A Lovely Philadelphia Wedding at Water Works by Cescaphe

If you’re dreaming of a wedding that captures the essence of the city’s charm and beauty, look no further than Teresa and Chris’s magical celebration at Water Works by Cescaphe. Teresa kicked off her wedding day with a morning of laughter and fun at the W Hotel, surrounded by her closest girls. After hair & makeup were complete, Teresa slipped into her Enzoani gown from Country Way Bridal, it was time for first look.

Chris eagerly awaited his bride-to-be on the rooftop deck, where their first look unfolded against the backdrop of Philadelphia’s iconic skyscrapers and skyline. It was such an epic moment! With traditional vows set for the ceremony, Teresa and Chris took the opportunity during their first look to exchange private vows—a touching moment shared just between them. Afterward, we ventured to Fairmount for more portraits, basking in the warmth of a gorgeous spring day along the river.

The ceremony took place at Water Works. Teresa’s dad rocked special socks with the phrase “Special socks for a special walk” a heartwarming gesture that brought a smile to Teresa’s face. With a close friend officiating the ceremony, love truly filled the air as Teresa and Chris exchanged vows and said yes to forever. After, it was time to party! The ballroom at Water Works, with its open-air design, provided the perfect setting for an evening of celebration under the stars. As Teresa and Chris took to the dance floor, they serenaded each other with Taylor Swift’s “Love Story.” It was such an adorable moment that made us swoon! It was so much fun capturing this sweet couple. T&C, thank you for having us!

Engaged couples searching for vendors for their Philly wedding, take note—Water Works by Cescaphe is the epitome of elegance and romance, offering a one-of-a-kind backdrop for your special day.
