A Modern Wedding at The Lucy by Cescaphe

Lydia & Jeff’s modern Philadelphia wedding at The Lucy by Cescaphe is one of our favorites! This stylish couple absolutely nailed all of the details, making this gallery equal parts modern & timeless. The day began with Lydia getting ready at this Philly couple’s home. Her modern, chic style shined through her details & accessories, and it was so fun to capture! She popped champagne with her girls and was even joined by their sweet pup Benson. Jeff got ready at the W Hotel in Center City, before making his way to the chapel.

The couple exchanged vows in a historic church nestled in the heart of Center City. The ceremony was a blend of tradition and spirituality. Lydia stunned in her elegant gown and walked down the aisle as friends and family looked on with tearful smiles. It was so sweet seeing Jeff’s face seeing her for the first time on their wedding day! After the “I do’s,” the newlyweds emerged from the church as husband and wife, they were met with an enchanting bubble exit receiving line. Giggles and laughter filled the air as friends and family showered them with warm wishes.

Following the church ceremony, the couple and their bridal party ventured into the historic streets of Old City Philadelphia for portraits. With a backdrop of cobblestone streets and colonial architecture, this spot is always one of our favorites for portraits. The charm of Old City is unmatched! Later in the evening, the celebration continued at The Lucy by Cescaphe, an elegant Philadelphia wedding venue that exudes modern luxury. The reception hall was adorned with opulent décor, setting the stage for an unforgettable evening. The table settings were stunning and made the space feel so romantic! Guests raised toasts to the couple’s happiness and danced the night away beneath shimmering chandeliers.

As the night drew to a close, the newlyweds made their way outside for one more toast with the iconic Philadelphia City Hall in the background, where they popped champagne in front of its majestic facade. We are absolutely obsessed with how these photos turned out! It was so much fun with this couple, and we are so excited to share the gallery! L&J, thank you for having us! Scroll to see all the magic!
