Michelle & Mike|Ballroom at the Ben Wedding

When you think of soulmates, it's hard not to imagine Mike and Michelle. They met at their jobs about a year before they started dating, but the universe had different plans for these two!

As time went on, their friendship grew stronger than ever before- suddenly finding themselves in love with one another.

Mike is a guy who will do anything for his friends and family. That's why it was no surprise when Michelle fell head over heels in love with him, especially when she knew that he had a kind and compassionate heart. It also didn’t hurt how charmingly funny her soon-to-be husband could make even the most mundane things seem fun (and anything else). 

As they say: love conquers all!

The Proposal

The proposal happened at the Dilworth Park Ice Rink at City Hall in Philadelphia. After a few laps around the rink, Mike surprised Michelle by getting down on one knee and asking for her hand in marriage. They spent the rest of the day celebrating with friends and ended the night watching the Flyers outdoor game at the Linc.

Many thanks to Michelle and Mike for trusting us to capture their amazing day!

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!

"Wow where to begin! Ralph was our photographer last year for our October wedding, from the first phone conversation I had with him I knew a made the right choice. I could not have been happier with how my pictures turned out as well as with the experience my husband and I had with Ralph and his entire team. Throughout the entire process Ralph took the time to make sure everything went perfectly even when it didn't. Ralph was professional, attentive, and patient to every email, text, phone call and question, including the ones asking him to resend our photos almost a year post wedding because it slipped my mind to download them. Can't wait to work with him and his team over and over again for year to come!"
