Rainy Philadelphia Wedding // Jess + Brady


Philadephia, PA

I had the pleasure of traveling up to Philadelphia for Jess + Brady’s wedding at the Valley Green Inn this past Fall! After Jess got ready at her house with her bridesmaids, we drove a couple of miles down the road so she could step into her dress at her childhood home. This is the home she grew up in, which held so much meaning to her and it was so special for her to finish getting ready there. Jess and her father had the sweetest first look in the backyard before we loaded up the van and headed over to the ceremony!

Once we arrived, Jess and Brady had their first look in the rainy forest next to their venue and it was absolutely gorgeous! We took some photos and then tucked everyone away for the ceremony.

It had been overcast all day, but the rain had been holding off for us…until the ceremony! Thankfully, Jess and Brady are so laid back that they didn’t care one bit! They had a beautiful ceremony by the river, surrounded by fall colors in the tress while the rain drizzled down on everyone. Not one person complained and it was so beautiful!

Earlier in the day, Jess had told me that she had an outfit to change into for the reception. I just assumed that it was a different dress…but I was wrong! Jess walked out in an oversized t shirt, bicycle shorts, and old school Reeboks. It was INCREDIBLE and so her.

I had such an amazing time with these two and exploring Philadelphia for the first time. My only regret from this trip is not eating a Philly Cheesesteak ;)
