It was on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes that James first asked Mary Katherine out on a date. Little did they know then that just a few short years later they would become husband and wife in Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Philly.
Their day was filled with joy, love, and faith. I arrived shortly before Mary Katherine got into her wedding dress in the back of the church. A close family friend made her beautiful dress (can you believe it?) and it was absolutely perfect for Mary Katherine! Mary Katherine and James opted to do a First Look because they had decided to process into their wedding Mass together, a lesser-known option in the Catholic Marriage Ceremony.
Following their ceremony, we headed to The Great American Pub for their reception. We walked around the block to get some more portraits (which turned out to be some of my favorite of the day) and then we headed inside to celebrate!
Mary Katherine & James, it was so great to get to know you both and I was honored to photograph your wedding!
A huge thank you to all the other vendors who came together to make this day possible!
