Kevin & Katelynn | A Black Tie New Year’s Eve Wedding at The Cescaphe Ballroom in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

January 4, 2018

I can’t believe it’s here — it feels like we have been waiting for this wedding for SO long!! The LAST wedding of our 2017 season and boy did we go out with a bang!!

New Year’s Eve weddings are always a BIG party and just so much fun. I’ve said many times that it’s a certain type of couple who hosts a NYE wedding — super social, loves to have fun, is having a big wedding, etc.! Kevin and Katelynn are no exception to this and I have to say, we had a BLAST on their day!! I’m pretty sure they had the coolest/most BA reception entrance ever … to which I turned to Caleb afterwards and said, “I want to be them.” HA! They looked like celebrities and their guests were just roaring with excitement for the night ahead! Everyone danced the night away and the energy was through the roof.

Kevin and Katelynn’s wedding brought us to Philadelphia and we had so much fun exploring and then shooting in such a charming and historic city! I am officially in love with Philly : ) To top off the charm, it snowed the day before there wedding (and you will also see it snowed a little bit ON their wedding!) which made for the most magical photos for each of our locations. I think my favorite spot was where they did their first look in Rittenhouse Square!

Katie looked absolutely STUNNING and so perfectly New Year’s Eve glam in her jeweled Hailey Paige gown and Christian Louboutin heels. To top it off, she wore her Grandmother’s fur coat that fit her perfectly (and kept her warm in the cold!). Win-win! There are several moments I was able to capture where Kevin is just looking at her with so much admiration and happiness and it makes my heat melt!! We are SO happy for these two and excited for the new life that is ahead of them : )

So, without further adieu, enjoy the last post of this season!! Kevin and Katie — we LOVE you guys! Thank you for bringing us to your stomping grounds and sharing SUCH a special day with us!! To you guys — the brand new Mr. and Mrs. Holst!!!!

Just gorgeous, Katie!!

Love this crew!!!!

Some favorites!!

When the couple has a photo of their dog on the family table …  you know they’re your people. AND you have to snap a photo!!!
