Old City Philadelphia Wedding Photography by Magdalena Studios Nicole Bill 0041

An Old City, Philadelphia Wedding At Ballroom At The Ben

Nicole & Bill’s Philadelphia wedding was captured by Magdalena Studios photographer Kelee. It took place at the Philadelphia wedding venue Ballroom At The Ben in June. This venue is by Cescaphe, home to some of the best Philadelphia wedding venues. They started the day by getting ready at a Kimpton Hotel in Old City and made their way to their ceremony with the help of Philadelphia Trolley. Their ceremony was beautiful & emotional as the couple shared personal vows they wrote for each other. 

After the ceremony, Nicole & Bill traveled to the Merchant’s Exchange Building with their bridal party for portraits. We love the way the light reflects off the marble building, it makes for the most gorgeous photos! Nicole’s bridesmaids were dressed in light purple dresses by Bella Belle Bridesmaids, which were perfect for the early months of Summer. The groomsmen blue suits added another pop of color to the neutral setting. Finally, it was time to party! The reception at Ballroom At The Ben was catered by Finley Catering and hosted by Posh DJs. It was so much capturing this sweet couple’s love! Nicole & Bill, thank you so much for having us!
