Lee & Brian, The Franklin Institute Science Museum

Lee & Brian married at beautiful St. Matthias Church in Bala Cynwyd.  Their reception for 200 was held at The Franklin Institute Science Museum.  Below are Lee & Brian and their bridal party entering the Franklin Institute.

Rebecca, the photos are stunning! You really captured the excitement of the day; the photos are priceless! Thank you so much for everything! ~ Lee & Brian

UPDATE 9/7/10-Just wanted to let you know that we received our wedding album upon arriving to our new home…everything looks wonderful! Now that I am slowly unpacking our apartment, I am taking breaks to look through all the great  images. Thanks again, Rebecca! We are so happy with everything. ~Lee & Brian


Lee is an architect, and if you follow my blog, you  know how I frequently incorporate architecture in my portraiture…Two days after their wedding, Bride magazine contacted me requesting an image featuring an interesting Philadelphia location — I thought the above photo would fit their request, so this may be published in the upcoming Bride Philadelphia edition.  The bridesmaid dresses match the Cleopatra banner.
