packed with non-stop adventuring with one of the most off-the-hook parties I have ever photographed. I had an incredible team with me that day (thanks Annie & Dan!), but even with three photographers, we were put to the challenge to cover all the energy and happenings going on. I was literally hanging from the rafters swinging out into the crowd to capture the insane energy as the dance party roared on. It was a beautiful day, and Brenden picked Megan up about 84749585 times out of sheer joy and excitement. Also, when you are a rugby player that can easily pick up your girl with ease, I will likely encourage that as much as possible. 🙂
Megan & Brenden exchanged vows at Philadelphia’s historic Old St. Joseph’s church, and then after adventuring all over Queen Village and Spruce Harbor Park (with a quick game of skee ball!) we headed to their epic, legendary landmark party spot. ‘The Moshulu is the world’s oldest and largest square rigged sailing vessel still afloat. She is in fact the one and only restaurant venue on a Tall Ship today in the World.” You can read more about the history of the Moshulu here: http://www.moshulu.com/history.html. I should also mention the Moshulu is also comes with some of the nicest staff most impressive offering of delicious food and drinks I’ve seen in a long time. The sun sparkled off the water and streamed onto the deck as the dances and toast began…and it was pretty much magic.
As the party rolled on, so too were some special on site hand-rolled Cortez cigars… a present from Megan to Brenden, it was a special touch to the top deck goers who were taking a break from the non-stop dance party below by their fantastic band, Chico’s Vibe. It gave us a chance to grab some special sunset/evening shots, and a sweet moment setting off a special lantern into the sky for Megan’s Mom. Guests were offered Philadelphia water ice and soft pretzels for late night snacks as they grabbed a sparkler to see off this couple off style. It was quite the wedding folks. I needed to sleep for about 4 days after this one. But it was incredible, and I personally consider the awesome team of planners at Eastern Shore Events and my amazing photo team top dog rock stars for the non-stop party ship we sailed into the night.
