Heather and Ilya were married on 10/10/10!! They chose to do all of their formal shots before since they would be seeing each other while signing the Ketubah. They live in a beautiful home in the University City section of Philadelphia. They both got ready there which was good for getting shots of everyone- but it was a bit chaotic- lol!!! we needed to keep Ilya away from where Heather’s dress was hanging and then keep him away while she was getting ready. but it was fun!!!
They did their “first see” moment on their staircase. This was one regal looking couple. Heather looked like a queen- REALLY and Ilya was so handsome, and even had a top hat!! They really looked like they should have been in a classic film. Both of them graduated from Univ. of Penn- so that is where we did their formal group shots. There were some gorgeous spots and fun props too- like the little LOVE statue and giant button!!!
Their Ceremony was held at Shaare Shamayim. And their Reception was at Melody Restaurant- this is a Russian place to honor Ilya’s family. And What a GREAT place. They had a fabulous band that played a mix of Russian dance songs and pop songs! and food, food, food!!
We wish so many warm wishes to the both of them and are so thankful we were able to capture all their amazing moments!
