Lesley and Carlos were married in the Philadelphia neighborhood of Fishtown. We started their wedding day a little differently than most couples. We arrived over an hour early, grabbed some coffee, and with cameras down, we walked around their neighborhood, eyes wide opened. Although we had been to Fishtown a couple times, we never “saw” it the way Leslie and Carlos did. We knew that this neighborhood was a big part of not only their everyday lives together, but also their wedding. We saw Fishtown as important of a wedding detail to them as their wedding rings.
After getting ready at the incredibly awesome Wm. Mulherin's Sons hotel, Lesley and Carlos had their first look in front of one of their favorite murals with the sound of the El going by in the background. It was quintessential Fishtown.
We then continued onto Front & Palmer for their ceremony and reception. From the sweet stories the officiate told about the couple, to the ideal romantic lighting, "dreamy” is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about Lesley and Carlos’s ceremony. The entire day Lesley and Carlos had such a calm and coolness about them. They never once seemed nervous, just ready to celebrate, surrounded by their favorite people in the place they love so much.
