Ridgeland Mansion Wedding | Stefanie + Pat
I am in LOVE with this Beautiful Ridgeland Mansion Wedding!! And even more in Love with Stefanie and Pat. We had just the best time photographing this super chill, sweet, beautiful couple (and of course Frankie when he stopped by for his photo op!!)
Stefanie and Pat met over three years ago on Ok Cupid. While they both used to be teachers, Stef is now a healthcare consultant and Pat works with an organization that works on nonpartisan issues in Philadelphia. Pat originally was planning on proposing on inauguration day, thinking it would be historical with the first woman president of United States being sworn into office. When that didn’t happen he decided he wasn’t going to let politics change his plans. He went ahead with the proposal anyways. And of course she said yes! Together they love to travel and spend time outdoors. While Pat considers himself an introvert, Stephanie is definitely very outgoing. She has no problem stating her opinion and I love her for that. We are like two peas in a pod despite being so different.
This Ridgeland Mansion wedding has so many great moments with friends and family
Ridgeland Mansion is just a perfect place for an outdoor wedding. The ceremony area is so beautiful. I love that the bridesmaids all wore different colored dresses that really showed their personality. In my opinion, that is the best thing one can do for their wedding party. Just let people be comfortable being themselves. And the guys looked awesome in their tuxes.
Their ceremony was filled with so many tender moments. They had already legally married and they decided to pass their rings around and have everybody give them away in their own style. That was a great moment to just pause and let everybody be apart of the wedding ceremony.
The reception was a non-stop dance party. Thanks to their DJ from EBE, the dance floor was never empty. You could just tell how much Stef loves to dance. And especially the awesome dancing with her and her dad. Just so many great moments. She changed into an amazing pantsuit so she could really get down!!! I think it’s always great when brides changes into something they can move around in during the reception. So many wedding dresses are just so restrictive no matter how beautiful they are. The food by Joshua’s catering was delicious and of course we loved the extra snacks: Weckerly’s Ice Cream and Federal Donuts!!! YUMM!!!
Everything about the day it was perfect. The weather was amazing. All the vendors were awesome to work (Especially Jen from Joshua’s Catering). The wedding party was super fun and laid-back. And this Awesome Possum couple is just so sweet and in love. What more could we ask for!!! We know they will have a lifetime filled with love, adventure and lots of dog kisses!
