Cescaphe Water Works Wedding || Ashley + Bengi || BG Productions
We knew from the initial meeting Ashley and Bengi were going to be a Perfect BG couple!! They are super sweet, fun, and kept us laughing all through their engagement session and their beautiful Cescaphe Water Works Wedding.
Ashely and Bengi met on Tinder – see it CAN happen!! She is an ESL teacher so we could relate on the teaching front. (If you didn’t know I was a HS History teacher here in Philly for several years.) These 2 are just totally down to earth, just how we like our brides and grooms.
The weather in Philadelphia this Spring has been crazy to say the least. We seem to be skipping Spring. And even though it started to pour right before their first look, there were some moments where it stopped so we took advantage of it. Though it was still pretty chilly and very windy! But these two and their wedding party didn’t let it get them down for a moment. They were all laughs and smiles. Just as it should be.
The Water Works with Cescaphe is such a beautiful venue
With the rain, it forced us to just slow down and really be present and not try to make it to all the awesome photo spots we love. And once you look at a place from a different angle so much comes alive! Ashley looked Amazing and loved the girl’s black dresses. But we really loved Bengi’s grooms-womans pantsuit. I am LOVING this whole pant suit trend!
Bengi’s family is from Canada and Turkey so there was a lot of diversity in this Cescaphe Water Works wedding. We love it when couples bring their heritage into their wedding day and celebrate with traditions. And this was certainly a dancing crowd thanks to the awesomeness of DJ Smooth and MC Mike from Smooth Entertainment. The space at the venue was a little tight but that didn’t top anyone from gettin’ down!
We had a total blast with Ashley and Bengi. We are sad they live in Boston and wont get the chance to just hang out! And the rest of the BG Team – Matt and welcoming Beth to the BG Team – did a kick ass job!
