Loews Philadelphia Wedding |Arielle and Mike

"We met at the most unlikely of places" Arielle told me before their Loews Philadelphia Wedding: "a pig roast set up by mutual friends with the hopes of us leaving with a first date planned".

As Mike had already made Arielle dinner, it seemed only fair that a second date was in order. Sparks flew sometime between the first and second bottle of wine, and the rest was history. "From New York to Philadelphia and beginning our next chapter in Michigan, it's been nothing short of an adventure together".

There was a lot to for me to like about Arielle and Mike. They're easy to talk to, funny as hell and we share two passions: wine and traveling! Plus, how can't you like a couple that met and began their story at a pig roast!!

It was an amazing party at the Loews with this awesome couple and 300 of their closest friends and family...check out some of my favorite images from their Loews Philadelphia Wedding day.

Here are some favorites from their Loews Philadelphia Wedding beautifully captured by Ralph Deal Photography.

It was so nice and convenient that the getting ready session, ceremony and reception all took place at the Loews Hotel in Center City. No limos, buses or any transportation needed!! C.E. Facial Artistry did an awesome job as always for the ladies and Arielle looked gorgeous in her dress by Stella York.

A Message From The Bride

"We cannot say enough good things about Ralph Deal! 

We had met with a handful of photographers before a friend recommended Ralph to us.  From the moment we met him, I could tell that he was the right person to capture such an important time for us. I was really looking for somebody who connected with my husband and me and we found that in Ralph. His approach to our wedding was for it to be as natural as possible, I barely noticed him during the party but was beyond thrilled with how our story came together.  If you're looking for a photographer who will make you feel comfortable and at ease, look no further than Ralph. Not only does he take gorgeous photos, capturing the best moments of the best night of our lives, but you get to relive them from his studio with a great glass of wine!
Thank you Ralph, I will recommend you until the end of time!"

Bride & Groom

When you're having a Loews Philadelphia Wedding, all you really need to do for photos is walk outside the hotel and go for a walk! So much to do and see right in the area. Arielle and Mike wanted to keep it simple and head over to City Hall and utilize the beautiful architecture and light that is always available in that landmark building.
