Nicole + Matthew | Ines Di Santo Wedding from The Studio Photographers

Nicole + Matthew’s Philadelphia wedding was a glamorous, shimmering downtown affair.  I love this couple’s choice of reception venue, The Franklin Institute in a grand room where Ben Franklin’s National Monument lives – really striking.  Other details not to miss, Nicole’s high impact Ines Di Santo gown, sweetheart neckline with a rouched bodice, dropped waist with a gorgeous flower to the side.  Nicole explains: “I removed the silk covered buttons down the back and added Swarovski crystal buttons…My dress also has a Swarovski crystal belt attached under the bust for an extra pop!” That sounds and LOOKS amazing.  Enjoy!

The Ceremony + Reception
We had a traditional Catholic Church ceremony.  Our reception was held at The Franklin Institute, in the room with Ben Franklin’s National Monument – A beautiful museum.

Nicole’s Dress Search
I knew the style I wanted and bought that style although it took me many places and many dresses to find the right one.

How Nicole Felt In Her Wedding Dress
Beautiful, Stylish, Glamorous

Why Nicole Decided To Sell Her Wedding Dress
This dress was very expensive…actually it was out of my budget but I had to splurge because I loved it so much. I will never wear it again so I hope I could sell it to someone who would love it as much as me with added bonus of it being a fraction of the price.
